Cat Vaccinations Explained

Annual Boosters: check up time

After your kitten’s first year vaccinations they will need to have a booster once a year to stay protected. This is a great chance for your vet to check the general health of your cat, answer any questions and update things such as  deworming.

Kittens start their vaccines at 9 weeks and have a second booster at 12 weeks. A single booster vaccination each year is then given.

The diseases we vaccinate cats against can cause great illnesses. Vaccination is the most reliable way of protecting our pets.

In Dubai, pets must have a registration tag each year, when rabies is given.

Cats who go outside are at risk from FIV, an incurable virus that has no vaccine.
