Wellness and Vaccine for Dog & Cat
FVRCP – is a three-way vaccine that protects against Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia.
- Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis – is caused by the Feline Herpesvirus-1 and is a major cause of upper respiratory disease in cats, and is the most common cause of conjunctivitis (inflammation of the tissues surrounding the eye). A kitten that has been infected at a young age may have breakouts throughout its life.
- Feline Calicivirus (FCV) is a virus of the family Caliciviridae that causes disease in cats. It is one of the two important viral causes of respiratory infection in cats, the other being feline herpesvirus. FCV can be isolated from about 50% of cats with upper respiratory infections. Another sign is stomatitis – inflammation in the mouth.
- Feline Panleukopenia Virus (FPV), is a viral infection also known as feline infectious enteritis. It is highly contagious among cats and can be fatal. The name panleukopenia comes from the low white blood cell count in affected cats.
Rabies – is a 100% fatal disease in mammals. Because there is no effective treatment and the disease can also infect humans, vaccination against the rabies virus is required by state law. It is required even for indoor animals.
Feline Leukemia (FeLV) – is a disease that impairs the cat’s immune system and is associated with certain types of cancer. It is caused by a retrovirus, so named because of the way it behaves within infected cells. We recommend this vaccine for cats that go outside or live with another cat that does go outside.
