FVRCP (Feline Distemper)
Panleukopenia (feline distemper) is a highly contagious, viral disease of cats. The symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea and seizures. Panleukopenia is usually fatal in unvaccinated kittens. Vaccination for feline distemper is recommended for ALL cats.
Feline Leukemia (Felv)
Feline leukemia is an incurable virus that is transmitted between cats through saliva, nasal secretions and bite wounds. Mother cats can pass feline leukemia to their kittens. Infected cats can live for many years before showing signs of the disease. We recommend all outdoor cats be tested for feline leukemia every year and vaccinated if the are negative.
Rabies is a very serious, fatal disease that is often carried by raccoons, bats and skunks. Rabies can also be transmitted to humans. For this reason, most cities in Minnesota REQUIRE all cats to be vaccinated against rabies. We recommend ALL cats be vaccinated against rabies.
