Cat Vaccinations

Feline vaccines are an integral part of your cat’s health care and just one way to aid in your cat living a long and healthy life. Each year, during your cat’s physical exam, vaccines will be administered to ensure that your cat’s immune system is strong enough to defend your cat against certain viruses. Vaccines prevent illnesses by producing an immune response should your pet come in contact with a disease. If your pet is not protected by these vaccines, and does come in contact with various viruses, they can become very sick.

Does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?

It is always a good idea to vaccinate your pets, even if they are strictly inside. You never know when a virus will show up. Some viruses can be transmitted on our clothing and passed along to your beloved pet.

What is FVRCP and core vaccine for cats?

The FVRCP vaccine helps protect your cat from Feline Rhinotracheitis Virus (upper respiratory disease), Calicivirus, and Panleukopenia (a severe disease of the gastrointestinal tract, immune system, and nervous system).

How often does my adult cat need vaccination?

Vaccines are just one way you can ensure your pet has a long and healthy life. Each year, your cat needs to visit their veterinarian for a physical exam. During that exam, their vaccines will be brought up to date to ensure diseases are prevented.

Are there any risk associated with vaccines?

Vaccines are the safest way to prevent disease. Although just like everything we do in life, there is always a small risk. However, our veterinarians feel that the rewards definitely outway the risks of the diseases that they prevent.

Rebecca Schofield Community Event

Riverview Animal Hospital helped last week to build the Rebecca Schofield All World Super Play Park. It was a huge community event with over 2, 583 volunteers that built a giant accessible playground for all of Greater Moncton's Children to enjoy. Rebecca Schofield is Riverview New Brunswick's international celebrity. In 2016, at 16 years old Rebecca became ill, what was thought to be the flu turn into a diagnosis of Brain Cancer. In the short time before her death in 2018, Rebecca started a global movement, by inspiring people around the world to simply be kind to one another. Her hashtag #beccatoldmeto is to this day still seen all over the world as people perform random acts of kindness. Her legacy lives on making the world a better place one act of kindness at a time. We were very proud to be able to do our small part in helping to build the playground. We know that Becca's legacy will carry on for years to come, and I know the team at RAH will think of her every time we see the smiles of children as they play on their new beautiful playground.
