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.
