Each pet is different, and should be treated as such. Our vaccine protocol is tailored to the needs of your cat. Kittens receive a series of FVRCP (Feline Distemper) vaccines according to their age. Also, once they are old enough, they will receive a Rabies vaccine. In general, for adult cats we recommend the following: Rabies on an annual basis, FVRCP (Feline Distemper) every three years, and, if applicable, Feline Leukemia every two years. The Cat Hospital of Durham and Chapel Hill follows the vaccine protocol approved by the American Association of Feline Practioners.
