* FVRCPC Vaccination protects against the following viruses:
Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis caused by a herpes virus and Feline Calicivirus, both virus' result in similar illnesses, characterized by nasal and ocular discharge, conjunctivitis, ulcers or the oral cavity anorexia, depression and inflammation of the upper respiratory tract.
Chlamydia psittaci bacteria are less common causes of feline respiratory disease but can increase the severity of FVR or FCV infections.
Feline Panleukopenia, known as the feline distemper is highly contagious and often fatal disease in cats. The disease is caused by a parvovirus transmitted by contact with infected cats, their feces or environmental contamination. It is highly resistant and capable of surviving in the environment for months. Signs of infection include fever, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, dehydration and abdominal pain.
Once the initial booster vaccinations are given it is recommended to vaccinate annually on this vaccination.
Our FVRCPC Vaccinations include the Annual Exam.
