MCAH does not use vaccines containing containing adjuvants, chemical additives, or vaccines produced in foreign live material. In most cases, our vaccines are produced through recombinant DNA technology, Such vaccines are safer and have a much lower possibility of causing a reaction.

Felines, especially cats roaming outside or mixing with other cats, should definitely be vaccinated against Feline Diseases. The suggested vaccination schedule is as follows.

At 6 to 8 weeks old

The FVRCP Core Vaccine made up of three vaccines in one injection (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calici, panleukopenia) and should be administered at 6 to 8 weeks of age and as boosters every 3 to 4 weeks thereafter until 16 weeks old If started at 6 weeks, then at 9, 12 and 16 weeks. Thereafter, boosters at one year, two years, and a booster every three years after that.

Initial deworming (against roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, tapeworms) administered and repeated every 2 to 3 weeks until 16 weeks of age.

Initial application of topical parasite control (fleas, ticks, lice), repeated every month if indicated.

At 12 weeks

Initial Leukemia vaccine, (FELV), booster four weeks later, then yearly.

At 16 weeks

Rabies vaccine, booster in one year, and then every three years thereafter.

Parasite Control

We strongly suggest administering year-around broad spectrum parasite controls effective against heartworm, intestinal parasites, fleas, and ticks. Control of those parasites which may be transmitted to humans is very important (worms, etc.)
