Cost Of Kitten Vaccinations And Neutering

Vaccinating your cat against infectious diseases, as well as microchipping and neutering your cat are some of the most important aspects of cat care. While most adult felines adopted from Cats Protection will have had all three, you’ll need to make sure your kitten has had all necessary treatments.

Description

Prices can vary from practice to practice and costs will depend on which vaccinations your cat or kitten receives. Speak to your vet to see if they offer a health care plan for your pet. These allow you to spread the cost of preventative veterinary treatment, such as regular health checks, annual vaccinations and flea and worm treatments. We might be able to help with vet costs if you meet our eligibility criteria.

Vaccinations help to protect your cat from severe infectious diseases. It also prevents them from passing anything nasty on to other animals in your area. Vaccinating your kitten is one of the most important things you should do in your first few weeks as a cat owner. Your kitten will need two sets of vaccinations to get them started – their first set at nine weeks old and a second booster set at three months old. After this, kittens and cats usually need ‘booster’ vaccinations once a year. Until your kitten is fully vaccinated (and neutered), you should keep him or her inside. Neutering your cat is a simple operation, with many health benefits. Essential for preventing unwanted kittens and reducing the spread of disease, it is advised that owners neuter their cat from four months of age or younger.
