Ask A Veterinary Nurse Series:
What is the FVRCP vaccine for cats and do they need it?
Big Facts:
  • Comes in a 1 year or 3 year vaccine
  • Most Cats need the 1 year vaccine for 3 years, and then a Local Lakeland or Mulberry Vet will offer a 3 year- but it is a case, by case situation and a Veterinarians choice., shared food + water bowls
  • F-feline ( aka a cat!)
  • V: Viral ( aka all of these are a VIRUS)
  • R-rhinotracheitis Virus:is spread in the saliva, nasal and eye discharge and fomites ( objects or items that can carry – clothing, etc)
  • C-calicivirus : is spread in the saliva, nasal and eye discharge.
  • P-panleukopenia Virus: spread in the feces, urine, blood, saliva and nasal discharge- and items such as water and food bowls, clothing, etc
All of these have no cure, but secondary symptoms and infections can be controlled by a trained Veterinary Professional to help with potential survival rate.
