We always have a discussion about pet insurance with our clients. It usually happens at our second puppy vaccination, when we have our little young healthy puppies coming in. Pet insurance is a really good idea because pets are part of our families and taking care of their health can be expensive, especially in times of emergencies where critical care is necessary.
There are three core cat vaccinations that every single cat should get. We call the core vaccinations the F3. They cover feline herpes virus, feline calicivirus, and a condition called feline panleukopaenia. If you tested every cat to see if they had been exposed to these viruses, it would be around 85 to 90 per cent have seen them at some point in their life. But there’s a catch with vaccinations—not all cats can get them, and they have to be tailored to every individual cat.
