The FVRCP vaccine combines several core vaccines that should be administered to all felines, The FVRCP vaccine includes the following essential vaccines:
- FVR protects against the feline viral rhinotracheitis, a respiratory infection caused by the herpes virus 1. This infection, also known as feline influenza can advance and affect the lungs and may even be fatal in some pets. This is transmitted through direct contact with bodily fluids.
- C stands for the feline calicivirus, which may also cause an upper respiratory infection easily contracted through bodily fluids.
- P designates the potentionally fatal feline panleukopenia virus that causes the cat distemper, which can be transmitted through bodily fluids, feces or fleas.
This vaccine is generally recommended for outdoor cats and is a 1 year vaccine.
Feline leukemia is a retrovirus and is transmitted from infected cats when the virus is shed in saliva, nasal secretions, urine and feces or from the milk of an infected cat. Transfer can also occur from a bite wound or during mutual grooming.
This is a yearly vaccine.
Rabies is a viral disease that specifically affects a cat's central nervous system. The incubation of rabies is, on average, between one and three months, but can be as little as a day and up to a year. It is transmitted through a bite from a disease carrier: foxes, raccoons, skunks, and bats. It can take up to a month to develop, but once the symptoms have begun, the virus progresses rapidly.
