I would like to give my new kitten his own vaccinations. Does he need to be tested for feline leukemia prior to the vaccination and how often do they get their shots. What is the age for rabies? How often do they get that vaccine as well. Also is it the same vaccine for dogs and cats?
Kittens should be tested for leuk prior to vacc for leuk b/c it can exacerbate the dz. Vac schedule as follows;
8 wks: FVRCP
11 wks: FVRCP and LEUK
14 wks: FVRCP, LEUK, RABIES
Rabies vacc for cats is the same for dogs. Vaccine boosters are given one time yearly. Good luck, vetcare
