Your adult cat needs to be vaccinated with FVRCP(feline viral rhinotracheitis,calicivirus and panleukopenia),FeLV(feline leukemia) and rabies.
The feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is similar to the human AIDS virus. It is a virus that can remaindormant in the cat for a long period of time. A cat that appears perfectly healthy in all respects may harborthe virus and spread it to other cats. Kittens can be exposed to the virus in the womb or through nursing. It isalso spread in the saliva by fighting, mating, grooming each other, and sharing food and water bowls. Intact,outdoor cats, especially males are at the highest risk of contracting the virus. Cats in households with more thanthree cats are also at a higher risk.
We HIGHLY recommend a routine FeLV test on all cats with no known FeLV test status. An FeLV/FIV test would be recommended for all sick, previously untested cats. Cats suffering from chronic, non-responsive illnesses should be tested for FeLV/FIV, regardless of vaccination status because the vaccine is not100% effective at preventing illness.
An FeLV-infected cat is susceptible to many types of infections and may live a variable amount oftime after diagnosis. Approximately 1/3 of cats are able to clear the disease; the rest will eventually die fromit. The FeLV vaccination is far from 100% effective, but it is the best current technology has to offer. Timelyneutering and spaying greatly reduces the risk of FeLV exposure. Any cat diagnosed with FeLV does not needto be immediately euthanized, but should not be allowed outdoors to potentially infect other cats.
