Thank you. I read through it and am still not sure what to give. I feel as if there aren’t any vets around here familiar with Dphynx, so I haven’t given my cat any since her first vet visit, she’s 5 now and is getting cold like symptoms, which she had when I got her as a kitten. Now I’m worried it’s bc she needed vaccines these past years that I e never done because my breeder said they don’t need any after the ones I took her to get.@Ode Here is the thread mentioned Vaccines
Our breeder has it in her contract NOT to give FIP or FeLV. If we do, then her contract is null/void. Our vet is onboard with this as well. We also make sure we never have 2 vaccinations on the same vet visit. Our vet says it is safer to stagger them by a couple of weeks.
We live in NY and vaccinating against rabies is required. Some states it is not a law.
Thank you! She does not have discharge when she was a kitten she did it was bad. I bought L-Lysene and she’s doing better even from just doing that. I’m calling a new vet to see if anyone is familiar with Sphynx. This was very helpful!@Ode , always best for peace of mind to bring to vet check for any cold symptoms . Ask too out seasonal allergies
What are her cold symptoms ?Any green colored eye discharge?
I personally do not over vaccinate my adoptees - it's a discussion I have had with my vet -
Like the rabies shot 3 yr amd 1 year is actually the same vaccine but labeled different bcz different state requirements etc . There is a titer test and some research has found it can last up to 10 years!
You can ask your vet about titer testing too as an option .
Years ago My Bengal kitty had a life threatening reaction to his vaccines .
my vet and I discussed it and exempted him. He lived 16 years .
It's all very individual kitty to kitty so good to chat with your vet
When I moved here I was expecting my new vet to ream me about not updating annual /vaccinating .I was a little nervous going in to be honest . To my surprise all went well amd we had a great discussion- he was treated , we had a good discussion and they did not push vaccines bssed on my kitties health.
Like mentioned I definitely would NOT do the FIP or Felv vaccine and I will not do the Lepo vaccine on my pets either .
Many vets do like the Merial brand vaccines -
Always ask what brand they use
do you give l-lysine supplement?
