I wrote earlier that the latest protocol was to space the FVRCP vaccine to every three years, NOT every year, as most vets still do. I also mentioned that when a cat receives the first two, spaced a month apart, and another one year later, it should technically protect a cat for life (much like vaccines for human babies)..
This is what I found: http://www.caberfeidh.com/FelineTiters.htm The three simplest feline virues are feline panleukopenia (FPV), also known as "feline distemper" or "feline parvovirus," calicivirus (FCV) and rhinotracheitis (feline herpes virus, or FHV). (They mention only three, but most vaccines are a combination of 5 - FVRCP - Natalie) Protection against these three diseases as the result of vaccination is typically excellent and extremely long lasting (probably lifelong), although it should be noted that cats who are immune to FCV and FHV from vaccination or natural infection can still be re-infected by the viruses; they simply will not become ill, or if they do, it's very mild. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
