Why do the rabies? I would do the fvrcp before the rabies and i won't so either one. If your cat is not outside at all, which especially with being positive i think not, and you don't have rabid animals around, again, probably not the case, why on earth would you give a rabies shot to a positive

I have been vaccinating Harley for rabies because a bat got in the garage a couple years ago. The bat was not caught and tested. That is the only vaccine he gets, and when his FeLV progresses to an active form, I will not vaccinate him anymore. I skipped a year between vaccinations too.

Hi Kat, Thanks so much for your reply. Do you have any references or a website that covers the vaccination issue with pos. cats or are you speaking from personal experience, if so, can you share? Also, can you explain about the 'antbody problem that pos. cats have? Leo actually had to be

I know this is anecdotal, and not properly tested evidence, but my cat went from completely healthy on Monday, got her vaccinations (including for FeLV because we didn't know she had it). By Thursday evening she was gravely ill, and we had to put her down Saturday morning. I 100% believe that

THAT IS WHY I HAVE BACKED OFF FROM VACCINATIONS. ONLY HARLEY GOES OUT AND HE STAYS NEAR THE HOUSE AND ON THE DECK. THE OTHERS WILL GO OUT AND LAY IN THE SUN ON THE DECK SO I CANNOT SEE PUTTING THEM THROUGH A POSSIBLE REACTION WHEN THEY DO NOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH DOGS OR CATS AND THEY ARE

Shelley, I'm sorry I've been out of touch. These past weeks have been very hard for us. Smoosh's FVRCP was from Pfizer called FELOCELL. She had no reaction to the shots, and I got them through one of my rescues. Again, we did not do rabies as she wasn't going anywhere once she came to us, but

Okay, no need to shout lol Personally, if my vet wouldn't treat my positive unvaxxed for rabies cat, I'd find a different vet. But, vet issue aside, i totally understand her stance since the bat but her cat. Totally. On Thursday, August 14, 2014, dlg...@windstream.net wrote: SOME VETS WILL
