secondary = bordetella, Leptospirosis, corona-virus, coccidia, rattlesnake, west nile virus

start DHPP at 6-8 weeks of age.  Booster every 3-4 weeks until 12-16 weeks of age.  Rabies can be given at 12-16 weeks (preferably 16 weeks).  Vax as instructed by manufacturer for optional vaccines.


Primary= Rabies and FVRCP

(Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis or upper respiratory or herpes, Calicivirus, panleukopenia or feline parvovirus)

secondary= FeLv or leukemia

Give FVRCP at 8-9 weeks of age.  Booster every 3-4 weeks until 12-16 weeks.  Rabies can be given 12-16 weeks of age-preferably 16 weeks.  FeLv needs one booster in 3-4 weeks.

bord/feLv                        bord/feLv


-If H.S./breeder starts early, more vx given every 3-4 wks until 12-16 weeks of age

-the exact weeks can be off a little, just booster Q3-4 wks apart

-rabies OK 12-16 wks, later is better
