Question from Genevieve Menino

Hi There! I have two cats that I’ve had since they where young adult >1yr or kitten age and I have always been curious as to what vaccines are necessary for them? I have asked my vet to just give them their shots as they are in good health and are in door, but the vet will not just give them their shots without doing a fecal sample. I love my cats like they are my babies, but I dont’ have $300 dollars to spend on a fecal test when they are healthy indoor cats and they just need their shots. Am I being unreasonable thinking this is unnecessary testing? Please advise! Thank you very much in advance, your help is greatly appreciated! Genevieve

Our Vet Says:

To give a shot the cats need to be healthy and for that it is a must to have them dewormed. In my opinion you don’t need to have the fecal test if you treat your cats regularly against internal parasite every 3 -4 months and administer dewormers 7-10 days before the shot.
