Protect Your Feline Friend Against Feline AIDS

We are talking about FIV (Feline AIDS) today as we recenty treated a case here at the clinic and thought that it might be a good idea to remind the community that there are steps that you can take to protect your Feline Friends against this nasty disease.

Caused by feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV), feline AIDS is just as you would imagine it with the cat’s immune system malfunctioning, resulting in a host of secondary problems.

How do you keep your cat protected?

You have two options, the simplest being never let your cat roam outside as infection occurs when one cat bites another. But what about cats that demand time outdoors.

These cats need the protection of a vaccination.

Once the initial course has been administered you can then bundle this vaccination in with the cat’s annual vaccination/wellness Exam to make it easier.

For more information about FIV please contact the clinic on 03 5443 3322 and we can make sure that we keep your feline family purring for years to come.
