Dear Cat owners,
We are very pleased to announce that the Feline Purevax Rabies is now available in a 3 Year vaccine.
The Doctors at Animal & Bird Hospital are committed to keeping your cat healthy. Vaccines have always been part of that care. But like all medical products and procedures, there is some risk. Although uncommon, serious vaccine reactions have been documented in cats vaccinated for rabies. Sarcoma cancer formation at the injection site is the most serious of these reactions.
In Pinellas County, there is a mandatory rabies vaccination for both dogs and cats. Worldwide, rabies is the fourth leading cause of human deaths, following snakes, other humans, and mosquitoes. When our pets are vaccinated, human cases of rabies are decreased.
Using Purevax Rabies will significantly reduce the risk of a Rabies induced sarcoma. This is why we will carry this vaccine in both 1 Year and 3 year vaccines. There is a significant price increase for this particular vaccine, but we believe it is worth switching to Purevax.
You have come to depend on us to take the very best care of your cat. We know that using Purevax is the best way to achieve this goal.
