At Cat’s Corner we follow the vaccination guidelines of the American Association of Feline Practitioners which promotes safer and less frequent vaccination protocols. We use the safest, most effective vaccine brand available on the market for cats called PUREVAX® by Merial®. These are the leading non-adjuvanted vaccines.
Adjuvanted vaccines can present potential risks to feline patients such as, injection site reactions, injection site granuloma, and chronic inflammation**. Here at Cat's Corner Veterinary Hospital, we use ONLY Purevax® vaccines for the safety of our feline patients.

Did you know that cats are very good at hiding signs of illness? This is why preventive care examinations for all cats need to occur on a regular basis. Young healthy cats and senior cats need to be seen at a minimum of once yearly for examinations. Geriatric patients and those with chronic conditions need to be seen twice yearly for examinations. These visits are important to your cat’s individualized healthcare plan. Some things that will be discussed and assessed are your cat’s nutrition, lifestyle, environmental enrichment, disease, parasite prevention, and behavior. Cats age more rapidly than we do so preventive care examinations are a crucial part of a healthy lifestyle. During the physical examination, our veterinarians can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s health long before they become significant, allowing you and us to manage or cure them before they become painful or more costly. You are an important member of your cat’s healthcare team. You can be instrumental in helping your cat live a happy and healthy quality of life.
