The information provided in tabs below are the Vaccinations recommended by our Vets & descriptions of the vaccines to help keep your furry friends happy and healthy.
At NAC our Feline Combo & Feline Rabies Vaccinations are Non Adjuvanted.
An adjuvant is an irritating chemical along with the virus or bacteria that are added into some types of vaccines in order to boost the immune response and ensure protection.
Studies have shown that adjuvants can cause Vaccine Site Sarcoma (VSS). Which is a malignant and often fatal cancer. The risk of this occurring is extremely low, estimated between 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 30,000 cats.
However because we want the best for our patients, we use the Non Adjuvanted vaccinations on our feline friends. These vaccinations are specially formulated to eliminate the need for an adjuvant and allow for safe inoculation with little to no risk of tumor formation and are just as effective as their Adjuvanted counterparts.

Then we give the Feline Combo 3 year Vaccination every 3 years after that.
