The records I got from the National Animal Welfare Trust showed that they were last injected on 11th December 2015 and are therefore due their next vaccination this month. The two injections appear to be Nobivac TRICAT TRIO and Nobivac FeLV.
My question is, do I need to get their boosters again? From researching online, it appears that if a cat is 3+ years old (James and Robin are nearly 4 now we believe) and live 100% of their time indoors, then they do not need boosters. However, I have e-mailed Medivet who advise for James as follows:
Now if the above is accurate, I am happy to get James vaccinated. However, I don't want to put him through the stress of being put in his cage and taken down to the vets (based on his history of being abandonded) if the boosters are not necessary..... we do recommend to vaccinate with yearly booster cats positive for FIV, as in your cats situation, despite indoor lifestyle. The reason behind this is that FeLV and RC are viruses that can travel very easy in environmental, and it can be carried in household by air (if windows are open) or by shoes, or any other person that visits the household (which they can or not have cats). Prevent them for rest RCP and FeLV will reduce the risk of getting sick and boost immune system against them.
So do both of the cats require a booster? Just James? Or neither of them?
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
