Does a cat need vaccination?

 This issue is often discussed in specialized forums and distributed in veterinary clinics. It would seem that with walking cats everything is clear. They are in daily contact with other animals, which means they need vaccinations. But what if a cat never leaves the apartment? Does she need a vaccination?
In practice, specialists do not distinguish between walking and domestic cats. Vaccination is indicated both first and second. Moreover, this is not just a recommendation, but a mandatory measure – the key to safety of both the pet itself and those around it.

But how can a domestic cat become infected? To answer this question, let’s see how viruses spread. Most often, the virus is transmitted by airborne droplets. An example is the following sequence: a sick cat sneezes and releases cells damaged by the virus into the air, a healthy cat inhales them, and infection occurs through its mucous membrane.

There is another way of infection – oral-fecal. Example: an infected cat sniffs the feces of a sick cat and becomes infected.
Do cats need vaccinations?
And now back to the pets. They do not visit the street, which means they do not come into contact with potentially sick animals and their metabolic products. It really is. Nevertheless, the possibilities of infection are mass. Here are the main ones.
The virus brings a dog into the house. Your cat may not be on the street, but a dog can bring unpleasant surprises from the outside world into the house.
The virus enters the host. Even if you don’t have a dog, the virus can enter the house on your shoes or clothes. Many viruses are very viable and quite successfully “travel” with the remains of excrement on the soles of shoes or on clothes. For example, the owner of a sick animal that you encountered in a pet store or veterinary pharmacy can “share” the virus with you. If your cat sniffs infected shoes or clothes at home, it will become sick.
The virus is introduced with grass from the street. Almost all cats chew fresh, green grass with pleasure. But not all owners purchase oats at a pet store. Many do it on their own and pick grass in the country or right in the yard. Do not repeat this mistake: the risk of infection through grass is very high!
Force Majeure. Do not forget about unforeseen circumstances. Life is full of surprises. Unfortunately, it cannot be guaranteed that the cat will not run out of the apartment into the ajar door or, for example, will not run away from carrying along the road to the veterinary clinic. Imagine how vulnerable her body will be to the surrounding viruses?
There is only one conclusion: there should be vaccinations. And it doesn’t matter whether your pet is a walker or a hereditary homebody. Timely vaccinations protect the pet from dangerous diseases, many of which can be fatal. This is a case when it’s not worth the risk.

Be responsible: vaccinate your pets!
