Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do for a stray cat that I have taken in, but I don't know his vaccination status?
Make an appointment with Shaffer Veterinary Services in Crowley, Texas and Dr. Dehna Shaffer will evaluate your new cat's health status. Since vaccination status is unknown, Crowley veterinarian Dr. Dehna Shaffer will recommend giving your cat a rabies shot at the time of your appointment and a booster shot 12 months later. If a 3-year vaccine is administered, your cat will need a rabies shot every 3 years thereafter. Again, for various health-related reasons, Crowley veterinarian Dr. Dehna Shaffer may elect to use a 1-year vaccine. Dr. Shaffer can advise you about vaccinations needed to protect your new cat from other diseases as well.
