貓隻預防保健 Preventative Healthcare Schedule for Cats

 

一、貓隻的預防疫苗

幼貓必須分別在個月大時接種預防疫苗,此後每年注射一次。疫苗可預防之疾病包括鼻氣管炎、白血球減少症、卡他性病毒。

 

二、狂犬病疫苗

香港沒有法例規定貓只需要接種狂犬病疫苗。如果貓只需要出境的時候,便可能需要接種狂犬病疫苗。如有任何問題,請向獸醫診所查詢。

 

三、寄生蟲

腸胃寄生蟲包括鉤蟲、蛔蟲、鞭蟲、條蟲。三個月以下幼貓須要每兩星期杜蟲一次;三至六個月大之幼貓須要每四星期杜蟲一次;六個月以上之貓只須要每三至六個月杜蟲一次。

 

四、跳蚤預防

貓只需要每月使用獸醫推薦產品預防跳蚤,如:FrontlineRevolutionAdvocate。詳細資料請向獸醫診所查詢。

 

五、絕育手術

我們建議當貓只滿六個月大時進行絕育手術,如貓只在年幼時行絕育手術,可有助減低患上乳癌的風險、子宮發炎及隨處便溺的行為問題。

 

1. Vaccination

Kittens must be vaccinated at 2, 3 and 4 months of age and annually thereafter against the following infectious diseases: Rhinotracheitis Virus, Panieukopenia Virus and Calici Virus.

 

2. Rables Vaccination

There is no legal requirement for cats to be vaccinated against rabies in Hong Kong.  However, most cats travelling to another country will require a rabies vaccination prior to export.

 

3. Intestinal Worming

Intestinal worms that affect cats include hookworm, roundworm, whipworm and tapeworm.  Kittens require worming every fortnight until 3 months, monthly until 6 months and 3 monthly thereafter for the rest of their adult life.

 

4. Flea Treatment

Cats should be treated for fleas with a veterinary product such as Frontline, Revolution or Advocate every month.

 

5. Desexing

We recommend surgical desexing of cats at 6 months of age.  Early desexing reduces the risk of mammary cancer, uterine infection, and unwanted behavior such as urine marking.
