Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

In regards ***** ***** question, we'd not vaccinate a pregnant cat until after she has given birth, as some of the vaccines can harm the fetuses. In fact, we'd only vaccinate pregnant cats if there was a serious risk of an outbreak but then most of those agents we vaccinate against wouldn't cause such an outbreak that we'd need to risk her little ones.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
