Caring for Your Cat After He Gets His Shots


It’s routine for a cat to receive shots. Kittens may receive more than one in the same day, while older cats will likely have to have at least one shot every year. Fortunately, caring for a cat after he’s had shots is pretty easy.

Shots can be painful, but they aren’t overly so. However, the injection site can ache or feel tender for a few days after the shot is administered. Try not to handle your cat roughly in this area while it rests and heals up.

Inspect the injection area over the next few days to make sure no problems are developing. You shouldn’t be able to see where the shot was placed, and the area should be free of swelling and inflammation.
