New Feline Vaccination Guidelines Released-Timing and Location of Shots Changed From Previous Years

New vaccinations guidelines-what's given when and where. Link to full report in the article:
"The panel has recommended some changes in the location of vaccine administration as well. In order to facilitate tumor removal if a vaccine produces a sarcoma, it suggests vaccinating even lower on the leg than in the 2006 guidelines. Respiratory virus vaccines should be given below the right elbow, rabies vaccines should be given below the knee of the right rear leg, and the FeLV vaccination should be given below the knee of the left rear leg. On the other hand, the panel says that vaccinations should absolutely not be given between the shoulders or on the upper legs and hips."
