Vaccinations and Veterinarian Recommendations
While anatomically the Bengal is like any other domestic cat, there are some recommended protocols that are unique. Please, never lose site of the fact that these are hybrids! Consider that many/most domestic breeds have been around for thousands of years, even back to Ancient Egyptian times. Through natural selection, most cats bring some natural immunities “to the table”, so to speak. The Asian Leopard has none of these. Therefore, the Bengal, who is only about 35 years young, has a very slow to develop immune system. For that reason, we recommend a conservative approach.
In most cases, your kitten was vaccinated for Panleukopenia, Calicivirus, Rhinotracheitis and Chlamydia using a killed vaccine at 10 weeks. The normal protocol would include one more booster at fourteen weeks, and then one year. Boosters are recommended every three years after that.
