Considered as necessary for all cats, they offer protection against the following viruses: feline panleukopenia virus (FPV), which causes a highly and often fatal contagious disease that is marked by fever, vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration; feline herpes virus (FHV), which causes severe upper respiratory distress; feline calicivirus (FCV), which causes infection of the respiratory system and ulcers of the oral cavity; and the rabies virus, which causes inevitably fatal disease affecting the central nervous system.
