In case you are wondering why our feline vaccines are more costly than others…well, it is because we use non-adjuvanted vaccines. PURVAX by Merial is the brand of non-adjuvanted feline vaccine we use.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?????
An adjuvant is a substance that is added to a vaccine to increase the body’s immune response to that vaccine. Adjuvants have been associated with injection site reactions, injection site granulomas and chronic inflammation in cats. Injection site sarcomas (cancer) can occur with devastating consequences.They are ususally non-curative and quick to grow and spread.
