The Standard Vaccination Course costs £55.00 in total and includes the parts described below.
There is a 10% discount for appointments on either Tuesday or Thursday.
A full health check is carried out by a fully qualified and experienced veterinary surgeon. Heart and lungs a checked together with mouth, teeth, ears and skin etc.
Advice on requirements for worm treatments and fleas, and free sample of a prescription only preparation to treat worms and fleas is provided. This preparation is simply dripped onto the skin at the back of the neck.
From seven weeks old onwards, and preferably 8 weeks, an injection is given which will provide immunity against the three diseases shown below in section 6. This injection is given just under the skin at the back of the neck and is quite painless.
Three weeks after the first injection, and no earlier than nine weeks of age, a further injection, a booster injection is given which increases dramatically the immunity provided by the first injection.
Your pet will be safe to go outside and mix with other cats seven days after the final vaccination injection. We recommend that your pet receives an booster vaccination at the time of the annual health check, that is, one year later.
The diseases which this course provides protection against are as follows:
This course includes a microchip which is implanted between the shoulder blades. When an appropriate scanner is placed near the chip it reveals a number in the scanner and that number is registered to your details. If your pet gets lost and is taken to a sanctury or vet surgery it will be scanned and your contact details will be discovered.
The microchip is registered with the main database and the cost of this is included with the course.
Additionally, our Advanced Course also includes a vaccination to protect against Feline Leucaemia Virus, FeLV. The incidence of this virus varies and can be as high as 15% in some areas. It is also much more common in multi-cat housholds. Kittens are more susceptible than adults. Risk decreases with age but never drops to zero.
Therefore kittens and any cat that may come into contact with other cats should be vaccinated against FeLV
When the course is completed we provide you with a vaccination booklet that acts as a certificate of vaccination. If you put you cat into a cattery when you go on holiday, they will want to see this document to ensure that your pet has been vaccinated
