it also pays to ring around- as i found last week. i rang in total 6 vets in area to enquire about prices for annual booster vaccination for 2 moggies, and prices ranged from £29.99 (cippenham) to £58.60 (windsor) per cat! eeek! had to call the £29.99 vets again to double check that they quoted me correctly!

Yeah think I will do. My local isn't participating in this this year but were quite cheap last year. So will compare them to the Vets that are participating to see which works out cheaper.

fabulous offer, please share with as many as you can.

will look into this one thanks, shame i have just done the cat but my bunnies need doing

isnt it a bit misleading to show the cost as £30, if that's a discount not a price, or am i misunderstanding this?

Vaccinations costs vary from surgery to surgery, so couldnt put an exact figure in there. To post the deal though I had to put something in there. As mentioned before worth checking prices in other local surgeries before taking this offer up as it might work out cheaper without the voucher elsewhere.

I'm going back to my local, after phoning around I found them to be cheaper without voucher.

Hopefully this will help a few people though! :thumbsup:

This offer also depends on what brand of vaccine the practice uses. I'm a RVN and our practice only uses the dog & rabbit vaccines within the brand that is on offer. Hense we are only offering this to dogs and rabbits.

It is worth phoning your own vet first to see if they are taking part in the scheme (I know the website will detail this but last year it was wrong for us). And asking them if you are eligable.

Fantastic deal and I hope lots of you make use of it :thumbsup:

I agree. For all we know, the vets may have just put up their prices a month ago and now say they are offering a discount to the value of the increase. A good method of getting new customers :w00t:

Do vaccinations affect the Organic status of rabbits? I like to eat healthy :whistling:

Pmsl :whistling:

does nobody else find this pointless?

if you look after your animals correctly then you'll be getting their booster vaccination every year...

the voucher entitles you to a PRIMARY course of injections for the price of a single booster vaccination, which you can only have if your dog hasn't had a vaccine for 18 months.

so basically, its encouraging dog owners who don't get the annual booster that they should to spend the same amount of money they would have done on a booster to get their dog restarted on the vaccination course.

STUPID!!! doesn't benefit us careful dog owners whatsoever!!!

This is not only pointless its down right dangerous the merits of vaccinating anually are debatable at best but to give a restart is causing stress to the immune system

what exactly are the vaccinations for anyway? My cats havent had any for years and never did find out what they were for?

good find thanks

thanks! my bunny will be happy :-)

Personally whilst I would always vacinate a puppy I wouldnt do the annual boosters; in USA the practise is generally frowned upon by vets as it can adversly affect the immune system. A vets comments would be interesting preferably not one who has a vested interest in profiting by the treatment

I don't beleive in vacinating dogs every year. I only vacinate when a puppy and not again as I feel its not a good idea to upset the immune system. Lets face we don't vacinate our kids every year. This is a good money earner for the vets

I'm not disputing you facts (you may be right, I have no idea about the vaccines) but on what basis have you decided to not "believe" in vaccinating dogs every year? We don't vaccinate our kids every year because the injections we get don't require it every year - maybe it does in dogs.

most kennels will not board dogs that arte not innoculated so if you wish to board your dog whilst on holiday then vaccination is is a must have. If this offer means more pets vaccinated then got to be hot from me

Granted, animals who have have vaccs annually for a long period of time do build up an immunity so it has been shown that in low risk cases vaccinations are negligable. However, this scheme is designed to get animals vaccinated who normally wouldn't be. Ie-the irrisponsible owners that home/breed animals without being able to pay for them. Believe me there are plenty of irrisponsible owners out there and I see them on a regular basis unfortunatley.

The fact that this has been opened up to the general public I think is a bonus, if anyone can save a bit off the cost and they were planning on getting them vaccinated anyway then that's a plus.

Cheers for that. Still cant see how its a deal as for all we know, there is no discount whatsoever as the vets may have just put the prices up before applying this discount.

If you look after your animals correctly you won't vaccinate anually , and its best to leave a pup to 6months as its immune systen will be able to handle that assult of rubbished bpumped DIRECTly into its bloodstream , that is not the normal way a disease would enter your system !
Google dogs and vaccines , the truth is out there !1
