Cat Vaccine Shortage

How we are dealing with the Europe-wide feline vaccine shortage

The Europe-wide supply issue with cat vaccines continues, meaning we have access to a very limited supply.

We have since had to reserve vaccines for the most vulnerable patients in order to best protect the cat population as a whole. 

In order to do this, we are prioritising vaccinations and are extending the interval for boosters in older cats to 15 months (normally 12 months).

Please note that the risk to cats with a good vaccination history in a low-risk environment is minimal.

We will supply further information as it becomes available.

*We have a letter available for cattery owners which explains these issues. Please contact the practice if you require a copy.
