Broad Lane Vets are proud to have been accredited by the ISFM/International Cat Care (formerly FAB) as a "Gold Cat Friendly Clinic". This essentially means we "think cat" and are always looking for ways to make our feline friends' visit to us go purr-fectly smoothly! Please see http://www.isfm.net/catfriendlyclinic/accredited-clinics.html for more information about the scheme.
We know how stressful a trip to the vets can be for you and your cat, so to help you we are now offering *Cat-Only-Clinics on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at our Broad Lane site. This will allow your cat to have a peaceful wait without any dogs to upset them - please telephone for more information.
Your kitten’s first visit to us is about so much more than just their vaccination. We believe your new pet deserves the highest standards of care from the beginning, and our Kitten Package is designed to give your new friend the best start in life.
For only £85.00 our package** includes:
- Primary Vaccination Course (2 x injections 3-4weeks' apart) using the latest vaccines to better protect your pet
- Free Full Health Examination by a fully-qualified Veterinary Surgeon
- Free Advice - our team are here to answer your questions and concerns
- 4 weeks’ free Pet Insurance from Petplan
- Free Kitten Pack containing Kitten healthcare advice, leaflets and vouchers
- Free Flea treatment
- Free Worming treatment
- A free 5 month Development Review
- Free Nurse Clinics to guide and advise you as your new friend grows
Cat Booster Vaccination
Unfortunately the kitten vaccination course does not offer a lifetime of protection. A yearly booster is required to keep your pet safe against distressing and potentially life-threatening diseases. All Booster Vaccinations are carried out by one of our fully-qualified, experienced Veterinary Surgeons. They will perform a free full health examination of your pet and answer any queries or concerns you may have.
We advise that all pets should be microchipped, as recommended by Cats Protection and other major animal welfare organisations. Microchipping greatly increases the chances of you and your pet being reunited should they be lost or stolen. For more information visit: www.virbac.co.uk/home/backhome/pet-owner.html and watch our offers page for regular microchip promotions.
Please note that it will soon be a legal requirement for all cats to be microchipped from the 1st of June 2024.
Fleas and Worms
We offer a variety of safe, effective products to meet your needs in protecting your pet and family against parasites. Our fully-qualified Veterinary Nurses offer free appointments to advise you on these products, and can administer them if you wish.
We recommend your growing cat is neutered. Read our neutering leaflet to find out why.
