Unfortunately, we have been informed by our suppliers of a national shortage of cat vaccines due to the ongoing and increasing global demand for vaccines.
We have a small supply available to us until this issue is resolved, which we are hopeful will be by the end of the year, but it may take until mid-January for supplies to be back to normal.
As such, we have had to take the decision to postpone all cat boosters for adult cats until they are 3 months overdue, just as we did with previous supply issues, as we have been assured by the vaccine manufacturers that their immunity will last to this point if they have been fully vaccinated in the past.
This does NOT include kitten vaccination courses and 1-year-old cats receiving their first booster – vaccination is critical to maintaining immunity at these stages so we will be prioritising our remaining vaccine for these higher-risk patients and continue to book these appointments as needed.
We would like to stress that there is currently no issue with dog vaccines.
We will update you as the situation changes – as ever, we are doing the best we can in challenging times and appreciate your understanding.
