AS PART OF THE VIRAL CATS CAMPAIGN 2017, WE ARE ENCOURAGING CAT OWNERS TO CHECK THAT THEIR CAT'S VACCINATIONS ARE UP TO DATE!
Did you know that 50% of cat owners don't vaccinate their cats annually*. Is your cat covered?
A recent survey of 2000 UK cat owners** has revealed that many of our furry friends aren’t being booked in for regular vaccinations; with many owners not realising that their cat needs to be vaccinated regularly to safeguard against nasty feline infections, such as Feline Infectious Enteritis, Feline Herpesvirus (FHV-1), Feline Calicivirus (FCV) and Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV).
22% of cat owners have never vaccinated their cat
62% of cat owners don’t know what diseases their cat should be vaccinated against
20% of owners don’t realise that older cats still need boosters every year
We understand that many of us struggle to find enough hours in the day, and it can often be hard to keep track of vaccinations, especially if you have more than one cat.
To see whether your cat might be in need of a check-up, why not take our short online cat health checker quiz at www.viralcats.co.uk to help determine your cat’s level of risk.
If the health checker quiz deems your cat to potentially be at risk, you’ll be able to receive a 2-for-1 vaccination offer via text message, allowing you to restart your cat’s primary vaccination course for the price of a booster***.
Booking an appointment with us is simple- just call Brookend on 01376 500038.
Don't worry if you can't get to the website or download the offer; simply contact reception and they will be able to tell you if your cat is due a vaccination. You will also still be able to claim the second vaccine free of charge, if necessary!
