Default Voucher for help with cat/dog vaccinations

Official MoneySavingExpert.com Insert:

March is being promoted as Vaccination Month (supported by PDSA). If you've never had your cat or dog vaccinated or the last time they were was over 18 months ago then download the voucher on the Vaccination Month website and you can get up to £30 off the cost of your vaccinations. The offer also applies to rabbits if they've not been vaccinated in the last 9 months. Fill in the form to download the voucher and it'll tell you which vets are participating.

Thanks to MoneySaver standingupformyself for the top spot.

Default 30 towards pet vaccinations

Sorry if this has already been posted on another thread, I haven't seen it, but it may well be buried somewhere already??

PDSA are offering a £30 voucher for pets that are over 18 months old and haven't been vaccinated for over 18 months, for the month of march.

http://www.vaccinationmonth.co.uk/

The site will also identify local participating vets for you.

EDIT NOTE: Thanks to the forum for moving the post to the relevant thread that I had missed when I originally started a new thread (just in case any one reads this and thinks "duh, why has she posted to a thread already up and running!")

The other good thing about this is ves that opt in, probably really care about animals.
Mine seems to be just in it for the charges.
I know its not cheap, but he makes you feel like they try & squeeze every last cent from you.
I'm off to find a good local vet

At our practice we have had no contact to be involved in this particular scheme, this is the first I've heard of the vouchers! We have been aware of the vaccination month and we are running a scheme so that people whose older animals have missed vaccinations can restart for the price of a normal booster.

My point is just that vets on the list are not necessarily better or more caring.. they've just been invited to join!! I think its related to which brand of vaccinations you use but thats irrelevant really.

I have just had mine done!!!! my registered vet was doing this promotion anyway. The first lot of jabs cost me 47 as i went for everything + feline lukemia, and then the next lot in 3 weeks is free.


I dont have my pets done every year as i have seen so much research that it is unnecessary as the protection does not run out for a good few years, and can also cause more problems by over-vaccinating.

My vet has never had a problem with this, and he treats my cat no differently.

I have not had her vaccinated since 2001 until today and then that will probably last her another 6-7 more years.

If she has ever been unwell she is taken straight to the vet, and treated immediately so we are responsible pet owners!!!

Each owner has to make there own decision but i personally feel over-vaccination can cause problems.

I found two local vets that were in it & rang both yesterday.

I wanted to know just the "normal" regular price anyway, as I'm not very impressed with the local vets & wanted to know which done the jabs cheapest as they may be the most reasonable for other things.

The first one want £52 for just the normal booster & had never heard of the scheme & suggested I ring their other store to see if they were running it:rolleyes:

The second one quoted £40 & started to tell me about the scheme without realising I already had a voucher, how nice
Needless to say hes booked in next Saturday, they are town centre, but have a car park

Those jab prices are for everything + feline lukemia.

be aware, this is for a full course of vaccinations, not a booster, if you read the small print the dog is having the entire course restarted, but if your dog only needs a booster then you arent saving any money, even if your booster is 18 months overdue you do not need to restart a full course of vaccinations?
something missing

As I've been quoted 40 & 52 for the same cat jab (everything + feline lukemia).
I would love to hear what others have been charged?

Perhaps dog owners would like to compare too?

This voucher is only valid for animals that are well overdue boosters or have never had any vaccinations to try and encourage pet owners to vaccinate their animals. Wish it did cover all animals though I've just paid for boosters for my 2 cats
