Important Update for Cat Parents: Feline Vaccine Shortage

Due to supply chain issues after COVID, there’s a shortage of feline vaccines in Australia, which is expected to continue until early 2024. 
How we are planning for the vaccine shortage: We’re working tirelessly to secure more core vaccine doses, but the shortage remains. To make the most of the limited supply, we’re consulting with feline experts and vaccine manufacturers to ensure we make the most of our limited supplies.
High-risk cats: Our focus will be ensuring that previously unvaccinated kittens and adult cats deemed to be at higher risk are prioritised. Adult cats at risk include those immunocompromised or in  environments like boarding catteries, shelters, and cat shows. 
Annual health check for your cat: We urge all cat owners to schedule their cat’s annual and semi-annual health check as usual to determine what approach we should be taking for your cat, as well as making sure we identify any health conditions or health concerns that may be present.
Don’t delay health checks: Cats can hide illness well, so don’t delay this crucial connection with your cat’s health experts. 
What can we all do?: We will continue to prioritise unvaccinated kittens and high-risk adult cats. Whilst we’re doing everything possible to ensure that those most in need receive vaccinations, we appreciate that this situation may cause inconvenience to some pet families. We thank you for your patience and cooperation while navigating this shortage. Know that we are working hard to get all your cat’s vaccinations back on track as soon as possible. 
Let’s plan together: We’re here to work with you on a personalised plan based on your cat’s needs. 
Questions or concerns?: If you have questions or concerns about this vaccination shortage, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly staff to discuss your cat’s requirements

The best vet practice that I have been to. They bend over backwards to help owners out. It now takes me over an hour to drive here but it is worth it for the service you get.
