With the holiday season fast approaching, please take a moment to dig out your cats vaccination card.
This is as important as checking that your own Passport is in date, otherwise you won't be going on holiday.
If you can't find your cats card, visit or make a call to your vets to check if kitty is still in date.
Your vets will be happy to email you proof of vaccination if you have mislaid your card.
It is important you do this sooner rather than later to give yourself time to sort before your holiday.
If your cats' vaccinations have lapsed and are out of date by more than 3 months, it is likely that you will need to start the course again rather than having just a single booster jab.
If you need to start the course again, you will need to have the first vaccination followed by another between 3-4 weeks later.
It is also advisable to leave any visit to a cattery for a further 2 weeks to allow your cat to build their immunity.
On arrival at your cattery, staff will need to see proof of your cats vaccination to comply with the terms of their license agreement with the local council.
