We offer subsidised neutering, microchipping and vaccination with the help of our veterinary partners. We can also help with flea and worming treatments.
Neutering is a surgical procedure to prevent your cat from reproducing. In female cats this is called ‘spaying’ and in males, it is called ‘castration’. Neutering also reduces the chance of your cat getting into a fight, roaming away from home and catching diseases such as FIV.
We offer neutering at £25 for a male cat or £40 for a female cat. This is available at the following vets: Ashbank vets (Bo'ness, Kilsyth, Lauriston/Falkirk), Clyde Vets (Lanark, Lesmahagow & Wishaw), Vets4Pets (Hamilton). To request a neutering certificate, please contact us.
Microchipping your cat gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they are lost or stolen. Microchips are safe, easy to implant and effective.
A chip around the size of a grain of rice is inserted under your cat’s skin. This microchip gives your cat their own unique code, which is stored in a database along with your contact details.
We offer microchipping at £10 per cat. Available at: Ashbank vets (Bo'ness, Kilsyth, Lauriston/Falkirk), Clyde vets (Lanark, Lesmagahow or Wishaw) and Vets4Pets (Hamilton). If interested, please contact us.
Vaccinations should be a routine part of the care of all cats throughout their life. Many of the diseases we can vaccinate against can survive outside of a cat for some time, meaning they can be transmitted inside the house, on people or objects, and are still a risk to cats via indirect exposure.
Kittens are old enough to be vaccinated once they are 8-9 weeks old, and keeping your annual vaccination appointment every year is really important for both you, and your cat.
We offer vaccinations at £25 per vaccination. This rate is available at Ashbank vets (Bo'ness, Kilsyth, Lauriston/Falkirk), Clyde vets (Lanark, Lesmahagow and Wishaw) and Vets4Pets (Hamilton). If interested, please contact us.
Flea & Worm Treatment
Cats are commonly affected by two types of worm: tapeworm and roundworm. Cats can pick up worms from a variety of sources, from eating prey such as birds or mice, from having fleas which carry worm larvae, or from their mother's milk as kittens.
Flea's are small parasites which can cause your cat a lot of itching. You’re more likely to find fleas on your cat during summer when it’s warm, but their eggs can be in your home at any time. Centrally heated homes with fitted carpets provide ideal conditions for fleas to develop all year round.
We recommend all cats are given worm and flea treatment regularly - even indoor cats. If you need financial help getting worm and flea treatment, please contact us. We can look at sending some out to you but would ask, if possible, that you make a donation in return.
