FREE Pre vaccination check

 So you’ve just collected your kitten - but it is less than nine weeks old too young to start its’ full vaccine course...    Don’t worry - and don’t delay.     

 Bring the kitten in for a free health check with one of our vets, and a cuddle  from one of the nurses!


• Primary kitten vaccinations (Full course for ’flu/enteritis/leukaemia - £49.00)

To replace the temporary protection provided through the mother’s milk your kitten will require a pair of injections given three weeks apart (usually given at 9 and 12 weeks of age).   These vaccines will protect against cat ‘flu and enteritis, with the option to also receive a vaccine against Feline Leukaemia virus.


FREE comprehensive flea and worm treatment for the first month  (usual price £7.80)  

We would recommend the use of a spot-on with a multiplicity of actions - our preferred product removes roundworm, and  controls fleas and ear mites in a single treatment.  And if your kitten is being vaccinated at the clinic, the first monthly treatment is completely free!


FREE first month on our popular in-house Healthcare Plus plan (worth £20.50)  

Healthcare Plus protects clients from the risk of large bills should their pet be injured or become ill.  For beyond the cost of the initial consultation, all in-house clinical investigations (blood tests, x-rays, scans, etc), all prescription drugs, sedatives, anaesthetics, surgical procedures and essential nursing will be covered by the scheme ...at no extra cost to the owner!   Each kitten which receives a full vaccine course, and for which full payment is made at the first consultation, will receive a month’s free membership of this increasingly popular scheme.


Full terms and conditions are available here.


20% discount on an identification chip  (discounted prices - plain £10, ‘Biotherm’ £16.25)  Discount given when the identification chip is inserted at the time of the 2nd kitten vaccination.  Identification chips implanted under the skin over the shoulder blades provide owners with a reliable and simple means of permanently identifying their pet.  The presence of an identification chip will allow a straying animal to be rapidly reunited with its owner.


• FREE 6 month pre-neutering check

We aim to recall all kittens at six months of age for a free assessment - our nurses will give your kitten a thorough look over, log its weight, check that its’ adult teeth are coming through properly, and  discuss the suitability and timing of neutering for your pet.  For owners of limited means we can neuter cats under the Cats protection voucher scheme


•  Access to the PDSA Pet Aid scheme

For those owners on qualifying benefits, and living within the CA1, CA2 or CA3 postcodes, the Centre is able to offer access to the PDSA PetAid scheme.   This scheme can offer support for the veterinary care of a registered pet such that once registered should it suffers an accident or illness treatment at the Centre will be subsidised by the charitable support.   Fuller details will be available from our reception.


•  Subsidised neutering with support from Cats Protection

The Centre is happy to accept vouchers from Cats Protection which will reduce the normal cost of neutering your kitten by either £20 (male) or £26 (female).  Fuller details will be available from our reception.


•  Access to our in-house out-of-hours emergency service

All vets are expected to make provision for the emergency care of those animals currently registered with their practice.   However not all practices in Carlisle provide this service themselves; several practices ‘out-source’ their emergency cover and an owner may be expected, in an emergency, to drive out to a practice some distance from the City for attention.   Ashlea Vets provides its own emergency service, in-house, where your normal veterinary surgeons will have full access to your pet’s clinical records.  Having your pet vaccinated at the Centre confirms your entitlement to make use of our our-of-hours service, and for the twelve months following vaccination you will receive a discount of £15 should you have need to use our emergency service.

So with all this available at Ashlea Vets

there is no need to look elsewhere!
