Cat vaccine shortages

You may have read about supply issues with cat vaccines across Europe. The shortage is believed to be due to a combination of the dramatic and unforeseen rise in pet ownership and the knock-on effect of lockdown. In addition, Pfizer is the manufacturer of both the cat vaccine and one of the Covid-19 vaccines, putting the company under tremendous pressure.

The good news is that here at Orchard House we have a guaranteed supply and have not had any problems maintaining cat booster vaccinations and kitten vaccinations during recent months. So, don’t worry, Orchard House kittens and cats can stay fully protected against cat flu, parvovirus and leukaemia.

We will update you if the situation changes but for the meantime it is “paw-sitive” news for Orchard’s feline friends!
