Veterinaries in CH

Hello there,

I could not find good threads out there for this so I open a new one.

Cats

How many vaccinations do they need? First at 9 weeks, and then....
I want to know from your experiences because two different vets I contacted told me different vaccinations necessary. Could you tell me what is mandatory and when from your own experience?

In addition; the cost. How much are they (your experience as well)? I want to know if these vets are expensive or not. I read is not a legal rule and they are free to charge what they want.

Looking forward for your answers.

Seyon

OK my experience in Geneva.

Im not sure about the first vaccines but after the first round they need in once per year. As for charge... i pay 250ish but thats after a discount and its for three cats. So i would say around 100 each

You mean 100 CHF each cat for the first round of vaccines when they are small. Then, the yearly one how much are they?

No i mean 100 per cat yearly. Its because i had them vaccinated a couple of months ago thats why i remember. Cant remember what it cost for the first vaccine but i guess it maybe a bit more since they give you a vaccination book and put it in their systems. Not sure though

Re: Veterinaries in CH

For the first visit at around 3 months we paid around 100chf. This included the blood test to make sure he didn't have the feline leukaemia, a full check up and the vaccines (and a worming tablet I think). The second vaccine is a month later and cost 65chf.

They then need the vaccines annually after that which come in at about 60-70chf assuming they don't need anything else doing.

As our cats are outdoor cats we also have the cost of flea and tick treatment every month. I order them online from the UK as it is much cheaper but I can't remember the actual price offhand.

Is it an equivalent of Frontline that you order? I'd be interested to know where you order it, as it is terribly expensive here.

As for the OP, normally you pay a standard fee for seeing the vet (mine is 55.-, a bit more for an emergency). A vaccine then costs about 60-70 .-

For dogs, you have to give two doses when they are babies to build up their immunity, then a yearly shot is enough.

If your cat will to outdoor or if you consider taking him abroad, don't forget the rabies shot by the way.

Yes it is Frontline. I paid £21.50 for six and it is 41chf for 3 here. Sending you details in a PM somewhere else.

Re: Veterinaries in CH

Ok, yesterday we went to the vet for the first time.
As indoor cats there is only one necessary vaccination. 45.-CHF each cat.
I think is not that bad. In a month again, and then ones a year.
