RSPCA Victoria is excited to offer more low-cost pet vaccination days to local pet owners in Melton on February 14.

The clinic is run by an RSPCA Victoria vet, and is aimed at making veterinary care more accessible for people and their pets.

It will take place at the 3rd Melton Scout Group at the corner of Smith and Henry Streets, Melton.

For $59.00, a dog or cat will receive their preventative vaccines and be checked by an RSPCA veterinarian to ensure they are fit for their vaccinations.

Pet owners can also receive professional advice on how to keep them healthy now and into the future.

RSPCA Victoria Head of Prevention Rebecca Cook said RSPCA is looking forward to visiting the Melton community.

“By the end of January, we will have held 46 low-cost vaccination events across Melbourne and saved each pet owner at least $50 on average per pet,” she said.

“We want to help people care for their pets by increasing their access to veterinary and preventative care, which supports lifelong bonds among families with their cats and dogs.”

Appointments at each clinic must be booked online in advance with limited places available. Those with more than one pet must book a separate appointment for each animal.

RSPCA said due to nation-wide shortages of the F3 vaccine, the team are currently unable to vaccinate cats, however, can still do basic health checks.
