normally about 25 a set, you need 2 in first year then one a year after or 2 if you are even a few days late.

vets for pets do a good offer you pay the original 50 then 99 and they vaccinate for life with no other costs, unless you are late then you start over

Abbey charge 24.95 for the first set (includes a health check, free sample of Advocate and 4 weeks insurance), then from 17.95 for a booster.

If you are reasonably close to Rotherham and go to Vets4Pets your first vaccination will be 15. You then pay 49 for lifetime cover (usually 99 but it is a half price offer at the moment). Your second injection (2 weeks after the first) will be included in the offer. The total cost will therefore be 15+49 - 64.
Most vets would charge circa 50 for the first two so it is a bargain. However, it is not transferable to another owner if you do not keep your dog.

Not really lifetime cover for the dog then.

It is lifetime cover for those of us who acquire dogs with the intention of keeping and looking after them properly for the duration of their lives. Not (of course) for those who don't or perhaps can't.
It is entirely understandable that it is not transferable. People could bring in any dog saying it was the one on the certificate. In any event, the OP's question was answered and your comment is hopefully irrelevant to them.

So the answer is to issue a certificate of proof for that dog against a microchip. It has nothing to do with who owns it and for how long, it's either for the life of the dog or it isn't and it isn't. It's for how long it's owned by the first person that brings it in, after that too bad.

We use Abbey at Deepcar too, they are great plus Abbey have a proper 24 hour emergency centre which is definitely a feature you should look out for with whatever vet you choose - if you are unlucky enough to have an emergency the vet you see will have access to all your pets records, which is one reason why I prefer to go to the same vet for everything including vaccs, check ups etc.

I've just had my puppy done at vets4pets. She had both jabs - first at 8 weeks, 2nd at 10 weeks. I paid 99 and that's vaccinations for life. My other 3 dogs are also on that programme
