    we got cassie at 9 months old so she only needs her boosters wich are £40 each roughly...

    but because later this year we're getting a GSD i need to start saving (i want the dog, mum said she'll pay 2/3 for the dog itself but i have to pay for injections and chip!!)

    I need to know how much im saving plz :D

    u dont have to get the chip done at ur vets.
    Sometimes if u shop around other non veterinary people (groomers, suitably qualified other) may do it at a cheaper price.
    We charge 23.50 (NW) but u can get it done for as low as 11 up here. Sometimes local dogshows or charities will have a amnesty and offer the low price as a speacial for a limited time so worth keeping an eye in local press for details.
    Vaccines often dont vary too much from area to area as most vets try to keep it similer to local competitors.

    At our vets they charge either £43 or £46 for both jabs - can't quite remember but it's one of these. Our puppy had had it's first one so it was £32 for just the second one which isn't much cheaper.:rolleyes: Microchipping is £24 I think but we got it for £11.99 because we had our other dog vaccinated at the same time. She was 12 weeks when she was microchipped.:)

    dunno about flea,ticck and worming stuff - my vet said they use spot on but never told me the price cos he didnt need a 'top-up' just yet - will ask him when Perry goes for his 2nd and last jab :)

    At my vets, for a starter course of vaccinations it's £41
    And the boosters are about £20 something.
    Micro chipping at my vets is £15.50

    Oh and we also get free worming and flea treatment with a starter course of vaccinations.

    Flea treatment at my vets, is

    FRONTLINE SPOT-ON SMALL DOG PACK OF 3 £16.80
    FRONTLINE SPOT-ON MEDIUM DOG PACK OF 3 £18.63
    FRONTLINE SPOT-ON LARGE DOG PACK OF 3 £20.33

    Worming tablets are about £4 each time, so about £18 a year ish.

    It could be an idea to ask the previous owners if she was insurred - if she is on a life policy they may be able to transfer this to you...... youll save a lot in the long run as it wont increae if you have to claim ;)
    But, save save save lol

    When i first got my dogs chipped it was £48. Havent a clue what they charge now. Dont go for the biotherm chips, they constantly fail, and are inaccurate.

    Booster is £35.

    Not sure about the initial course.
