CVS continued support of the Assured Breeder Scheme

02 March 2016    10:00

CVS has long supported the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme with 20% discount on health screening schemes. With the impending compulsory microchip legislation, we have joined with CVS to offer additional benefits exclusive to Assured Breeders:

  • Microchipping for £9.99
  • Vaccinations £15 per vaccine
  • Continue with the 20% off breed health tests

Being the largest Veterinary Group in the UK with 242 surgeries, CVS vets are delighted to support the excellent work of the Assured Breeders. We are acutely aware how the breeders within the scheme wish to promote good breeding practice, and as a breeder, you wish to encourage the breeding of healthy, well-adjusted puppies and ensure that you and your new owners are compliant with new microchipping legislation.  Our new offer also includes discounted vaccinations so that your trip to the vets at 8 weeks provides you and your puppy with the care and healthcare protection that it needs to its future health. In addition, CVS continue to support Assured Breeder owned dogs with a 20% discount of all breed scheme related testing*. To benefit from these savings you will need to show valid membership of the ABS at any CVS practice (ABS active membership certificate). You will find details of your local CVS practice by visiting

Whilst all our groups are independently managed and retain the same staff, we pride ourselves in ensuring all our practice meet exceptional standards through the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care for Small Animal practices. The standards reflect the requirements of a primary care practice, which also aims to facilitate the achievement of high standards of clinical care.

Barry Brackner, spokesperson for CVS said 'We are delighted to be able to offer our support in way of discounts to committed breeders who have worked hard to improve their breed and meet the high standards of the Assured Breeders'.

*Terms and conditions apply and are based on the individual testing schemes available at each practice.
