It goes without saying that you know your cat better than anyone else, but of course you cannot spot everything. There are some common, but serious, diseases that have subtle symptoms in their early stages, and it can take an expert eye to spot those signs.
Health and wellness checks are a key part of the animal care we provide. We believe that health and wellness starts with good nutrition and regular health checks from an early age. We share your desire to make sure your pet is healthy, and want to help you keep them that way!
We offer a range of clinics to keep your cherished pet happy and healthy from kitten to cat!
Kitten Health Checks
We want your newest family member to get off to the best possible start, so we offer all kittens a free weight check and worming review. Please note this is for healthy kittens as a routine check.
We invite kittens for a free check up with one of our nurse and weigh in every four weeks to keep an eye on their growth, spot any issues, administer the correct dose of flea and worming treatment, address any concerns or questions you may have and most importantly teach them that a visit to the vets is a wonderful experience full of cuddles and treats!
Our Little VIP Healthcare Plan
The Little VIP Plan will help you spread the cost of caring for your furry friend from the very first day you bring them home.
The Plan includes all preventative healthcare such as flea and worming treatments, a course of vaccinations, 30% off our recommended food and a free treat! Getting a new bundle of fun is so exciting and just as you want to do what’s best for your little one, so do we!
A healthy lifestyle is just as important to our pets as it is to us humans. Keeping your pet active, providing good nutrition and reducing treats will keep them at a healthy weight and could help lower the risk of things like diabetes, joint damage and heart disease. Did you know diabetes affects 1 in 200 cats?
Could there be a problem?
If you answer yes to any of the questions below you may want to talk to us about weight management:
- Do you have difficulty feeling your pet’s ribs?
- Is there little or no ‘waist’?
- Does your pet seem to tire easily with activity?
- Does your pet keep eating so long as there is food in the bowl?
We can offer advice on exercise, nutrition and weight management. If you suspect your cat may be overweight, please give us a call and book a health check with one of our experienced vets. Our vet will perform a comprehensive nose to tail and weight check, and will discuss a diet and exercise plan tailored for your cats lifestyle and nutritional needs. We will be with you offering support and advice every step of the way!
We love taking care of our older cat patients as they are often so full of character. Thanks to advances in medicine we can do so much more for our older friends to help keep them healthy and comfortable throughout their retirement!
When do cats start ageing?
Cats age a lot quicker than we do. If your cat is over the age of 8 you may be surprised to know that they are regarded as senior. As they age it becomes even more important for you to keep an eye on your older friend and watch out for any changes that may indicate a developing health problem.
Symptom of old age or something more serious?
If you have noticed your cat slowing down, losing weight or acting strangely, it may just be a symptom of getting older but any changes to your cat’s behaviour should be investigated by a vet. All of our vets are experienced in managing the complex and multiple conditions that often accompany advancing years. Early detection of illness and disease is really important, and we have the equipment necessary to help diagnose and treat your cat as quickly as possible.
