Brushing your cat’s teeth – will it help?

As a feline vet, but also a cat owner, I dread asking my lovely clients if they brush their cat’s teeth! The question is met with incredulous eyebrow raises, mumbling into the backs of their hands or even laughter. Of course most of us don’t regularly brush our cat’s teeth – we like our fingers…

Aaliyah is cute
Is my cat in pain?

This is my cat Aaliyah, isn’t she cute? Aaliyah eats all her food, goes out into the garden, interacts with my family and chats like there is no tomorrow, she generally seems happy.  Aaliyah has arthritis, and is in a lot of pain when not on her medications. Before we started her medicine, she wasn’t…

Thor has acupuncture

Having seen the wonderful benefits of acupuncture in many of my furry patients, including my beloved cat Oscar, I was always very keen to train in this skill myself. So when Amy and Robert shared my interest and agreed for me to go on an acupuncture course I was very excited!! In November 2018 I…

Nikki Taking Daisy's X-Rays

People always seem surprised when I tell them that I enjoy feline dentistry… after all it can be a long and seemingly messy job!

Meet the Cat Doctors

Those of you who have been with us for some time may have noticed a few changes lately. More than a few in fact, as when Shreen and I started doing home visits 5 years ago, we could have hardly imagined where we would be today! We’ve both studied hard and completed advanced certificates in…

Aaliyah

That’s the line my husband used when I suddenly realised how fat my cat Aaliyah had actually got. It’s easy not to see the weight piling on when you see your pet every day, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening. As a veterinary nurse regularly meeting with clients and addressing their cat’s weight issues,…

15 Seconds of Fame

What would you do for your 15 seconds of fame? A few weeks ago we made a short video about our business and entered it into a competition run by iZettle, who make our credit card reader. It was surprisingly difficult to show the world what makes us special in just 15 seconds but on…

Paloma

Paloma was a happy, healthy, bouncy 4 month-old kitten living under the care of a cat charity in Spain, waiting to find a new home. With little chance of a local adoption, the decision was made to send her to live with a family in England who had kindly agreed to take her on. She…
