Cat at food bowl

Well, yes, and no. Cats are carnivores. They are built to eat meat, although most can tolerate other ingredients with varying degrees of success. We advocate feeding your cat foods that most closely resemble their natural diet, and to vary the types of foods they eat just like they would naturally do in the wild.…

The Cat Doctor People
Meet the Cat Nurses

Veterinary nurses are a special breed. Driven by a love of animals and a desire to care for them, they spend years training for their chosen profession, improving the comfort and welfare of every patient they meet. You may not always see them, but behind every good veterinary practice is a team of registered nurses…

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…

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’s Story

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…

Lulu
A Forever Home for Lulu

We recently had the great pleasure of meeting Lulu, a very sweet 12 year-old tortoiseshell girl. Life was good for Lulu until sadly her owner passed away and for the past several months, she had been living alone in an empty house. No prior arrangements had been made for her care so when her owner…

Kitten with paper

I’m a vet, so of course I’m going to say yes, right? Pet insurance allows me to perform more diagnostic tests and treatments for my patients which means not only happier, healthier pets but also a more profitable practice. So you would think that I would recommend it to all of my clients and in…

Older cat
Caring for an Older Cat

This week we travelled to Esher to visit Sammy, a lovely 18 year old cat. Sammy’s owner thought he was ‘slowing down’ in his old age and wanted us to make sure there were no underlying health problems. His owner had had him since he was a kitten and in her eyes he hadn’t aged…

Cat scratching

“That can’t possibly be flea dirt” I thought to myself as I walked past my cat Molly’s bed, “I’m the vet, my cat can’t have fleas!” A wave of embarrassment washed over me as I realised that yes, my own cat had fleas. I had forgotten to apply her monthly flea preventative for the past…
