At your initial appointment you will be greeted by one of our nurses who have a specialist interest in cats and have been trained in cat friendly handling. They will spend around 40 minutes with you to discuss in depth your cats current lifestyles and behaviours. Whilst you and your veterinary nurse are discussing your feline friend your cat will have the opportunity to explore our newly designed cat friendly consult rooms at their leisure. They can take their time to explore our new cat perches, hides and toys. Once your cat has become acclimatised to the practice our nurse will take your cats blood pressure, collect a blood and urine sample and weigh your cat.
The samples collected will enable us to perform a screening test on the following things;
- Blood pressure
- Kidney function
- Blood and urine glucose
- Urinary tract infections
- Inflammatory levels
The tests will be performed whilst you wait. You will then have a consultation with one of our cat vets who will perform a full examination on your cat and analyse the test results along with the information gathered from your consultation with your nurse. Then together with your vet we will then formulate a further plan regarding the care of your feline friend. This may involve some life style adaptations, medications or a plan for further monitoring in the future.
At your initial appointment you will also receive our exclusive ‘Magnificent Moggies Monitoring Booklet’. This will enable you to keep tract of your cat’s results, record any medication changes, record any changes in your cat’s health or behaviour and record the plans and date of your next appointment.
