Home visits

Tuesday, August 13, 2019
                             A Canberra Cat Vet vet and nurse will visit your home to examine, vaccinate or blood test your cats. Mums with young babies, people without transport, anxious cats, senior people, senior cats, and multi cat households love our house call service.

Dr Georgia finds it easier to solve cat behaviour problems like urinating around the house and intercat aggression when she sees the cat's environment.

If you think that this service might suit you and your feline companions please phone and discuss it with our receptionist on 6251 1444.

Old cats need extra care

Friday, May 05, 2017

Our cats don't give us much warning when they are not healthy. They hide arthritis until they can barely move. Kidney, gut and liver disease creep up on them. Hypertension is a silent killer, just as in humans.

As our cats age they need more frequent assessments and a deeper probe into their health. We have a package for cats older than 10 years which picks up the major and most common disease threats.

Canberra Cat Vet is offering NEW CLIENTS with a cat 10 years or older, and clients with cats who have just reached 10 years of age $15 OFF your next bag of Hills dry cat food! This offer is available until the end of June 2017 when you book in a Senior Health Check for your senior feline companion.

A Senior Health Check for your cat may include, but is not limited to the following: full clinical examination, vaccination review, dental assessment, diet assessment, medication review, blood testing, urine examination, blood pressure and mobility assessments.

Your cats health and happiness depend on regular veterinary assessments. Call us on  6251 1444 or make an online appointment on the "Request an Appointment" button above.
