Laura will be offering a referral service for feline patients and all of our vets offer a first opinion service, many of our staff hold advanced qualifications in their fields This means that we can offer a comprehensive service for all breeds of cats, from routine care to nutritional advice, nurse clinics, advanced diagnostics and everything in between.
We try to vaccinate cats in line with their lifestyles. The main vaccinations required for indoor cats are against cat flu (Feline Calicivirus and Feline Herpes Virus) and Infectious Enteritis. For those cats who go outside, particularly in areas where there are lots of other cats, the Feline Leukaemia Virus vaccine can be given. FeLV is spread by close contact with other cats - for example, grooming, mating etc.
If your cat stays indoors all the time, his/her risk of catching FeLV is very low so Flu/enteritis are all that are required. We take into account the duration of immunity for each vaccine component so we can avoid giving them more than is necessary (in line with manufacturer's data sheet).
