We will ask you to complete our a questionnaire on the previous health and history of your cat, including information such as favourite foods. This questionnaire is emailed prior to your appointment or you can complete it on the day.
Feline internal medicine consultations take place in our feline consultation room which is a dedicated cat consultation room with a cat-friendly environment. Soon we will be moving to our new premises in a cat-only hospital.
Cats can explore the room safely and we will have a litter box present for them if required.
Our feline clinicians will ask you more questions about your cat's condition while you cat explores and gets used to the new environment.
A physical examination of your cat is performed on the table, floor or the clinican's lap depending on what your cat prefers! If your cat is older a blood pressure measurement maybe taken during the consultation. We may ask you to help hold your cat during this procedure as this will help reduce your cat's anxiety.
Once the clinician has completed taking their history and performing the physical examination, they will discuss the possible causes of your cat's condition and investigations required.
Depending on the severity and emergency nature of the condition, investigations may be performed that day or the following day.
Cost estimates will be provided and your cat will be admitted to the hospital or discharged back to your care.
If your cat is admitted, we will contact you via SMS to let you know when a procedure is scheduled and your clinician will contact you once the procedure is completed.
Please note that sometimes these phone calls will be later in the evening but we will always discuss the outcome of the investigations with you in full each day.
