A brand new cattery building was built in 1998 as an annex to the main practice building. It incorporates many features to make your pets stay as comfortable as possible. There is under floor heating to provide the optimum temperature for your pet’s contentment. Many cats prefer to stretch out on the warm floor in preference to their own beds brought in from their home. Each unit has a small window with a ledge upon which many cats sit contently watching the outside world.
The cattery is staffed by the nursing team. The junior nurses do most of the caring calling in a qualified nurse or a veterinary surgeon when necessary. All the cats being admitted to the cattery are given a health check by a qualified nurse within 48 hours of admission. A detailed record of this and the daily record will be handed over when your pet is going home. Potential clients of the cattery may inspect the accommodation but for the security of the other guests will always be accompanied. As a member of staff is not always available to show you round we ask that appointments are made to view the cattery.
Special diets can be provided, and cats on long-term medication are also welcome. Some depending on their medical condition may need to stay in the hospital ward of the practice.
