Nurse Consultations

Did you know that our Registered Nurses provide their own consultations? At The London Cat Clinic our friendly nurses can help you in many ways, from providing advice to assisting in follow-on treatment and procedures relating to a condition diagnosed by your Veterinarian.

Here is a list of our most popular consultations:

Kitten's First Examination

If you are planning on getting a kitten or have recently brought one into your home, visiting the clinic for the first time can be a little daunting. Our kitten checks have been designed to give you the chance to come and speak with us about all of the important things that happen during their first year and to give you and your kitten a stress-free trip to the vet. We will give your kitten a nose-to-tail exam and discuss important topics such as vaccinations, diet, parasite control, neutering and insurance to name a few. There can be a lot of questions in your mind during this time and our nurses have a lot of advice they would love to share with you. For extra tips before visiting the nurses, we have a page on our website dedicated to new arrivals here. This is a complimentary visit for kittens under 6 months and aimed at helping you get started on the right path for your kitten.

Dental Health

If you have been noticing a bit of smelly breath when your cat comes to greet you or they seem to be less interested in their food, it is probably time for them to have their teeth looked at. Dental disease affects most cats at some point in their life and is quite commonly found in younger cats. A dental check involves a methodical examination of the mouth and oral cavity in a calm and cat-friendly way. This complimentary check gives us the opportunity to see what kinds of dental disease are likely to be present and to explain what it is that happens during our Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment. Keep in mind that not all cats develop smelly breath and a dental check is a really great way to monitor the progress of your cat’s dental health.

We value our nurses and their knowledge and feel they have an important role to play in your cat’s life. We are pleased to be able to offer the following consultations for you:

Weight Management and Nutritional Assessment Clinics

We all have those days where we feel our waistline is a little fuller than we would like and our cats are much the same (even if they are still yelling at you for more food!). We have found that weight is something that a lot of owners worry about – whether it is that their cat is too thin or a little too plump. Meeting with our nurses to check on your cat’s weight is one of the best ways to find out if there is an issue and whether or not the routine you have at home is ideal for your cat’s needs. We can find out so much information through a few simple questions and guide you through making some minor changes that can make a major difference. Obesity in cats is a growing issue and can lead to further illnesses such as diabetes and arthritis. It can also affect your cat’s demeanour and leave them feeling depressed, much in the same way as a human. During a weight clinic, we can discuss so much more than just a number on a scale. Each and every cat is unique and so are their figures.

In addition to the above our nurses routinely perform post-operative checks, second vaccinations and continuing courses of injections.

Just need a little advice, but not sure you need to see the vet? A nurse consultation is a great opportunity to ask those questions that have been bothering you, in a private and comfortable space. Book you nurse consultation here
