In the comfort of your own home

Vet2Cat Can…

Much of what a regular traditional veterinary practice would do, can be done at home.
For example:

What we can do:

  • Clinical examination and life-stage health audit
  • Weight and body condition score assessment
  • Behavioural assessment
  • Environmental assessment
  • Vaccination
  • Blood sampling
  • Urine sampling if the bladder is big enough (by cystocentesis- passing a needle through the body wall into the bladder to draw off a sterile urine sample)
  • Blood pressure measurement
  • Claw clipping
  • Administration of flea and worming products
  • Ophthalmoscopy (Eye examination)
  • Otoscopy (Ear examination)
  • Microchipping
  • Basic echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart)*
  • Abdominal ultrasonography*
  • Pregnancy confirmation*
  • Dematting
  • Minor skin-level surgical procedures performed under injectable anaesthesia and oxygen; eg stitch-up of minor wounds, lance and flush abscess, skin biopsies, very small skin lump removals.

*Dependent on machine availability

What we cannot do at your home:

There is a limit to what we can safely do in your house. If your cat requires any of the following procedures, we can arrange to collect and transport your cat to one of our associated practices.
When it’s time to go home, we will bring him or her back to you.

  • X-rays
  • Surgical procedures other than the minor procedures listed above
  • Hospitalisation for fluid therapy and/or supportive care
  • Dentistry

For certain procedures, Vet2Cat may recommend a different veterinary surgeon, either another general practitioner vet or a specialist. You will be guided through this process by the staff of Vet2Cat.

Sedation

For some of the listed procedures in some cats, sedation may be required. This is always in your cat’s best interests – if he or she is getting too upset by what we do, it can be better to sedate them than  manually restrain them. We will always select the safest form of sedation for your cat and will take into account any conditions they may have, such as kidney or heart disease. Oxygen can be provided, and your cat will be closely monitored throughout the procedure by our veterinary nurse.
