Cat of the Year 2021

For December 2021 the Vet2Cat team have decided to finish the year with “Cat of the Year” instead of cat of the month.

We have so many wonderful clients that it was such a difficult decision but, Cat of the year 2021 is….

BOB

This beautiful chap of nearly 19 years young is one of the Vet2Cat team’s favourites.

Like most older puss cats, Bob has his fair share of health issues that are under management including arthritis, hypertension (high blood pressure), and hyperthyroidism (over active thyroid).

Before we knew Bob, his hooman had terrible trouble giving Bob any medications and he did not like to travel to the vets and made his feelings known!

After a few visits from the Vet2Cat team, Bob would greet us on arrival but also made sure we left!

We introduced Bob and his hooman to Easypill Putty, a mouldable palatable treat to conceal tablets. This was a game changer for them both. Bob has to have multiple medications to manage his current conditions which would never have been achievable before Easypill.

Bob also has a monthly injection called Solensia to help with his arthritic pain. It doesn’t have the same side effects as the commonly used non-steroidal treatments (please ask us for more information). It has had a huge impact on Bob’s lifestyle with his hooman reporting the shock of watching this senior citizen doing the zoomies again!

Bob has his very own personal veterinary team tending to his health needs in his own pad, and medications that help, as well as taste good.

Bob you are a legend and it is a pleasure to be your on-hand physicians!

Cat of the month November 2021

Every month we choose three cats that we feel deserve special acknowledgment. We have a winner and two runner ups.

The winner of the Vet2Cat cat of the month goes to…..

Beautiful BRUCE

Mr Fluff-ball, Bruce joined the vet2cat family recently. Like so many it was simply the trauma of being taken to the vet that prompted Bruce’s hoomans to come to us. He shares his hoomans with two other furry felines, but Bruce still rules the roost!

This gorgeous senior chap of 17 years was diagnosed with severe arthritis and high blood pressure. With careful monitoring and the most up-to-date medications, including the innovative monthly injection Solensia for arthritis, Bruce is living his life to the fullest once again!

Our first runner up this month is …

The lovely TILLY

As with many of our patients, taking Tilly to a veterinary practice was just far too stressful for both Tilly and her hoomans.

We first saw Tilly as her owner was concerned that she was limping. As it turns out, even at the age of 10 years, she was suffering from severe arthritic changes in multiple limbs, and was really struggling to get around.

This lovely laid-back lady is a pleasure to be around, living life like a kitten again with pain medications on board.

 

 

Our second runner up this month is….

The spirited BOW

It is fair to say that not all Vet2Cat patients are overwhelmed with joy to see us in their own home! Bow was no exception. Bow was not in the least but enamoured with us invading her territory, to the point she made that very clear-  our ‘Kevlar’ CatWrap blanket was always within grabbing distance!

The reason she has been chosen for this month is the outstanding progress she has made with trusting us. With worried or anxious cats this can take years of consistent training. However, with kind,gentle handling, some pharmaceutical assistance from mild pre-visit sedatives, and a lot of patience, Bow no longer gives us quite such a hard time for her check-ups!
