Cats

West Coast Vets offer a wide range of services to meet the health needs of your cat. From performing emergency procedures to routine de-sexing we will offer your cat a high standard of love and care.

What we do:

  • Preventative health care for your cat. We have routine vaccinations for disease prevention and programs for flea and worm control.

  • Micro chipping service to help recover your cat if its becomes lost.

  • Cat Nutrition. We have a wide range of food to keep them full and healthy, and for specialised diets. Talk to the team about getting the right option for your cat.

  • Our modern facilities boast comprehensive diagnostic equipment such as machines for blood analysis, x-ray equipment with quick imaging, and portable ultrasound machines  which are useful for pregnancy diagnosis as well as abdominal scans of your cat.

  • We have in house tests for FIV aids and Feline Leukaemia virus to enable us to find out quickly whether or not your cat has been exposed to these diseases. We are seeing a lot of the aids virus in the feline population and your cat can be protected from it by receiving a course of 3 vaccinations which we offer. If your cat is over 6 months of age we would perform the in house test first before the vaccine is administered

  • Our small animal surgical suite is equipped with the latest, safer anaesthetic machines using isoflurane, pulse oximeters and ap-alerts to assist us with monitoring your pet while under anaesthesia. Our experienced veterinary nurses are well trained in anaesthetic protocols and monitoring.

  • Your cats dental health is also very important, plaque and tartar build up can lead to gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), potentially causing periodontal disease (bacterial infection). Periodontal disease left untreated can cause bad breath, teeth loss, inability to eat and damage to internal organs. We are able to routinely check your cat’s mouth and keep it clean and healthy using modern dental equipment to do so including an ultrasonic scaler and polisher.

  • If your cat has to stay overnight or board with us for a while they can keep warm and snug in the cosy cattery.

  • Cat treats/toys retail….

  • We have a team of vets and nurses waiting to keep your cat happy and healthy.
