Cat Health

Our aim is to care for your feline friends right from the start. From your pets first health check through to desexing and geriatric care, we will be here.

Depending on your circumstances our veterinarians will tailor a vaccination program to help keep your cat as safe as possible.

We also understand vet visits may not always be easy that’s why we aim to make each visit as ‘stress free’ as possible for your companion. We have a dedicated Cat consult room and segregated waiting areas in our Cooma Clinic to help create a safe space. We also use products such as Feliway – this help reduce stress in your furry friend during their visits and stays.

Our Standards of Care

Routine Health Checks

Kittens should receive a number of veterinary health checks in their first 15 months of life.
Adult cats should receive a full health check by a veterinarian at least once a year. Because cats age so much faster than humans, a lot can go wrong in that relatively short period.

Senior cats should receive a full health check once every 6 months.

Vaccination
F3 – Cat Flu Vaccine
  • Kittens should receive a course of 2 vaccines, 4-6 weeks apart. 
  • A booster should be given 1 year after the initial kitten course.
  • Cats should receive an F3 vaccine once a year after that.
FIV Vaccination 
  • Recommended for cats who have outdoor access. 
  • NOT recommended for indoor only cats unless in contact with a known carrier.

Worming

Kittens should be wormed regularly, reach out to find a detailed schedule.
Adult cats should be given an All-Wormer 

  • Once every 3 months for all cats that spend time outdoors. 
  • Once every 12 months for cats that live entirely indoors 

Microchipping

We recommend all dogs are implanted with microchips. In keeping with state legislation but, as importantly, to ensure the best chance of recovery of your beloved cat if he or she were ever lost.

Desexing

We recommend all cats are neutered or spayed at around 6 months of age, unless owners intend to breed with them. This recommendation is positive both for the health of the individual animal, as well as for our community in which unwanted and uncared for cats can be a safety and animal welfare issue. 

Fleas and Ticks

For cats that spend their entire time in this region, there is generally no reason to routinely use preventative measures against fleas or ticks.

Cats that travel from the region to flea or paralysis tick endemic areas should receive a treatment for prevention before they travel.

Feeding and Dental Care

Cats should be offered raw meaty bones that are size appropriate 1-2 times per week to prevent dental disease.
Our veterinarians recommend a complete diet that is based on higher protein levels than most “cat food”.  Raw meat with the addition of Vet’s All Natural Complete Mix , or a home made recipe are far more suitable diets for most cats
