Cat Professional achieved a UK first during June 2009 with the launch of specialist geriatric cat clinics. The clinics, which are held at the Royal Dick Small Animal Hospital in Edinburgh, aim to provide senior cats and their owners with a full report following a detailed ‘MOT’. Dr Sarah Caney is keen that cat owners maintain the relationship with their existing vet, therefore appointments are by referral only and a copy of each report will also be sent to the referring vet to ensure continuity of treatment.
Cats who attend the clinics will be assessed with the following tests:
Each appointment will last between 30 and 45 minutes and is charged at £72. These appointments are relevant for any cats aged 10 or over. Most health problems experienced by senior cats can be promptly identified and effectively treated, thus giving cat-owners longer with their much-loved pet as well as an enhanced quality of life for the cat in question.
Common problems experienced by older cats include kidney disease, thyroid
problems, arthritis, dental disease and high blood pressure. Statistics
show that over one third of cats over the age of 15 have kidney disease,
however recent treatment advances mean that many cats are able to live for
YEARS following diagnosis and successful treatment
Clinic appointments are by referral only, however owners who are interested can download a referral form here which they can take to their vet for completion. For further information on the clinics please email email@example.com or phone 0131 440 9029.
To reserve an appointment (at a cost of £72.00), please phone or email us. We will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time and date.)
* Additional tests such as blood and detailed urine tests will carry additional charges. Additional tests will only be carried out when necessary and with full consent from the owner after discussion.

Thank you so much for the consultation today. I do feel more positive that there is much more that can be done for Mac to help with his CKD.
Thank you so much for our discussion, it helped me enormously (you cannot imagine how desperate I was!) and gave me some hope. I am so grateful to you.
