“Incredible service at such a difficult time”

I cannot recommend The Cat Doctor highly enough following my experience two days ago. Unfortunately, my beloved cat Tigger suffered from a rapid decline in health over the course a few days, and I called Amy on Tuesday morning. As Tigger was very afraid of cars and would not have fared well in a vets' surgery, I was very pleased to find out that Amy's mobile vet service was local to me. Even at such short notice, she made an appointment to come and visit us at home that same morning, along with Shreen and Mary.

Their treatment of Tigger was wonderful, and they were quick to diagnose him. They were so gentle and caring with him, and also with his brother Eeyore. Unfortunately, Tigger had to be put to sleep, but Amy and her team were so very supportive and caring and allowed us to make the decision without pushing us at all and giving us plenty of time to think about it. They were so compassionate yet so professional, and carried out the procedure with the utmost care. It was fitting to end Tigger's long and happy life in the comfort of his home, laying on his favourite rug.

They were also very compassionate and kind with us, noting how deeply upset we were in the situation, comforting us with the most lovely words and assuring us that he was at peace. Their passion for the wellbeing of cats is clear, and reflected solidly in their work. Amy and her team were the perfect fit for Tigger, recognising just how special he was to us and treating him as such. We were also sent a beautiful card today in remembrance of our beloved cat, which made us very emotional and made it even clearer just how much Amy, Shreen and Mary care about their patients. We'll be sowing the forget-me-nots over Tigger's grave in his memory.

In addition to all of this, after the visit, Amy was very helpful in advising how to help Eeyore cope with the loss of his brother from whom he had never been apart since birth. All of this adds up to the most excellent experience from a wonderful group of vets who truly do care.

I cannot thank you enough for everything that you've done.

“Thank you for your help at a difficult time”

Amy and Shreen came out late in the evening and at short notice to see our elderly but much loved cat Dipsy. She had been declining for a while and we didn't want to put her through the ordeal of a visit to the vet. Thankfully we found the Cat Doctor and although sadly Dipsy's time came to an end, it made a world of difference being able to say goodbye to her in the familiar surroundings of her own home. Amy and Shreen were superb with Dipsy from the first moment through to the end. They were very compassionate and supportive but professional and honest and helped us to reach a decision about Dipsy's best interests without trying to steer us in any particular direction. They clearly care deeply about cats and about the work that they do.

“Best Service ever”

What a magnificent service! Both Amy and Shreen show true empathy. It's wonderful to have the assurance that your beloved pet will be attended by the same vet who really gets to know and understand them. Sadly, I only found this incredible service at the very end of my precious Bill's life at the grand old age of 19 years and 5 months but the kindness and understanding shown by Amy helped me through that very difficult time. It is most definitely the service I will use in the future. I cannot recommend The Cat Doctor highly enough.
Helen, in memory of Bill

“Excellent service”

Very happy to have found The Cat Doctor for our highly nervous, elderly cat, Marge. Taking her to a busy surgery would have been awful for her and for us! Amy and Shreen are a terrific team.

“A good start”

The Cat Doctor was everything we wanted for our new rescue kittens. They were prompt and professional, kind and reassuring, expert and informative, and well worth the fee. We are very grateful to them.

“GOLD STAR SERVICE”

Amy and Shreen came highly recommended last year and have just visited Happy for his second annual health check. I was told by his previous owner that he really hates travelling in the car so jumped at the chance to have these lovely ladies come to our home to see him. Happy doesn't panic or get stressed as both Amy and Shreen are fabulous with him. They are kind, gentle and patient and nothing is too much trouble.

It is no more expensive having a home visit than it would be taking Happy to a vet and the really big advantage is there is no stress involved for anyone, but especially not for Happy!

They offer good advice and you don't feel patronised (which has been the case with other small animal vets); they just want to help you provide the best care for your moggie.

Thank you Amy and Shreen, Ican't recommend you highly enough!

“Very happy kitties”

I have two cats, one of whom is extremely nervous and runs away terrified when someone new comes in, taking her to the vet was hopeless. Amy and helper came to see them and there were no issues whatsoever. We got both of them weighed, vaccinated and checked over all before either knew anything was going on. I will definitely be using the Cat Doctor from now on. Thankyou Amy and team,

“Fantastic service, very highly recommended!”

My wife and I recently purchased two 12 week old kittens - Diego & Sanchez. They had not been vaccinated and we also wanted to get a complete health check for them, however I know from the past how stressful a visit to the local vet can be, especially for such youngsters!

Naturally, I took to Google and found that there were a number of mobile vets in the area that offered the services we require. The Cat Doctor however, stood out due to the glowing reviews, information provided on their website and also the fact they solely specialised in cats. I therefore contacted them and spoke to Amy, who immediately provided me with great information and advice. To my surprise, I was able to book an evening appointment at short notice and without any extra cost, which was perfect for us as we both work during the day.

On the day of the appointment, Amy phoned and let me know when she and her assistant Shreen would be with us. When the doorbell rang, we welcomed them into our house and were immediately pleased that we chose them. Amy and Shreen put both Diego and Sanchez at ease straight away, both armed with blankets, toys and treats for the pair. We had only had the kittens for a week and although they had some interaction with others, I was conscious that they might be shy and make the health check and injections difficult for Amy and Shreen to carry out. All my doubts were put at ease though, Amy and Shreen used their magic touch and the kittens made no trouble or fuss when they were checked over gently and had their injections. Much like everything else in their lives, I am sure they simply saw it as a fun game to play!

Although I expected a quick visit, simply to carry out the checks, the pair stayed to give us really useful advice, especially concerning nutrition. As we were both new to cat ownership, the advice was really informative and greatly appreciated. Payment for the appointment was simple and excellent value. We also booked for the vaccination follow-up appointment and I am sure Diego and Sanchez, like us, cannot wait to see Amy and Shreen again!

I highly recommend both Amy and Shreen to anyone who loves their cats. They offer an outstanding service and we cannot thank them enough for all of their support and advice. Hopefully Diego and Sanchez will have many years to come and we are confident that their health will always be in safe hands with The Cat Doctor.

Thank you Amy and Shreen!
