“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,

Amy and Shreen are lovely people who provide a very professional and caring service in the home. This greatly reduced the stress to our cat when he was sick and vastly improved the quality of his life. I would highly recommend them. Joanna

“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!

Richard & Andreina, Diego & Sanchez xx

“A Miraculous inprovement”

Fluffy, my lovely old white and black cat seemed to be on her last legs. She had become skinny with matted fur and bald patches. She was obviously unhappy and was constantly biting at herself. I did not want to put her through the stress of taking her to the vet and so contacted the cat doctor. What a wise decision that proved to be. After an examination and blood test she was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and a course of treatment was worked out.
Now, after a few months fluffy is back to her old self. She has an unblemished coat, is far happier and is gaining weight.
The girls have a real touch with Fluffy. She is always happy to see them, fuelled in part by lots of treats. I am so grateful that I have my cat back and hopefully she can live out her remaining years a contented cat. All due to the cat docs.

“What a find!”

I am so grateful I saw the ad for The Cat Doctor. The relief I feel this evening after Amy and Shreen's first visit is immeasurable. My beloved cat is 16 years old with dementia. I was concerned for his quality of life. After a thorough examination in the comfort of his own home I feel so reassured. They actually sat on the floor with him! He was not at all stressed even when they shaved a part of him. Slight adjustment to his meds and a trim of his nails at same time. Brilliant. Friendly calm and professional - I know that Amy and Shreen are just a phone call away. Quality service.

“The Vet for real Cat Lovers”

A really superb service that wins over taking the cat(s) to the vet in so many ways.
Going to the vet involves: the normally docile cat opening veins on your arm as you get him in the carrier, the terrified yowling on journey, the likelihood of the scared cat having a pee or poo in the carrier, the waiting room with all the noise (and smells) of other stressed animals, the 5 other people ahead of you because the vet has been dealing with an emergency, the chase around the examination room, the feeling of guilt when (this time) the cat can't get into the carrier fast enough, the journey back home and the look of the utterly betrayed when you get there and let him out of the carrier.
A visit from Amy and Shreen: You call the Cat Doctor, they turn up, they instantly befriend your cat (Jealous? No no... of course not), they treat the (still docile) cat in the kindest, most professional way we have seen (OK, this part is a bit dubious from the cat's perspective - but nothing that more treats and snuggles can't put right) and then we have a nice chat about cat things.
No contest.

“Very pleased to have found The Cat Doctor ”

I contacted Amy at The Cat Doctor after an unsatisfactory visit to a local vet with my newly adopted cat Rupert. Amy popped round to fill in the paper work and explained how the practice works. The welcome pack she provided is excellent and she gave me advice on diet, flea & worm prevention and vaccinations.

The Cat Doctor website is clear & easy to navigate, laying out basic costs clearly. Blogs & articles on Facebook are interesting too.

I have every confidence in Amy and her team and know that leaving the vet bamboozled with a very stressed cat is now a thing of the past :)

“An excellent service which I am happy to recommend.”

My cat, Oscar, is elderly but in good health although he needed his jab and a nail trim. He hates the cat basket and the travel involved going to the vet so I was delighted to find the cat doctor service online. Amy and Shreen were kind, prompt and punctual, gave an excellent service, explained everything clearly and I will use them whenever I need care for my cat. I am very happy to recommend them.

“Excellent service”

Thankfully it was just a small issue with my Cat but the service was superb. After googling for a home visit vet, I came across 'the Cat Doctor' and Amy and Shreen arrived soon after. They were both courteous and friendly and gave a very professional service dealing with the issue very quickly. The fees were very reasonable and its very comforting to know they are available in the future, jim

“The best a cat can get! ”

Amy and Shreen provide the kind of veterinary care for my cats that I thought you could only dream of. Whether the problem is serious or not so serious the care is second to none, with the minimal amount of stress to both cat and owner. I would always have thought that the cost of high quality at home care was prohibitive but that is simply not the case and I'm hoping that the need to take a stressful visit to the vet with a yowling cat is a thing of the past. Already The Cat Doctor has seen us through some tough ties with very happy outcomes and I cannot recommend highly enough.

“End of life care”

My dear 19 year old cat took a sudden turn for the worse on a Saturday evening, and we needed a vet urgently. The on call service for our local vets was an unknown vet about 40 minutes drive away; in desperation we Googled 'Mobile vet Surrey' and found Amy, The Cat Doctor. She arrived within 25 minutes; she made my cat comfortable with sedation, talked things through carefully and gave us time alone; my cat died peacefully with me cuddling her. It wasn't just the ability to keep our cat at home that made this terrible time easier, it was Amy's excellent veterinary skills, good communication - and kindness.

“Best Vet for Cats in the Wimbledon ”

The great advantage of having Amy Berg is that when you need help for your cat you can talk immediately to a vet not a book an appointment through a receptionist. Having the vet come to the house is much safer for my & year old Siamese cat than going to my local vetinary practice though the vet is good but his surgery is usually occupied by other cats and dogs. My Siamese cat hates going there.
Amy and her assistant nurse are excellent professionals and my cat does not mind (much) being treated by them
I thoroughly recommend the Cat Doctor for sympathetic and efficient pet care at home where you need it.

I will never be able to go back to using a normal vet! The Cat Doctor is a convenient, flexible and professional service which has really changed the way I look after my cats. Amy has been incredibly kind and has gone out of her way a number of times to keep me informed and make sure my girls are getting the best care possible. Thank you Cat Doctor!

“Two happy cats and a happy owner”

What a great service! Not having to put the cats in a carrier meant no chasing around the kitchen, no howling in the car and no sulking on release. In fact the whole experience was far less stressful than a usual visit to the vet's. Amy and Shreen are charming and the cats thought so too!

“Outstanding! My cats are delighted :)”


I cannot recommend this service highly enough.

We got an evening appointment which was very convenient as both my husband and I could be involved. Amy and Shreen were fantastic at handling the cats and this, along with treatment in our own home, made an enormous difference to them - as well as us. Neither of our cats appeared in the least bit stressed and took everything in their stride. Quite a contrast to the previous stresses of getting them into the car and along to the local vet.

Amy took the time to talk us through the examinations and discuss treatment options carefully. We did not feel rushed at all - and had plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss what was going on.

After the appointment we received a written report ( by email) setting out the findings of the examinations in detail, and the treatments given, which was really helpful.

We will definitely continue to use this service. The quality of treatment and the service provided is outstanding, it is very convenient, and it will undoubtedly be the kinder option to treat our cats at home - particularly as they age.

Once again, Amy and Shereens care for Daisy was fabulous. She became suddenly very poorly,and I was able to get an appointment within an hour, where they came out, and examined her with great sensitivity and patience,plus administered antibiotics and painkillers to her, as she had a fever. Totally brilliant vet and assistant. They offer superb care, and expertise. I feel so lucky to have them as the care team for my cat.

“Outstanding service and dedication to Cats”

We simply cannot praise the cat doctor highly enough!! Amy & Shreen are highly professional, caring, empathetic, and totally dedicated. Not only do they take their time to understand your cat but also explain diagnosis of your pets illness in a way that is easy for people without medical background to understand.

We only found out about The Cat Doctor 6 months ago when looking for a good vets for our elderly cat Pushkin (20yrs) who hated the whole ordeal of going to the vets and was very poorly. Whatever help & advice we needed they came to our aid quickly and thoughtfully, ensuring we understood the treatments and outcomes at every step. When the sad day to say goodbye came they helped make a really heartbreaking time as calm and stress free as it possibly can be.

Having visited lots of vets in the Surrey area in the last 8yrs we can honestly say this is the best service we have ever received and if we get another cat we'll be back. I definitely would recommend The Cat Doctor, it really is worth spending the extra for a mobile specialised service this good!

“A vetinary comfort blankett with superb service, a smile and cat treats!”

We have been using the Cat Doctor since we moved into the area about 6 months ago, from day 1 both Amy and Shreen have been fantastic, they are always available, with friendly advice by phone or email for less serious ailments for just when advice is needed but equally ready to get in the car and come see us at short notice.

With 6 cats and a very busy schedule this service has taken the stress out of vet visits for both us and our cats.

To have a vet that specialises in cats is a joy for us as we have struggled to find a vet that truly loves cats and knows them well.

The instant rapor, genuine concern and level of attention that our cats get from The Cat Doctor is a real comfort to us and we hughly appreciatative that we have found them!

We cannot recommend them highly enough.

“Excellent Service - Highly Recommend”

Amy and Shreen are a highly professional and friendly duo who genuinely care about cats and their owners, turn up when they say they will and provide a great service all round. Poppy's trip to the vet to have her teeth cleaned was hassle free for both of us - Amy and Shreen picked her up in the morning and dropped her back at lunchtime, having phoned up to let me know they were on their way. All I had to do was wait at home! Their after care was great too. They also suggested that Poppy goes on a diet and took the time to recommend good quality food and suggest the portions that Poppy should be having every day. There's no escaping Shreen and her reminder emails checking that I'm doing the right thing! I am very impressed with their service and highly recommend them.

Thanks for coming over this week to do your Vet stuff on our two brutes, they thoroughly enjoyed the lack of car-journey and associated friction that they usually get.

Also your suggestions on diet and possible brands of food for them was much appreciated.

Nice to meet you both and see you next time Roxy & Archie need their treatments.
