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.

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!

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Outstanding service, professionalism and care. Amy and Shreen were brilliant. Our dear sweet cats had a stress-free examination and we, as owners, were delighted. Thank you!

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 :)
