Vaccinations are a major part of preventive health treatment and good pet care. They help to reduce the risk of disease in your cat. As established vets covering the Hammersmith area, we strongly recommend that your cat has its booster injections annually. Worming should be carried out on a regular basis too. Worms in cats are far more damaging to the feline species than they are to canines. Routine worming reduces weight loss and diarrhoea.
Micro chipping is a straightforward exercise which can be easily carried out by our veterinarians, who can conduct the procedure under general anaesthetic while neutering; something which should take place around the 4 or 5 month mark for responsible pet care and providing a more stable lifestyle for your cat in the future.
All vets covering the Hammersmith area believe that dental care and diet should be monitored to prolong a cat’s life. Our vet surgery will advise on what type of dental pet care your cat should have, and how to take care of your cat’s teeth at home. Don’t forget that Acton Lane Vets also cover the whole of West London on an emergency basis.
