The Silver Whiskers Club is aimed at our senior cats over 11 years old. The aim of our clinic is to help us diagnose any underlying health conditions that may not be outwardly noticeable.
The clinic involves a 30-minute appointment with one of our senior cat care enthusiasts, Susan or Paulene. During this consult we will discuss any health concerns that you may have. We perform a full clinical exam, check their blood pressure and test your cat’s urine sample. We encourage screening for high blood pressure (hypertension) and kidney disease, as early treatment can make a huge difference to how your pet copes with the disease.
