The London Cat Clinic, a brand new purpose built feline-only practice was opened on May 25, by Bob the Streetcat and owner James Bowen.
The clinic is situated at 82-86 Spa Rd, in the heart of the Bermondsey regeneration area. Catering for the health and well being of all cats from kittens through to their ‘golden’ years, the state of the art 2500 sq ft clinic is the brainchild of feline veterinarian Dr Jeremy Campbell.
The London Cat Clinic is the realisation of three years hard work, transforming his passion for feline medicine and expert healthcare into the largest independent single species practice in London.
One of only 20 vets in the UK to have qualified as Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Advanced Practitioner in Feline Medicine, Dr Campbell explains “Every detail of the London Cat Clinic has been carefully designed with the welfare and comfort of our patients in mind. As cat experts and owners ourselves, we know that cats like to control their environment and away from home they can become easily stressed.
At the London Cat Clinic we have created a light, airy, spacious place where cats will immediately feel relaxed, and we can effectively examine and accurately diagnose any underlying signs of illness or disease which are easily hidden if the cat is anxious. From the moment you book an appointment with our friendly receptionist to the time you leave, our mission is to make sure you and your cat receive outstanding care.”
The clinic offers a unique drop off service for London’s busy lifestyles, allowing owners to leave their precious charges under the expert care of Dr Campbell while they are at work. Each patient will be given a 20 minute consultation in a room designed to exceed the Gold Standards set by the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM), which sets requirements for veterinary practices covering staff qualifications, clinical skills and environment.
Cats can make use of special ‘Cat Cubbies’ in the consult rooms, these cat-sized cut-outs in the wall are ideal for nervous cats to jump or walk up into using three large steps that they can step/perch on as they choose at any point along their journey. They have been created specifically to reduce anxiety during consultations.
A large number of advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures can be performed on-site using the clinic’s cutting edge ultrasonography, radiography, endoscopy and laparoscopy equipment, reducing the need to send your cat elsewhere. Owners can rest assured their cat is in safe hands as all procedures are tailored to specific feline requirements right down to the size of the equipment and the circulated warm air blankets used to maintain body heat during surgery.
Patients required to stay at the clinic are kept safe and warm on a climate-controlled ward. All their accommodations have been specifically designed and built using the best materials to keep noise down and retain warmth and are larger than the standard size. The clinic can even offer tinted doors for those kitties who love their privacy.
