Cat vet care

Exotic Persian cat

Breed specific cat

We love all cats, pedigree, or moggie, and can give you advice and tips on how to care for the individual needs of your cat. As we deal with pedigree breeds on a regular basis, we are aware of the considerations of these breeds (or can discuss with our team if we are unfamiliar with the breed you have or are interested in getting) and take this into account when making recommendations for their care or procedures they may need in the future.

If you are thinking of getting a pedigree, the icat care website will have information about that breed. We now can perform some genetic tests in NZ, which is a great option for breeds predisposed to certain conditions. You'll also find useful information about what care they may need on a daily basis, for example brushing daily with a long-haired cat or wiping eyes and nasal folds in a brachycephalic (short-nosed) cat.

Cat vaccination

Touching base on a yearly basis is essential with all cats to assess their overall health & well-being and to run through their current environmental, lifestyle and health needs to come up with a tailored strategy of disease prevention.

The Strand Vet is passionate about preventative care and tailoring this to the individual, as we know each family, cat and environment are different. A perfect example of this is a new baby in the house, the last thing you would be thinking about would be what worming treatment your cat needs or does their diet need to change to keep your baby safe, but we have that covered. Young or old, these appointments are valuable for all involved.

Cat arthritis

Cats love to jump and always enjoy the high spots to check out the sights and sound of their home, garden, or neighbourhood. AArthritis can be subtle at first, but this is the time we want to do something about it – giving them additional support measures to slow the progression and keep them active well into their golden years. Arthritic cats will still climb – they just will not be as graceful as they were when they were a kitten – so we can guide you with what to look for as they head towards 7 years and beyond.

We have some great pet arthritis plans at The Strand Vet and have worked hard over the years to find products that are of high quality, easy to administer and make a measurable difference in their lives. As they get older and need extra help, we offer monthly osteoarthritis exams with our qualified veterinary nurses to provide laser and/ or injections to keep them pain free and as agile as they can be. It is our passion so let us be part of their senior journey.
