Because the requirements of cats are different from those of dogs, we have a nurse dedicated to ensuring the practice meets their needs.
Hawthorne Lodge has a separate cat area in the waiting room away from the eyes of nosy dogs. Clients are welcome to place cat baskets on the chairs or table provided, as cats feel safer off the floor. Blankets are available to cover your cat basket with, to make your cat feel even more secure.
Our separate cat ward has air conditioning to help keep our patients cool in summer and warm in winter. Each of our spacious cat beds has a hide-away to provide privacy. We also have a separate treatment room for cats.
In recognition of the level of care we provide cats, we have been officially designated as a “cat friendly” practice by International Cat Care – one of only two practices in Oxfordshire to achieve this accolade.
