Welcome to Cambridge Cat Clinic. We are Cambridgeshire's first feline only veterinary clinic, located in Fulbourn, only 15 minutes from Cambridge city centre. We look forward to welcoming you and your cat at the clinic. Please get in touch for more information about the clinic, opening hours or to register your cat and book an appointment. We have recently achieved all the Cat Friendly Clinic standards at Gold level (Advanced) a scheme run by the ISFM.
Nearly a year has gone by since we opened our doors to our first human and feline friends. The clinic has gone from strength to strength during the year, exceeding our expectations. We are so proud to be offering the highest quality, stress free care to every cat and their family. We have been acknowledged by the ISFM achieving gold status in their cat friendly clinic scheme, as well as nominations in the Petplan clinic of the year and vet of the year awards.
The crocuses are out and I am really noticing my increased energy levels that the lighter mornings and spring sunshine brings. Cats are definitely venturing out again after their winter hibernation indoors and I have been seeing them getting into all kinds of scrapes in the last couple of weeks!
Day length is actually very important to cats, as in other animals, and triggers the release of various hormones which affect breeding cycles, activity levels and of course hair growth. Have you noticed that you need to hoover more in the spring?
I am the first to admit it, but I am somewhat of a geek, especially when it comes to blood pressure problems, or hypertension. I was first drawn in when I learnt in my physiology lectures about the Reverend Stephen Hales (shown in the picture), measuring arterial pressure for the very first time in the 18thcentury. His technique involved placing a glass tube in a horse’s carotid artery. This was a ‘one off’ measurement, as I don’t think he replaced the blood back into the horse!
