Feline Vet

In human healthcare, it's common practice for medical GPs to refer patients to recognised specialists ('consultants') to assist with challenging medical and surgical cases. A similar system exists in the veterinary field. In other words, while many ailments are properly catered for at the veterinary GP level, there are inevitably many situations where a greater level of knowledge and expertise will be required. 

Board Recognised Veterinary Specialists are trained to an advanced level in a particular veterinary field. This allows them to work alongside your usual vet in providing optimal care for your pet.  Feline-specific specialists (RCVS, American, Australian- recognised) exist, but are considered few and far between with less than 120 worldwide! If you would like advice from a feline-specific specialist, then please ask your usual vet to arrange for a referral.  This is common practice and you will not offend your vet by requesting this service.

Aerokat video

The video was provided by the client of one of FAB's Practice Members in Germany.  The cat in the video, Kitty, had been suffering badly with asthma and regular therapy was not really helping. However Kitty is now doing very well thanks to the use of the Aerokat inhaler.

 With thanks to FAB and Birgit Leopold-Temmler for providing such informative client and veterinary information
