Lime Trees Vets of Stoke on Trent, part of IVC Evidensia, is opening the first cat-only clinic in Staffordshire in October. The Lime Trees Cat Clinic will provide complete veterinary care to feline patients across the county and beyond, offering general preventative healthcare as well as advanced procedures and treatments.

Leading the operation is Senior Vet Dr Jodie Tanner, who has worked at Lime Trees since graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2015. Owning five cats aged between 18 months and 20 years old, Jodie understands the special requirements feline patients have,

“With this new facility, we will be able to provide a full range of services to cats and their owners in a calm and stress-free environment.”

Jodie is studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Feline Medicine and will work alongside colleagues who also have a special interest in cats. The clinic will boast state-of-the-art facilities with cat-friendly design and has achieved Gold status, the highest accolade from the International Society of Feline Medicine.

An Open Day will be held at the new clinic on Sunday 3rd October when guests will be welcomed by the Cat Clinic team and Lime Trees Clinical Director, Dr Hywel Parry. Hywel said,

“I am delighted that Lime Trees is able to offer this feline-only clinic. The team and I have always been proud to provide exceptional patient and client care, and I'm sure this new service will continue that vein.”

The open day will raise funds for local charity Cheadle and District Animal Welfare, who care for and re-home over a hundred cats and kittens each year.

The Lime Trees Cat Clinic will be the only exclusively feline practice in Staffordshire, and one of only a handful in the UK. Looking forward to the venture Jodie added,

“As anyone who owns cats knows, they are very special pets with an independent streak that is often difficult to interpret. At Lime Trees Cat Clinic we will endeavour to understand our feline patients’ individual characters whilst offering high-level veterinary care.”
