Willows Veterinary Centre & Referral Service in Solihull, one of the leading animal hospitals in the UK, has opened a specialist internal medicine clinic for felines.

Headed by Stephanie Lalor, a European Specialist in Internal Medicine, the clinic provides initial assessment and treatment tailored for each patient – offering everything from blood work and blood pressure to ongoing care.

Suitable for cats with a wide range of medical conditions, including respiratory tract disease, gastrointestinal conditions and endocrinopathies, the clinic is housed in Willows iCatCare certified ‘cat-friendly’ facility, which has its own cat ward and waiting area.

Stephanie, who completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Edinburgh University (funded by International Cat Care) in 2014, and then completed the Diploma of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine last year, said: “Here at Willows we do all we can to minimise the difficulties that cats and their owners might encounter when they come to see us.

“Our staff are trained to be aware of their needs and we have put in place not only the necessary facilities but also specific working practices in order to make any visit as stress-free as possible.

“These cat-specific clinics will be yet another string to our bow and we will work closely with referring vets to ensure that we meet each patient’s unique needs – providing a detailed written report following each visit.”
