Cat Clinic Northampton
Our Cat Clinic at Spinney Vets in Wootton Fields, Northampton, are proud to have been awarded a Silver Level Cat-Friendly Clinic. We are similarly proud to be members of the ISFM, the International Society of Feline Medicine.
We understand that cats are sensitive creatures that are extremely aware of their environment. It is, therefore, important for us to demonstrate our dedication and commitment to ensuring the comfort and care of the cats under our care. We have improved our cat clinic by working alongside ICC, or International Car Care, and have made our space the best for feline patients as possible!

What Facilities are in our Cat Clinic?
Our Cat Clinic in Wootton Fields is designed to minimise stress, fear, and anxiety for your cat. Our in-house advocates, Lisa Bond & Alison Pitt are available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have, including how to transport your cat safely and comfortably to Spinney Vets. They provide this alongside providing information and advice on caring for your cat.
Our facilities are equipped with:
A waiting room separated from the main clinic for your cat. This includes raised areas to place your carrier to ensure that it is away from the reach of other animals.
A visual barrier to separate the cat-friendly waiting room from the rest of the clinic. This is beneficial in providing an additional sense of security for your cat.
Feline Pheromone diffusers to ensure your cats can remain calm and reassured whilst in our clinic.
Quiet consulting rooms that are designed specifically for the comfort of your cat.
A wide range of high-quality equipment, such as cat-specific blood pressure monitors and weight scales. These ensure the most accurate readings and representations of your cat’s health.
A designated ward in our hospital includes a visual barrier between cats and any other hospitalised animals. Our wards also provide soft bedding, cat igloos, perches and/or hide boxes to ensure your cat has privacy during their time with us.
Our pet health for life plan is designed to offer preventative care for your cat as an affordable and convenient healthcare plan. Starting at as little as £15 per month, you can relax with the knowledge that your cat’s essential treatments are on top of, and their healthcare is already covered. Learn more here!
