During the months of June and July we are offering 50% off blood pressure checks for cats over 7 years old.
Hypertension is a medical term for high blood pressure. Many pet owners are not aware that cats can also suffer from Hypertension too.
As with people there are no visible outward signs and hypertension may stay undiagnosed for a long period of time which can have serious consequences. The risk of hypertension also increases with age.
The only way to know if a cat’s blood pressure is high is by measuring it. Measuring blood pressure is easy, quick and completely painless. It only takes a few minutes and is extremely well tolerated by most cats. It is recommended for cats over the age of 7 or if they are suffering with kidney disease or hyperthyroid disease to have their blood pressure measured at least once a year.
*FACT: 1 in 8 cats over 9 years old suffer with hypertension*
So, why not treat your cat’s (must be 7 years or over) this June and July and book them in for a blood pressure check with one of our lovely nurses! During this clinic we will allow time for your pet to adjust to there surroundings in the consult room and then take the blood pressure readings. We will take a brief recent history and also weigh them as well.
