Specialist Medical Appointments

  • From $230

Service Description

Dr Carolyn O'Brien is our resident Feline Medicine Specialist, and she is available to see referral cases from other veterinarians, as well as advanced second-opinion cases without referral. She will undertake a thorough review of your cat's clinical record and will design a diagnostic and treatment program to address your cat's medical issues. Dr O'Brien is an internationally recognised speaker and teacher, and she is the author of numerous research articles and textbook chapters. She has a Masters degree and PhD in Infectious Diseases, and has worked in feline specialist practice for over 20 years. Where appropriate, Dr O'Brien will work closely with Veterinary Dermatologists, Ophthalmologists, Radiologists, Critical Care Specialists and Surgeons to optimise the outcome for your cat. During each visit your cat will undergo a complete physical examination. Some very nervous cats may need medications on the day of their appointment to relieve veterinary-visit anxiety. Please give us a call prior to your visit, if you think this would be of assistance for your cat.
