A leading feline welfare charity has produced a new guidebook to educate veterinary professionals about its work.
 
Cats Protection (CP) has produced CP: the veterinary guide, which sets out the issues facing cats in the UK, highlights how the charity aims to tackle these issues from a veterinary perspective, and gives practices guidance on how to care for animals awaiting rehoming.
 
Cats Protection has produced a guide on its activities for practicesKey issues covered in the guide include:

•      feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia virus testing
•      vaccination and parasite control
•      pre-pubertal neutering
•      microchipping
•      feline behaviour
•      quality of life and euthanasia
•      rehoming and adoption
•      costs
 
Maggie Roberts, the charity’s director of veterinary services, said: “Veterinary care is a key part of Cats Protection’s work and Cats Protection is proud of its good relationship with the veterinary profession.
 
“We hope the guide will be helpful to practices that treat cats that are in Cats Protection’s care or neuter cats with the financial support of CP neutering schemes. Times are hard and demand is high. We hope that by working together we can more effectively use our resources to help more cats.”
 
She added: “We also hope the guide will encourage more practices to sign up to our early neutering register, which is available online and helps cat owners to locate a local veterinary practice that neuters cats at four months of age or earlier.”
 
Around 1,000 practices are already signed up to the charity’s early neutering register. Practices can sign up by visiting the Cats Protection website and downloading the flyer.
 
CP: the veterinary guide is being sent to all veterinary practices known to the charity, but can also be downloaded from the Cats Protection website.
