The Cat Clinic Hobart
Veterinarians - Taroona, TAS
We believe you and your cat will enjoy visiting The Cat Clinic Hobart as much as we enjoy seeing you and your cat.
Our veterinary specialist clinic offers animal boarding, ultrasound, surgery and more
The Cat Clinic Hobart is exclusively for cats. We have created a cat friendly environment that is quiet, clean and calm. There are no strong smells, loud noises or curious dogs that your cat doesn’t know. Your cat will experience less stress resulting in better healing and recovery. All our staff love cats. We have dedicated our knowledge and skills to the veterinary care of cats and can discuss with you appropriate care options to ensure together we make the best decisions for your cat.
The Cat Clinic Hobart was founded by Dr Moira van Dorsselaer who has been practicing as a small animal veterinarian since graduating from the University of Queensland in 1998.
Although Moira has always seen both cats and dogs for this entire time, she has always had a love of cats (despite having some amazing dog patients over those 12 years, they know who they are!) and has always had a dream of opening a ‘Cat Only’ clinic in Hobart.
Consultations & Routine Health Checks:
At The Cat Clinic Hobart we offer routine consultations exclusively for cats. Our hospital has been designed with only cats in mind and our waiting room is comfortable, clean and quiet. Our consultation rooms are cat focused and we have only equipment that is cat friendly. Our staff understand the special needs of cats and are skilled at handling them to minimise their stress when coming to the vets.
The Cat Clinic Hobart supports the routine vaccination of all cats against major infectious diseases. Recent scientific evidence has questioned the necessity for routine annual vaccinations and whether vaccine-induced immunity will last more than 12 months. Currently there is insufficient evidence to determine the optimum frequency of vaccination for any individual disease. There is no doubt in anyones mind that vaccinations have played a vital role in reducing the prevalence and severity of several feline diseases including some that are associated with a high mortality rate and for this reason we support owners making an informed choice about which vaccine components should be used, and the frequency of booster vaccinations, based on current best evidence and the individual needs of each cat, keeping in mind genuine risks and needs.
