Cat Friendly Facilities & Services

At Larkmead Vets, we understand a visit to the vets can feel stressful for some cats, and their owners. We have always been committed to developing ways to improve our feline facilities and services so that all our patients can have a positive experience at every visit.

Special care for cats at Larkmead Vets

Larkmead Vets in Cholsey and Didcot are both ISFM Accredited Cat Friendly Clinics, achieving silver status for the special care and consideration we give to cats.

At these practices we have separate waiting areas so your pet (and you) can relax, away from curious canines. Blankets are available on request from our reception team to cover cat carriers whilst you wait and all our staff have been trained to understand the specific needs of cats.

Our cat-only in-patient wards house individual cat kennels with comfortable bedding in a quiet space, with plug-in pheromone diffusers for added calm.

We do our very best to mirror the same cat care principles at our branch surgeries in Great Western Park, Benson, and Sutton Courtenay.


Our many veterinary services for cats include:
