As clinicians our goal is to extend feline life to twenty years of age in the twenty first century. It is certainly possible with modern medical technologies and practices. To extend the life of your favourite feline it is important to vaccinate your pet against preventable diseases and worm and flea them regularly and to feed them the correct nutrition. It is critical to do annual senior health screening with a blood test from the age of eight to check the thyroid, blood sugars, liver function and kidney function in particular. In 2017 our very own Oliver, Australia's number one cat has turned fifteen years of age. We have been running biannual blood tests on Oliver to assess his health. We hope to get our bundle of ginger awesomeness to twenty years of age and beyond. If you love your cat, we'd love to help you too.

Feline Gastroenterology


A cat should not vomit more than twice a month. Yes hair balls are common in cats but if your cat vomits more than twice a month, you should see us at Treendale Pet medical. We will recommend an ultrasound to looks at your cats gastrointestinal system. It is important to measure the thickness of the duodenum, jejunum and iliem as well as look at the mesenteric lymph nodes, the ileocaecal valve, the colon and the sublumbar lymph nodes for evidence of disease. Adverse food reaction (food allergy) is common in cats and leads to inflammatory bowel disease and ultimately to lymphoma. Disease is often in segments which causes the cat to vomit as intestinal peristasis stops in these areas of thickening.
