Behaviour correction clinics
We are providing pet behaviour clinics here at Rhyd Broughton with one of our nurses. Hannah is a registered veterinary nurse who has completed a Ncert/AnBeh/Tech certificate in small animal behaviour.
An initial 45-minute consultation where we will obtain your concerns and gather patient history to create a timeline to target any significant events that may be linked to behavioural changes that your pet is displaying. We will do an initial assessment of your pet’s body language at time of consult. Working with you, the caregiver, we can then further analyse your pets body language and reaction behaviour through video footage taken of your pet in their home comforts. These can then be emailed to the practice for analysis. We will also discuss safety tips, further information will be provided on both pharmaceutical and nutraceutical intervention and how they can aid your pet through their behaviour correction journey, and how they can offer emotional and neurological support providing a holistic approach to treating your pet.
After receiving the video footage, a further discussion will be had via telephone consult informing you of a potential treatment plan, which will then be emailed or posted to you, for you to follow. You will then be invited to return to practice for a follow-up appointment which will last 30 minutes, this will include re-evaluation of progress and further advice and will be charged as an additional fee.

Rhyd Broughton cattery
Our Rhyd Broughton cattery is a spacious establishment which houses 25 individual cat pens. Our pens are dual levelled with a ramp to the higher tier, allowing your cat to access the sleeping area for peace and solitude. The pens and cattery are supported by mildly textured floor tiles which makes for easy grip for cats with mobility issues.
We have an extra-large pen that would be able to accommodate up to 3 cats comfortably. This may not always be available as it is popular with our multi cat household clients. Alternatively, our standard cat pens will house 1-2 cats comfortably.
The cattery itself possesses both artificial and natural lighting with central heating and air conditioning to provide a comfortable environment throughout the year. It is protected by a fire alarm, and we have CCTV on the premises.
Rhyd Broughton Vets is a cat friendly practice and has been awarded a silver accreditation by the ISFM in recognition of this. We have pheromone therapy plug-ins throughout the cattery aiding your cats in managing their stress levels while in the cattery environment. We minimise stress naturally by providing hiding places, allowing pets to bring their own bed or bedding and toys or comforts from home.
All our staff are trained in cat handling and recognising cat behaviour to ensure we adapt our handling and interaction techniques to suit your pet.
Our Cattery is based on our veterinary practice grounds which means there are vets and nurses on site should your pet require any additional medical care. If your cat possesses a medical condition that requires medication to be provided, we have trained staff on site to administer the treatment they need.
The cattery has ramp access should that be required when leaving your feline companion in our care. We accept both long and short stay bookings and can take bookings at short notice, depending on cat pen availability.
If you are requiring the use of our cattery, please contact the practice and speak to one of our animal care advisors who will support you through the booking process.
