Jo is the resident feline advice vet for The Good Vet & Pet Guide, the UK's most comprehensive directory for helping owners find a good vet. She has been featured in Your Cat & Your Residence magazines. Her unusual career path also captured the attention of the world-renowned professional industry journal the Veterinary Record.
"First and foremost, as you've probably guessed, I LOVE CATS! I’ve always had them and I just love looking after them.
With the support of my amazing husband, I finally set up The Cat Vet Home Visiting Clinic. I now have the freedom to run a cat friendly vet clinic that meets my own high standards and allows me the time to go the extra mile - something all cats and their owners deserve.
Now I can devote my career to genuinely making a difference to the health & well-being of each & every cat that crosses my path but of course that has meant breaking free from the traditional vet practice mould and combine my two special concepts "Cats Only" and "Home Visiting"
... which I am sure you will agree is a simply purrfect combination."

Tinkie hardly even noticed that Jo was there, and carried on purring even during the booster injection! The cost is more expensive, but well worth it as the service is exceptionally good.
A must for troubled cats/owners! Worth every penny and more.
Jo arrived on time and the appointment was very relaxed and unhurried. Jo has given lots of advice regarding treatment we can give which we will try in the future. If you have a nervous or stressed cat then this could be a good option for you. It is for us.
Not putting my cat into a cage and driving to the vets reduced my stress as well as his.
If you have a cat of any age and are lucky enough to be in an area that Jo covers you must setup a visit and have the peace of mind I now have.
Thank you Jo
When I found out about Jo I was so relieved that I wouldn't have to take Chip to the vet for his check-ups and needless to say I was not disappointed.
Jo is amazing, she talked me through any worries I had, Chip even let her examine him! And to make the experience even better he was perfectly happy and content afterwards when normally he would hide for weeks after a vet visit.
I would recommend Jo's services to anyone. I honestly can't imagine anyone else looking after my cat.
Our vets recommended I contact Jo and we met her on Wednesday! She says she's not a cat whisperer, but I dunno! All my girls were happy to greet her. Smudge, usually under the bed at the mere sight of a stranger, even let herself be stroked, before she remembered to try and hide!
Everything that would have been done in the vet surgery, was done in my front bedroom with so much less stress for Smudge. So much so that she forgot about going to hide out under the bed for even an hour, never mind weeks or months. You'd never have guessed that she'd seen the vet and even given a couple of blood samples!
I would totally recommend Jo. Prices are your typical vet prices. It doesn't seem more expensive than a trip to the vet in the car- just a whole lot less stressful for all concerned.
She has a calming influence, is incredible knowledgeable and it was clear from the start she adores cats and enjoys her job.
I had been hesitant in having my cat, Jeff, checked over as he is very anxious and hates meeting new people.
But, Jeff was relaxed throughout and it meant so much that Jo took the time to understand his personality in order to give him the best treatment.
Money cannot buy the peace of mind knowing he has been checked over and is in absolutely great hands.
The whole visit was stress free and even though I thought I knew much about cats - Jo knows everything & it was really good to be left with some great tips for the future.
I cannot recommend Jo enough, she really is superb.
It's hugely comforting to know that, in the short time he has left with us, Simba is getting the very best care anyone could ask for. We simply cannot recommend Jo highly enough. I don't believe Carlsberg make vets, but if they did . . . . . . !
When it came to giving them their booster shots, there was virtually no stress as Hugo and Jamie were too distracted by the treats she brought with her to even notice what was going on. Jo clearly loves cats and was very gentle and patient with them. She provides a thorough, personal service and it was the perfect solution for Jamie. We will never again have to put Jamie through the trauma he experiences when travelling in the car to the vets. Jo is worth every penny, we're so glad we've found her.
Jo went out of her way to accommodate and it saved Pilou the trauma of another visit with the car, the wait, get stuck in traffic etc..I really recommend her, she is very sweet and professional , I was very impressed as she got in touch with my vet for Pilou's notes (I did not know she could do that) I thought next my vet will struck me out! She urged me to have a test that Pilou needs and I shall get on with it anyway. So happy Pilou and happy me. Jo is a rare find.
Last summer he made friends with some very resilient flees. I tried everything to break up the friendship but to no avail. I turned to the local vet for assistance and, over the phone, was advised there are prescription strength remedies to address the problem. All I needed to do was register and bring Bob in for a check-up. There was no other way so I tried other Vets, same problem.
I searched the internet and came across Jo. I spoke with Jo on the phone and nervous cats seemed to be her speciality. Worth a try then so we agreed an appointment and hoped for the best. The visit was a stunning success, I could hardly believe my luck. Bob the elusive, laid on his back, let Jo stroke him, weigh him and dispense treatments bringing an almost instant solution to his fleas.
More recently Bob broke off a canine tooth so I called Jo again. We had the usual challenges round getting Bob in the house, keeping him in the house, especially difficult as it is summertime and Bob virtually lives outside. Eventually Bob came in, we kept him in and Jo visited.
Jo dealt with everything from that point. Making friends with Bob, diagnosis, dispensing medicine, arranging the treatment with the local vet, providing them with information, catching Bob (near impossible in my opinion)
I recommend Jo wholeheartedly. She is a rare find who really delivers way beyond expectation.
Our cat, Sebastian, had a rather severe dose of cat flu and visits to the local vet were proving very stressful, which was not ideal given he is 18. Jo came to the house and spend an hour getting to know him and us. The whole experience was very relaxing and totally focused on getting the right support for Sebastian. A huge contrast to our usual visits to the vet and most importantly Sebastian was happy throughout and afterwards.
The real difference was that you had the time to ask questions and discuss the best solutions in a relaxed manner and it was clear that Jo really cared. We are so glad to have found her! For us, after this first experience, home visits are definitely the way to go!
Jo was there to support me while I had to make this heart breaking decision. And when the time came , she performed the euthanasia on our Cat, with him being in his favourite room and me sitting next to him. All if us had plenty of time to say Goodbye, at no point we were rushed through. Everything was dealt with very professionally and I could see just how much Jo cared about our Cat ( and about us). In total, she spent over 2 hours with us, and this is much longer than we would have in a clinic. Also, as Cat was terrified to get to vets during his final months, home euthanasia was certainly most kind gift we could give him.
Although our hearts still ache after losing our little friend, we know that his final moments were as peaceful as it could be possible, and this knowledge gives us comfort.
I hope more vets will consider home visits in the future.
Jo really took her time on her first visit, and made sure Ella was comfortable, and at ease, before examining her.
Jo also gave good advice and was happy to listen to any questions I had.
I found 'The Cat Vet' via the internet and it was the best thing I have ever done. Jo obtained all the background about Poppy and came prepared with ideas about causes and treatments, suggestions and little tips. She took plenty of time to gain Poppy's trust on her first visit so that she could examine her with as little stress as possible and gain a complete history.
Jo's communication before, during and after the consultations has been amazing - she really cares how Poppy is doing and has shared every success with me. Her website also contains a huge amount of advice, factsheets etc to support visits, conditions and anything else you can think of.
I cannot recommend her highly enough! Poppy has improved so much in just 3 weeks and it's all thanks to Jo.
