In order to make your cat visit a pleasant experience we became Cat Friendly Certified. We have a Cat’s only room and waiting area, calm handling, pleasant cat smells and warm towels to relax you cats. We also make every effort to schedule your appointment when there are minimal distractions that could arouse our feline patients.
Cats often collect chronic long term illnesses as they age. Very thirsty kitties and weight loss are often early signs of illness. Rough ungroomed haircoats can also be an early indication that your kitty is not feeling well.
These symptoms can result from Kidney Disease, Urinary Infections, Pancreatitis, Hyperthyroidism (overactive Thyroid Glands), Diabetes, Hypertension or High Blood Pressure, Inflamatory Bowel Disease, and Gum Disease. These conditions can be detected with Wellness Testing and Health Exams. In addition, according to some cardiologists, 15% of cats have heart disease, Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, which can easily be diagnosed with screening tests and ultrasound. Quality of life will improve when these chronic conditions above are recognized and treated.
