There was a time when parasites like fleas, ticks, and roundworms were considered mostly a nuisance. Now, however, we know that parasites can cause serious illness and even death in cats. For example, ticks can transmit infections like Lyme disease, and fleas can transmit tapeworms and Bartonella – the bacteria that causes “cat-scratch fever” in humans.
You may not always be able to tell if your kitty has parasites. Fleas can hide under your cat’s fur, and some ticks are very tiny (only the size of a pinhead), so they are very difficult to find. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea and other problems, but many infected pets don’t show any signs of illness at all.
Fortunately, we can recommend tests to tell if your feline has parasites. We can also examine your cat for evidence of fleas, ticks, or other parasites. Our expert staff can recommend medications to help control fleas, ticks, and intestinal parasites. Preventing parasites in your pets also helps protect children and other family members, so let’s work together to protect your kitties and family.
Spay, Neuter and Other Feline Surgical Procedures
In our continuing efforts to offer the highest quality feline veterinary medicine, we are pleased to provide a wide range of surgical services for our kitty patients. From routine surgical procedures, such as spaying and neutering, to more complex surgeries, we look forward to the opportunity to care for your cat’s surgical needs.
Cats like to mark their territory. They do this with scent glands on their heads and near their mouths. Male cats also use scent glands near their anus to mark territory. Neutering a male cat early in life may cut down on him spraying his scent on doors jams, carpets and furniture. If you do not intend on breeding your furry friend, please consider neutering him early.
Our staff is highly skilled in performing veterinary surgeries and will make every effort to ensure that your kitty receives the very best care. Our focus on patient safety, pain management, and employing the most current surgical practices is designed to exceed your expectations and put your concerns to rest. We will also address any questions or concerns you may have about surgery, including concerns about anesthesia, pain management, or postoperative care.
Many vaccines are available for use in dogs and cats, but not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk for exposure to disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your cat should have.
