At Cat’s Corner we pride ourselves on our ‘open door policy.’ We want to be as transparent as possible to our clients. Whenever possible, we offer tours, perform routine care in the exam room with the owner, encourage owners to visit their hospitalized pet, and recommend anyone who is not already a client to come down and visit us first. We’d love to meet you!
Did you know that cats are very good at hiding signs of illness? This is why preventive care examinations for all of our patients need to occur on a regular basis. Young healthy cats and senior cats need to be seen at a minimum of once yearly for examinations. Geriatric patients and those with chronic conditions need to be seen twice yearly for examinations. These visits are important to your cat’s individualized healthcare plan. Some things that will be discussed and assessed are nutrition, lifestyle, environmental enrichment, disease, parasite prevention, and behavior. Cats age more rapidly than we do so preventive care examinations are a crucial part of a healthy lifestyle. During the physical examination, our veterinarians can often detect conditions that may affect your cat’s health long before they become significant, or obvious, allowing you and us to manage or cure them before they become painful or more costly. You are an important member of your cat’s healthcare team.
The stress of the visit for the feline family member and yourself is a true concern for us. We realize this can be a true deterrent when it comes to keeping them up to date with their routine care. We find that our environment, being quiet and free from the sounds and smells of canine patients makes all the difference. Our staff is highly trained to be able to handle our patients with the utmost care and patience. We appreciate the bond between our patients and their owners and we will make every effort to keep you both comfortable and close to each other during every visit, every time.
However, sometimes the biggest challenge is just getting them in to the carrier! There are so many different tricks and tips to help. Visit the Media page where there are helpful videos that talk about getting your feline family member here safely.
Remember, you are most instrumental in helping your cat live the happy and healthy life they deserve.
