Cat Information

Cats are indepedent, yet loving companions.

Cats can generally be litterbox trained and do not need to go outside. A cat that lives indoors exclusively is more likely to live a long, healthy life.

Veterinary Care - We currently offer vaccinations against rabies, rhinotracheitis/calicivirus/panleukopenia ('distemper'), leukemia and fip (feline infectious peritonitis).

A fecal check should be performed yearly to make sure your cat does not have intestinal parasites (some, of which, they can give to you!) Even an indoor exclusively cat can have intestinal parasites. Cats tend to hunt mice and insects which can infect your cat with these parasites.

A heartworm test should be performed annually. Leukemia/FIV/FIP tests should be performed on cats who are exposed to other cats or who go outside.

Your cat should be on heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives.

Please speak to our staff about which vaccines and preventatives are appropriate for your cat.
