Care & Wellness

  • Spraying is the deposition of small amounts of urine on vertical surfaces. In most cases, the spraying cat will back into the area, the tail may quiver, and with little or no crouching, will urinate.

  • Some cats are active at night, or are awake and “raring to go” very early in the morning. Since many owners are out at work or school during the day, the cat may spend the daytime hours in rest and relaxation, especially if it is the only pet in the household.

  • Cats present their own medical challenges and unique healthcare issues, so the Cat Friendly Practice program provides guidance to the veterinary healthcare team to address those needs.

  • Veterinarians and veterinary healthcare teams who dedicate themselves to see only cats place a high value on their feline patients’ distinct needs. They are especially interested in delivering medical care to cats in ways that help the cat (and its human family members) experience as little stress as possible.

  • Many cat owners worry that making their cats stay inside is unnatural and deprives them of their need to roam, explore, and meet other cats. However, in our modern world, the risks of an outdoor life are far greater than the benefits. This handout answers some of the questions you may have about letting your cat spend time outdoors.

  • Periodontal disease is the most common problem affecting cats of all age groups. The very best way to prevent periodontal disease is daily dental home care. However, it is useful to add in effective, evidence-based dental food to provide appropriate daily plaque control.

  • Online shopping for convenience and great prices has quickly become the new normal in today’s consumerism society. Although technology may help us be savvy shoppers, it’s still good to be cautious about what you purchase online, especially when it comes to your pet’s medications.

  • The aristocratic but playfully affectionate Cavalier King Charles Spaniel looks like he leapt straight out of a Renaissance painting. Sweet and docile, cuddly and adaptable, Cavaliers can be anything you want them to be.

  • Brushing Teeth in Cats

    Enseñar a su gato a aceptar que se cepille los dientes puede llevar cierto entrenamiento, pero se convertirá en algo sencillo una vez se acostumbre al proceso. El lavado de dientes diario es lo ideal, pero si sus horarios no le permiten hacerlo cada día, un cepillado de dos veces al día es aceptable.

  • Brushing Teeth in Dogs

    ¿Por qué debería cepillar los dientes a mi perro? Se estima que alrededor de 2/3 de los perros con una media de tres años tienen periodontitis, una inflamación o infección del tejido alrededor del diente. La enfermedad periodontal empieza con una gingivitis y progresa hasta afectar a la raíz del diente. Si no se trata a tiempo, la enfermedad periodontal puede llevar a una pérdida del diente.
