Happy May! We hope everyone, human and feline alike, is staying safe and healthy this month. With all the changes happening in the world due to COVID-19, we felt it was important to talk about vaccinations and why they are essential to keeping your cat protected, healthy, and happy.
Owning a cat is one of life’s greatest pleasures, but with it can come some unique challenges. If your cat constantly scratches, whether it’s you, your furniture, rugs, or walls, you may have considered declawing them.
The safety of our clients and team is of the utmost importance. As an increased safety measure, TLC Cat Clinic will be moving appointments to carside service so we can remain open to treat your companions.
At TLC Cat Clinic, the health and safety of both you and your feline friend are our top priority. With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, we want our clients to know that we have taken the following precautions to keep everyone safe and to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
We discuss how important regular visits, preventatives, and dental care are to your feline friend – bloodwork is no exception. Cats don’t always show that they’re sick, so running annual blood tests (or as needed) is a critical component in veterinary care because it helps us look at the overall health of your pet.
Happy February! It’s amazing how quickly January flew by. Did you know February is National Pet Dental Health Month? Yes, even your feline friend needs dental care! The American Veterinary Dental Society estimates 70% of cats have some form of dental disease by the age of three.
Happy New Year! We hope that 2020 will be filled with prosperity, good health, love, and laughter for you and yours. The first of the year brings on many reminders – resolutions, preparing for tax season, and setting up your feline’s annual appointment.
In recent radio jingles, TV commercials, and print ads, you may have started to notice a trend emerging in all of them. Words like “grain-free” and “raw diets” are gaining momentum as popular diets for cats and dogs, and many of our clients have been asking about these as diet options for their feline family members.
VCPR, also known as Veterinarian-Client-Patient Relationship, is a critical component to veterinary medicine. It exists when we know your pet well enough to be able to diagnose and treat any condition your pet may develop. It requires us to keep written record of your pet’s medical care, allows us to advise you on the risks and benefits of treatment options, oversee the treatment and care of your pet, and more. It is essentially the bedrock of providing quality care for every patient.
