Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate, or prevent, serious health problems.
We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your cat's complete health care needs. We see many advanced cases for second opinion examinations.
Radiology Services: Our on-site X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders.
Dentistry: Our advanced dental services include a complete oral health examination under anesthesia with full charting, cleaning, polishing, periodontal treatment, dental X-rays, tooth extractions, some oral surgery, fracture repairs and diagnostic biopsies.
Permanent identification: Microchip implantation is offered at our clinic. This can be done in a routine outpatient appointment for most cats and includes a short-acting mild pain medication injection. The implantation is very fast and now involves an even smaller chip and needle. It is ideal to consider microchipping with any anesthetic for the "no sting" option. We highly recommend having such permanent identification for your cat as well as a visible collar with ID.
Pharmacy: We maintain an extensive inventory of pharmaceuticals, supplements, toys, Chinese and Western herbal remedies, flea control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your cat. We also carry a full line of prescription diets as well as life stage diets.
Strategic Deworming Programs: We develop deworming programs that help protect both you and your pet. It is now recommended to deworm your pets on a regular basis, whether indoors or out, as they can get roundworms from eating flies and tapeworms from eating fleas, even if they don't hunt. Some parasites are contagious to you as well and CAPC parasite control guidelines now recommends cat deworming as protection for pet owners.
Dietary Counselling: We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, weight loss and specific diseases (for example - diabetes, kidney disease, arthritis). Supplements may also play a role in aiding recovery from illness or prevention of progression, and this is covered extensively in the routine or followup appointments.
Ultrasound Examinations: We work closely with a board-certified Radiologist in London, who provides comprehensive ultrasound exams. We can also refer to the Ontario Veterinary College or specialist centers near Toronto if needed.
In addition to the above services, we offer a closely supervised hospitalization area, an isolation area and comfortable cages for hospitalized cats that include a separate sleeping/eating and litter-box area with comfy fleeces for bedding.
Our waiting room is cat-exclusive (no pesky dogs) and we have a raised "cat-waiting" area in the reception. We also aim to get cats into the exam room quicky, so they don't have to watch other cats arrive and they can acclimatize to being in the clinic before their appointment. We have 2 examination rooms to accomodate the incoming cat as well as to allow our technicians to go over any discharge instructions or medication instructions on discharge, without being in the busy reception area.
