Thoughtful;Professional;Qualified;Dignified Dog Care
for Every Stage of Your Furry Family Members’ Life
When you bring your cat to our Palm Harbor Veterinary hospital, both you and they become members of our family.
Our highly trained and professional vet staff will ensure that proper care is taken with your cat for any type of visit; whether it be a standard Wellness exam or otherwise.
As your cat grows, an annual exam is the best way to monitor his health. During this exam, we will check for the warning signs of illness and confirm vaccinations are up to date.
Veterinary Cat Care
Supports Long-Term Health
When your feline friend enters his or her golden years, the pet wellness exam should occur every six months.
Dr. Murphy and his trained vet staff will monitor your cat for signs of illness and chronic health problems, such as Feline Gingivitis and Renal Failure. For some older cats, dietary supplements can help ease the pain and provide energy. Proactive intervention is the best way to keep your cat healthy and active.
However, if a time comes when your cat suffers from a debilitating injury or becomes ravaged by disease, special care and action must be taken for your beloved pet to retain a high quality of life. Should surgery be necessary, our Palm Harbor vet staff will take extra special care to ensure the best for you and your cat.
Has Your Cat Stopped Grooming?
Pain or illness will cause a cat to lose interest in grooming. Aging cats may suffer from arthritis, which makes it painful for them to maneuver their bodies for cleaning; the simple act of grooming may also tire them out. Overweight cats have a hard time reaching the areas they want to clean, and are frustrated by their attempts.
Even indoor cats can get worms.
Roundworm is one of the most widespread forms, contracted from eating infected insects, rodents or birds or by contact with contaminated soil. Roundworms invade a cat’s intestines, and can migrate to his bloodstream and organs.
Our veterinarian will exam your feline friend and prescribe appropriate medication for the treatment of roundworm or tapeworm. Cleanliness, flea control and cleaning your dirty feet will help fight worms.
