The Cat Doctor & Friends
A common misconception among cat lovers is the assumption that cats who spend their time indoors don't need veterinary care "unless they are sick". Cats who don't come in for annual wellness exams may develop dental disease (since they won't brush their teeth) which can lead to heart, liver or kidney disease. A little preventative care can go a long way. Vaccinations are especially important for kittens, but even indoor cats will need occasional vaccine "boosters" during their adult lives.
Instead of the usual 15 minute appointment, Dr. Tracy McFarland, Dr. Melissa Waller and Dr. Megan Thomas enjoy the luxury of half-hour appointments. Longer appointments allow time spent discussing your nutritional and behavioral concerns in addition to wellness and medical care, surgical or dental diagnosis and treatment. The Cat Doctor & Friends has six comfortable exam rooms, including a "Zen" room where Dr. McFarland, a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, performs acupuncture to relieve chronic pain and improve nerve function.
