At Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital, we offer all of the medical services that your cat may need throughout his or her lifetime. Regardless of your cat’s age or existing medical conditions, we can provide advanced veterinary care to give you peace of mind that your cat will enjoy a long and healthy life!
We are strong promoters of wellness care for cats. Annual or bi-annual wellness exams (depending upon the age and health of your cat) allow our veterinarians to examine your cat so that we may tailor a wellness health care plan specifically for your cat or detect any health conditions early.
Getting your Cat to Visit Us
So your cat is safe when travelling, please use a carrier to transport your cat. The best type of cat carrier is the inexpensive hard-sided carriers that open from the top and from the front. An easily opened top allows a cat which is fearful, anxious or in pain to be gently lifted from the carrier. Please avoid a carrier that requires a cat to be pulled from the carrier or dumped out for an exam. It should be easy for you to carry and should be secured in the car to keep your cat safe. Please allow enough time to get your cat into the carrier and arrive at the appointment on schedule.
While waiting in our waiting area, please keep your cat in the carrier, but be sure to maintain visual and spoken connection with your cat. Keeping calm and speaking in soft tones can help your cat remain calm, too. Please make use of our cat only waiting area to minimize contact with dogs entering the hospital.
You can help your cat become comfortable with his or her carrier by placing it in a room where your cat spends a lot of time, placing familiar soft bedding inside and by placing treats, catnip or toys inside the carrier. It may take days or weeks for your cat to trust the carrier. Reward your cat’s desired behaviors.
