Cats Are Special

Are you owned by a feline companion? Heartwood Animal Hospital knows that your cat is a very special creature and we are committed to providing customized care specifically designed for these unique friends.

How Are Cats Treated at Heartwood Animal Hospital?

To ensure that your companion feels calm and respected at Heartwood Animal Hospital, we utilize calming techniques in conjunction with dimmer lights and quieter treatment areas for our feline friends. Our staff undergoes cat handling training to ensure they are equipped to provide exactly the level of care and attention that your pet needs in order to feel comfortable at our animal hospital. As an extra step of tender care, we have a separate cat waiting area and separate cat exam rooms.

Even our cat boarding facilities are separate from the dog side. We keep this area climate controlled with relaxing music playing at all times.

When Your Feline Friend Needs Veterinary Care

The Heartwood Animal Hospital team understands that our feline friends are special and we recommend that all cat owners take extra precautions with their best friends. Cats are known for their tendency to hide their feelings when things are wrong, making every effort to hide signs of weakness. For this reason, regular check-ups are so important for our feline friends! We use these annual wellness visits to examine your cat from nose to tail, and we often utilize advanced diagnostics to check for underlying conditions that may not be visible.

Did you know that cats can be diabetic? Did you know your cat could be suffering from kidney disease right now? Did you also know that they can have thyroid problems as they age? We can perform lab work to diagnose and treat these conditions.

We can customize vaccines for each cat based on their home, if they are outside or inside cats, and their age.

When you are choosing a cat veterinarian, it is so important to look for a team that is aware of the special needs of felines and makes every effort to provide care that is customized for our feline friends. We promise you will receive that and more from the veterinary team at Heartwood Animal Hospital. If you have questions about the specific needs of your feline friend, please contact us and we’ll be happy to assist you!
