Feline Aggression
Many people have experienced stinging cat scratches or the shocking pain of a deep cat bite. Most attacks occur under circumstances that are likely to induce an aggressive response, and theoretically should be easy to avoid. When your cat is afraid, feeling vulnerable, or is in pain, acting aggressively serves as a defense mechanism. But one can become a victim in unexpected ways as well.

Feline Bronchopulmonary Disease
The respiratory system functions to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide during respiration (breathing). The respiratory tract consists of the upper (nose and nasal passages) and lower airways (trachea, bronchi and lungs).

Feline Dental Disease
A young and healthy cat can develop an oral disease even when you are providing the the best possible care. Tooth brushing, enzyme-containing treats, and oral rinses are good protection against plaque, tartar, and some forms of gingivitis. However, two common dental disorders we see in cats have no proven cause, meaning efforts at prevention are not as helpful and extractions become necessary.

Feline Diabetes
Diabetes mellitus is an endocrine disease in which the blood sugar level rises because of failure of insulin to control it.

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease
Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) is a generalized condition that affects the bladder or urethra of cats.

Flea Allergy Dermatitis
Flea allergy dermatitis (FAD) is the most common allergy that affects cats. It occurs when a cat develops hypersensitivity to proteins (allergens) in flea saliva, which is injected into the cat’s skin during a flea bite.

Flea Control for Cats
It is estimated that the fleas an owner sees on the pet represents 1-5% of the fleas in the environment. That means that 95-99% of the fleas in a home are NOT on the pet, but in the carpeting, bedding, and upholstery.

Food Allergies
​Food allergies, or food hypersensitivities, are caused by a hypersensitivity to a component (allergen) within the diet.

Heart Murmurs
A cat’s heart has four chambers. Unoxygenated blood returning from the body enters the heart in the right atrium and passes through the tricuspid valve on its way to the right ventricle.
