We now offer laser therapy treatment for our patients. Using a deep-penetrating light, we can help your pet experience the relief of pain through the release of endorphins. The injured cells are stimulated to heal at a faster rate. Here are some conditions that we can treat with laser therapy:
- Degenerative Joint Disease
- Lick Granulomas
- Dermatological Conditions
We know your cat is an important part of your family, so we work hard to provide the best Feline Veterinary Care. To keep your cat as healthy as possible, we recommend the following:
Nutrition: Just as in people, good nutrition for your pet translates to good health. In addition, premium foods are more digestible and result in less stool volume. We recommend that you feed your cat a high quality diet such as Hill’s Science Diet.
Fresh, Clean Water: As with humans, water consumption is very important for a healthy body. Your cat needs access to plenty of fresh, clean water at all times.
Litter Box: Scoop your cat’s litter box at least every other day and completely change out the litter at least once a week. This will help control the build up of bacteria in the box and keep your cat from seeking out other places to urinate and defecate.
Comprehensive Physical Examinations: Since pets age 5-7 times faster than we humans do, it can be estimated that a yearly physical exam is the equivalent to one exam every 5-7 years in humans. A visit to Central Texas Animal Hospital for an annual physical exam includes a detailed medical history along with a “nose to tail” physical examination. Once your cat is a “senior,” (about 7 years old) it is recommended that he come to see us at least twice a year. We also recommend an annual Fecal Parasite Screen to rule out or treat intestinal parasites, some of which can be contagious to humans.
