Philadelphia Vet For Your Cat's Health

Image
As your pet ages, your veterinarian will want to see your cat every six months. Cats age severely quickly in the later years of their life and aging changes can develop with alarming speed. Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease of the joints and we’re just learning how common it is in cats as they live longer and receive more veterinary care than ever before. It can be identified on a physical examination with or without radiographs (X-rays), depending on the severity of the changes. This progressive condition can also be treated and lead to a happier, more energetic feline with minimal discomfort as they age.

Fleas have been around for over 60 million years, so I don’t think they are going anywhere anytime soon.  Fortunately, there are many Flea/Tick Preventatives that can help prevent your pet from getting flea infections. For more information on which products are safe and effective for your pet, please schedule an appointment with a member of our veterinary hospital who can spend the time to go over flea prevention in more detail.

Pet Safety With Microchipping Philadelphia Veterinary Hospital

Image
A Microchip is only about the size of a grain of rice, and yet it can provide a permanent and capable means of identification for your pet. The procedure for microchip insertion is safe, swift, simple, low-stress, virtually painless, and highly effective. A chip containing an ID number is injected into the back of the neck between your pet’s shoulder blades, into the tissues beneath the skin, by means of a hypodermic needle. Your pet experiences no more pain or discomfort than you would in a simple vaccination, so anesthesia is not a necessity for this procedure. An ID number can be read by a scanner, which most veterinary hospitals, animal control bureaus, SPCA’s, and other organizations likely to receive stray animals routinely use to scan cats and dogs whose owners are unknown.

Philadelphia Kennel Cough Veterinary Hospital

It is extremely important to note that to the non-trained veterinarian, many other more concerning diseases may look like Kennel Cough. Among them are canine influenza, pneumonia, heart disease, and even certain types of cancer. If misdiagnosed and left untreated, these diseases can be serious and even fatal.
