Despite the fact that cat ownership is on the rise, fewer cat owners are bringing these beloved pets for regular veterinary care. This is mainly due to the fact that many cats are very frightened and easily stressed by coming to the clinic. At Glen Erin Animal Hospital and Meadowvale Animal Clinic, we understand this and have gone to great lengths to provide a cat friendly environment for your cats. The staff members have had special training in handling cats and are knowledgeable in discussing all of your concerns.
At the Glen Erin Animal Hospital location, we have constructed a separate cat-only exam room, day hospitalization and boarding facility (need to have a link to photos). All rooms feature natural light and have been designed with the feline perspective in mind.
All cat appointments are 30 minutes. We encourage your cat to arrive early in order to have extra time to acclimatize to the room, which lowers stress levels. Included in the appointment is a thorough physical examination, which includes a complimentary blood pressure check.
As cats become nervous when moved to a new setting, whenever possible, all outpatient procedures including vaccinations, medication and blood draws can be done in the exam room with you present.
