Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local medical issues that can impact your pet's health and which require your attention over the entire year. Heartworm disease is a blood parasite that is transmitted by mosquitoes and affects both cats and dogs alike. In our region, which has mild winters, mosquitoes have the potential to transmit the disease to your pet year-round. Fortunately, we have highly effective preventative medicine that can protect your pets from this potentially deadly infection. In addition, both indoor and outdoor pets can contract a variety of intestinal parasites year-round, including hookworm, roundworm, giardia and tapeworms. Finally, contrary to what you would expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies, the signs of which include scratching, redness in the ears, and "scaly" or red skin.
The American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) represents practitioners in the veterinary community who are passionate about the care of cats and supports its members in improving the health and welfare of feline patients. With a reputation as a leader in the field of feline medicine, the AAFP helps veterinary practices establish a feline-friendly environment that reduces stress for cats during veterinary visits.
The Cat Friendly Practice® program is a leading movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. This global initiative is designed to elevate care for cats by assisting practices in developing calming, cat-friendly environments and reducing stress for felines before, during, and after their veterinary visit.
We harness the scale and strength of our global network while acknowledging each individual's contribution. We work locally to improve the lives of all who interact with our brand.
