Dr. Yoon getting prepared for surgery
Some of the most common questions cat owners have for us at the Kennedy Heights Animal and Bird Hospital in Surrey, BC pertain to: cat flea treatment, feline vomiting, and renal failure in cats. We offer cat surgeries when needed, and wellness programs as preventive health measures to keep your cat healthy and happy.
No cat owner wants to see his pet in pain, but no matter how well you take care of your cat, accidents and illnesses may still befall them. Surgical procedures are sometimes needed, and we make sure your cat is given loving care as well as high quality medical treatment.
Spaying, Neutering and Surgical Procedures
1. Spaying and neutering are the most common surgical procedures performed on cats. These surgeries involve removal of reproductive organs to prevent cat overpopulation, reduce sexual behaviour and aggression, and minimize the risk of health problems. These procedures are usually conducted at five to six months of age.
2. Other than these two surgeries, there are two others that are often conducted – soft tissue surgery and orthopedic surgery. Surgeries are classified as either soft tissue surgery (spays and neuters are soft tissue surgeries) orthopedic surgery.
3. We also insert cat microchips to ensure easy identification if your pet is lost. This procedure involves inserting a microchip the size of a grain of rice with a personal ID number on it just under the skin of your pet. The procedure does not require any sedation and is no more painful than getting a vaccination
Wellness Programs Ensure Your Pet Enjoys Optimum Health
Posing pretty for her first annual wellness visit with the Doctor!
A good wellness program includes such things as cat flea treatment, diagnosis of underlying causes of feline vomiting, and extends to such serious concerns as a diagnosis of renal failure. A wellness program can start shortly after a kitten is born. You can bring your kitten his first visit when he is six to eight weeks old.
1. We conduct a full physical examination.
2. For adult cats under the age of nine, an annual physical examination is recommended.
3. For senior cats, a more thorough wellness program is necessary.
We’ll help you keep your pet cat – from kitten to elderly cat – happy and in the best of health. Learn more about our surgeries and wellness programs for your cat by visiting our hospital at 8614 120th Street, Surrey, BC V3W 3N6; or by calling (604) 591-5304.
