Feline Health Care

At North Shore Family Pet Hospital, our feline care is designed to provide comprehensive long-term, life-stage veterinary care for your cat, from kittenhood through his or her senior years. We are a Cat Friendly Practice and have embraced the higher standards of care needed to create a cat-friendly environment within our hospital. A cat friendly hospital means less stress to both you and your cat when visiting our hospital.

As advocates of preventative health care, we recommend that we see your cat at least annually for a comprehensive wellness exam. We will provide tailored vaccination schedules and helpful pointers on home care that will keep your cat healthy, happy, and protected against preventable illnesses.

Our feline care includes:

  • Wellness exams designed to maintain your cat’s good health, body condition and oral health
  • Health certificates, both domestic and international
  • Diagnostic testing equipment should our veterinarians need additional information to diagnose your cat’s illness
  • Professional dental care
  • Weight and nutritional needs assessment
  • Vaccine programs based on your cat’s lifestyle, including FVRCP, FELV, Rabies
  • Feline Leukemia/immunodeficiency virus testing
  • Internal parasite testing and prevention
  • Microchipping so your cat can return home if he or she is ever lost
  • Specialized care for your senior cat, including bi-annual wellness exams, to detect changing health conditions early
  • General medicine services and a collaborative approach to diagnosing and managing chronic diseases such as diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney and liver disorders
  • Dermatology care for conditions such as allergies and chronic ear infections
  • Prescription foods for medical conditions

For your convenience, 'drop-off' appointments are available if you are unable to schedule a regular appointment. Typically we ask you to bring your cat in the morning. Dr. Bannow, Dr. Shechter, or Dr. Gardner will do an exam and any necessary tests during the day. When you arrive at the hospital, a veterinary technician will go over your concerns and ask pertinent medical questions, including vaccination history. Please allow time for this discussion when you drop off your cat. Please bring a stool sample if requested. When we have completed our examination, we will call you to go over the diagnosis and discharge instructions.
