Cat Health Services and Treatments
We Support Every Stage Of Your Cat’s Life
At Dalton Animal Care we specialize in the following cat health services for cats of all ages, breeds and circumstances:
As your feline friend grows, they will move through six distinct stages of life:
- Kitten: 0-6 months
- Junior: 7 months – 2 years
- Prime: 3 – 6 years
- Mature: 7 – 10 years
- Senior: 11 – 14 years
- Geriatric: 15+ years
Naturally, as a cat grows and progresses through life, it will undergo physiological changes and face a variety of life events that will require care and attention. From kitten care to geriatric cat medicine, consistent preventive care can make all the difference in the quality of life of your cat. Ultimately your cat’s health will impact your relationship with them.
Cats are very good at hiding illness. In fact, most cats will simply become less active and less interactive when very ill. Any signs of illness that a cat may show will be very subtle. Any change in their behavior should warrant a consideration that they may be ill. Many clients will return from work to find that their cat simply does not greet them at the door as usual. This may be an indication that your cat is ill. Because the signs of cat illness are so subtle, if you should notice any obvious changes in behavior please call our office.
Emergency Cat Care
Typically cats don’t RSVP for a veterinary emergency. Therefore, our office hours are:
- Surgery check-in: 7:30 am
- Monday – Friday: 8am – 6pm
- Saturday: 8am – 12:00pm
- Sunday: Closed
If you happen to call after our regular hours, we will refer you to a 24 hour emergency clinic nearby.
