Have We Seen Your Cat Lately?

Clarke County cat owners - Your cats need annual veterinary care!



Cat Myths:




  • Cats do not need veterinary care like dogs

  • Cats are naturally healthier with fewer problems than dogs

  • Feline health problems come from outside and don’t affect indoor cats

  • Cats will display visible signs of illness or you will know if they are sick



Cats are no more or less healthy than dogs and are notorious for hiding illness. You might not know your cat is sick until the illness has become critical and requires more extensive treatment.



To best serve your cat – we recommend an annual exam with vaccinations & parasite testing and prevention. For the best preventative care as your cat ages, we recommend annual blood tests to diagnose diabetes, kidney, liver, thyroid, renal and heart disease before they become advanced and regular dental cleanings.



All cats, even indoor cats, are susceptible to health conditions and parasites. Diagnosing illness through an examination and through laboratory tests & beginning treatment early can save your cat suffering later if the disease has progressed.  Read more about common cat illnesses…



What are some subtle signs your cat might be ill?




  • Inappropriate elimination outside the litter box

  • Change in food/water consumption

  • Change in activity/interaction

  • Lack of self-grooming

  • Bad breath

  • Weight loss or gain (overweight cats have higher chance of developing diabetes)

  • Do not assume behavior or physical changes are just “old age”.  Many are medical problems that can be treated if caught early



We realize coming to the vet can be stressful.   Here are some tips to ease that stress:



Before Your Appointment at Roseville Vet Clinic




  • Top-loading carriers make it easier to place your cat inside – those with top and side opening have additional versatility

  • Bring the carrier out several days prior and place a familiar blanket, treats and toys inside the carrier

  • Take frequent short car rides to places other than coming to see us

  • Practice regular care such as brushing, nail trimming and teeth brushing and touching your cat’s face, ears, feet and tail at home

  • We have products such as Feliway available to calm stress – stop in and purchase before their appointment or order from Roseville Vet Clinic’s online store



Coming to Roseville Vet Clinic & At the Vet Appointment




  • Use Feliway diffuser, sprays or wipes at least 15 minutes before introducing cat to the carrier –download Feliway tip sheet on how to use Feliway to reduce cat stress

  • Come to our vet clinic for visits that don’t involve exams or procedures (such as weighing the cat) to create positive associations or just stop by for treats

  • Cats travel best on an empty stomach

  • Place a towel or blanket over the carrier when driving

  • Reinforce your cat’s positive associations with the carrier using calm praise

  • Let the cat walk out or gently remove from the carrier with calm voices and movements

  • Speak softly, because if you remain calm, chances are your cat will too

  • After each successful car trip and vet visit, reward your pet with positive attention and treats



Call 837-1334 or request online your cat’s appointment.
