Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
We all like to feed our pets. It brings us joy to provide them with good quality food and treats. A few extra calories a day can sometimes lead to excess weight gain for our feline family members. We are here to help you monitor and judge the correct calorie intake to lose or maintain weight for your cat. There is a lot of false information out there about feline nutrition. We encourage you to ask one of our knowledgeable veterinarians or a Registered Veterinary Technician about a safe, gradual weight-loss program. Cats have very special nutritional requirements that should be managed by a professional.
If you think your cat has gained even a little excess weight, we encourage you to have their body condition assessed by a veterinarian. Typically, this is something we check during any type of physical examination. We use a body condition score system that determines the percentage of body fat and how much weight-loss is required for your cat.
Our Weight-Loss Counselling and Management Program:
Our registered veterinary technicians will develop a weight loss plan tailored to your cat’s nutrition and weight loss requirements. Cats have very special nutritional requirements and it is very important to work with a professional while managing their weight-loss. Using one of our prescription diets, regular weigh-ins, and customized progress reports, we will help you correct your pet’s state of health. You’ll be amazed at how different your pet looks and acts as the weight comes off in a safe, medically supervised way. Once they have reached their target weight, a weight maintenance plan will be put in place to keep them feeling great. This service is FREE for our clients.
From August 31st to October 3rd, we are running a special promotion for the well-being of our feline patients. We understand that bringing your cat to see the vet can be a bit stressful for some pets and their people too. If you find this process challenging, give us a call at 416.537.3128 to speak with one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians for helpful tips on fear-free vet visits for cats.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
