We value your pet’s health. Addressing health concerns before they become serious health risks is the basis behind wellness exams. Many conditions that may occur during the normal aging process can be diagnosed early through physical examinations and routine laboratory testing. We recommend young cats be seen at least one time per year and older cats be seen at least every six months.

Wellness Exams and consultations.
Supportive care such as subcutaneous fluid therapy, vitamin injections, antibiotic therapy, and medications for chronic illness.
Blood pressure monitoring.

*If a blood workup, urinalysis, or x-rays are required, I may need to send you and your cat to a full-service veterinary clinic. It is sometimes difficult to obtain these samples during a housecall visit.

Acupuncture is an approved form of therapy by the American Veterinary Medical Association. It is safe and does not pose the harmful side effects seen with some western drug therapies. It can be used as a primary form of therapy or as a beneficial adjunct to western medicine. It has many efficacies such as immune modulation, chronic kidney support, treating osteoarthritis, and pain relief.
Homeopathy, flower essences, and Reiki address the body’s ability to heal itself at an energetic level. Nutrition, exercise, security, and love also play an important part in healing.
