12 Feb Dentistry

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population. In spite of these disturbing facts, many cat owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their cat’s health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your cat’s...

Boarding

12 Feb Boarding

Your Cat's Home Away from Home At the Cat Clinic, we offer a range of boarding options, from our very popular cat rooms to traditional cage boarding and cage suite boarding (2 connecting cages). The cat rooms are individual, spacious non-cage boarding rooms with multilevel shelves, perches, spelled terrariums, and hand-painted murals. They are individually air supplied and exhausted out of the building. All the cage surfaces are Formica, and not stainless steel (which cats hate). We can accommodate any special requirements your cat may have, including medical or geriatric boarding. Our patients are always fed according to owner instructions and clean,...

07 Feb Nutrition

The Cat Clinic offers nutritional counseling for cat owners in Danbury, CT, and surrounding communities. Nutritional counseling is beneficial for all cats, especially as they age and their metabolism slows. By managing your cat's diet appropriately, significant health problems such as obesity can be avoided. Obesity is a common problem among cats, as it can be easy to over-feed a cat that knows how to beg. This can be a serious problem for cats, and being overweight can adversely affect your cat's longevity. Proper diet and exercise can prevent or resolve obesity.

07 Feb Senior Care

Once your cat reaches seven years of age, we recommend scheduling wellness exams twice per year. Preventative medicine is important when our pets are young, but as our pets age, and become prone to certain disease processes, bi-annual exams and blood work become even more important. Bi-annual exams and simple blood work to check liver and kidney values, along with thyroid function, have the potential to alert us to early changes that may give us important information about your cat's health. We understand the changes your cat will experience as they become older, and we also know the importance of keeping...
