At Berkeley Veterinary Center, We Love Cats
Treating cats is not the same as treating dogs, and we pride ourselves on having a special skill and sensitivity when working with cat patients. Cats visiting our veterinary center are put on a wellness plan that's just right for them. In addition to providing a complete and comprehensive checkup each time your cat comes to see us, we will also make sure vaccinations are up to date, flea prevention is working, and your cat's dietary needs are being met.
When Should I Bring My Cat to the Vet?
Aside from scheduled wellness exams, sometimes cats have medical issues that need to be addressed right away. But, it can be hard to know when a cat is in distress because they are very good at hiding the symptoms. Here are a few guidelines to help you know when it's time to schedule an appointment:
- Sleeping more than usual or in an unusual location
- Vocalizing more or less than usual
- Less active than normal
- Eating more or less than normal
- Acting unusual, including hiding, clingy, or agitated
- Urinating outside of litter box or with increased frequency
- Having diarrhea or constipation
- More sensitive or tender to being touched in any specific area
- Any lameness or reduction in ability to jump
If you notice any of the above symptoms in your cat, please contact us to schedule an appointment right away.
