Cats are not small dogs! The doctors and staff of Tchefuncte Animal Hospital understand that our feline patients have unique needs apart from their canine counterparts. We incorporate Feliway products and promote passive/minimal restraint techniques when handling our feline friends. Other specific methods we often implement are small gauge butterfly catheter in the rear limb for less-traumatic blood draws, anxiolytics specifically tailored to reducing nervousness in cats, separate housing away from dogs, low volume 1/2cc Boheringer FeLV+FVRCP vaccines with longer duration of immunity than the standard 1cc doses, and last but not least, caring staff members who love cats!
Tchefuncte Animal Hospital also utilizes a separate, isolated boarding area for our feline friends. This enclosure is up front far away from the dog boarding area for peace and quiet. The full length glass door allows curious cats to see ouside and for us to keep an eye from a distance. The security of the area also allows for free range playtime!
