A day dedicated entirely to our quieter, and often more sensitive, companion cats! We recognize that car travel is extremely anxiety-provoking, followed by arrival at a foreign place with scary smells, loud noises, and oftentimes, a novel species (dogs!), which compounds the trauma. In the veterinary world, it is often said that “cats are not small dogs”. Physiologically and behaviorally, they are distinct from dogs in countless ways. They can be masterful in hiding their pain and illness, especially when running on adrenaline during a veterinary visit. Thus, anything and everything we can do to minimize this stress is of critical importance to facilitating a thorough and meaningful exam. With their exquisitely fine-tuned senses, a day in which the hospital is only theirs will be incredibly helpful. Beyond this, we will be taking additional steps to enhance the comfort of their visits:
Additionally, Dr. Hazzard has seven years of feline-dedicated practice within cat hospitals in Massachusetts, Maine, and Colorado. She also completed 300 credit hours of feline-dedicated graduate coursework in feline internal medicine via the University of Sydney, Australia.
The premier Whisker Wednesday launches January 20th, so please call or write to schedule for this special day!
We hope you are as excited about this cat hospital within a small animal hospital as we are! The other four days a week, of course, remain open to our canine companions as usual. They are adored and loved as much as always!! Should you have a canine emergency on a Whisker Wednesday, please call to see if we can make an exception or advise on the best course of action.
