Cat owners know that cats are not like other pets. Cats have personalities and needs that are all their own. Sometimes these special needs can create unique challenges. This is why the cat veterinarian that you choose must be well equipped to meet those needs and challenges. At MountainView Veterinary Hospital, we go the extra mile to ensure that cats and their owners in Rockaway, NJ, are comfortable and well taken care of when they are in our office.
What It Means To Be Certified Feline Friendly
Meeting the needs of felines and their owners requires special preparation. The American Association of Feline Practitioners has established guidelines for what veterinarian clinics should have in place to best meet the needs of felines and their owners. MountainView Veterinary Hospital is proud to be a certified Feline Friendly Practice. This means that our doctors and team members are required to keep up with continuing education regarding meeting the needs of felines. To address the unique health problems that felines face, special attention has been given to our training and practices.
Our veterinary team members that have obtained this designation are capable of adhering to extensive training in cat behavior, behavior modification, and health and wellness issues. In addition to this, our facility itself must meet special requirements to be deemed a certified Feline Friendly Practice. This includes special attention to our animal hospital waiting rooms and exam rooms. These modifications ensure that your cat will experience a stress-free visit to our office.
Feline Health and Wellness
Cats are often considered low maintenance animals. Because your cat will typically not get into as much trouble as a new puppy would, they can sometimes be easy to ignore. This is further complicated by the fact that cats often prefer to be left alone. However, this can begin to cause problems for your cat's health. If you are not keeping a good watch on your cat’s behavior and health, problems can arise that go undetected.
Regardless of how social or anti-social your cat might be, you must keep tabs on their general health and well-being. This includes monitoring your cat’s ears, teeth, fur, and eating habits.
