Depending on your cat’s lifestyle, deworming may be a monthly routine.
What are some types of parasites found in cats?
Internal parasites that can be found in cats are ringworm, hookworm, tapeworm, roundworm, coccidia, and giardia. These parasites can be picked up on microscope.
If my cat has worms, what symptoms should I look for?
In some cases, there are little to no symptoms. Symptoms may include a pot belly, difficulty gaining weight, and visible worms in bowel movements.
Are worms dangerous to humans?
Certain parasites can affect humans negatively. Come chat with our seasoned professionals on how to keep you and your pets protected.
What is the deworming schedule?
Through conversation with your veterinarian, you can decide a deworming schedule that works best for your cat.
Are there any side effects from deworming medication?
At Companion Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on offering safe deworming options for you. It is not uncommon for your pet to have some gut upsets after taking a dose; however, if a product doesn’t sit well with your pet, we have plenty of other options.
We love Halloween! From the cool and creative costumes, trick-or-treating, parties, and (let's be honest) the candy, Halloween can be a fun time for everyone. But, there are many hazards that our pets face during these fall festivities.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 5, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
