Cat Deworming

Cat Deworming

All cats are at risk of being infected with worms, however well cared for they are. Many cats will have internal parasites at some stage in their life. Worms can cause potential health problems for your feline friend if left untreated. Some of these may include vomiting, diarrhea and weight loss.

There are many different types of cat worms. Tapeworms, roundworms and hookworms are the most common of these pesky creatures. While all of these worms could affect your cat’s health, the good news is they can be treated and controlled quite easily. Deworming your cat will not prevent them from getting worms, so your feline friend may become infested shortly after treatment. Deworming on a regular basis, monthly, or bi-monthly will help ensure your cat remains healthy. Cats that live or play outdoors will be required to be dewormed more frequently than an indoor cat, but your veterinarian will be able to recommend a prevention plan that is right for your cat. Most of these worms are relatively harmless to people, with that being said speaking to your veterinarian and family physician will help keep you and your family protected. Deworming medications are very safe and effective for your cat. Side effects from deworming are generally uncommon but could be salivating, vomiting or diarrhea.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403.527.2829. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, continuing with some surgeries, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Saturday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, & closed on Sundays

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
