Enjoy convenient, comprehensive, Certified Fear Free veterinary care in the comfort of Sanford or Southern Pines area North Carolina home!
Our medical team provides preventive care, chronic disease management, and behavioral medicine.
Prevention is the key for your cat to having a long, happy, healthy relationship with you. During each exam, your veterinary team evaluates and gives recommendations for your furry companion’s physical, emotional, nutritional, environmental, and relational health. We have modern science-based vaccine protocols so your cats are protected against disease without over-vaccination. We give you a copy of your cat’s complete medical report at each visit. Your pet’s history is also available on the online portal.
Chronic Disease Management
Certain conditions can’t be cured, but they can be managed so your cat is comfortable and healthy for as long as possible. We are highly experienced in treating arthritis, allergies, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, thyroid disease, and more. Our team reviews the latest literature and incorporates the best protocols into the practice to optimize your furbaby’s quality of life. We maintain great relationships with local and international specialists in every field so your cat always receives the best care possible.
While we are not specialists, our behavior team has completed hundreds of hours of education and training and restored the emotional health and relationships of numerous cats and their families. Our team treats all kinds of behavior problems- inter-cat aggression, inappropriate elimination, and more. Our multistep approach is:
Diagnose and treat the underlying cause of the behavior problem, whether it is medical, emotional, environmental, or a combination of factors. We find that treating painful medical problems often resolves the behavior issue.
Ensure the patient has the necessary resources to express their natural behaviors. For example, cats need to hunt, and if they aren’t given appropriate toys, they may hunt you instead!
Discuss goals, expectations, and a reasonable treatment plan with your family and our entire behavior team.
Manage the situation through avoidance if possible, and other strategies to reduce the frequency of the problem behavior.
Treat fear, anxiety, and stress through desensitization and counterconditioning using positive reinforcement and sometimes anti-anxiety medications.
By working together, we can dramatically reduce or even eliminate the problem behavior.
