At Cats Limited Veterinary Hospital, P.C, we offer a variety of services to care for your cat. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your cat, please contact us today.
At Cats Limited we stress the importance of preventative medicine and regular physical exams for your cat. We follow the guidelines set by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP); cats under 7 years of age should receive a wellness exam once a year, and cats seven and over should be seen twice a year. Surprisingly, when cats turn 7 years old they are considered “Seniors”.
We like to take a proactive approach to your cat’s health care rather than waiting for problems to occur. An annual wellness exam will include a thorough physical examination, discussion of vaccine protocols, senior pet care protocols (if a senior kitty), alternative treatments, and nutrition.
As your cat ages, normal changes occur that may or may not present health issues. Early diagnosis during your cat’s Senior Wellness Examination may reveal health issues which, when treated early, tend to increase your cat’s lifespan, are easier to maintain, and are less costly.
Our Veterinarians will do a complete physical exam checking the following:
- Eyes & Ears
- Lungs / Respiration
- Heart rate
- Limbs and joints
- Dental health
- General appearance
We strive to always provide enough time during the exam for your doctor to answer questions and concerns regarding your pet. Cats Limited Veterinary Hospital works as a team, so please feel free to ask any of our staff members any questions you may have, even after your appointment. We have always believed in educating our clients to the best of our ability.
We have been performing laser surgery at Cats Limited since 2007. Our patients are so much more comfortable with laser- we would never go back to traditional “scalpel blade” surgery. By using the laser, we are able to minimize pain, decrease swelling, reduce infections and speed up recovery time, which means less time in the hospital for your kitty.
Laser therapy uses a beam of light that travels at a certain frequency, generating heat so it can penetrate a pet’s tissue.
Laser therapy effectively treats patients who suffer from arthritis or have other soft tissue injuries. It treats both acute and chronic problems like sprains, strains, swelling, and much more. Laser therapy also promotes wound healing quite effectively.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any cat. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
There are certain situations that may require a cat to be hospitalized. We know this can be a stressful time for you and your cat, so we want you to rest assured that your loved one is good hands.
Our digital x-ray allows us to take detailed pictures of your cat giving us more information than a traditional x-ray unit can with no impact on the environment. In addition, all x-rays are transmitted electronically to a board certified veterinary radiologist for evaluation.
Our hospital is equipped with an in-house laboratory. We routinely screen for:
- Feline Leukemia (FeLV)
- Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Urinary tract infections
We also use an outside laboratory for additional tests as needed.
At Cats Limited, we follow the vaccine guidelines developed by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) ( www.catvets.com). Although there are a number of vaccines available for cats, we carry and recommend only three for our patients. All of the vaccines we use are made for cats only, are non-adjuvanted and are made by Merial. We believe they are the safest, most effective vaccines. Click here to read more.

As a cats-only hospital, we’re often asked to evaluate patients on a second opinion basis. We welcome these visits and make use of all of our resources to help treat patients with challenging medical or behavioral conditions. Click here to read more.
