Motor, Clinic Cat

Motor was caught in an engine and had a broken rear leg. We pinned his leg to set the fracture and kept him quiet over the weekend. On Monday the owners never came for him and eventually relinquished him to us. Motor is know around the clinic for stealing everyones lunch! He was nicknamed sticky paws!

Girdy, Clinic Cat

Girdy was found at a soccer field with her sister Gracie. Some children were messing with them, picking them up by their tail, and knocking them around. One of our employees rescued them and brought them to the clinic. Girdy is known for her crazy meow's throughout the clinic. Clients often ask if we have a bird in the back!

Gracie, Clinic cat

Gracie was found with her sister, Girdy, in a soccer field. Some children were messing with them, picking them up by their tail and knocking them around. One of our employees rescued them and brought them to the clinic. Gracie is known for taking showers in the morning in our treatment area sink and leaving a mess for the staff to clean up, but we are happy she is involved in personal hygiene!

Tigger, Clinic Cat

Tigger was found wandering in a neighbor's yard and came across a dog that didn't care for cats. He was attacked and bitten in the rear with severe damage. We fixed him up and amputated his tail. He loves terrorizing his sister Gracie and they are always fighting over the sink, but he is a gentle giant and we love all 20 pounds of him.

Bozley, Clinic Cat

Bozley was dropped off after he had been found by the side of the road possibly hit by a car. He had nerve damage to his right front paw and swelling near the base of his tail. We had to amputate his tail and he recovered very well and is very mobile with his paralyzed paw. He is known in the clinic for having the sweetest personality and he is truly a one of a kind cat.

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort.
