Hundreds of cats are euthanized each year.
The reason? August is the peak mating month for cats,
which leads to overloaded clinics in December and January -
NOT as is commonly thought, because furry gifts are returned.
So NOW, during mating season please keep your cats indoors, especially after dark.
Better yet, please have them spayed/neutered at The Cat Doctor.
Unsterilized cats have a biological drive to procreate. This involves marking their territory, increased hunting of wildlife, roaming for mates, and competing with rivals which result in fights that can lead to serious injury, not to mention noisy disturbances to your neighbors.
On a lighter note, If you're planning to travel remember that there's always a cat-friendly
place for your pet to stay while you're away: Let your furry family member relax with us in their own private, sanitary condo - with full windows, beautiful views and of course, five paws, spa level attention.
Visit us to check them out. Or have a peek here.I'm so comfy in my spa!
Now that the summer heat is upon us, when you leave your house, make sure there's plenty of fresh water for your pet - especially indoors - and make sure that it's changed daily
And don't forget the litter box! It should be changed whenever they go - if you can. Just take the soiled litter/poo, put it in a small lunch bag (best to use an old metal serving spoon to do this), and then toss the bag into the outside trash. Much nicer for all that way. You might keep a small dust buster nearby too. Cats like to be very clean!
Actually, it's a good idea to keep your cats indoors, especially after dark or during inclement weather. Get your pet a night visible collar too and a name tag. Remember, the Cat Doctor of Dover can implant a pet ID chip, so please ask us about it when you visit.
We can't say this enough. Please make sure your cat's teeth are in tip-top shape and you'll prevent many problems, not to mention making your pet comfortable. Read more about it here

For instance did you know that 85% of adult pets have dental disease? And that it's the single largest cause of health problems in cats?
So, please, always remember to ask Doctor Young about your pet's dental condition.
