Illness and Disease in Cats

Cats are very adept at hiding their illness or injury, but there are almost always subtle (or not so subtle) signs that indicate your cat may have a health issue.

Only a veterinarian can test and diagnose disease in your pet properly.  After diagnosis, we will educate you about the condition and provide recommendations and options for treatment.
