Have We Seen Your Cat Lately?
Dr. Lilliana Rosignoli sees cats in a dog free, Cat Only Area of the hospital located in the back of our building on Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s. Dr. Rosignoli is NPAH’s feline champion. She is very knowledgeable in feline health and is dedicated to their needs. Dr. Rosignoli has a special gift with cats that shines through in her compassionate and comforting care.
Cat Only Means:
- No friendly dogs nosing your cat’s carrier
- Less noise (and no barking) in the waiting area
- Less stressful visit for your feline
Common Myths About Cat Health
- Cats are naturally healthier and more problem-free than dogs
- Feline health problems come from outside and don’t affect indoor cats
- Cats will display visible signs of illness like dogs do
The truth is, cats need regular veterinary care, including annual exams and vaccinations, just like dogs do. Because cats are naturally adept at hiding signs of illness, annual exams are especially important for early diagnosis of health problems.
We want to make your cat’s visit to our hospital as stress free as possible for the both of you! As well as offering a “Cat Only” area, we also spray Feliway pheromones on a towel that we drape over your cat’s carrier. The “happy” pheromones along with the darker interior will have a soothing effect.
“When a cat feels comfortable in their environment, they rub their cheeks against objects leaving a facial pheromone. Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure.
