Cedar Pet Clinic Blog


Cedar Pet visitors are accustomed to being greeted by kitty Moe in our reception area, and our staff enjoys occasional seasonal photography with him as the star. You might recall "Springtime Moe" from earlier this year. Here, vet tech Sarah presents Moe in an October mood, both awake and napping. Moe, who was found by our staff in a drainage ditch outside the clinic a few years ago, is a benevolent ruler of our reception area. What a good cat! moe2

FROM OUR VETS: Senior Pets

Are you living with a senior citizen pet? Aged animals have special requirements. With attention to these needs, you can extend the life span and quality of life of your elderly pets.

Continual dental care is very important. Many ailments such as liver and kidney disease, heart problems and arthritis can be attributed to infected teeth and gums. Also the foul odor and taste accompanying dental diseases must be uncomfortable for the elderly pet.

The primary heart disease of older dogs and cats is congestive heart failure. Dry, persistent coughing may be the first indicator. Medications can help your pet live comfortably and live longer.

Kidney failure is one of the most prevalent old age problems and a leading cause of death. Special diets can reduce the demands on the kidneys and so extend their longevity.

The Cats of Kilkenny

Sometimes, it just improves the day to hear a nice poem about our animal friends...

Cats of Kilkenny

There once were two cats of Kilkenny,

Each thought there was one cat too many,
So they fought and they fit, 
And they scratched and they bit,

Till, excepting their nails,

And the tips of their tails,

Instead of two cats, there weren't any.
