Natural approaches to feline health, welfare, and prosperity!
Cat-sensitive, pheromone-enriched examination and treatment environments.
First, do no harm. We do not declaw cats.
In diagnosing and resolving feline illness and injury, we emphasize the prevention of fear, anxiety and pain via our low-stress assessment, diagnosis, and treatment techniques. Dr Gustafson is a feline behavior specialist.
We anticipate, assess, and alleviate fear and pain first.
Vaccination is a medical procedure, and the decision to vaccinate, even with core vaccines, is based on a risk/benefit assessment for your cat regarding each vaccine antigen, vaccine type, and dosage. Vaccination may indeed be beneficial, but feline vaccination is not innocuous.
The benefit of vaccinating must be balanced against the risk of adverse events as a result of vaccination or over-vaccination. The decision to vaccinate is based on the likelihood of exposure to the pathogen based on the cat's living situation and location, the likelihood of instilling a beneficial immunity, the presence of a current immunity, and the bona fide presence of the pathogen in the community.
No Unecessary Surgeries, Medications, Vaccinations, parasite-preventatives or procedures.
