Island Cats Updated Face Mask Policy

As most of us are aware, mask recommendations are frequently changing and we at Island Cats Veterinary Hospital try to keep up on the most recent advice from the Center for Disease Control.

Effective immediately, we are no longer requiring clients to wear a face mask while in the building. We will continue to provide masks to those clients who still choose to wear a mask indoors. You may still see some of our staff wearing masks for their own protection, as well as in exam rooms since it is a small space.

We still ask that only one client accompanies their pet into the exam rooms unless it is a critical case. If you are feeling ill, have tested positive for Covid, or have been exposed please follow the CDC guidelines for isolation and reschedule your appointment if needed.

The safety and health of our clients and staff is paramount. We will continue to keep everyone advised if there are any further changes.

Thank you!

Cat Speciality Care in Mercer Island, WA

At Island Cats Veterinary Hospital”, we offer specialized care for your pet. Our specialty services are here to identify the root cause of your cats issues. If we are not able to identify or help treat your cat’s health issues we work with many local veterinarians who can help. If you have any questions about our specialty care, please contact us today.

Cat Speciality Care

We work with your cat’s internal body systems, whether the illness is sudden or chronic due to: infection, cancer, degenerative, inflammatory, immune, or trauma. We emphasize minimally-invasive techniques and our advanced diagnostic procedures give us the power to effectively diagnose and treat your pet.

Internal Medicine

Oftentimes, owners explain that something isn’t right with their cat, and they’re correct 99% of the time. Cats can’t always tell us what’s wrong, you are your cat’s advocate which makes figuring out some pet’s illness truly a team effort. Observing your pet and doing a thorough exam is the next step.

Dermatology

Our doctors have years of experience in identifying and managing dermatological conditions in companion animals. We use a number of highly effective diagnostic techniques – including laboratory tests, skin scrapings, cytology, and biopsy – to help us get the answers we need.

  • Allergies
  • Parasites

Nutritional Counseling
Feeding a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight can increase life expectancy, quality-of-life, decrease the risk of many diseases (such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease), and help manage chronic medical conditions.
Behavioral Counseling

Cats can have a wide variety of behavioral issues, from simple house-training problems to severe anxiety and aggression issues. This is where we come in. We are qualified and experienced in diagnosing and addressing behavior problems with an approach that combines skills from veterinary clinical medicine and behavioral medicine. As you learn to communicate with your pet, you’ll watch your bond grow over time.

Pain Management
Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage pain from the outset as well as continuing to manage pain throughout your cat’s treatment and recovery process. Did you know that various types of pain can look different in animals? Fortunately, our staff of compassionate, caring professionals is skilled in recognizing signs of pain in animals and developing an individualized plan for managing pain in our patients.
Veterinary Referrals

We understand that finding reputable veterinary resources can be stressful. If you have questions or concerns about your cat’s health, please contact us. If we are unable to help with your pet’s care, we can refer you to a qualified professional who can.
