We’re welcoming the New Year by taking some time to look back at the one we just wrapped up. At Clairmont Animal Hospital, we put a lot of effort into compiling informative blogs to help you get answers to some of your biggest veterinary questions. We love providing content that helps our pet owners offer their animals the best lives. Here are some of our top blogs from the last year:

Reading Between the Lines: Deciphering When Your Cat Is Sick

In the wild, cats must minimize any signs of weakness to avoid potential predators. Even though the hardest part of your cat’s day might be deciding which spot gets the most sun, this biological instinct still remains strong. Because of this, it can be hard to tell when your cat is sick. This blog helps you figure out the signs your cat gives when he is not feeling his best so you can get the necessary veterinary care. 

Is a Laparoscopic Spay Right for Your Pet?

Spaying your pet not only reduces the amount of unwanted litters, it also helps avoid some potential health problems. Spaying your dog or cat lowers her risk of diseases like pyometra, breast cancers, and hormone-related illnesses. Once you make the decision to spay your special girl, there are a few different surgical routes you can take. Check out this popular blog to see if a laparoscopic spay is the right choice for your pet.

Parasites like fleas, ticks, mites, and lice can make big problems for your pet (and for you). How can you tell if your pet is suffering from an unwanted visitor? This blog gives you some tips on finding and identifying external parasites and helps you figure out the best way to get rid of them. 

What Does AAHA Accreditation Mean for You and Your Pet?

At Clairmont Animal Hospital, we are incredibly proud of earning and maintaining our accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Check out this blog to find out what this means for you and your pet and the kind of care you can expect from our hospital. 

Tale as Old as Time: Revealing Why Cats Knead

Cats are quirky creatures, and many of their behaviors leave even us scratching our heads. Many of our clients wonder why cats knead. We dive deeply into the act of “making biscuits” in this blog to help you learn even more about your cat and how they’re feeling.
