One of our technicians rescued these 4 kitties from an abandoned home in Edgerton, WI.
They were left alone for over a week with minimal food and dirty water. They were using their litter box up until the day they were rescued. They were COVERED in fleas! After four hours of her bathing and combing them, she brought them to our clinic for treatment until they can find their forever homes.
They are SUPER sweet and need a loving home. The orange tabby's are males, neutered, about 4 years old, and surprisingly healthy. They were timid at first, but have definitely come out of their shell! The short-haired kitty was found hiding in a kitchen cabinet scared to death.
The dark brown tabby is a male, neutered, and about 12 years old. He has lots of energy and wants all your attention. His blood work showed that he has Hyperthyroidism, a very common disease in older cats. All he needs is a pill twice a day, which he eats like a treat.
The last kitten is gray and white, long-haired, about 2 years old, and a female. She is not spayed, but will be once she is healthy enough. She is recovering from an upper respiratory infection and anemia from the fleas. She loves to be cuddle and brushed, she will purr and purr when getting attention.
Please contact the clinic if you are interested in giving any of these four cuties a home.
To benefit from our time together and best promote a high quality of life for your pet companion, it is important that you understand our holistic approach to your pet companion's wellness. We believe the best health comes from the integration of western medicine and eastern health practices. This is why we offer so many services all in one complex.
We are proud to be quite unlike any other veterinary practice!
The health of your pet's mind, body and spirit is influenced by your wellbeing, the health of your pet's environment (external forces including hygiene and nutrition), and genetics. I believe the six most important factors a guardian must provide to achieve maximal quality and longevity of life for his/her pet companion are: unconditional love, safety, exemplary nutrition, abundant exercise, training, and the wellbeing of the guardian's self. Remember, it is difficult for a caregiver to give if he/she is not whole. I encourage you to look at and into yourself during this nurturing process. What can you do to support the health of your mind, body, and spirit?
