Physical exams are an imperative part of evaluating the health of your cat. We recognize the necessity of checking your cat nose to tail to ensure health problems are not overlooked.
Micro-chipping is an implant placed under your cat's skin. A microchip is not a GPS tracking device. Instead, the chip can be scanned by a veterinarian or shelter if your cat ever becomes lost. We utilize HomeAgain Microchips.
We receive many inquiries regarding dental cleanings. It is not an unusual practice in the veterinary profession to anesthetize a cat to clean their teeth. We find this treatment rather extreme as our goal is to avoid anesthesia, especially when there are other options for maintaining your cat's oral health that is not as invasive or expensive.
At New England Cat Care, we utilize antibiotics therapy and Bartonella evaluations to diagnose and manage your cat's dental needs efficently. Surgery should only be considered in the event of a severe autoimmune disorder known as Stomatitis, if your has developed a "cavity" (referred to as FORL), or if your cat has broken a tooth.
Common techniques used to maintain your cat's dental health are: Bartonella testing, in-office calculus removal and antibiotics for gingivitis.
Kittens are the best! We know how important your newest family member is, and we want to help ensure your kitten is well cared for by providing you with the knowledge of how to care for your growing cat.

Standard deworming begins at 8 weeks.

Vaccinations protect your cat from incurable, sometimes deadly, disease. New England Cat Care's duty is to educate you on the importance of properly vaccinating your cat. We design unique vaccine protocols based on your cat's risk factors. While we understand that some people are nervous about vaccines, we want to assure you that our protocols incorporate specific needs about your cat, we do not provide general vaccine recommendations. We understand that while vaccines are safe, they can create problems when misused.
Vaccines we recommend based on your cat's individual needs: Rabies, Distemper (FVRCP), Feline Bordetella, Leukemia
Internal medicine is the foundation of New England Cat Care. We are at the forefront of managing disease in cats. Commonly, new clients contact us for a second opinion when their cat has developed a chronic illness. We practice on scientific principles for managing disease and work to discover ways through diet and medication to control chronic illness.
We provide diagnostic evaluations to complement our internal medicine care:
Urinalysis, Blood work, X-rays, Ultrasound, Cardiac care and Blood pressure
At New England Cat Care, no surgery is considered "routine." We understand the risks involved with anesthesia, so to ensure your cat has a positive experience, we adhere to strict protocols our doctors have developed from their schooling & experience.
Surgeries available but not limited to:
Lump Removal, Spay, Neuter, Wound Care and Urinary Obstruction
We cannot stress this enough - Age is not a disease! We are dedicated to your cat, no matter how old they are, and you will never hear our team brush over a medical issue just because your cat is older.
Over the years, we have become the premier veterinarian to go to when your cat is in their golden years. The care for an older cat can be daunting and may require daily medication to help control disease, but we are here to provide your cat anything from disease management to palliative care.
