Veterniary hospital offers cat-specific hours

To the Editor:

At Milford Veterinary Hospital, we LOVE dogs – but not all of our feline patients feel the same way. These cat-specific hours will decrease the stress on both you and your cat. This means no dogs allowed during this time!

Cats-only hours will be offered every Friday from 8-10 a.m. for the months of January and February.

Having only cats in the clinic during these hours will minimize stress on pet owners and their feline companions. Cats often become distressed when they see or interact with dogs or other species while visiting a veterinary clinic, and many owners are hesitant to bring in their cats due to the stress it causes. Only allowing cats during these hours will allow pet owners who may not bring in their cats for wellness and illness exams due to the stress it causes a better option for veterinary care.

As the need for additional cat-friendly hours arises, Milford Veterinary Hospital will offer additional times during which only cats will be seen at the clinic.

Appointments for cats during feline-only hours can be made by calling the clinic at 673-6101 during open hours, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m.; and every Saturday from 7:30 a.m.-noon. Pet owners may also make an appointment by logging into their Petly pages for online requests.

Offering cats-only hours locally is another way the caring staff at Milford Veterinary Hospital brings service offerings to the local community that will help their pets live fuller, happier lives.
