This beautiful breed originated in Russia and was believed to have been brought back home by British sailors who fell in love with them while stationed in Russia. Russian Blues are intelligent and enjoy playing games with their family. They are also good at keeping themselves occupied when they are left alone. The Russian Blue can be shy or standoffish with strangers, but when they get to know someone they can be very affectionate. This breed is a creature of habit and is not a fan of change. Make sure to keep the litter box clean as they are a stickler for proper hygiene and a clean environment.
The Russian Blue is an excellent choice for allergy sufferers – they tend to shed less than most cats and produces lower levels of the Glycoprotein Fel d 1 allergen. If you are interested in an intelligent, affectionate yet independent cat who is striking, then the Russian Blue may be the right cat breed for you!

Bad breath (halitosis) in a dog or cat is usually because of poor dental health. Occasionally a dog or cat may have good teeth and still have bad breath in which case the diet is usually the cause. This is relatively rare, however, compared to the likelihood of a dental issue.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 416-282-6621 (appointments ONLY at this number). We will take a history of your pet from outside of your car, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet using social distancing methods. We will be taking payments over the phone, we are no longer taking cash at this time.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
