Get your cat used to the kittens’ scent (and vice versa)
Introduce them visually
Finally, allow them to meet. The best time to make their formal introduction is at mealtime when their desire for food will overcome all other distractions. When they meet for the first time, expect some hissing and growling – this is a normal part of them establishing their individual places within the hierarchy. Be prepared with a big towel to separate them just in case a fight develops.
Treat them both equally. Separate them and keep apart until the next mealtime, gradually increasing the time they spend together. Share treats, affection and attention between them equally during their time together, not only to build positive associations but also to demonstrate that there is no favouritism.
If you have any questions, give us a call at 416.282.8516.
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 July 6th, 2020 we have made 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, if you choose to, we will then allow 1 family member per appointment in the clinic. Once inside you will be directed to an exam room. We have put special measures in place to keep you, your pets and our staff safe.
Technician appointments will still be required to wait in the car for the duration of the appointment.
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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
