Services

Tailored to the needs of you and your cat

At Houston Cat Hospital, we believe that each cat is unique and deserves personalized care. Vaccination protocols for cats are changing and not every cat needs every shot every year. We will customize your cat’s vaccination program based on your cat’s lifestyle in order to minimize risk and maximize protection. We take into consideration your cat’s age, time spent outdoors, and exposure to other cats. Even indoor cats need vaccines to help protect them from disease, so let us help you understand what vaccines are right for your pet!

Wellness care is the most important aspect of preventative care for your cat. By performing annual or twice-yearly exams, we can diagnose and treat illness before it becomes serious. All cats should have annual examinations, and senior cats (8 years or older) should be examined twice each year. Our examinations are scheduled for a minimum of thirty minutes to allow ample time to thoroughly assess your cat’s health and address all your concerns.

Annual exams and laboratory screenings are an effective way to detect problems early and making treatment easier. With our convenient in-house laboratory, we can have test results back in as little as 15 minutes. We will discuss all lab work with you so that you fully understand any disease present and will go over the treatment options in detail in order to give your cat the very best care.

Our hospital clinic features state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, allowing us to obtain blood work results within 15-20 minutes, in-house x-rays and ultrasounds with a board-certified ultrasonographer, 3 exam rooms, a full pharmacy, grooming, and boarding facilities, featuring a six-story townhouse.

We love our patients

Diagnostics

We offer in-house laboratory testing for most of your cat’s health concerns, allowing us to obtain life-saving information quickly! We can diagnose diabetes, hyperthyroidism and kidney disease as well as a multitude of urinary conditions. We also work with national and specialized laboratories in the event that more unique testing is needed.

Houston Cat Hospital cat-anatomyWe have an onsite x-ray machine and can diagnose broken bones, arthritis, asthma, heart disease, intestinal foreign objects and many other conditions. We have a blood pressure machine to diagnose hypertension which is common in geriatric cats and can lead to stroke or organ damage. Additionally, we have ophthalmic equipment to check your cat’s eyes which can give us important information about overall health and help us diagnose other diseases.

We also work closely with a board-certified radiologist who performs on-site ultrasounds and x-ray consults by appointment.

Houston Cat Hospital Pharmacy

We feature a fully stocked pharmacy for our feline patients and can begin treatment immediately for most conditions so that your cat will start to feel better as soon as possible. We can fill the vast majority of prescriptions for you to take home with you for your convenience. We also carry flea and heartworm prevention to protect your cat from these prevalent and dangerous parasites.

Emergency

If your cat is experiencing an emergency, please call us at 713-782-6369, if possible, so that we can prepare for your cat’s arrival. We accept emergencies, no appointment required, from 9 am until 6 pm, Mo, Tu, We, Fr; until 4 pm on Thursday; and 8 am until close on Saturday. We are well-equipped to handle most emergencies or can refer you to specialists, if needed. We can take x-rays and develop them within minutes. We have a full in-house laboratory and can begin getting test results back within 15 minutes. We have human infant incubators for emergency supplemental oxygen and heat.

If your cat needs emergency care when we are not open or before 9 am weekdays and 8 am Saturdays, we recommend the Veterinary Emergency Referral Group Inc. 713-932-9589, 8921 Katy Freeway.

For patients who are in need of other tests we utilize IDEXX laboratories daily, allowing access to a variety of specialist including boarded pathologists.

Surgery

Our veterinarians are experienced with a wide variety of surgeries that your cat may need. We have a sterile surgery suite, complete with anesthetic monitoring equipment, heat support, IV fluid delivery pump, x-ray viewer, feline-sized instruments and specialized lighting. We even have emergency lighting in case there is a power outage while operating. In addition, a skilled technician is with your cat throughout the entire anesthesia to provide constant monitoring. Heat support is also provided during recovery if needed. Your cat’s safety is our utmost concern!

Hospital

For illnesses requiring in-hospital treatment, we have feline-specialized equipment and an incredibly compassionate staff to provide the highest level of care. Our hospital can provide intravenous fluids and medications, as well as in-house laboratory testing and x-rays. We have two human infant incubators to provide heat and supplemental oxygen for critical patients. Hospitalized patients are monitored very closely and the hospital is kept quiet and calm so that the cats can rest comfortably and heal. We offer special diets for specific medical conditions and to tempt finicky felines. All cats receive tender, loving care with great attention to detail.

We have two isolation wards and cats with infectious diseases are kept away from all other patients and boarders. We go to great lengths to make sure that the cats in our care are as comfortable as possible. Their needs are constantly re-assessed to insure optimal management of their medical condition.

Dentistry

Dental care is an important part of your cat’s overall health. Dental infections can spread and lead to problems in other organ,s such as, the bladder, kidneys or heart. In addition, infected teeth are usually quite painful and can lead to decreased food intake and an unhealthy weight loss. We check your cat’s teeth and oral cavity thoroughly during examinations to look for signs of disease. If tartar or infections are found, we recommend a dental cleaning and whatever else is needed to keep your cat feeling their best!

When your cat has a dental cleaning, they will be anesthetized to insure a safe and painless experience. First, the tartar is cleaned off the teeth using an ultrasonic scaler. Next, a periodontal probe is used to check for pockets of disease, cavities or exposed nerve tissue. Lastly, your cat’s teeth are polished to create a smooth surface that will discourage plaque adhesion. Because your cat will have been sedated, they will stay the night with us. This is included in the price of the cleaning.

We are also excited to offer Oravet dental sealant which can be applied to your cat’s teeth after they are polished. This easy to apply sealant is then used once weekly at home to slow down future plaque build up. We have seen a noticeable improvement in dental health with cats using Oravet!

If your cat needs a more routine cleaning to prevent dental disease, call us at 713-782-6369 for an appointment any time.

Grooming

We can help your cat look his or her best! We provide complete grooming including claw trimming, bathing, combing, mat-removal and more. Our groomers are skilled in working with cats, and they treat your feline friend with a gentle touch. We can also provide sedation for grooming when needed to insure that your cat remains stress-free!

Grooming services are available by appointment only. Please call us at 713-782-6369 to make an appointment!

Boarding

We offer a wide variety of boarding accommodations to fit your cat’s needs, including multi-level townhomes that allow your cat to get plenty of exercise! Fresh food and water is always available unless a specific feeding schedule has been requested. Litter boxes are checked hourly and cleaned as often as needed. We employ 3 full-time kennel attendants to assure that the cats are monitored closely and receive lots of attention.

All cats are watched for appetite, general attitude and use of litter box. Should a cat have a change in daily habits or seem to feel sick, our technicians notify the doctor immediately, including on weekends and holidays.

We are happy to board special-needs cats with medical conditions, ensuring that while you are away your cat will receive their needed medication. At Houston Cat Hospital we strive to do whatever it takes to make your cat feel comfortable. We take pride in knowing their individual personalities and catering to their specific needs. They are given stuffed animals to cuddle with and toys to play with. Shy or timid cats are given privacy and a place to hide so they feel safe.

All cats staying in our boarding facility must have current vaccinations for FVRCP and rabies, unless otherwise approved by the veterinarian. Please call to make a reservation at 713-782-6369.
