Sometimes it’s difficult to identify when your cat’s not feeling well. Watch for these signs of illness, and consult with your veterinarian as soon as possible if your pet begins to show any of them.

1. Inappropriate elimination

A cat that urinates inappropriately could have any number of conditions associated with the behavior, including lower urinary tract disease, kidney disease, urinary tract infection, and diabetes mellitus. It can also be a sign of arthritis, which makes it difficult for cats to get into the litter box.

We are about to show you something that we commonly see in cats called alveolar osteitis.  Despite being common, many veterinarians do not know about it.  In just minutes, you will be able to check your own cat to determine whether he or she may be suffering from it.

Our Holiday Pet Food Drive was once again a huge success! We send a big THANK YOU out to our clients and the community for donating 8,000 pounds of food!  It almost filled our huge Education Room! Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be donating another 2,000 pounds to bring the grand total up to 5 tons of food. In addition, many, many toys and blankets were also donated to provide fun and comfort to homeless pets. Thank you!
