Hastings Veterinary Hospital in Burnaby BC offers cat care for kittens, adults, and senior felines and takes your pet’s needs seriously. We pride ourselves on making checkups and vaccinations as stress‐free as possible. We offer surgical services when required, including routine spaying and neutering, as well as general surgery and feline dentistry. With our digital radiology equipment we are able to offer on-site x-rays for diagnostics when your pet is ill or injured, as well as ultrasound.
With our in‐house pharmacy, we are able to offer nutritional and behavioural treatment, provide pain management, and assist with finding the right medication to help with any potential illness that may affect your cat. Our clinic also specializes in dermatology care to help those patients afflicted with allergies or skin issues.
Regular checkups can benefit both you and your cat by catching early signs of illnesses and health problems. Kittens and cats do their best to conceal any physical problems and early detection during an examination can often save your pet from unnecessary suffering, and save you money with early treatment.
During a checkup we examine:
Your cat won’t tell you if he or she feels unwell but we certainly can after examining them! During the annual checkup, you will have the opportunity to ask advice about feeding, behavioural problems, or any concerns you may have about your cat.
Vaccinations protect our cats from fatal diseases, while proper flea and deworming keep your cat happy and parasite free.
The core vaccination program should be started when your kitten is 8 weeks old, usually during his or her first checkup. Booster vaccines will be required to reach proper immunity.
Current vaccination programs consist of what is often referred to as the “Basic” and most important vaccine, FVRCPC. This combination vaccine helps to prevent four of the most common and contagious upper-respiratory tract infections such as:
Other vaccinations are also available and may be suitable for your cat, depending upon their current lifestyle:
Flea control comes in both oral and topical formulations; the choice depends on your pet’s lifestyle and potential for exposure. Parasite testing and deworming takes place during your cat’s annual checkup. We will advise you on the best steps to take to keep your cat happy and parasite‐free.
For more information on vaccinations, boosters, or flea and parasite prevention, please do not hesitate to contact our clinic directly.
Spaying and neutering are the most common surgical procedures performed at our hospital; they involve the removal of the reproductive organs to reduce sexual behaviours and aggression. This procedure minimizes the risk of health problems and helps to prevent cat overpopulation.
Other types of surgeries are sometimes needed:
Orthopedic surgery – These are procedures that are associated with bones, such as leg or hip fractures, hip dysplasia, disc disease, and so on.
Insertion of cat microchips – ensures easy identification if your pet is ever lost. It is a simple and quick procedure that does not require anaesthetic.
We will take care of your pet’s needs with our cat care programs. Visit our clinic and learn more about our preventative treatments and our surgery capabilities at:
