Free Exam and Consultation From Las Vegas Cat Clinic for Newly-Adopted Shelter and Rescue Cats

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 7, 2011) - All About Cats Veterinary Hospital is offering a free health check for cats that have been newly-adopted from a shelter or rescue organization. The Las Vegas cat clinic is providing the free exam and consultation for shelter or rescue cats within six months of the adoption; adoption papers are required. The offer extends to new clients as well as existing clients who are already familiar with the full range of services the cat vet provides. The free offer, normally a $44 value, can consist of a general health screening as well as a check-up that explores specific symptoms the cat may be experiencing. The goal of the clinic is to provide optimum and affordable care to area cats that need it as they focus on cat medicine and surgery only and are experienced in providing cat specific care.

"Think of our free exam and consultation as a homecoming gift for your new cat," said veterinarian Dr. Terri Koppe, manager of the All About Cats Veterinary Hospital. "Our cat vet is offering the special as a way to ensure your new cat starts off on the path to good health and as a way to encourage more people to adopt from area cat shelters and rescue groups. So many good cats need good homes."

An estimated 5 to 7 million pets end up in shelters across the U.S. every year, according to the ASPCA, and between 3 and 4 million of those animals are euthanized. More than half of the cats that enter shelters, or 70 percent, make up a portion of the animals that are euthanized. Abandoned pets and strays brought in by animal control organizations make up the majority of pets in shelters, and only about 10 percent of the animals brought in have been spayed or neutered.

Adopting a cat from a shelter or rescue group can help reduce the statistics as can ensuring cats are spayed or neutered so they do not unnecessarily add to the unwanted animal population, according to Dr. Koppe. All About Cats Veterinary Hospital offers spay and neuter surgeries, in addition to other preventative care services. Dr. Koppe notes that spaying and neutering helps control the unwanted cat population and reduces the risk of certain health conditions and behaviors.

Other services from the cat clinic include Las Vegas cat boarding, cat grooming, an on-site pharmacy and feline dentistry. The full-service cat vet is staffed by four experienced veterinarians who double as cat owners themselves and share a passion for helping animals. All About Cats Veterinary Hospital is designed as a cat-only environment and only provides veterinary care for cats and kittens. They are strong supporters of local animal shelters and rescue organizations and consistently urge people seeking pets to obtain one from the local groups. All About Cats continues its dedication to the community with a full range of surgical and diagnostic procedures as well as behavioral counseling, nutritional counseling, preventative medicine, and other services felines need to live the longest and healthiest lives.
