Environmental enrichment for our feline family members

by Alex Weber, DVM on 12/28/13

Our feline veterinary practice sees many behavioral issues on a daily basis.  It is true that there are many causes for these issues including medical, but sometimes it seems that boredom can be a factor.


It is always extremely important to rule out underlying medical causes for abnormal behavior in our feline patients.  A very common case that our feline veterinarians see is urinary spraying or inappropriate elimination. This behavior is often causes by a urinary tract infection and without proper diagnosis and treatment, the problem would never go away.  But once that is ruled out, sometimes keeping your cat active (mentally and physically) helps reduce or eliminate the behavior.  

Having the proper toys and cat fixtures (scratching posts, cat condos, etc) keeps your cat occupied and stimulated but the most important thing that these guys enjoy is interacting with their human house mates.  And don't forget that this usually helps us out as well by relaxing us.  All very important things to keep the household in balance.

If you have any questions about this or any other feline veterinary topic,  contact us at 813-289-3926.

Keeping your cat safe during the holidays

by Alex Weber, DVM on 12/05/13

We all enjoy the holiday season and want to make sure everyone, including your cats are safe.  All the extra food, plants and decorations make the season festive and can certainly attract the attention of our feline companions.  At our animal clinic in Tampa, our veterinarians recommend that you keep decorations, plants and non - pet food out of the reach of your cats for their protection.  


Some of the most common problems that our cat veterinarians in Tampa see during this season are foreign bodies from swallowing ribbons (a very serious condition) or ornament hangers and dietary problems from eating foods that our cats are not used to.  

In order to make the holiday safe for all, take steps to pet proof your house (just like baby proofing for an infant).  Trying to stay one step ahead of our cats is difficult but will help keep them safe.

If you have any questions for our cat veterinarians in Tampa, please call us at 813-289-3926.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Importance of regular exams in all cats

by Alex Weber, DVM on 11/13/13

Preventative exams are essential for all cats.

Even if your cats live the good life indoors and appear healthy, it is extremely important to have them seen by a veterinarian yearly in order to help them live a long and happy life. Our domesticated cats have inherited the ability from their big cat relatives to hide symptoms of disease (ex. cats generally do not show symptoms from kidney disease until 75% of the kidney function is damaged).  Our cat vets in Tampa feel yearly exams are very important for early detection of treatable / preventable illnesses. Just as in human medicine, early detection can make treatment much easier and help your cat live a longer, healthier life.  If it's been awhile since your feline family member has been seen by a veterinarian, and you live in the Tampa area, call our cat veterinary clinic to schedule their preventive exam and let us help keep your feline family member healthy.

Vaccinations and your cat - cat vet in Tampa FL

by Alex Weber, DVM on 10/19/13

Our cat vets in Tampa FL make recommendations for your cats vaccinations based on their lifestyle and habits. The major factor that is considered is whether or not your cat spends unsupervised time outdoors.  For our indoor only cats, our veterinarians recommend Rabies and Feline Distemper vaccinations only.  If any amount of time is spend outdoors, then the Feline Leukemia vaccination is added to your cat's vaccination protocol. It is always advisable to keep your cats indoors as often as possible but if they need to spend some time out in the great outdoors, make sure they are properly vaccinated.


If you have any questions about this, or any other cat / feline topics, contact our cat veterinarians in Tampa at bpac1@verizon.net or 813-289-3926.

Regular, personal cat care is extremely important - Cat Clinic of Beach Park - Cat Vet in Tampa / South Tampa 33609.

by Alex Weber, DVM on 09/20/13

We all know that our feline friends have very specialized personalities.  That's what makes having cats as pets fun.  And just like going to your own doctor who gets to know you over time, it is important that your veterinarian gets to know your cat.  This is why it is important to visit the same veterinarian for examinations over the years.  Then they can notice small changes in personality, activity, etc that someone not familiar with your cat can't.  Not something that you can get at a shot clinic!


Our veterinarians in Tampa / South Tampa, FL feel it is extremely important to build long term relationships with their clients and therefore get to know more about their patients.  This is an important aspect of your cat's healthcare.

If you have any questions for our veterinary staff in Tampa / South Tampa FL, please contact us at 813-289-3925 or email at bpac1@verizon.net
