Monthly Focus – Feline Health

Cats are notorious for hiding illness, and owners may not be aware their cat is sick until the illness becomes critical.


Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital’s core mission is disease prevention. We believe annual check ups provide two important health benefits for your pet:

  • Check ups allow us to keep vaccines current and to give you great information about nutrition, dental care, parasite control and many other aspects of preventive care.
  • Seeing your pet regularly provides an opportunity to detect many disease problems in the early stages when they can be most effectively treated.


If we have not seen your cat in the past year, please call or book an appointment online

Some cats become anxious when being transported to see their veterinarian, however, there are many steps we can take to ensure these visits are as pleasant as possible.
Indoor cats are just as susceptible to health issues as outdoor cats. Click here to learn more about common myths and facts surrounding feline health.


During October, we’re offering a Facebook contest for a chance to win a no-charge house call visit for cats. A house call is a great way for us to assess a particularly anxious cat and obtain insight into your cat’s lifestyle. We can observe things like litter box location, toys, etc and make recommendations to optimize your pet’s environment. Please follow us on Facebook and and share with your friends for your chance to win!


Do not hesitate to contact us or book an appointment online if you have questions or concerns about your pet’s care.








As always, we have a great monthly draw!  This month, we have a fantastic cat scratching post and a basket of great pet-related products that we will tailor to your pet. All cats that come to Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital in October will automatically be entered into the draw. You can also drop by the clinic to enter as often as you wish! The more times you enter the more chances of winning this great prize. 

Congratulations to Cheryl Bester, winner of last month’s gift basket.



Together, let's maintain and maximize your pet’s health... for life!
