Cat Health

Hello and welcome to our “Cat section”

Dr. Joe Accardi loves animals and he is a strong believer in pet therapy (or animal-assisted therapy). He is also crazy about cats and his 4 year old Siamese cat Jasper clearly considers himself a “head” of the family 🙂

Vaccinations are a very important part of caring for your cat. Vaccinations prevent the spread of diseases and are an easy way to protect your cat against some painful, debilitating and often fatal diseases, including FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis), FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and Feline Leukaemia.
