Cat Doctor

We are here to provide the care your pet needs.

At Champlin Park Pet Hospital, we love our cats. We want to ensure cat owners, and their cats feel safe, secure, and well cared for when visiting us for an appointment. As beloved members of your household, cats deserve the best treatment. Our cat veterinarians are trained medical professionals who will diagnose and treat a wide range of health issues that can affect your cat. Look no further if you are looking for a cat hospital near you.

We want to make sure cats who come to our clinic have a low-stress visit. All cats get a blanket on the exam table that is sprayed with a pheromone spray called “Feliway” which helps to calm them. We also try to offer high–reward snacks like Churu, catnip, or temptations treats. If your cat has a favorite treat or toy, you can absolutely bring those along to their visit with us as well! If you know your cat is very anxious, stressed or upset at veterinary visits, please contact us so we can discuss your cat’s behavior when they have an exam. We have a lot of tools to help visits be less stressful. To ensure your cat is safe when coming into the vet clinic, we also highly recommend them traveling in a carrier.

Physical Examinations

A physical examination is a great way to assess your cat’s overall health. Routine examinations set a baseline for your pet’s health. Once we have a baseline for your pet, we can more easily find abnormalities on future visits, such as injuries or illnesses that need to be addressed.

Physical examinations typically include: 

  • Examine eyes, ears, nose and mouth
  • Listen to heart and lungs
  • Palpating abdomen
  • Assessing body condition score and current weight
  • Muscle definition
  • Checking lymph nodes
  • And much more

After a thorough physical examination, your cat’s veterinarian will discuss their exam findings with you. We also address any questions or concerns you may have about your cat. We want to make sure you get all your questions answered while you are here. If your veterinarian does find something abnormal during an exam, they will then discuss further diagnostics or treatments that would be needed.

Our cat hospital in Champlin, MN also recommends running baseline lab work to ensure we can catch any underlying issues early on.

What is baseline lab work?

Typically, this involves a blood sample, which looks at internal organs such as kidneys, and liver. It also assesses decreased or elevated values for things such as glucose, platelet, white or red blood cell counts and much more. If any of these values are abnormal, we would discuss any possible treatments needed to ensure your cat lives a happy and healthy life as long as possible.

Preventative Care

Another important service we provide is preventative care. This type of care is meant to prevent serious health issues in cats. Preventative care includes regular check-ups, parasite control and vaccinations. Routine treatments are an important element for sustaining a healthy lifestyle. Contact us if you are looking for an experienced cat doctor near you.

For all annual pet appointments, we recommend checking intestinal parasite screening, which is checking a poop sample that is less than 24hrs old and not frozen. This test checks for any current intestinal parasite infection. Intestinal parasites are something we are concerned about in pets, because not only can it make your pet sick, but many intestinal parasites pets can get are also contagious to us humans. It is especially easy for humans who have a weakened immune system, such as the elderly or young children, to be infected with intestinal parasites.  

Cat Dental Care

Many pet owners don’t realize that cats can develop dental issues. Like humans, dental care is an important service to prevent plaque and tartar buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease. Scheduling a regular dental check-up and cleaning, combined with at-home options like cat treats will help prevent future issues. Our cat vets in Champlin will ensure your cat has a wonderful experience.

Surgical Care

Surgery is a common occurrence within a pet hospital. Here at Champlin Park Pet Hospital, we have a wonderful team to ensure your cat is healthy enough to undergo sedation or anesthesia. We also have a team of trained Certified Veterinary Technicians who monitor your cat through the entirety of their procedure, and while they are recovering in their comfy blanket-filled kennel.

For serious illnesses focus on finding a qualified pet hospital near you. The team here at Champlin can also be trusted to provide the best treatment.

Surgery can be an option to treat a wide range of conditions including: 

  • Gastrotomy / Celiotomy (removal of a foreign body from the stomach or intestines)
  • Aural Hematoma (blood vessel injury in an ear)
  • Orthopedic procedures
  • Abscess / Wound repair
  • Spay/Neuter
  • Mass/Tumor Removal
  • And Many More!

We do not perform declaws on cats here at Champlin Park Pet Hospital due to long-lasting pain that the procedure can cause in our felines. Please contact us to discuss alternative options to declawing!

  • When it comes to feeling safe and secure, choosing the right veterinarian is important. If surgery is required, then our team will keep you informed every step of the way. We provide pet owners with pre-and post-surgery instructions.
