Pet Medical Center to Host Cat Haven Fundraiser – 10/12/12 & 10/13/12
Lions and Tigers and Jaguars…Oh My! Did you know that these big cats receive similar veterinary care to your typical domestic cat? Like your kitty at home, the resident cats at the Cat Haven receive vaccinations, radiographs and ultrasounds, are treated for similar sicknesses and diseases and periodically need to have surgical and dental procedures.
You may not have known that Pet Medical Center provides medical care for the resident wild cats at the Cat Haven facility in Dunlap. From wellness visits and vaccines to surgery and dental extractions, the staff of PMC extends our love of cats to those that have much bigger cat-titudes. In addition to our staff here at PMC, the emergency veterinarians and veterinary specialists at Fresno Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center also provide the wild cats with any emergency and specialty care that they might need.
Our staff works closely with the Cat Haven to make sure that all of their resident cats stay healthy so that they can continue to promote awareness through education.
Currently, all of the cats need to be transported to the Pet Medical Center for treatment. The smaller and more portable cats are able to visit PMC fairly easily and can ride in a crate to our hospital. It becomes more challenging to transport our bigger Cat Haven friends like the lions and tigers. They need to be sedated for transport to and from the hospital and sometimes pending the health of the animal, this additional anesthesia time can become a concern for the veterinarian. See some of our treatment pictures in our Cat Haven Gallery.
Pet Medical Center is working with the Cat Haven to help them raise funds to set up a medical facility at their location in Dunlap. If you have never visited their facility, it’s a must see! Click here to visit the Cat Haven website and follow the Cat Haven on Facebook.
Pet Medical Center will be hosting a Fund Raiser for the Cat Haven this Friday 1pm-6pm and Saturday 10am-1pm. Rose & Samba, the jaguar cubs, will be visiting PMC on those days for some veterinary treatment and would love it if you stopped by to say hello. Project Survival at the Cat Haven is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization & donations are tax deductible. Donations for the Cat Haven medical facility can be made by check to “Project Survival” and dropped off at PMC during your visit or can be made by credit card by visiting the Cat Haven website.
If you have any questions about the jaguar cubs, the Cat Haven facility in Dunlap or wildlife conservation projects currently in progress with Project Survival, Holly and Hanna from Cat Haven will be on hand to answer your questions.
If you have never seen these girls in person, please join us, they will captivate you!
