Why does my indoor cat need to be vaccinated?
ALL CATS, even indoor only ones, need to be vaccinated! First, some cats may get outside and come into contact with wild animals or diseased cats.
Second, some viruses spread through the air or may be brought into your home on peoples clothing or shoes. Thus, indoor cats should be vaccinated for feline rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and panleukopenia. The schedule to be determined by your veterinarian.
Third, wild animals will sometimes enter the home. We had several instances in the past year of bats entering homes, lofts and apartments; putting owners and animals at risk. Several of the owners needed Rabies vaccinations, and their cats needed to be quarantined; because their rabies vaccinations had been allowed to lapse.
Therefore, for your safety, indoor cats should be kept current on their Rabies vaccination.
Dr. Scott Nieberg & Chris welcome you to the City Cat Clinic.
Ours is a full-service veterinary practice focused exclusively on cats and their owners. We are knowledgeable in diagnosing and treating virtually every aspect of feline health care, including geriatrics and diabetes.
If you are looking for a veterinary experience that is more relaxed, personal, and very cat friendly, City Cat Clinic is a good choice for you. We look forward to meeting you and your cat. By the way, Gen. Sherman and Lynyrd will also be glad to see you.
Scott Nieberg, D.V.M.
Dr. Nieberg graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri – Columbia in 1981. This is where he also was an undergraduate student and did his research work. Scott has spent all but two years of his professional career in small animal care. He worked in a mixed-animal practice in the St. Louis area for many years, and, because he preferred treating cats, Scott structured his schedule to concentrate on cats while looking for the right opportunity to open his own feline-only practice. That opportunity became reality when he purchased the City Cat Clinic in 2008. Scott is dedicated to providing thoughtful medical care for his feline patients, and clear, caring communications with his human clients. Scott is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
Chris started her career in veterinary medicine as a bookkeeper, but soon decided her true love was working with the animals. She graduated from Hickey College and is City Cat Clinic’s office manager and receptionist. Her most valuable asset to our clients and patients is her many years of experience as a veterinary technician. Chris makes sure you and your cat receive all the care and attention you need during regular check-ups, sick visits, hospitalization or boarding stays.
General Sherman has lived at City Cat Clinic since a kitten in 2000. He loves to sit on the counter in his favorite cat bed and patrol the activity through the day. The General will occasionally wake up from his all day naps to visit with clients as they come in, and to play with the newest clinic addition, Lynyrd.
< Lynyrd came to live with us in the summer of 2008. He was supposed to be feral, but we soon found out he was extremely sweet and loved everyone. To date, he has never met a stranger. Lynyrd is now our official “meeter and greeter.”
> Maddie is a black female who came to live with us in October of 2011. She was living in a graveyard around Halloween. She had a severely damaged foot. She was rescued along with her 3 babies, and brought to live with us. She is very shy, and prefers to spend her days in her bed under the cages.
She made quick friends with Lynyrd, but continues to be people shy. If you are lucky, you might catch her hanging out with Lynryd close to closing time; or if you come by the clinic on the weekend; she is usually snuggling with Lynryd on the the cat tree watching all of the weekend activity.
