AVMA lists 5 common cat health problems
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, common reasons for pet owners to visit a veterinarian include an injured pet, routine vaccination, to be spayed or neutered, and flea or tick medications. In 2012, the AVMA's State of Pet Health report stated that cat obesity has risen over 90 percent since 2007 and people are beginning to look at their pet food as the source of health problems. The following are five of the most common cat health problems: Obesity (Cat food that contains carbohydrates such as corn and wheat are fattening for your cat); Hyperthyroidism (The most common glandular disorder in cats, hyperthyroidism includes symptoms such as a weight loss or an increased appetite); Dental disease (Damage to a cat's gums, teeth, and tongue can led to many health risks); Skin problems (Some pet food contain known allergens, such as corn and any type of gluten which can cause skin rashes, redness, bald spots and/or dry, flaky skin); Feline lower urinary tract disease (Cats can develop FLUTD from stress, bladder infections, hyperthyroidism, or diabetes mellitus).

"I was referred to Ark Pet Hospital by a friend when I had found an abandoned dog that I decided to welcome into my home. I was unsure of my new pet's medical history, so I took her into their clinic to get a complete physical exam, as well as any necessary vaccinations. Not only did I find their staff extraordinarily friendly and welcoming, but their veterinary services were very affordable. I would recommend Ark Pet Hospital to any and every pet owner in the Twin Cities."

 Lisa J., Minneapolis, MN

"To all the Staff at Ark Pet Hospital-My cat Sammy had a urinary tract infection, which at first seemed like a big problem, because of the cost. I then met Dr. Mary Philippson, who gave Sammy some meds. which he did not respond to. So the option of putting my cat down was becoming a reality. Then Mary and I talked,...and thankfully she worked with me on the cost of a surgery. The surgery was a success. Sammy is now back home to his old self, playing with the other two cats. This letter is to thank you for everything that was done for my cat, it is priceless."  Sincerely,

Ricky D., New Brighton

"Thank you for caring with so much compassion, especially when I came in last week, shaking my ears after my traumatic grooming experience. Your sweet understanding gave me hope that I'd be all right. I really enjoy seeing you-thank you for seeing me through yearly visits, surgery, and wrapping me in bonnets!"

Love, Opie

"Yes, we absolutely agree with Opie's words. Thank you for being the best for our furry friends! We really appreciate you and your support at a moment's notice."

Erica and Brian
