LakeCross Veterinary Is Putting Out The Cat Welcome Mat

When was the last time you took your cat to see a veterinarian? If you are like most cat owners, it’s probably been a while. The Bayer Veterinary Care Usage Study found that 52% percent of cat owners avoid taking their feline friend in for regular vet visits. Unfortunately, that means that these felines are missing out on preventative care that could identify disease and medical issues early, when they are easier to treat.

To reverse this trend, some veterinarians are changing their approach to cat care. One local veterinary clinic with a strong feline focus is LakeCross Veterinary in Huntersville. Founded 25 years ago by husband and wife veterinarians Tom Hemstreet, DVM, RSO and Donna Warren, DVM, LakeCross Veterinary is the first Gold-certified Cat Friendly Practice in the Lake Norman area.

“Our goal is to have a low-stress environment for both the cat and the pet parent,” said Dr. Warren “This leads to more regular visits and the opportunity to treat health problems that may otherwise be missed.”

Protecting Those Who Protect Us

LakeCross Veterinary was proud to present body armor vests to the K9 Unit of the Huntersville Police Department. We thought this would be the most tangible way we could show how much we care for these service animals and their officers. We’re glad we can add this extra layer of protection that could potentially save the lives of these K9s.
