Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Catrysse Veterinary Services offers in-house urinalysis as well as fecal (stool) examinations. Your veterinarian will recommend a urinalysis to help in diagnosing certain conditions such as urinary tract infections, bladder stones, kidney function, toxicities, and glucose in the urine due to diabetes. Fecals are also recommended to detect parasitic infections as well as viral or bacterial infections.
Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?
Fecals allow veterinarians to check your pet for intestinal parasites, useful and harmful bacteria. Intestinal parasites are a major cause of morbidity in pets and also a concern for people.
If my dog’s urine test reveals a urinary tract infection, what can I do?
If your dog has been diagnosed with a urinary tract infection (UTI), your veterinarian may recommend urine culture and sensitivity testing and a treatment plan to alleviate symptoms and the cause of the infection (usually antibiotics and pain/anti-inflammatories remedies).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS

- Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
