So now you know why parasites
Need to be kept at bay
And there’s so much that we can do
To make them stay away

Our recommended method
For your pest control solution
Protects us like no other can
You guessed it - it’s Revolution!

Doc knows it as selamectin
And it’s designed to treat
For hook and roundworms, ear mites, fleas,
And prevent heartworms - how neat!

That means you can avoid disease
In us as well as you
And keep us comfy and flea-free
Inside and outside too

Heartworms are a real danger
For us especially
They’re hard to diagnose in cats
And harder still to treat

This means for cats Revolution
Is really your best option
Keep us protected from the start
And exercise due caution

And just because it’s so important
We’ve got deals for you
Get $15 dollars off one box
And $35 for two!

One box is six months of protection
Two is one full year
You’ll save some cash and keep us safe
And smiling ear to ear!

Hey y’all, it’s me Pogo! I’m back to tell you a little more about Revolution and why feline specialists like Doc recommend it for all you kitty parents out there. It’s a 5-in-1 prevention medication that protects us from fleas, ear mites, hook and roundworms, and heartworms before they get the chance to infect us and cause disease. This is particularly important because heartworms in cats are very difficult to diagnose and nearly impossible to treat once they’ve matured into adult worms. Yuck! Good thing Revolution prevents these mean little worms from developing and thus keeps us heartworm-free when used on a consistent monthly schedule. It’s safe for kittens and cats alike, and your feline friend will thank you for being such a cat-savvy mom or dad! Have questions? Just give us a call or come on in to the Cat Practice to learn more!

Purrfectly yours,
Pogo (and Cadence)

When your cat comes for annuals
You might just start to ask
“Why do they need to check the stool?
If I’m just here for vax?”

It’s quite important - yes really!
For both your pal and you
With a yearly parasite exam
There’s so much we can do!

Here in the south it’s always warm
So hook and roundworms thrive
They love the easy winters here
Where they can still survive

To make things worse they know the way
To get under our skin
Their eggs are passed from cat to cat
Then hatch out from within

The larvae grow inside our bodies
Getting big and strong
And cause all kinds of nasty woes
If they’re in us for long

And here’s the thing about these worms
They’re zoonotic too
Which means they show up in our poop
And spread from us to you

A yearly exam can diagnose
Even the wiliest worm
Then Doc can kill those awful pests
That make your stomach turn

Protecting us from parasites
That outside cats can carry
Is crucial for a healthy pet
And thus a healthy family!

So don’t stop there - go all the way
Protect us all year-round
Put us on monthly Revolution
And pests won’t gain more ground

We recommend it for all cats
Especially outdoors
But that’s all that I’ll say for now
Next week I’ll tell you more!

Hey y'all! Today I'm here to talk to you about our annual parasite exam - included automatically when you bring your cat in for his or her annual checkup! Here in Louisiana, the warm weather we love so much also means lots of yucky parasites are all around us outside. Hookworms and Roundworms are two of the major kinds of parasites that plague us kitties, and what's worse we can pass them on to you and your family. Protecting us from parasites means you're protecting your whole household - both human and feline! Protection starts with yearly parasite exams to make sure nothing is already growing inside of us, and monthly prevention with meds like Revolution is the best way to keep us pest-free all year-round. Keep a lookout for next week's post, where I'll talk a bit more about Revolution - our monthly preventative treatment of choice - and why our feline-only physicians and nursing staff use it to keep their kitties and human family members safe and healthy too!

Purrfectly yours,
Pogo (and Cadence)

Hi folks, it’s time for another #kittycameo - and this time we’re taking a walk down memory lane for an extra-special #flashbackfriday edition! Ever wondered where the royal felines of Endymeow got their start? Well look no further, because today’s Kitty Cameo star is one of the brightest in the sky! The Cat Practice proudly presents Queen Blacktop: The Road To Royalty


From the start, Blacktop’s human mom knew her purrfect princess was destined for something greater. With a fiercely independent spirit and a thirst for adventure, our Queen-to-be was always finding new opportunities to explore her palace and set herself apart from the pack. Never one to follow convention, our little princess never meowed - squeaking is a much more effective way to communicate her needs to her loyal subjects! Now that she’s grown into the stately beauty we know and adore, her Highness Queen Blacktop can be found attending to pressing matters of business such as management of the royal cat-toy treasury, expeditions throughout the palace, and of course the preservation of her sharp and active mind through playtime and plenty of cat naps. But make no mistake, this young royal makes time in her busy schedule to cuddle mom and dad whenever she can!

Absolutely love that this veterinary office is dedicated solely to the care of cats. Doctors and staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate regarding pets left in their care, lessening any concerns owners may have prior to visiting!

We love coming to the Cat Practice for vet appointments and boarding! My cat has stayed at one other boarding place and was extremely distressed when I picked him up. Every time we come here, he is happy and stress free when I pick him up! Thanks!

- Kristen T.

We have been coming since Cali was a tiny kitty and I would not go anywhere else. We are treated with kindness and friendliness and I very much enjoy going in. It has been the same kind of experience I had with my childrens' pediatric visits.

- Joyce H.

You're all absolute experts on feline health, and you give my cats the very best of care. I wouldn't take my beloved pets anywhere else.

- Laura L.

The knowledge and understanding Dr. Cousins has of felines is outstanding. Being only 1 of 80 in the nation that is specialized in feline practice makes us feel that our fur babies received the upmost care & treatement. Would highly recommend!
