Cat behaviour therapy
Your cat is suddenly unclean, or aggressive and attacks you? And you don’t know what to do? If your cat is clinically healthy, this may be a sign of a behavioural problem. We can help you, and together we can find out why your cat is suddenly behaving differently and how we can change this again.
The first thing we do is examine your cat to make sure it’s completely healthy. If this is the case, we’ll send you a detailed questionnaire so that we can get an initial picture of your cat and its current behaviour. This is followed by a two-hour home visit where we observe your cat to assess the habitat and environment in detail. We will then work with you to develop a strategy to improve your cat’s behaviour through new routines so that your cat feels comfortable again.
Our vet Laurence von Galen specialises in cat behaviour and developed the questionnaire himself. Mr Galen is your contact for all your questions regarding problems with your cats.
Your family pet doctor
From vaccinations to feeding advice to claw trimming, we offer all standard veterinary services during our surgery hours. By providing regular screenings and routine check-ups, we want to work with you to create the conditions to ensure that your four-legged friend has a long and healthy life.
Routine check-ups / Annual screenings
As with humans, a routine check-up once a year is also recommended for animals. We will examine your pet, and in older animals we will also take a closer look at the blood and, if necessary, the heart. Further examinations are only carried out in the event of abnormalities, in order to clarify the patient’s problems in more detail.
Many diseases affect the internal organs, such as the respiratory or digestive system as well as the pancreas, immune or endocrine system.
In many cases, these diseases can be detected through a detailed anamnesis and other diagnostic tools such as blood tests, and can then be treated in a targeted manner.
Vaccinations also provide an important prophylaxis for animals to protect them from infectious diseases. Together with you, we’ll discuss which basic vaccinations we would individually recommend for your pet. We’re happy to create a vaccination record to document each vaccination accurately. With the vaccinations, we follow the recommendations laid down in the German Permanent Veterinary Vaccination Commission’s Guidelines for Vaccinating Small Animals. We will also provide you with detailed advice about the necessary vaccinations when travelling abroad.
Skin conditions such as itching, redness and allergies are often an external sign of a deeper internal problem, for example endocrinological (hormonal) disorders. We take the time to analyse the problem in detail and find the cause to enable the patient to be helped quickly and in the long term.
Parasite control and treatment
Worms, fleas, ticks, mites, lice – parasites are also relatively common in pets. Parasites are not only a nuisance, but can also be dangerous for your pet through transmitting diseases and damaging tissue. We therefore recommend regular screening and check-ups, and will also check whether your pet is infested with parasites (as far as is externally visible) during every visit.
Dietary / Medicated feed
Some diseases require a specific diet for your animals, which can positively support the healing process. We offer special medicinal feeds that are adapted to the respective clinical picture and are, of course, based on the well-being and individual needs of your pet. Simply contact us directly – we’ll be happy to give you a free sample to test.
In addition, we’ll also advise you on the right diet for your pet.
Dogs, cats and ferrets can be identified by a microchip on which the owner’s name and address are registered. The chip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted on the left side of your pet’s neck with the help of a syringe and with little pain. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
Wanting to travel with your pet? For a relaxed journey, we will provide you with the necessary travel profiles and veterinary certificates, and will be pleased to advise you on what you need to consider when travelling with your pet.
Care for chronically ill patients
Chronically ill patients are also very dear to our hearts, because they often need intensive care and close support. We’re happy to take the time to provide gentle but intensive treatment, and will help you find a suitable strategy for providing care at home.
Supporting elderly pets / palliative care
Elderly pets often need particularly intensive and loving care. Even despite weak joints and a frail heart, we can give your pet a high quality of life with the right treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, we’d be delighted to be your contact and take care of your pet.
Saying a final farewell
Unfortunately, we cannot help all our patients. Sometimes a tough decision has to be made. When there’s no more hope and your pet is suffering, it’s time to face your responsibility and accept the limits of what is medically feasible. This is also difficult for us as vets.
When it’s time to say a final farewell, we don’t want to leave you alone. We will advise, inform and support you as best we can. We can also come to your home to perform the euthanasia. Talk to us about a suitable date.
We work together with the Rosengarten animal burial services in Berlin. All animals that remain with us are cremated there. Alternatively, you’re welcome to choose your own pet undertaker.
