Welcome to the Pet Centre
Welcome to Mountainview Animal Hospital’s Pet Centre. One of the most important responsibilities of a veterinary hospital is to educate and be the primary source of health care information for pet owners. We take this responsibility seriously, and so we have created this section of the website to provide you with a variety of pet related information.
Parts of this section are dedicated to animal health care tips, some are links and resources to enable you to delve deeper into a subject of interest, and some of this section is to help those pets that have been lost. We hope you can find what you are looking for. As always, if what you need is not here, call us, we will be pleased to help.
Cats are the only domestic animals that walk directly on their claws, not on their paws. This method of walking is called “digitigrade.” When cats scratch furniture, it isn’t an act of malice. They are actually tearing off the ragged edges of the sheaths of their talons to expose the new sharp ones beneath.
