It’s heartbreaking to think about your pets suffering in silence, but if you own a cat, then you should know they’ll try their hardest to hide their pain. Cats in the wild evolved to hide their pain so they wouldn’t become an easy target for predators. Though your cat may be domesticated, it’d be uncharacteristic of them to go against that instinctive nature to protect themselves, especially when they’re feeling vulnerable. Here are some key signs to tell if you need to take your cat to your vet. At Loveland Veterinary Clinic, our primary goal is to care for your pet in the best way we can.
Let’s face it — there is no foolproof plan to prepare yourself for a pet emergency; after all, that’s why they’re called emergencies. You’re not anticipating your dog to swallow a rubber band, or your cat to have a seizure, and there’s certainly no predicting if or when you’ll have to evacuate your home. But there are certain measures you can take in the event of an accident or natural disaster, so you can shorten the time it’ll take for your pets to get the help they need.
Now that the beginning of a new year is here again, you might be looking at your list of resolutions and wondering where to start. You might also be thinking that it would be nice to have someone you could partner with on these goals, but no one immediately comes to mind. While there might not be a human you could work on these goals with, what about your four-legged friend?
The holiday season is well underway in Northern Colorado, and people are out and about every day, trying to find those perfect gifts for everyone on their list. For some families, the little ones at home have been asking for a puppy or kitten all year long, and the parents may have plans to surprise their kids with a new pet this holiday season. While a dog or cat can be a great present, it’s important to remember that it’s a living creature that needs a lot of care and attention, especially during its first few months in the home. We covered this topic last year, but it’s definitely worth talking about again. At Loveland Veterinary Clinic, we can make sure that your new furry friend is healthy and happy!
Winter weather has definitely arrived in northern Colorado, and at Loveland Veterinary Clinic, we want you and your pets to be safe and warm this season.

In this post, we’ll look at some tips that you can keep in mind as you get your pet prepared for winter!
Now that fall is here, you’re likely looking forward to cooler weather and spending more time at home after the hot days and busy schedule of the summer months. At Loveland Veterinary Clinic, we want your entire family to have a happy and healthy autumn, especially your pets. This season should be a fun and relaxing time for them as well, but there are some things to be aware of as the year grows older. If you ever have any concerns about your pet’s health, then please don’t hesitate to contact us right away!
With August coming to an end, it means that back-to-school time is here once more. Parents and kids are having to adjust to new routines and activities, and everyone is trying to keep up with this time of the year and all that it demands. However, it’s important not to forget how back-to-school time can affect your pets. At Loveland Veterinary Clinic, we’re here to provide expert, compassionate care for your animals whenever they need it.
When people think of cats, they often think about how aloof they can be, as well as how uninterested they often are when it comes to new people. However, there are cats out there that absolutely love people, and want to be near them at all times. If you’ve adopted a cat like this, then you may love how affectionate they are, but there can be drawbacks. For example, your cat may want to play at 2:00 a.m., when all you want to do is sleep. Your cat may also jump up on guests who don’t want them to, which can cause all sorts of issues.
When you bring home a new pet, you take the time to help them acclimatize to their new surroundings. They can meet your family members and any other pets you may own, but you may want to wait on introducing them to your friends and neighbors. While a puppy may be excited to meet everyone, an older dog may be hesitant around strangers. At Loveland Veterinary Clinic, our team is here to help your pets stay happy and healthy, and in this post, we’ll take a look at helping your pet meet new people.
