News and Information
Brantford’s only Gold Standard Feline Friendly Practice
It can be stressful for both you and your cat to visit the veterinarian. The veterinary visit starts before you even arrive at the veterinary clinic with trying to get your cat in the carrier and the car ride to the practice. 58% of cat owners report that their cat hates going to the veterinarian and 38% report they get stressed just thinking about bringing their cat to the practice. At the Charing Cross Cat Clinic we strive to reduce stress associated with veterinary visits. To learn more about why you and your cat will love a Cat Friendly Practice Read More
Introducing our new locum veterinarian, Dr. Christina McRae.
Dr. McRae will be filing in some days over the coming months so that Dr. St. Denis can continue lecturing at conferences, as well as possibly taking vacation!
We are excited to have her join us!
About Dr. McRae:
“I grew up in Oshawa, Ontario, and knew from a young age that I loved both animals and medicine. I graduated in 1990 from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, and practiced in Orillia, Bowmanville, and Oshawa. During that time, I found myself fascinated with my feline patients and their particular personalities, quirks, and interesting diseases. I became more and more disenchanted with how the special needs of these unique creatures were often overlooked in a busy, noisy, dog-centred practice, so in 1995, I opened King Street Cat Hospital. It was the first veterinary clinic just for cats between Toronto and Ottawa. Over the years, I learned so much from my patients and their owners. As a veterinarian, I am constantly reading, researching, and attending lectures and courses for my continuing education, but my best teachers were always my patients. I loved working with cats and their people, so it was very difficult when I decided to sell my practice in 2015, but it was time for me to do something new. I went back to school and studied Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine and Acupuncture. Now, I work a couple of days a week at practices near my home north of Toronto, I work one or two days a week as a surgeon for the Toronto Humane Society, and I have a small mobile acupuncture practice, mostly for horses. I also volunteer for the Veterinary Information Network, a professional education and support internet community for veterinarians. In my spare time, I enjoy riding my horse, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my husband. I am very excited to be returning to feline practice at Charing Cross Cat Clinic, and look forward to meeting you and your furry family members soon.”
Your Cat’s Behaviour
Behavior problems are a leading cause of pets being surrendered or euthanized. These problems often occur in cats because their needs have not been fully met. Cats need resources to perform their natural behaviors and have control over their social interactions. As owners, we can enhance our cats health and wellbeing by ensuring all their needs are met at home.

How-to Trim Your Cat’s Nails
Trimming your cats nails can be easy and a part of a regular routine and bonding moment with your cat. Starting your cat’s nail trimming very young, when they are kittens, is best. However, this does not mean that you cannot work with an adult cat to be able to successfully trim their nails. Learn More
