Welcome to Cashua Veterinary Care

Pet ownership is an adventure that comes with certain responsibilities. Looking out for your pet’s health and welfare is an essential part of those responsibilities. Maintaining the health of your pet involves working with an experienced, trustworthy veterinarian. At Cashua Veterinary Care, you will benefit from the skill and experience of Dr. Kate and her dedicated veterinary team in caring for your pet. Our comprehensive pet care services will keep your pet in the best of health for years to come.

Who We Are

Cashua Veterinary Care is your one-stop-shop for veterinary care services that can enhance the health and wellness of your pet. Your furry friend will receive comprehensive, conscientious pet care. Our team has a genuine love for pets which is reflected in their loving treatment of animals in our care. When you bring your pet to us, you can have full confidence that he or she will receive the best of care.


For your convenience, we offer a wide range of services to improve your pet’s health, starting with preventive care. Preventive care is designed to keep your pet healthy by preventing sickness and disease. The first step toward improved health is a pet wellness exam. We suggest that pets receive a wellness exam annually so our veterinarian can monitor their health and discuss treatment options when needed.

During an annual exam, one of our veterinarians will record your pet’s weight, growth, and development. Then we will inspect your pet from nose to tail to look for any early warning signs of sickness or disease. Early detection and treatment can prevent health problems from developing into major medical issues.

Our clinic also offers vaccinations, flea and tick prevention, parasite control, spay and neuter surgeries, microchipping, dental exams, and teeth cleanings as part of our preventive care services. If your pet is experiencing skin problems, we will test your pet for environmental or food allergies.


In addition to spay and neuter procedures, we perform soft tissue surgeries to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal conditions as well as orthopedic surgeries to treat joint problems. We use laser therapy treatments to help your pet heal after surgery.

Emergency Pet Care

When emergencies happen, contact Cashua Veterinary Care for emergency veterinary treatment. This includes broken bones from car accidents, accidental poisoning, lacerations from animal fights, and other urgent medical situations. We also perform emergency surgeries, when needed.

We would like to announce that as of June 15, 2020, we will be transitioning to opening fully for our clients.  We will be allowing clients in the building while maintaining the following strict social distancing guidelines:

Our goal is to continue to keep our clients and our team members safe and healthy. We understand that some of these guidelines may be inconvenient, but we ask for your patience and compliance during this stressful time.
