Litter Box Problems

Litterbox Problems/House Soiling Help Does your cat have house soiling issues? This can be a frustrating problem for your family, so we want to help in whatever ways possible. There are many things we can do to correct house soiling. House soiling is caused by a combination of medical problems such as cystitis, litter box management issues such as litter or boxes the cat does not like, and stress from changes or social issues such as moving, interaction issues between pets or humans, or issues with cats outside. The earlier we intervene the better it is for everyone in the household.

Call us today at (616) 241-6369 to set up an appointment, and please fill out the following form and bring it on your visit. House soiling consultations generally take an hour. Please fill out the house soiling form and bring it with you to your appointment.
