Why a Cat-Only Practice is Best for Your Feline Family Member

Many cats do not see their veterinarian on a consistent basis, which leaves them much more vulnerable to illness. Cats are not known for making their ailments obvious, and this makes delaying veterinary appointments all the more dangerous. As a cat-only practice, we work hard to improve the area of feline medicine and help more cats stay healthy. We know that cats can become highly stressed when taken out of their day-to-day environment, which in turn makes transport a major challenge for cat owners.
In addition to being a cat-only hospital, our staff members are also well trained in cat-friendly handling techniques, treatment methods, and other strategies designed to put cats more at ease. If your cat is well overdue for their checkup, consider our Certified Cat Friendly Practice. In addition to being Certified Cat Friendly, we are also one of only 80 Board-Certified Feline Specialists in the country.

We love coming to the Cat Practice for vet appointments and boarding! My cat has stayed at one other boarding place and was extremely distressed when I picked him up. Every time we come here, he is happy and stress free when I pick him up! Thanks!

We have been coming since Cali was a tiny kitty and I would not go anywhere else. We are treated with kindness and friendliness and I very much enjoy going in. It has been the same kind of experience I had with my childrens' pediatric visits.
