Cat Friendly

We go above and beyond for your cat.


Proud to be gold certified!

The Gold Certificate is presented to a practice that “has taken the optimum steps to become a Cat-Friendly Practice by creating a practice that values the feline patient’s distinct needs in both the physical environment of the practice and the way in which medical care is delivered.

In the United States there are millions more owned cats than owned dogs, yet cats receive needed medical care far less frequently than dogs. A major reason is that many cat owners feel it is stressful for them, and their cat, to visit the veterinarian, and often owners believe their cat doesn’t need routine check-ups for wellness and preventive care. The Cat Friendly Practice (CFP) program provides a solution to this trend and provides an opportunity for veterinary practices reduce stress during the visit, thereby improving the opportunity for cats to receive the care their need and deserve.

Cats need regular veterinary exams to establish healthcare plans for longer, happier, and healthier lives. During routine check-ups, we can often detect conditions or disease that may affect your cat’s health before they become painful or harder to treat.
