Preventive Care for Cats
Help your cat live a longer, happier life.
We offer both routine wellness care as well as advanced diagnostic and surgical services for cats. Because the medical needs of cats are unique, our cat hospital utilizes specialized equipment, the training of employees, and facilities specific to felines. We aim to be “fear-free” for your cat by offering a separate cat entrance, two primarily cat examination rooms, and soft, cozy surfaces to help your cat feel safe and secure.
We feel that cats are part of the family. Our client's response to the care we provide is the strongest testament to the quality of care we provide for their cats.
We Support Every Stage of Your Cat's Life
As your feline friend grows, they will move through six distinct stages of life:
- Kitten: 0 to 6 months
- Junior: 7 months to 2 years
- Prime: 3 to 6 years
- Mature: 7 to 10 years
- Senior: 11 to 14 years
- Geriatric: 15 years and over
Naturally, as a cat grows and progresses through life, it will undergo physiological changes and face a variety of life events that will require care and attention. From kitten care to geriatric cat medicine, consistent preventive care can make all the difference in the quality of life of your cat. Ultimately, your cat's health will impact your relationship with them.
Cats are very good at hiding illness. In fact, most cats will simply become less active and less interactive when very ill. Any signs of illness that a cat may show will be very subtle. Any change in their behavior should warrant a consideration that they may be ill. Many clients will return from work to find that their cat simply does not greet them at the door as usual. This may be an indication that your cat is ill. Because the signs of cat illness are so subtle, if you should notice any obvious changes in behavior please call our office.

Cats have special needs when it comes to exploring new environments. We understand the needs of cats: how they need to be “catered” to and how to keep their stress to a minimum. While we cannot make all cats feel completely at home, we can help all cats to feel safe and comfortable during their visit.
