Welcome to The Cat Practice

Whether your cats are playing around the home or just cuddling with you on the couch, you want to give your cats the best life and protect them from harm.

A Trusted Cat Clinic for Your Pets’ Needs

Because we only treat cats, you can feel confident that you're getting the highest level of veterinary care dedicated to protecting your cats from harm, helping them have a great quality of life for the long term. Our cat clinic focuses on the overall health of your pets, from offering cat dental care to giving you support and insight from a veterinarian. Whether your kitties need a checkup or they have medical issues that need to be addressed, coming to us is the right choice.

Cat Spaying and Cat Neutering Services

With our cat spaying and cat neutering options, you can take good care of your cats’ health by protecting them from reproductive system cancers and related health problems. It's important to spay and neuter pets for population control, but many people don't realize that it also helps your cats feel better and stay healthier. It may reduce some undesirable behaviors like roaming and spraying, as well.

Allergy Treatment for Cats

We offer cat allergy treatment and options from our veterinary team because we know that cats, just like people, can have allergies to certain things. It could be something in their food or their environment, and it's not always possible to change everything around them to avoid the allergen. Getting a new food isn't always difficult, but if your cats are allergic to an environmental trigger they may need allergy treatment and support for skin conditions and itching.

  • "Dr. Lori takes amazing care of my crew. She's always patient with my questions, even when I'm a nervous Nelly. I love that the practice is cats only. I've taken my cats to a "mixed" species vet, but they were never as comfortable as they are at The Cat Practice."
