The Cat Doctor welcomes you to our website!

"So first, your memory I'll jog,
And say:  A CAT IS NOT A DOG."
-T.S. Eliot, in Old Possums's Book of Practical Cats

The Cat Doctor in Santa Rosa, CA is a full service veterinary hospital exclusively for cats established in 1987.  Cats are not small dogs, and feline medicine has become a specialized field.  Dr. Alice Simpson and her staff have a special interest in cats and feline medicine.   Focusing on cats exclusively allows us to attain a higher level of expertise and experience about the unique needs and problems of the feline species which, in many cases, are different than those of dogs.  We know cats inside and out.  Because we only see cats, we can provide a quiet, comfortable environment where cats can feel at home and safe.  

It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life of your cat. Our services are designed to provide routine preventive care for healthy kittens and cats including vaccinations, spay and neuter surgery, and dental care; early detection and treatment of disease as your cat ages; and complete medical, dental, and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.

At this site, you will find information about out practice, our practice philosophy, our services, helpful forms to assist you, and an extensive Pet Medical Library for you to search for additional pet health care information.

The first step in getting veterinary care for your cat is getting it to the vet!  It doesn't have to be a traumatic experience.  Click on Getting Your Cat to the Veterinarian for valuable tips including videos on how to teach your cat to like, not hate, a carrier.
