Our mission is to: 

  • Preserve and enhance the human/animal bond by providing the care needed to maximize the quantity of quality life for our patients for a price owners can afford.
  • Alleviate and prevent animal suffering.
  • Always keep the best interests of our patients in mind. 
  • Provide services that are ethically justified and in the best interest of the patient and their owners.
  • Educate and explain to our clients about the care needed to keep their pets happy and healthy for as long as possible.


We believe that:

  • Pets enrich the human existence.  They enhance the quality of human life and this is the reason why people have pets.
  • Pets need to be healthy and happy to best fulfill this role.
  • Animal life has inherent value and every animal is special and worthy of care, and no animal deserves to suffer no matter how old it is.
  • Pet owners have the right to be informed, to understand what is going on with their pet, and to participate in making decisions about their pet's medical care. 
  • An informed client is in the best position to be able to keep their pet healthy.


We accomplish our mission by: 

  • Having over two decades of experience in treating just cats; knowing cats inside and out.
  • Relying on the art of practice, not just the science of practice, to diagnose and treat disease.
  • Listening carefully to our clients because our patients cannot tell us how they are feeling.
  • Taking whatever time it takes to ensure our clients understand the rationale behind our recommendations and the medical treatment of their pets.
  • Carefully choosing diagnostic tests and therapeutic procedures as needed.
  • Referring to outside specialists as needed in order to ensure our patients are offered the very best of care that modern veterinary medicine has to offer.
