Cat Friendly Practice

We know how to speak cat!

In the United States, more cats are owned than dogs, and it’s important to create a safe space for them when they visit their veterinary hospital.

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.

At Hometown Veterinary Clinic, we understand the unique needs of our feline patients. In fact, we care so much about making sure cats receive the medical attention they need and deserve that we’ve become a cat-friendly practice.

Our entire team has received specialized training to be able to understand and address the unique needs of cats. This includes techniques to reduce anxiety and special products that will help to calm your cat and keep them stress-free. Your kitty will be handled with tender, loving care by our experienced staff.

The truth is, even cats that seem perfectly healthy – including those who live exclusively indoors – can benefit from regular checkups. With the cat-friendly care at Hometown Veterinary Clinic, you can ensure that your feline family member enjoys a long, happy and healthy life. Best of all, you’ll both get the peace of mind that comes with receiving this kind of stress-free care.

If you would like to discuss options for your cat’s next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
