Welcome to The Cat Doctor & Friends
Join Dr. Tracy on a video tour of her award winning feline only veterinary practice.
Thank you to Mark Lowentrout for his hard work creating our video and Rebecca L. Bolam for her professional still photographs that we incorporated into our video.
Utilizing both careful, thorough history taking and physical exams along with digital radiography, ultrasound examination and intraoperative cardiac/respiratory monitors, The Cat Doctor & Friends strives to create a cat and people friendly atmosphere where illness and injuries are rapidly diagnosed and compassionately treated, or better yet prevented. Thirty minute appointments allow our doctors to fully address any nutritional or behavioral concerns.
A common misconception among cat lovers is the assumption that cats who spend their time indoors don't need veterinary care "unless they are sick". Cats who don't come in for annual wellness exams may develop dental disease (since they won't brush their teeth) which can lead to heart, liver or kidney disease. A little preventative care can go a long way. Vaccinations are especially important for kittens, but even indoor cats will need occasional vaccine "boosters" during their adult lives.
Instead of the usual 15 minute appointment, Dr. Tracy McFarland, Dr. Carlie Linger and Dr. Megan Thomas enjoy the luxury of half-hour appointments. Longer appointments allow time spent discussing your nutritional and behavioral concerns in addition to wellness and medical care, surgical or dental diagnosis and treatment. The Cat Doctor & Friends has six comfortable exam rooms, including a "Zen" room where Dr. McFarland, a Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist, performs acupuncture to relieve chronic pain and improve nerve function.
The Cat Doctor & Friends is an award winning feline only veterinary hospital 6 years in a row!
The Cat Doctor & Friends is accredited by AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) & AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners).
