Cat World

We designed our new hospital specifically with cats in mind, too! We are proud to have Cat World, which is a separate area of the hospital dedicated to only cats. In Cat World, you will be able to wait in our cat only lobby for one of our three dedicated cat-only exam rooms to open up. Better yet, if your cat needs treatments, we have two dedicated cat treatment rooms off of cat world so that your furry friend doesn’t have to go back into the large open treatment room. We bring our supplies and meet your cat in their own private cat-only treatment room.

What It Means To Be Cat Friendly

That means our practice is equipped with specific equipment, staff knowledge, atmosphere and feline handling skills. The American Association of Feline Practitioner (AAFP) developed the Cat Friendly Program (CFP) to help support the ongoing needs of cats. The aim is to reduce the stress on the cat for the visit, improve the quality of care and engage a supportive veterinary team.

A “cat friendly” practice has embraced felines and have taken the extra step to make cats feel at home at the vet. The practice has to pass a comprehensive checklist in order to obtain the accreditation. Our hospital has received the gold level feline friendly certification. This is the highest level of certification available. This shows we have the highest standards for feline care.

Inside Cat World

  • One designated “Cat Advocate” on staff. This individual must attend a two-day cat friendly conference every two years.
  • Three “Cat Only” exam rooms. These rooms have never been used for dogs.
  • Your cat will be placed into an examination room as soon as possible without having to wait in the lobby.
  • Cat pheromones diffused in the room periodically to provide a calming effect
  • Cat specific thermometers that take the temperature via the ear canal and feline only stethoscopes
  • A cat-only scale in the exam room

Feline Vaccinations We Offer:

Our practice only uses non-adjuvanted vaccines for all of our feline patients.

An adjuvant is added to a vaccine to stimulate the immune system to react to the vaccine and thus increase the effectiveness of the vaccine (i.e. to make antibodies to protect your cat in the future). These adjuvants may be linked to a certain type of cancer, fibrosarcoma, in cats. Although it is rare, our practice does not use any adjuvanted vaccines for cats.

We use the Purevax 0.5mL (non-adjuvanted) line of feline vaccines and offer:

  • Purevax Rabies 1-Year
  • Purevax Rabies 3-Year
  • Purevax Feline Distemper
  • Purevax Feline Leukemia

The Purevax 0.5mL vaccines contain the same amount and quality of antigens as the 1.0 ml products. Reducing the volume significantly provides an easier faster and smoother vaccination process.

PUREVAX also provides:

  • Synergistic and broader protection
  • Rapid protection
  • Sustained protection
  • Powerful immune response
