We feel that cats are part of the family. Our clients' response to the care we provide is the strongest testament to the quality of care we provide for their cats. You can find some of our client feedback here.
Our practices offer preventative health care as well as advanced diagnostic and surgical services. In addition, our dedication to quality service in the care of cats is a tremendous source of our “pride”!
As your feline friend grows, they will move through six distinct stages of life:
Naturally, as a cat grows and progresses through life, it will undergo physiological changes and face a variety of life events that will require care and attention. From kitten care to geriatric cat medicine, consistent preventive care can make all the difference in the quality of life of your cat. Ultimately, your cat's health will impact your relationship with them.
Cats are very good at hiding illness. In fact, most cats will simply become less active and less interactive when very ill. Any signs of illness that a cat may show will be very subtle. Any change in their behavior should warrant a consideration that they may be ill. Many clients will return from work to find that their cat simply does not greet them at the door as usual. This may be an indication that your cat is ill. Because the signs of cat illness are so subtle, if you should notice any obvious changes in behavior please call our office.
Because the medical needs of cats are unique, our cat hospital utilizes specialized equipment, the training of employees, and facilities specific to felines. We have two primary cat examination rooms, and we minimize stress by providing soft, cozy surfaces which will allow your cat to feel safe and secure.
Our staff is trained to allow cats to move at their own pace, which allows them to feel less stress during their visit to our hospital. Cats have special needs when it comes to exploring new environments. We understand the needs of cats: how they need to be “catered” to and how to keep their stress to a minimum. While we cannot make all cats feel completely at home, we can help all cats to feel safe and comfortable during their visit.
Our veterinary practices specialize in meeting the diverse array of feline needs, including:
At Northeast Animal Hospital and Downtown St. Pete Vet Clinic, we specialize in the following cat health services for cats of all ages, breeds, and circumstances:

Our success as a cat-friendly hospital is a reflection of the health and happiness of our patients and clients. From preventive medicine to comprehensive illness and disease intervention, our cat hospital staff will ensure that your next visit will resonate with care, respect, transparency, and compassion.
