elcome to The Cat Practice, the first exclusively feline veterinary hospital in the United States. Founded in 1972, The Cat Practice has been a leading provider of feline healthcare to Manhattan’s cat community for over forty years. We are a pioneer in feline medicine and have a brand new, state of the art facility in the heart of Chelsea.
We offer a variety of veterinary services for your cat at any age, whether it is a kitten or an adult cat. Our veterinarians are able to help you understand the unique healthcare needs of domestic cats, an animal that is often misunderstood due to their stoic nature. Since cats are hunters and are able to hide their illnesses very well, our staff has learned to speak for them and to hear their concerns.
Our medical services have a wide range from routine physical exams and vaccinations, to diagnostics like blood work, fecal analysis and urinalysis, radiographs (x-rays), ultrasounds, echocardiograms, and blood pressure. We provide surgical procedures such as dentals, spays and neuters, biopsies, and endoscopies, and we are also one of the few facilities that offer minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. We even offer baths, grooming, and nail trims for your cat! Nail trims are free of charge at The Cat Practice, so feel free to schedule a trim for your cat anytime!
The Cat Practice is a licensed supplier of numerous prescription diets for a variety of ailments. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions regarding your cat’s current diet and possible remedies. The Cat Practice also works with your pet insurance company to ensure that your cat receives the best healthcare available at an affordable price.
Another special feature of The Cat Practice is that we offer cat-only boarding. We are pleased to welcome your beloved felines to stay at our exceptional facility, open seven days a week. If your cats need to be with us for a couple days or a couple months, we are happy to care for them! Please call to schedule your boarding visit with us!
We are located at 145 West 24th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Please call 212-677-1401 to schedule an appointment with our veterinarians Monday through Saturday.
