Cat Speciality Care
At Island Cats Veterinary Hospital”, we offer specialized care for your pet. Our specialty services are here to identify the root cause of your cats issues.

Cat Speciality Care
We work with your cat’s internal body systems, whether the illness is sudden or chronic due to: infection, cancer, degenerative, inflammatory, immune, or trauma. We emphasize minimally-invasive techniques and our advanced diagnostic procedures give us the power to effectively diagnose and treat your pet.
Oftentimes, owners explain that something isn’t right with their cat, and they’re correct 99% of the time. Cats can’t always tell us what’s wrong, you are your cat’s advocate which makes figuring out some pet’s illness truly a team effort. Observing your pet and doing a thorough exam is the next step.
