Click here for our latest COVID updates.

Thank you for continuing to be patient with us as we navigate these strange and challenging times. We have now reopened our waiting room to clients who want to come in for appointments or pick up food or medication. Our waiting room limit is six people, and masks are still required regardless of vaccination status. Our exam rooms are not yet open for in-person appointments due to their extremely small size and recent reports of the rapid spread of COVID 19 variants.

If you would like to come into the clinic, we will have a veterinary assistant meet you in the waiting room to take a history. You then have the option of hanging out in the waiting room or running an errand during the time of your cat’s exam. If you decide to stay in the waiting room, the doctor can speak with you in person after the exam. If you prefer to run an errand, the doctor will give you a call after the completion of the exam.

Curbside service is still available if you would like to limit contact. If you prefer curbside service, please stay in your car and call or text us when you arrive in the parking area on the day of your visit. We will have a veterinary assistant complete the history over the phone. We will then meet you in front of the clinic to get your pet and its carrier. We ask that you stay nearby and keep your phone readily accessible for curbside appointments. Most appointments are 45 minutes long.

If your cat is here for a drop-off visit, you can return home until the doctor contacts you to discuss their exam findings and projected pick-up time.

For all interactions with our staff, masks are still required regardless of vaccination status.

Cat Surgery Services

Our hospital is outfitted with cutting-edge equipment and our knowledgeable team is experienced in the most modern surgical techniques. More importantly, we always adhere to the strictest standards of safety and care.

Safety Is Our Priorty

At Island Cats Veterinary Hospital, we can perform a variety of surgeries your cat could need or find the right specialist to help with the operation.

Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable throughout recovery.

Making sure our patients remain safe during surgery and other medical procedures is extremely important to us. We closely monitor every procedure, regardless of whether it is routine or more advanced.


Some of the many surgeries routinely performed in our state of the art surgical suite include:

  • Dental Procedures
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Mass Removals
  • Wound Repairs

This is a limited list. Please call us if you have specific surgical questions.

Surgery After Care

Once your pet’s procedure is complete, we will gently move them to the recovery area of our hospital, where we will continue to monitor them as the anesthesia begins to wear off. A member of our staff will contact you to let you know how the surgery went and arrange a time for you to come retrieve your pet. When you arrive, we’ll go over our aftercare instructions, which may include a customized pain management plan to help make the recovery process as comfortable as possible for your pet.

After returning home with your loved one, should any questions or concerns arise about the surgery or recovery process, please do not hesitate to call us. Help is always just a phone call away!
