Our Feline Wellness Center is located on the lower level of the Pets Unlimited Care Center on our Pacific Heights Campus at 2343 Fillmore St. This tranquil space provides your cat with a quiet, calming environment free of the noise and stress of a typical veterinary hospital waiting room. Your cat will be seen by one of our cat-approved veterinarians who specialize in the care of feline companions. All our regular Feline Wellness Center veterinarians are active members of the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP).
Did You Know?
Studies show that older cats visit the veterinarian less often than younger cats and that guardians of indoor cats are less likely to place a priority on veterinary care than guardians of outdoor cats. Meanwhile, canine companions are more than twice as likely to visit their veterinarian every year than their feline counterparts!
- Forty-one percent of cat guardians visit the veterinarian only for vaccinations.
- Thirty-nine percent of cat guardians say they would only take their cat to the veterinarian if the cat was sick.
- Sixty percent of cat guardians report that their cat hates going to the veterinarian.
- Thirty-eight percent of cat guardians report that they get stressed just thinking about bringing their cat to the vet.
Wellness exams should occur at least once a year for all cats, and more frequently for senior cats and those with chronic conditions. Felines are masters of disguise and are particularly adept at hiding illness. Whether your cat is primarily indoors or has an occasional outdoor adventure, establishing a healthy baseline and a positive relationship with your veterinarian is critical in ensuring that your cat lives a healthy, happy life.
