GROOMING & BATHING
WE ARE A “CAT-FRIENDLY” HOSPITAL
SPVC is one of the first 25 veterinary hospitals in the country to be designated a CATalyst Council "Cat Friendly" hospital. We separate cat waiting rooms, exam rooms, and boarding facilities. We also use cat-soothing pheromone products from Feliway, which helps cats feel calm and comfortable during their stay. Feel free to stop by, tour our practice, and meet our veterinarians and staff. We are always happy to meet people who care about their pets as much as we do. READ MORE
