Veterinary Services For Cats

Metairie Small Animal Hospital Offers Exemplary Cat Care

You can view our recent client feedback here.

Metairie Small Animal Hospital offers preventive health care, as well as advanced diagnostic and surgical services. Our commitment to providing quality service is based on our own philosophy of treating your cat as if he or she was our own. After all, we are a group of compassionate, pet-loving people and doctors, which is why the services we provide are a product of our passion, much more so than just our professional pursuits. No matter what kind of cat care you are looking for, our highly experienced and enthusiastic team can help ensure your feline friend gets the attention and care they need.

We Support Every Stage Of Your Cat’s Life

As your cat grows, they will move through six distinct stages of life: 

  • Kitten: 0-6 months
  • Junior: 7 months - 2 years
  • Prime: 3 - 6 years
  • Mature: 7 - 10 years
  • Senior: 11 - 14 years
  • Geriatric: 15+ years

Naturally, as cats grow and progress through life, they will undergo physiological changes and face a variety of life events that will require care and attention. From kitten care to geriatric cat medicine, consistent preventive care can make all the difference in your cat’s quality of life. Ultimately, your cat’s health will impact your relationship with them. 

Cats are very good at hiding illness. In fact, when very ill most cats will simply become less active and interactive. Any signs of illness that a cat may show are typically very subtle. Behavioral changes should warrant a consideration that they may be ill. Subtle changes like the cat not greeting you at the door may be an indication that they are not feeling well. Please call our office should you notice any obvious changes in your cat’s behavior.

24 Hour Cat Care

Accidents, injuries and illnesses never take into account time of day. While some situations can wait until the next morning or business day, others require immediate attention. This is why we offer emergency animal hospital services at our main emergency animal hospital on Metairie Road. Our emergency animal hospital is located at:

101 Metairie Road
Metairie, LA 70005

We Are A Cat-Friendly Hospital

Because the medical needs of cats are unique, our multiple cat hospital locations have dedicated equipment and facilities specific to felines. This includes state-of-the-art tools, as well as cat veterinarians and technicians that are highly trained and professionally skilled in the most modern and effective cat hospital protocols and procedures. Our cat hospital is equipped to handle any medical emergency, treatment protocol or preventative procedure available to ensure your cat’s health and happiness.  

Some of the steps that we take to provide a cat-friendly hospital include:

  • A waiting area just for cats and their owners
  • Feliway diffusers in all cat areas throughout the hospital [Feliway is a synthetic pheromone that has been shown to reduce the stress response in cats]
  • A Cat Committee that meets to discuss how we can become a more cat-friendly practice
  • Towels with Feliway for our nervous cats in the waiting room
