Cat Only Environment and now an AAFP Gold Certified Cat Friendly Practice

At The Cat Clinic everything is geared towards the feline patient. The clinic's atmosphere has undergone many changes and adaptations in order to provide an environment to both help ensure a cat's happiness and contentment while visiting or staying with us but also encourages stress reduction.

To make your cat more comfortable kitty condo's are made of laminate instead of cold reflective metal and we have multiple kenneling area's since many cats don't appreciate being near others. Our examination tables are made of the same material and when your cat is being examined we will make sure there is a thick blanket sprayed with feliway for their comfort.

During appointments to promote a cat's sense of security pheromone therapy will be used. This clinic's one focus also allows our doctors and staff to concentrate on feline topics for conferences and other continuing education.

Dr. Elizabeth O'Brien at The Cat Clinic is a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practiioners (ABVP).

Board Certified Feline Specialist Consultation

Dr. Elizabeth O'Brien is one of a very small group of elite doctors who have earned the title "Diplomate" from the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP).

This means that she went through a very long, very difficult process of additional studies and examination — a process that can take up to three years to complete.

Diplomates must prepare and recertify in their specialty every 10 years. ABVP Diplomates have proven knowledge and expertise above and beyond what is required to practice veterinary medicine.

By having your animals seen by an ABVP Diplomate, you are making sure that they receive expert treatment. By achieving diplomatic status, your veterinarian has proven a strong lasting commitment to providing the best possible care.

The Cat Clinic is a current member of the CVO (College of Veterinarians of Ontario), OVMA (Ontario Veterinary Medical Association), AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners), Cornell Feline Health Centre, ABVP (American Board of Veterinary Practitioners), CVMA (Canadian Veterinary Medical Association), Veterinary Information Network (VIN) and the Hamilton Veterinary Academy.
