Chico Hospital for Cats opened March 9, 1998. The building was designed specifically to be a feline hospital and won the annual design competition in 2000 from Veterinary Economics magazine. A feature article appeared in the January 2001 issue. The American Animal Hospital Association accredited the hospital as a 4 year feline specialty establishment in 2002.
Dedicated to “Compassionate Health Care Exclusively for Cats”, the hospital employs highly skilled licensed nurses, an efficient and experienced office staff and accomplished assistants. The doctors are committed to feline medicine and focus ample continuing education hours on the special skills required for feline practice. The instruments and equipment are all selected with only cats in mind.
In addition to full service medicine and surgery, the hospital offers a serene and spotless boarding facility featuring views of an outside garden and pond. Each room has a sleeping ledge and a panoramic view. The enclosures are built with materials that do not reflect sound and can be completely sanitized.
