Compassion Driven…

Wellness Care and Prevention

We recommend bi-annual wellness exams for all feline life stages. Subtle changes may occur quickly and sick or suffering cats often show no sign of distress or disease. What we see as an occasional vomiting problem may be masking an underlying change in metabolism, gastro-intestinal, liver, kidney or pancreas disease. Earlier detection body weight changes, dental disease, and so on, allow for early intervention and a much improved success rate for recovery. If we see you twice annually we can address frequent common problems, behavior or attitude changes, and provide education about preventive health care. We want to help you improve the quality of life for you and your cat and reduce the long term expenses associated with your cat’s health care. If you find yourself wondering if there is a problem, it is probably real; the emergency room is not the place to find out.

Ask us how to enroll in our bi-annual program and reduce your chances of ever finding yourself after hours or on a weekend seeking guidance and emergency care.

When you need more…

We maintain facility certifications to bring you the most complete emergency, laboratory, and diagnostic testing available in any cat only facility in Georgia. We offer full radiography, cardiology, and detailed dental health consultations and evaluations. We work closely with board-certified veterinarians and affiliates at major veterinary teaching facilities to bring you essential feline-specific diagnostic recommendations to make your medical decisions. Our consulting specialists help us guide you when you have to make critical decisions regarding the care of your baby, often without leaving our facility.

Other Services

We offer diagnostic testing for further analysis in your search for support and answers: surgical biopsies, bladder stone removal, dental extractions, ultrasound-guided biopsies, endoscopy, otoscopy, rhinoscopy and cystoscopy. Our feline-only, AAHA certified, cat-friendly gold certified facility offers cold laser and regional nerve blocks to ensure your cat’s recovery from any procedure is as pain and stress free as possible.

Boarding and Grooming

Our condominium boarding is available year round. Many owners notice less emotional distress when their cats stay with us, especially when long trips are required.

Our comfortable kitty condos have several shelves of vertical space and lots of sunshine. Feedings are up to three times daily and litter boxes are completely cleaned twice daily or more if needed. Our guests are treated to full room service, including turn down bedding service, fresh meals delivered every morning & evening, and a nightly complementary catnip or other treat for those who enjoy such things.

Our grooming services ranging from nail trims and soft-paw applications, to sanitary shaves and lion cuts. All cats must be current on vaccinations for our staff to provide grooming services and some cats will require sedation for these services. Please call us to discuss your needs in detail. A bad haircut can make for a bad day…

Special Needs or Medical Boarding

With the advantages of a full veterinary hospital just a step away, our boarders are given daily medications when needed. Often cats with chronic medical conditions, geriatric & diabetic patients need special accommodations—Call us to discuss your needs and concerns and our fees for these additional services. We want you to know your best options for care while staying with us.

We ask that all boarding guest be current on Rabies and respiratory virus vaccinations, have a negative fecal screen within the calendar year or allow us to obtain one while boarding at Cat Care. Furthermore, we require a negative Felv/FIV test as an adult cat (over 6 months of age). If your cat is indoor/outdoor, we require the same minimum vaccinations, fecal testing, a flea treatment if not on any monthly treatment or has signs of flea infestation, and an annual test for Felv/FIV on record.

When you need to let go…

Letting go is never an easy decision and is rarely an obvious choice. Cat Care of Vinings is committed to supporting you when the questions are difficult and the answers are painful. If something is different: appetite, attitude, or activity, even subtle changes… let us know. Cats are “ninjas” about hiding things until they are quite sick. We are cat people and know how difficult it can be to know if it is time; let us help you make good care decisions for your little one.

…We must say that Dr. Jennifer Palmer…is the BEST. Her medical experience, bedside manner, candor, and quest for knowledge…is immeasurable. She goes beyond the call of duty to ‘reach-out’ for answers and health options you may not be aware of.

Dr. Michael Friedlander is experienced, capable, kind, and caring with my cat and with me. Her staff is also excellent. Besides the excellent care for my cat, Michael also educated me on what I need to do to take care of my cat, such as vaccinations and heart worm prevention. This is a top notch feline veterinary hospital with a top notch staff!
