We Understand Cats
Our Mission: Saving the World One Cat at a Time!
Unique and awe-inspiring creatures, they grace us by accepting us into their lives and allowing us the privilege of caring for them.
“Cats Are Not Small Dogs.”
Cats are a unique species with unique medical needs. Effective feline healthcare must be based on understanding that uniqueness. As dedicated feline-exclusive professionals, our knowledge of feline-specific health and medicine informs everything we do for you and your cat.
Cats Are Our Passion
The Feline Healthcare Team at the Uniquely Cats® Veterinary Center is motivated by a deep passion for cats — for helping cats to live healthy lives, for helping sick cats to get better, for nurturing the human-feline bond, and for sharing our knowledge and the joy of feline health and happiness. We are dedicated to providing the most thorough, compassionate and advanced care to each individual cat entrusted to our care.
Our cat care, whether provided in the feline-friendly, homelike environment of our brand-new state-of-the-art hospital or in your home, emphasizes disease prevention through species-appropriate nutrition, wellness care, risk-based vaccination plans, environmental enrichment and stress management. We are expert in the diagnosis and compassionate treatment of feline disorders.
Every Cat Is Unique
We understand that every cat, cat parent, and cat home dynamic is unique. Our doctors and staff will work with you as a team to find the most effective path, for you and your cat, to good health and a happy life together.
Our Founder and Medical Director, Dr. Fern Slack, brings over 25 years of experience of feline-only veterinary care and a deep and abiding love of cats to the Uniquely Cats® Veterinary Center.
ALL THINGS FELINE
Stuff Cat Parents Want To Know
Dr. Fern’s philosophy to cat medicine starts with one simple truth: “Education is the first line of defense for our feline friends.” As you get to know the cat vets at Uniquely Cats® Veterinary Center you will see that there is a difference in the approach taken from that of corporate and institutional medicine. Each cat and their human have a unique relationship. It is our goal to help you better understand that relationship and in turn provide you with a better understanding of your feline friend.
We will continue to publish new articles to help you become a better cat parent. Remember you have been entrusted with the care and well being of your more transient feline friend. Your education will help extend their temporal journey through your life.
We love our cats and we want them to live long and healthy lives. To do this, we need to know when our cat isn’t feeling well. The biggest challenge faced by devoted cat parents is this: cats are terrible at telling us when they don’t feel well. Cats hide everything.
When vaccinating your cat, you must weight the benefits of vaccination against the risks. Once you decide to vaccinate your cat, you can learn how to minimize the risks.
Cats are not small dogs. Unlike dogs, cats are obligate carnivores . They differ in dietary and habitat needs, organ function, behavior and more. Feline Health depends on veterinarians that understand the truly unique nature of cats.
