Working couples and retirees, as well as other families and singles, have discovered that cats are wonderful companions.

Some cats are quiet and appear somewhat independent, but all cats need and want attention. Also, most cats can adapt to a variety of environments.

A cat's air of independence does not mean that it can take care of all its own needs. Cat owners have important responsibilities such as providing food and water, social interaction, and changing the litter box regularly. Remember, cats have only one life, not nine!

The facilities are sparkling clean and they even have a cold laser machine (which is doing wonders for Zeke's arthritis) My fur kids have never gone so happily and willingly the vet! I am completely confident in giving Phoenix Veterinary Center a 5 star rating and recommending them to anyone looking for a vet!"

  • "My cat is notoriously difficult to handle, so I was very nervous about bringing him in. But Dr. Roe and Rachel, one of her technicians, were so calm with him that he calmed right down! They were so gentle and steady when performing his tests and treatments that he allowed them to do everything. Their prices were extremely reasonable and Dr. Roe explained everything to me very clearly. She also worked with me to achieve the most care for my budget. Phoenix Veterinary Center has won my heart and the trust of my cat. I highly recommend that everyone gives them a try!"
