About Us

logoThe Cat Doctor is a full service medical and surgical facility exclusively for cats. Established in 1983, in the Art Museum area, the hospital has served the Philadelphia community well for over twenty years, providing excellent comprehensive and compassionate care.   We feel it is a pleasure and privilege to care for your feline family members and will make every effort and attempt to ensure a positive experience for you at our hospital.



We voluntarily sought and received a four year accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).  This means an expert regularly evaluates our practice so that we know we are always complying with veterinary care standards.   It also means you can be sure your cat is receiving the best possible care using the latest procedures and technology.  Cats are our passion, and keeping them healthy is our top priority. Only about 12% of animal hospitals in the U.S. and Canada are accredited by AAHA, and we’re proud to say that we’re one of them!


The Cat Doctor is proud to be certified as a Cat Friendly Practice by the American Association of Feline Practitioners at the Gold Status. This certification reflects our consideration of the unique needs of cats in the waiting and examination rooms, the care we take in handling our feline patients, the attitude and knowledge of our staff, and the comfort and concern we show for cats and their owners.

Welcome to our website, an evolving work in progress.  It was created and will be managed entirely by The Cat Doctor Staff.  Please don’t hesitate to e-mail us with suggestions and feedback and by all means, stop back and visit us often for updates and changes.
