Quality Cat Care You Can Trust

If you live anywhere in Tampa Bay there’s no better place to bring your feline friends than The Cat Doctors of Tampa Bay Animal Hospitals.

At The Cat Doctors, we put cats first. We know they are every bit a part of your family as any person is, so we take care of them like they are a part of our family, too.

You don’t have to worry about your feline friend becoming over-stressed with all the scents and sounds of dogs barking or being distracted by other small creatures… at The Cat Doctors, cats are all we do. We work with you and your pets, focusing on education and prevention, to help your cats live their lives to the very fullest.

We are proud to deliver the highest standard in compassionate and comprehensive feline care! We are the one-stop-shop for cat owners from South Tampa, Hyde Park, Davis Island, Bayshore, and across the greater Sunshine State.

Avoiding Cat-Astrophy

Cats are known for hiding their symptoms from their pet owners until they are well and truly sick — this is one of the main reasons we prioritize preventative care. It can’t be overstated, wellness checks are one of the key ways we keep your cats happy and healthy.

Whether you’ve just taken on the wonderful responsibility of a new kitten, or you’re caring for a lifetime companion, we know exactly what your cat needs for their stage of life and unique circumstances. You can count on us to prepare vaccinations and other preventative treatments based on your cat’s specific needs.

We are transparent when it comes to talking about your cat’s care. The veterinarian-client relationship is precious to us, and we greatly appreciate your trust.

We offer you to look at our list of services to discover what we can do for your cat. If you have any questions, you can give us a call at 813-448-7720 and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Feel free to ask any questions you may have, we’ll be happy to answer them!

Don’t take our word for it,
here are some of our reviews!
I’ve known the Cat Doctors for around 20+ years now. They've cared for my cats through all life stages with compassion and world-class feline health care. Their professionalism is purrfect! If only human health care were this good! Meet Cleo and Nadine, two happy clients who LOVE the Cat Doctors!
Professional, truly caring, compassionate, friendly team with excellent communication regarding my pets. Dr. Simon goes above and beyond to care for my furbabies. I had taken Bernadette in recently for dental cleaning, scaling, and x-rays. I felt at ease leaving her with their team members. They are knowledgeable and respectful when dealing with your cats. I highly recommend the Cat Doctors.
I’m new to the area and wasn't sure where to take my cats for their yearly exams. I was referred to Cat Doctors - and specifically to Dr. Vetter. Simply put, THEY’RE AWESOME. I felt Dr. Vetter had my cat’s best interest at heart, the prices were competitive, and she explained everything in a way that I could understand. I don’t plan on going anywhere else. I believe this vet clinic provides the best care for my two girls.
