My cats feel comfortable there
Mary Jane McGuire from Philadelphia

I must admit that I have been to a few veterinary practices over the years, but they do not compare to the doctors and staff at the VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia. Just waking into their office I felt comfortable. The staff and technicians there are top notch. They have a way with cats and more importantly, my cats feel comfortable with them from my oldest 20 year old cat down to my 6 year old. I’ve been taking my cats there for quite some time now. I recently had various medical issues with my cats and for the first time saw Dr. Nathanael Oster for their care. As are all the veterinarians there, Dr. Oster is very kind and caring. He called and emailed me with test results and follow-up treatment. I wish my own personal doctor would take as much time with my care as Dr. Oster has taken with my fur babies.
