Pet Name: Snickerdoodle

When I adopted a little tiny 5 year old cat, whom I named Snickerdoodle, from the SPCA a few months ago, it was noted that she had gingivitis. I failed to notice that. Well, it got out of control, and she stopped eating for 4 or 5 days. I brought her in to see Dr. Waller for a second opinion. She examined Snickerdoodle and then sat down with me to explain all my options in a very gentle concerned tone. She gave my kitty a shot of Kenalog to ease the pain and inflammation in her mouth and sent me on my way to consider all my options. I also talked to her on the phone two more times after that concerning my kitty's life longevity. She was kind and reassuring. I picked up the antibiotics she recommended. I am hoping for a long loving and playful life with my kitty, Snickerdoodle (Snickers). The staff at the front desk are also kind and caring. All in all, I really like the ambiance in the office. And the staff and doctors of course!!

The Very Best Care for my Family

-Judy Cornelius from Reno, NV
Pet Name: Whiskers

My relationship with this practice began in 2004 when my nearly 20 year old cat, Curious, developed a lump on the side of her mouth. The vet I had been using told me to bring the cat in that afternoon and we would put her down. He hadn't seen her or her blood tests that had been the night before at the emergency vet service. I left there and never returned. I already had found Dr. Thompson and this unique Kitty Only practice. All I wanted for my kitty to receive compassionate care and consideration. That was delivered ten fold. Dr. T operated on her and she had another 6 months of quality life thanks to him. All of my cats have since been under the care of this wonderful practice. Some of my adoptees who were more feral than domestic have returned to me quite socialized and become some of my most loved family members. Dr. T and the staff have grieved with me when I've lost my some of my babies over the years. Everyone appreciates how valued these family members are to me and have always treated each one as important. The office is calm and the office kitties add to the atmosphere. I am so grateful to not have to share the space with dogs. I am always confident that my kitties get the very best of care and concern when I take them to VCA Feline Medical Center. I would recommend it - and do often - to any kitty owner.

VCA FMC and staff are lifesavers!

-Barbara Freeman from Sparks, NV
Pet Name: Sophie

I have been taking my two cats, Teddie and Sophie, to Feline Medical Center for years. Though all the doctors have been and are terrific, Dr. Thompson holds a special place in my heart. He, along with the rest of the wonderful staff helped to replace my panic with surety when Teddie had to have ear surgery and when Sophie had a serious respiratory virus. I have and always will trust them with my beloved pets. Last week when I brought Sophie in for her annual exam, Dr. Thompson told me how important it was for me to administer some tough love in order to find the cause of her horrible skin allergies. It's been quite an adjustment and she misses her treats but I didn't doubt him for a minute. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone at VCA Feline Medical Center!


-Kathy Doyle from Reno, NV
Pet Name: Lily

I adopted an 11 year old cat from the SPCA and have been taking her to VCA for the past year. The staff is very professional, courteous and friendly. The atmosphere is very relaxed with the office cats roaming the waiting area. They have taken exceptional care of Lily, she has skin allergies and with the help of steroid shots it has been manageable and she is much more comfortable. I board her periodically and I know she is in good hands while I am out of town. Thanks to the Doctors and staff for taking such good care of her.

Thomas vs. Coyote

-Joanne Harris from Reno, NV

I can not tell you how wonderful the VCA Feline Medical Center was in saving a stray cat that we adopted. Our boys name is Thomas Luis Jorge O'Malley. He is a scrappy alley cat. He went to my daughters door step where having tried for months to take him, in he allowed her to gather him up. She realized he had been injured and took him to VCA. After being in a fight with a coyote and making it out alive, Dr. Thompson said he it had probably been four days since he had been injured and probably would not have lasted much longer. It took about 7 weeks, and four of them staying at the center to get Tom strong enough to come home. From there Tom spent almost a month in an enclosed area so that he would not try to jump and pull out his stitches. He was a very good boy. Now he spends his days sleeping on the big bed in the sun. I can see it on his face, he is so happy now to have a home.

SLATE- Our grey cat

-Elizabeth and Robert Fulton from Reno, NV
Pet Name: Slate

Our cat is approaching 16 and has had great care from the staff at VCA Feline Medical Center for the last 7 years since we've lived in Reno. He recently has lost a lot of weight and the staff has treated him with great love and care. While we know we won't have him a whole lot longer his quality of life is better because of their care.

Purrfect Place

-Karen Myrehn from Reno, NV
Pet Name: Chubbs and Annie

Our cats have been patients here, mainly with Dr. Scott Thompson, for about 20 years. We recently adopted 2 abandoned kittens (with feral parents), and our first check-up was as expected: caring and thorough. They both recently had a bout with GI tract upset and both were treated with on-the-spot treatment, with some hospital stay, and great feedback. Feline Medical Center is our first choice for kitty care (even though it's not a quick drive from another part of town). Dr. Thompson and the whole staff (the support staff at the phones and to answer quick questions via phone) is considerate with impressive follow-through. Dr. T even calls after-hours to give additional information, and to check-in with the kitties' current status. Dr. Waller is also excellent. When our kittens were released, she gave us a complete over-view of their situation and progress/prognosis. She is very personable and willing to answer any questions or concerns. We had many new options for kitty care, and always knew that this place was the best for our kittens/cats to receive up-to-date and state-of-the-art care. You guys are the BEST!!
