About Cats and Critters

Pets are members of your family. When you have to be away from them you want to know that they are still getting the best care possible. Cats and Critters is here to help put your mind at ease.  Some pets require extra attention and that's where our expertise comes in.  Exotic pets have a variety of husbandry requirements depending on the species. It helps to have someone who is familiar with those requirements and can ensure that those requirements are fulfilled. Other pets may have special needs such as medication or subcutaneous fluid administration or other medical issues that require attention. Having an experienced veterinary technician capable of attending to a pet's medical needs is essential to caring for your special pet when you are away.
