We’re often asked why we chose to treat only feline patients. In one sense, it’s a very easy answer: We love them! We love cats and get a great deal of satisfaction from caring for our patients and helping them to enjoy long, happy, healthy lives with their owners.
But that’s not the only reason. By choosing just one species on which to focus, it allows us to direct all our attention to learning all we can about the diseases and problems of just one animal. We can concentrate our continuing education on more specific issues of cats, and in a feline only practice, we can provide a different kind of veterinary experience for our patients, one without the sights, sounds, and smells of things that may be scary or offensive to them. And having worked in both types of hospitals, we can tell you: cats appreciate the “no dogs” policy!
To further show our dedication to feline patients, Dr. Rucinsky chose to pursue board certification by the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners. The process of board certification is extensive and rigorous, and there are very few people who actually complete this three-year process. By achieving specialist status, she can offer a higher level of service to our clients and patients.
