We are here for cats and their people.

Hello!  Here at Coastal Cat Clinic, we believe that the veterinary experience of you and your cat should be outstanding.  We are a cat-only facility with weekday hours, so no barking dogs will be present to scare your kitty.  We pride ourselves on running a punctual appointment schedule, so barring the very rare emergency, you can expect to be seen at your appointment time.  We are small and dedicated to the care of your feline friend.  We do well-patient visits for vaccines, de-worming, flea prevention, and health/surgical consultations.  We also see and treat sick cats and have in-house blood machines and a standard x-ray machine, so that some or all of your testing can be available the same day as your appointment.  We do routine surgeries such as spays and neuters, laser declaws (though we do discourage declawing).  We can also do several non-routine surgeries after consultation.  If something requires more equipment or (wo)man power than we have available, we can refer to several other hospitals in the Wilmington or Triangle area.  We hope you'll give a try when your kitty needs something.

No-kill NC shelters

I have fielded several questions lately from folks needing to re-home pets and those looking to find no-kill shelters in the area.  Sadly, there are none anywhere near here, but this is a link to the no-kill shelters that do exist in NC.  For other help placing a pet, you can see our local rescue group page here.  If you are trying to enlist the help of a rescue group, your chances of success will be greater if your pet is already spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, is recently combo tested, and if you can foster the pet for a while for them as their foster homes tend to become overwhelmed quickly.


Halloween is coming

Soon the scary monsters will be knocking at your door begging for candy.  This can be a very frightening time for especially a nervous pet.  This is a nice article on things you can do to prepare your pets for Halloween, from chocolate issues to anxiety and more.


Wow, 9 years already?

Hard to believe that I've been at this for the last 9 years.  On June 1, 2005, I purchased Coastal Cat Clinic from its previous owner, and I don't think I've ever looked back or regretted the decision.  We have had some hard times, some slim times, but mostly we have had great times here at the clinic as myself and my staff do exactly what we love doing:  caring for cats!  Here's to another 9+ years to come.  Also sort of as an unintended anniversary present, Merial has filled all of its backorders to us for the Purevax feline rabies, so we can continue giving your cat the safest rabies vaccine on the market.
