Facility Cat

Why choose ARC for your cat?

ARC is staffed with veterinary specialists/consultants in multiple disciplines. As in human medicine, veterinary specialists must undergo extensive training beyond that of the basic veterinary degree. This allows them to provide advanced veterinary care in their discipline, that complements the services provided by your local veterinary clinic.

If this is the case with your cat then both the medical and surgical specialists/consultants will collaborate to create the most appropriate treatment plan.
