  • "Great care for the kitty cat in your life."
    Emily S.
  • "Dr. Elizabeth Fenske and the staff at Parkview Cat Clinic are phenomenal. If I could give them a ten star rating I would. Dr. Fenske is very thorough and clearly loves cats. She resolved an ongoing nasal problem Oscar had in one visit. The last vet I went to (who shall remain unnamed) was suggesting all kinds of things after the first line of treatment didn't work. Kudos to Dr. Fenske and the amazing staff at Parkview."
    Jani O
  • "Dr. Grant has been great at letting us know how to keep our family healthy and comfortable.

    Dr. Grant and his staff have helped us through the difficult years with our aging feline friends. Over 16 is tougher for some cats than others, but Dr. Grant has been great at letting us know how to keep our family healthy and comfortable."
    Christopher
  • "I came across this gem of a place by chance. One of my kitties was sick and her regular vet was closed that day. From my first phone call to the clinic to the follow up that they did after our visits, the staff was so kind and brought peace of mind during a stressful situation. I have never felt so comforted and confident that she was actually being CARED for and it never felt like we were just being put through and on to the next. Thank you again Kelly, Gabi, Michelle and Dr. Fenske - Dori and I really appreciate you and all of your care! 7/13/2018"
