Parkview Cat Clinic is trying hard to keep our staff healthy so that we can continue to see your kitties and remain open through this Pandemic. We are following the recommendations of our Governor and our American Veterinary Medical Association by trying to limit human contact. We are getting daily mandates from our AVMA, and it is possible that we may be limited to the types of appointments that me may be able to see in the near future. Because of this, we may have abbreviated hours, including being closed on Saturdays in the following weeks. We will continue to update you as things change. For the next few weeks, we will have smaller staffing and Dr. Fenske will be taking a leave of absence. We want to continue to treat our patients. Please be patient with us as we navigate these uncharted waters. We are asking you to abide to the following CARSIDE PROCEDURES.

    2. Our Techs will call you to get a history on your pet.

    Gabrielle
  • "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"
