Veterinary Services For Cats


Since 2019, Dr. Lacie and support staff at Cat Care Center of Baton Rouge have sought to achieve the highest standards of feline veterinary medicine. We feel that cats are part of the family - yours and ours. Our clients' response to the care we provide is the strongest testament to the quality of care we provide for their cats.

You can find our recent client feedback here.

Cat Care Center of Baton Rouge offers preventative health care as well as advanced diagnostic and surgical services. Our commitment to quality service and compassionate feline veterinary care motivates us to continuously evolve.

We Support Every Stage of Your Cat's Life

As your feline friend grows, they will move through six distinct stages of life:

  • Kitten: 0 - 6 months
  • Junior: 7 months - 2 years
  • Prime: 3 - 6 years
  • Mature: 7 - 10 years
  • Senior: 11 - 14 years
  • Geriatric: 15+ years

Naturally, as a cat grows and progresses through life, it will undergo physiological changes and face a variety of life events that will require care and attention. From kitten care to geriatric cat medicine, consistent preventive care can make all the difference in the quality of life of your cat. Ultimately your cat's health will impact your relationship with them.

Cats are the masters of disguise and therefore very good at hiding illness. In fact, most cats will simply become less active and less interactive when very ill. Any signs of illness that a cat may show will be very subtle. Any change in their behavior should warrant a consideration that they may be ill. Many clients will return from work to find that their cat simply does not greet them at the door or eat their meals as usual. This may be an indication that your cat is ill. Because the signs of cat illness are so subtle, if you should notice any changes in behavior please call our office.
