A Cat Friendly Animal Hospital in Canton, MI
Cats, with their unique personalities and specific needs, make wonderful pets, but they often miss out on important medical care. To better accommodate our feline patients and encourage future vet visits, our animal hospital in Canton is Certified Cat Friendly by the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
The Cat Friendly Practice® program helps to guide animal hospitals in making veterinary visits less stressful for cats and educating staff to better understand their needs. Cats do not see their veterinarians nearly as often as dogs do, but they also need routine wellness exams, fecal tests and more to stay healthy.
Gold Level Certification
As a Gold Level Certified Cat Friendly Practice, Arbor Pointe Veterinary Hospital successfully meets or exceeds all Cat Friendly requirements. This means that our team members have become more knowledgeable in treating cats and understanding their needs. Additionally, we take several other significant steps to ensure a feline-friendly environment, including:
- Having designated exam rooms for cats only
- Using feline pheromone diffusers in our exam rooms and spraying pheromones on clothes and towels
- Arranging cat appointments so they can be brought into an exam room right away
- All of our staff members are trained in appropriate cat handling techniques and recognizing signs of illness or pain in cats
What a Cat Friendly Practice Means for You and Your Cat
Our primary goal as a Cat Friendly Practice® is to provide essential healthcare services for the cats in our community. Furthermore, we want our animal hospital to be a welcoming environment for cats and their owners. Due to our extensive knowledge in feline care and behaviors, we can help you give your loved one the happiest, healthiest life possible.

Dr. Petty and his Arbor Pointe staff are so very compassionate and extremely professional! I’ve taken my dogs and cats here for years. The clinic is pristinely clean! I very much appreciate their excellent communication and total up to date knowledge for the needs of my fur babies! Highly recommend!
Jake was never a “normal” dog. Everything seemed to hurt or scare him. When my vet suggested I see Dr. Petty, I immediately made an appointment. Despite the hour trip, we have been seeing him ever since. Jake is a much happier boy. Now that Dr. Petty has cared for him, he is living his best life.
When the emergency veterinarian said my cat was going to die, I went to Dr. Petty. After a series of treatments, my cat lived 9 more years. Ever since, I have brought all my pets to Arbor Pointe. Dr. Petty is kind, compassionate, wicked smart, willing to think outside the box, and just a darn good veterinarian.
