Our Mission Statement

The Cat Doctor Veterinary Hospital is home to a team of professionals that adore cats. Our highly trained doctors and staff provide compassionate care for our feline patients and outstanding service for our clients.

Our goal is to ensure your cat’s well-being during every stage of life. We understand the unique needs and behaviors of cats and work to promote the special bond between cats and cat lovers.

The Cat Doctor Veterinary Hospital, Idaho’s first feline-only hospital, was established in May of 1997.

Located at 9151 Ustick Road, on the southeast corner of Ustick Road and Dalton Lane, the property was purchased from the Dalton family by Dr. Alexis Higdon and her partner Kath’ren Bay.

The building is a 1940’s farmhouse that Dr. Higdon and Ms. Bay transformed into a cozy, comfortable, fully functioning feline veterinary hospital.

Our third exam room is dedicated to Marguerite Dalton, who lived in and cared for the home for 48 years, and believed in the vision that Dr. Higdon and Ms. Bay had for The Cat Doctor.

We are grateful to Dr. Higdon and Kath’ren for making their vision of The Cat Doctor a reality that inspires us all.
