The Kitty Klinic of Thurston County

The Kitty Klinic is a full service Veterinary Hospital for cats and small exotic pets.

The Kitty Klinic was established more than 60 years ago and is staffed by doctors with over 100 years combined cat practice experience. Technicians, assistants and front office staff all have special cats they cherish so we understand your concerns about your pet’s health. We provide services to cats, birds, rabbits, rodents, ferrets, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, reptiles, prairie dogs and other small exotic pets.

The clinic provides medical, surgical and dental services. It has a full in-house laboratory for both cats and exotics. Our microscope is able to save and enhance digital images for consult with outside laboratories. We have a digital x-ray machine that can send images for review by specialists. Our anesthetic monitor measures 7 parameters for surgical safety and even our smallest patients are monitored during anesthesia.

We have a complete pharmacy and can liquify then custom flavor most pills and some medications are available to order in a transdermal form that is rubbed into the ear. We no longer sell prescription diets directly. However, we can help with the set up of both Hills to home and Purina Pro plan Vet Direct for home delivery and we work with,, and for other prescription food options as well as a few other lesser known vendors. These vendors will send us requests for the diet you select and we approve them and fax them back to the designated vendor for delivery to your door. Please allow at least 48 hours after your request through an outside vendor for us to communicate with them and start your order process. All requests through outside pharmacies and prescription food vendors will be an additional processing fee of $7 that will accumulate on your account with us for your next visit at our clinic.

Kitty Klinic believes in stress reduction for veterinary visits and we are Fear Free certified, so warm towels, catnip, pheromone diffusers, treat-trays and toys are used during examination and medical procedures. Anti-anxiety medications may be dispensed before and during visits. Kitty Klinic offers a Health Savings plan to help you budget veterinary care. We are happy to generate an estimate before any service is provided as we do not believe in hidden costs and strive to keep our services affordable. Please check this HERE for a list of some of the many services we provide.

-With Doctor Starry’s Retirement, as of 1/3/24 Kitty Klinic will not be able to treat Guinea Pigs at this time Due to Doctor Lindley’s allergies. We will still be able to see rabbits at a very limited capacity, as well as hamsters, mice, and rats. Dr Lindley is still seeing reptiles, amphibians, avians, and other small exotics. Please call or email us for more information on the species we see.
We cannot do Same day or Emergency appointments.
We will also be making slight changes to our hours of service due to staffing issues.

-Kitty Klinic is not able to treat or take in Rabbits that are not fully vaccinated for Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease (RHDV2). Please call to schedule your vaccine for your rabbit as soon as you can to prevent delayed treatment. We appreciate your diligence in getting your pet the proper care it needs. The RHDV2 vaccine requires a booster 21 days after the first dose, then there is a two week wait for the antibodies to build in your pet before we can do an exam in clinic. We cannot do any grooming services, exams, hospitalization, or boarding for your rabbit without this complete vaccination schedule. Alternatively, if you have records from another clinic for these vaccines you can send them prior to scheduling so that our doctor can review to make sure they are within compliance. This would allow us to schedule your pet safely and in a timely fashion. If your Rabbit is in medical distress please contact: The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine in Bothell (open 24 hours) (425) 486-9000 or BluePearl in Lakewood (253) 474-0791 or Evergreen Avian and Exotic (425) 821-6165

Pet Boarding Room Hallway

Currently we are offering only curbside drop-off and pick-up.

The Kitty Klinic will remain mostly curbside until further notice. It reduces disease spread and is a more efficient use of our small building and parking lot. This has allowed us to provide services to more patients in the same period of time. We are sorry if this business model does not work for everyone, but we are Fear Free Certified and will treat your pets like the Treasures they are. Thank you.

Located above the Kitty Klinic in the second story is our colorful deluxe boarding facility. Each 4x4x8 themed suite has a heated window sill, water fountain, hammock, climbing ramp and is individually vented to the outside of the building to prevent spread of germs. We provide tender loving customized care for each boarder, extra-large litter boxes, filtered water, and twice daily room service with sanitization. Family suites and smaller units are also available. E-mail reports. some grooming options, medicating, vaccinations and other services are also available.
