My cat was a client at Scaredy Cat Hospital for 11 years until we moved out of Arizona almost 2 years ago, and boy do we miss it! Working with Dr. Wood, along with the outstanding supporting staff members was an experience unlike anything I’ve been able to duplicate since. I loved the idea of a cat only vet; knowing that everyone there loved cats, and, that the doctor’s knowledge was specialized. It felt like home the first time I brought him there and it felt like leaving home when I moved. They are very tolerant of nervous cat parents and go out of their way to help you through any medical difficulties your cat may encounter. One of the hardest parts about leaving Phoenix was leaving Scaredy Cat Hospital behind. To this day, I don’t trust anyone with my cat as much as I did everyone at Scaredy Cat. I can’t thank them enough, or describe how deeply I miss them.

We moved to AZ from TN 3 years ago and wanted to make sure we set up the best doctors for our children. Or boy has a chronic undiagnosed sinus condition and our main coone requires regular grooming. Our first visit with our boy solidified this was THE BEST veterinarian we had ever been to. Our poor boy had gone 5 years with multiple vets saying he had a sinus condition of some type. Scaredy Cat conducted a few tests (only ones absolutely necessary so to not gouge me) and definitively found he has herpes!! This effects his sinuses, not curable but easy to treat when he has flare ups. After a few days on the meds our cat, we nicknamed snarfy, had no nasal issues. We both cried during our follow up visit that they fixed our baby. Beyond this everyone there is amazing. They go above and beyond to provide superior service. We drove 45minutes each way to go there with no regrets. I am very picky in vets and now that we moved to Portland I worry about not finding anything comparable to Scaredy Cat. Thank you Melanie, Dr. Wood (she solved our boy’s illness), and ALL of the staff at Scaredy Cat. We love you all and will miss you!

Wow! I’ve been searching for this Dr. Since I moved to AZ (9 years ago)!! To rule out a doctor, all I need is a 2-5 minute conversation & a walk through. If the facility & Dr get past the first stage, they’re 1/3 closer to approval. I have high expectations when it comes to the health care of my little buddy. He’s been (an awesome) part of my life for 14 years & I love him… You bet your ass I won’t accept anything less than the best care for him. I found exactly that today at Scaredy Cat Animal Hospital!! The staff scored high as well! They were kind, gentle and genuinely caring This Doc is a keeper!!
