The Feline Hospital, a cat-only  veterinary  clinic in Salem, Massachusetts, was  founded in July 1984 by Dr. Kathleen Keefe-Ternes.  At the time, there  was only one other clinic in the  state that  specialized   in caring for cats. Limiting  patients to  just cats allowed   Dr. Ternes  to put into practice the concept  thatcats  are not small  dogs and need to be treated  withexclusive  care.  Everything about  The Feline Hospitalspeaks  to that belief. The  hospital has a warm, home-like atmosphere andour staff is skilled in all things feline. Our exam rooms even have a little "cave" where  our patients can jump into to wait before orafter their examinations.

Dr. Ternes, oneof  only two  board certified feline specialists in thestate of Massachusetts and her dedicated, professional veterinary team strive to provide every cat with  the healthiest, happiest and longest lifepossible.  We treat  every cat as if it were our own. Weunderstand that caring for a cat requires a team approach.  "Pediatrics with four feet" is howDr. Ternesdescribes feline medicine. Therefore, client education and communication arehallmarks of the practice.

We  are a  comprehensive  facility with  both   laboratory and  radiology services on siteand offer a full range of surgery and dental procedures.
