Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    Dr. Nancy Matthews and Dr. Jessica Trubey take special care to ensure that both my cats and I are comfortable with treatment options. They take plenty of time to explain everything to me. The rest of the staff are friendly and helpful. I have also used their boarding area. It is clean and filled with interesting sounds and things to entertain my cats.

    I've been taking my kitties to Dr. Mathews for many years. I can't imagine taking my sick and stressed-out kitty to other vets with noisy, barking vet offices. Dr. Matthews' office is quiet with birds and fish for kitties to look at. It's the only place to take a kitty who needs care or boarding. Dr. Matthews is an expert in feline issues and truly loves the kitties.

    I can’t say thank you enough for giving my cats the attention they needed. After many vets did my cats wrong you did them right. Your love and attention captivated me. Your guidance will have me coming to you for life. Takes the time and never wants to spend money you don’t have. Thoughtful of my wallet but you do everything you need to do to keep my baby happy and safe.

    New to A Cats View. Needed someone to care for my 14 yr old kitty who was very shy. Went out of town for almost a month and leaving Penelope for the first time. She instantly felt right at home and was cared for with lots of love. They kept me posted on how she was doing and I wished I had found them sooner. Highly recommend.
