Alana Falone

The experience with my cats there were fine but they told me BOTH of my two cats were female to come find out 6 months later they were both male... to find out they were male was very disappointing since I’ve named them both female names. Don’t think I’d be coming back here

Trish C

Thank you for taking the time to help in caring for my precious cat she is coming up on 16 and Lincoln Ave Cat Hospital is helping me to keep her healthy. Thank you.

    My cat jimmy was very sick and also is terrible with people. So I took him to the Lincoln Ave cat hospital and it was an amazing experience. The staff was very friendly and I couldn’t believe it when jimmy was being very playful with them. Their prices were very reasonable and their team was very accommodating. Will definitely be taking my cat there from now on.
