Best Cat Veterinarians of Silicon Valley

by | Aug 31, 2021

When it comes to cutting edge veterinary care, Silicon Valley has so many great options, choosing the clinic that’s right for you and your cat can seem like a daunting task. Not to worry — we’ve assembled our top favorite clinics in the San Jose/South Bay area to help you meet your perfect match.

The Cat Hospital

Cats are really great at hiding their illnesses. They’re better at it than most pets, and too often, pet parents don’t catch the signs before it’s gotten out of control. So who better than a team of dedicated cat specialists to pick up on the subtlest signs of illness? Open since 1977, the vets at The Cat Hospital have perfected the art of treating cats. In fact, owner Dr. Shanker is a founding fellow of the Feline Academy of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners.


Wellness exams, surgery, diagnostics, cancer care, imaging, dentistry, pharmacy, grooming, behavioral services, and more.

Best for…

Cats who like everyone to recognize that they are, indeed, the most important creatures in the room. People who prefer to take their pets to specialists.

Pet’s Best Friend Animal Clinic

Pet’s Best Friend Animal Clinic opened in 1992 and has since provided superior pet care while collecting mountains of awards and certifications along the way. Pet’s Best Friend is an AAHA accredited clinic (a distinction most veterinarians cannot claim) and earned Best Veterinary Clinic in Silicon Valley 5 years in a row. There are six vets, two of whom are two-time winners of Best Veterinarian in Silicon Valley. Notably, this clinic has earned the Cat Friendly Practice Gold Certification award from the American Association of Feline Practitioners. This means they promise a calm, cat-friendly atmosphere where your kitty will feel at ease.

Saiki Veterinary Mobile Clinic

When your cat can’t make it to the vet, either because of anxiety, health issues, or just rush hour traffic, you can always call a vet to come to you. For the last twenty years, Dr. Saiki has been helping cats, dogs, and other pets in San Jose, Santa Clara, Los Gatos, and other cities through Saiki Veterinary Mobile Care. Instead of a brick and mortar pet hospital, she brings her fully-equipped ambulance-like mobile vet right to you. The specially-fitted lab and surgical suite are prepared to perform all kinds of pet services wherever you’re located.


Wellness exams, vaccines, dentistry, radiology, routine surgery, health certificates, lab work, and in-home end of life services.

The team of nine vets in Silicon Valley is specialists in health issues like cardiology, oncology, and even neurosurgery. Other specialties are available in Campbell or Mountain View, but all branches offer referral-free emergency life-saving care. We hope you’ll never need to take advantage of this service, but if you do, know that your cat will be in highly capable hands.
