  • "I had a great experience with the Catawba Veterinary Hospital staff. They are always so gentle with my apprehensive kitty. Also, the people that live on PIB REALLY appreciate that the Vet comes to the island! For me it isn't just a matter of convenience. It minimizes the trauma my cat experiences. Instead of almost an hour on a boat in addition to the appointment and car ride, I have only a short car ride to and from the visit. I send them a giant THANK YOU!"
