CAT-tober is almost here!

We are excited about our 5th Annual Feline Health Awareness Program Kick-off!

Did you know that amongst household pets, only half as many cats receive annual exams as dogs do? Here at Village Park, we are dedicated year round to informing our feline parents of the importance of regular health care and maintenance for their cats just as with their dogs.

“Have we seen your cat lately?”

Do you have a cat at home we don’t know about? We’d like to invite your cats to visit for a Wellness Exam , and we’ve come up with some pretty exciting perks to help your visit be extra special. Beginning October (or should we say CAT-tober) and continuing through December, we are offering some exciting perks to help make your visit extra special:

  • All cats with wellness or comprehensive exams in the month of October are treated to: 
    a FREE NAIL TRIM + 1 entry into the raffle pot
  • All cats with wellness or comprehensive exams in the month of November are treated to:  
    a FREE Thanksgiving themed cat toy + 1 entry into the raffle pot
  • All cats with wellness or comprehensive exams in the month of December are treated to:
    a FREE Christmas themed cat toy + 1 entry into the raffle pot
  • October is Black Cat Awareness Month! In addition to the October perks above, all black cats seen in the month of October will receive a special toy hand made by members of our Cat Champion Team.
  • National Cat Day is October 29th! In addition to the October perks above, all cats that come in for any exam, will receive a Cat Nip Sardine!

Raffle Pot Prize:

Client’s choice of one of the following (prize is for the feline that was brought in for the exam):
1. Free nail trims for life.
2. Free feline blood panel (for a scheduled dental).
3. Free 3 days of boarding in one of our cat condos.

During the first week of January, all tickets are thrown back into that pot for entry into the raffle for a special gift hand-picked by Dr. Carlson’s “Special Hand-Picked Gift”.

Join Dr. Carlson and the Village Park Animal Hospital staff on Saturday, January 27 th , 2018 at 5pm as we host a Pet Insurance Workshop where we will discuss the importance of pet insurance. 

We encourage all pet owners to attend.  Everyone will be entered into a drawing to win a $200 contribution towards the policy of their choice! This contribution is Non Transferrable.

We know navigating which company to choose, as well as making decisions about which policy is the best for you and your pet, are difficult. We want to remove barriers to these decisions and have clients join in active discussions about why pet insurance is so important. 

Village Park Animal Hospital has been La Quinta Cove’s only Veterinarian since 1998.  We have grown largely because of the dedication of our long-term clients who have trusted us for years to work hard to exceed their expectations.

We believe in forming strong, personal partnerships with our clients and strive to maintain the health of our patients through thorough physical exams, wellness programs and detailed medicine. 

We are the only Veterinary Clinic in the desert that offers regular client educational opportunities, and we look forward to educating the public about their pets’ health care.

Join us on January 27 th , 2018 for our informative, fun workshop.

  • "I have never been to a more caring and loving animal hospital in my life. The staff is wonderful. The vet techs loved on and treated my dog like he was their own. The Dr.’s have an amazing line of communication and kept in touch with both my husband and I before, during and after our dogs surgery. They really do treat your pet as if it were their own, and not just another patient number or dollar sign. To see the genuine love and comfort they offered my dog and the others who were there, made my heart content knowing
    what good hands he was in. I can’t recommend this place enough. Everyone from the receptionists at the front to the whole team in the back is outstanding. Thank you, Village Park Animal Hospital, for all that you did for us and Sampson, and what you do everyday for all your lucky fur
