Welcoming New Clients!

Proudly serving the Ithaca community for over 30 years

You can count on us!

As a pet owner, choosing a veterinarian is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. When you choose Veterinary Care of Ithaca, you’re choosing a veterinary practice that puts you and your beloved companion first. We’ve chosen our profession because we want pets to live long, healthy, and happy lives. We hope you’ll partner with us to strengthen the bond you and your pet share.

Your pet is in safe hands with our team.

Visits to the veterinarian can be stressful for both pets and their owners. At Veterinary Care of Ithaca, we have a special focus on providing a fear-free experience for our patients. As a member of the Cat Friendly Practice group, we’ve instituted several measures to calm our feline friends, including white noise machines. For both cats and dogs, we utilize calming pheromones throughout our clinic, and we show patients directly to the exam room to minimize stress.

We’re a Cat Friendly practice.

The Cat Friendly Practice® program is leading the movement to make veterinary care less stressful for cats and their caregivers. This program was developed to help veterinarians address the unique needs of cats in veterinary practice.

Very professional, knowledgeable staff. They explained everything really well and were very gentle/non-threatening to my cat. The kind reception person even brought me tea!
