About Us

Dr. Hugh Chisholm and his wife, Kathy, had a vision – to provide a veterinary hospital in Atlantic Canada devoted exclusively to cats and their owners. Their vision became a reality in 1987 when the Atlantic Cat Hospital opened its doors. Dr. Julia Gilkerson purchased the Atlantic Cat Hospital in 2010.

Focused on feline health care, our hospital services include preventative health care programs, behaviour and nutrition counselling, internal medicine, radiology, dentistry, surgery, pharmacy and in-house laboratory as well as reference laboratory services. Veterinary diets, gifts and toys can be found in our reception area where our friendly staff are waiting to assist you. Watch our clinic video tour.

Freed from the impossible task of knowing everything about all species, we concentrate on the latest developments in feline health care... For as Leonardo da Vinci once said:

"This smallest of all felines is a masterpiece."
