What to Expect

When looking for veterinary assistance you should be able to count on gentle care and excellent service. At the Colorado Cat Clinic Dr. Munck is supported by her experienced staff who are able to bring you the most thorough health, dental, nutritional and behavioral care for your cat.  Our veterinary facility was built specifically with a feline only practice design in mind and is exceedingly calm, clean, comfortable, and efficient.  Please call (541) 318-9879 to schedule an appointment and we will find a time that is convenient for you.

We recommend bringing in your younger cats and kittens for a thorough examination when first taken into your home and yearly after that.  After a complete examination and discussion of your cats lifestyle our doctor may recommend vaccinations, deworming and/or labs including a leukemia and kitty aids test. Our feline friends do a great job of masking pain and discomfort and therefore health problems even in young cats are often missed by pet owners. A few of these health risks unnoticed by owners are fractured teeth, gum disease (bad kitty breath), urinary tract diseases, upper respiratory infections and asthma.   

Cats are living longer lives these days and with that comes elderly cat conditions and sometimes a decrease in quality of life that owners attribute to "old age". Occasionally these older cat "conditions" cause cats to miss the litter box. Often these signs of "old age" may be caused by diseases that can be treated and/or cured with a minimum of medication or food change. Therefore, yearly or biannual lab work is very important to help determine your cats health status in middle and older age because many diseases such as diabetes, pancreatitis, thyroid disorders, kidney failure and infections can only be diagnosed by blood and urine evaluation.  Our doctor and staff will check the health of your pet from from head to tail and attempt to discuss all the findings and recommendations with you during the exam.

When you come for your appointment please bring in any medical history you have of your cat, no matter how routine.  We are interested in your cats health history for their entire lives, not simply the last year of records. Our staff will ask you many health, behavioral and nutritonal questions during your check-in, but anything you have to add is always helpful. You know your cat the best! No information is too trivial or too small to share, if you are concerned then it's always worth mentioning! 

In some circumstances, our doctors may consult with a specialist on your kitty's behalf or refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as ophthalmology, orthopedics, radiology, dermatology, internal medicine or surgery.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Experience and gut instinct are what kept my two cats alive. That is what you get with Dr. Kirsten Munck. Three years ago we moved here and my cat developed a rare illness what was promptly treated but not diagnosed right away- Dr. Munck was relentless on getting to the bottom of it utilizing her vast network of experts, knowing that she could solve it. And she did.
    I would be remiss to no mention the outstanding support team that Dr. Munck has. As any leader knows, you are only as good as the team you surround yourself by. 10 out of 10. Thankful for all of them."
    Margaret B.
  • "I am amazed at how passionate and caring the staff and vet are at this clinic. They are truly amazing! 11 months ago we lost our cat after moving to a new home. We took Kitler to the vet for one visit just before the move. Yesterday someone from the office called to say they saw Kitler's picture on the animal shelter's web page. It was her! She had been hit by a car and brought to the shelter. I still can't believe they recognized her after a single visit and remembered who she belonged to! Kitler should make a full recovery and we are so happy to have her home! Thank you!"

  • "Dr. Munck is the absolutely best vet one could ever find. She is caring, kind, compassionate, and genuine. We recently moved to Arizona and were unhappy with the quality of vet here. My cat, Henry became suddenly blind and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I called Kirsten for advice, not knowing where to turn. She has called me multiple times with advice and concern and has helped Henry to prolong his life comfortably. When I couldn't get the right medication, she had it overnight shipped to us. Thank you!!!"
