About Us

Welcome to the Cats Only Veterinary Clinic

Dr. Stan Carlin, DVM, has been a veterinarian for over 30 years! He and his loving staff would absolutely love to meet you and your kitty! 



We offer special pricing on cat spays, neuters, & declaws. We also offer vaccines, blood tests, & Feline medical & surgical services. Our regular office hours are Monday - Friday from 7:30AM-5:30PM. Appointments are preferred and begin at 9:30AM, Monday-Friday. Please give us a call at 501-207-0500 to schedule!


1. Surgery appointments are scheduled as 15 minute blocks of time from 9:30am to 11am Monday-Friday; if you cannot bring your cat in to the clinic between 9:30am and 11am, then you may schedule to hospitalize your cat between 7:30am and 9:30am, or in the late afternoon between 4pm and 5:30pm Monday-Thursday. If hospitalized in the afternoon, we will then conduct the surgery the next business day (we are closed Saturday and Sunday, but we do take good care of hospitalized/boarded cats over the weekend). 

2. Surgery patients admitted Monday-Friday will have surgery performed (spay, neuter, &/or declaw) that afternoon. Spays & Neuters usually go home the next day. Declaws stay two nights (for extra pampering). Thursday and Friday's declaw surgeries may go home Saturday or Monday.  

3. For all morning surgical hospitalizations, please take away all food at nine PM the night before surgery. For cats under 3 years of age, take away water also.

4. Please use a cat carrier to transport your cat.

5. Please do not bring in "sick" cats for surgery; they should be seen as an outpatient…..Outpatient appointment hours are Monday-Friday, 9:30am-11am and 4pm-5pm.

6. Vaccines should begin as early as 6-8 weeks of age. Declaw surgery may be done as early as approximately 3½ pounds of body weight (and as late as 10-12 years of age). Male neuters can be done early also (and in any event it is strongly recommended to be done no later than six months of age in order to minimize adverse behavior; ie, the longer you wait to neuter your male cat, the more bad habits he will develop). Female spays are usually done about 3-5 months of age (it is okay to spay a cat in "heat"; and, at our clinic there is no extra fee for spaying at that time; however, there is an extra fee if she is more than two weeks pregnant).

What To Expect


If you haven't been to a vet in a while, relax. Start with a complete checkup


Blood Tests

Even healthy cats may carry deadly viruses such as Feline Leukemia Virus or FIV.



It's important to stay on top of shots and watch over the overall health of your kitty.
