Coastal Cat Clinic


Coastal Cat Clinic was founded March 2, 2000 in a little strip mall over by the mall on Country Club Road.   We spayed “Karen” Moore on that day, making her the clinic’s first patient. The open house attracted about 150 people and there were sample hand-outs and drawing for cat gifts.

Since then, we’ve moved to our new location on Doris Avenue across the street from Onslow Animal Hospital (no affiliation), and grown a great deal in clients and patients alike.  In fact, we’ve grown to the point that we have even expanded into the F suite next door.   We keep a trailer at the front of our parking lot to help make us easier to find since we’re hidden in a strip mall and right across the street from another vet hospital.   A picture of the clinic cat, Kru, appears on the sides of our sign-trailer in the parking lot and Candy Corn is featured on the back.

Dr. Crystal Smith purchased the clinic on June 1, 2005 and has been practicing here ever since.

Our mission:

First and foremost, our mission is to provide excellent veterinary care for your cat.  Just as important to us is to do so in the caring and low-stress environment of a Cat Friendly Practice.   In addition to doing routine shots with an emphasis on preventive medicine,  we also spay, neuter and perform simple dentistry.  When cats do get sick, we can deal with most routine diagnostics and treatments.

We think it’s something of a statement for Jacksonville that a feline-exclusive veterinary practice has been able to survive and even prosper here!  Anyone that knows us knows that we have a soft spot in our heart for the kitties.  We hope that you will enjoy our quiet and bark-free hospital for cats only.


Kru’s picture on our trailer will help guide you to us.



We’re hidden in the strip mall next to the Yoga studio.
