A Letter from Dr. Cowell:
Twenty-three years ago, I opened The Cat Clinic of Stillwater, and it has been my privilege to provide care for thousands of wonderful kitties. You have allowed me to care for your feline companions through times of joy and sadness and made it possible for me to pursue my dream of being a feline veterinarian. I have been fortunate to have a great team of staff members throughout the years who helped provide excellent care in a compassionate environment.
It is with great reluctance that I am announcing my retirement and the closing of my feline veterinary practice, The Cat Clinic of Stillwater, on October 28, 2016.
It is time to begin a new phase of my life and to slow down and spend more time with my family. We will continue to make Stillwater our home, and we look forward to seeing you in our community.
I have found a veterinarian to provide the care you and your kitties deserve. Dr. Melissa Tillotson, who has recently purchased
Perkins Road Pet Clinic, is interested in providing a special place for kitties within her progressive small animal practice. Along with her associate, Dr. Shauna Bradshaw, Dr. Tillotson has agreed to provide veterinary care for the cats belonging to clients who wish to use their services. The clinic is located at 900 S. Perkins Road. The telephone number is (405) 624-3086. To assure there will be no interruption in patient care, we will transfer the complete medical records to Perkins Road Pet Clinic following the closure of The Cat Clinic. We encourage you to schedule an appointment so that medications can be refilled in a timely manner and to establish a Client-Patient-Doctor relationship prior to any major illness.
Perkins Road Pet Clinic offers several assets that will be beneficial to your kitties. They are open seven days a week. The hours are 7 am to 8 pm Monday through Friday, 8 am to 6 pm on Saturday, and 12 pm to 6 pm on Sunday. The clinic has digital radiology that will allow radiographs to be reviewed quickly and sent to specialists rapidly if needed. They have a groomer on staff and companion laser therapy to help with pain control. In addition, we are transferring from The Cat Clinic many of the specialized pieces of equipment that are important for the care and comfort of your cats. Equipment related to monitoring blood pressure and oxygen level, warm water blankets, and feline sized surgical instruments will all be waiting for your kitties. The comfortable suites where your cats have relaxed when you have traveled will be placed in a special feline room. Drs. Tillotson and Bradshaw invite you to a special reception at Perkins Road Pet Clinic on Saturday, November 12 from 11 am to 1 pm to meet the doctors, tour the clinic, and receive a welcome gift.
I, and the entire staff of The Cat Clinic, will miss seeing you and your kitties. We have loved our time with you and wish you the best in the years to come. Thank you for allowing me to be your veterinarian; it has been a great honor and privilege.
Annette K. Cowell, DVM, DABVP
