About Us

The Forest Hills Cat Hospital was founded in 1974 by Dr. Jay Luger. In the mid-1970s, the idea of a cat’s only hospital was revolutionary because small animal practices were primarily dog-centric. During that period, there were less than a handful of feline-only practices. Nowadays, there are more than 200 feline-only practices in the US. Today the Forest Hills Cat Hospital is one of the oldest feline-only practice east of the Mississippi. Our special “No Bark” environment is designed to lower the stress levels of our feline patients.

During the course of the last 34 years, the Forest Hills Cat Hospital has trained at least seven young men and women and inspired them to enter the ranks of the veterinary profession. We have also trained more than a dozen men and women via cooperative arrangements with the Veterinary Technology Program at La Guardia Community College, an internship program at Russell Sage Junior High School, and other schools to begin careers as veterinary technicians.
