I have taken my cats to "A Cat Crlinic" since first hearing about it, in probably the late 1990's.
Dr Allison Rogers, the founder, is a wonderful person and excellent veterinarian, and I cannot say enough good things about her.
This clinic is fully 45 min. or more from where I live, but I feel it is worth it to make the trip with my cats. Cost is about equivilent to other vets, but what the Cat Clinic vets have is extra training in cats as a specialty. My understanding is that most veterinarians while being trained in school concentrate on dog illnesses and treatment. Dr Rogers, and the veterinarians working for/with her are all totally and entirely vets for cats. It does make a big difference in my opinion.
The cats are calmer in the waiting room, with no dogs or other animals there with them.
I feel that Dr Rogers was the main reason my former, much beloved cat, lived a full 21 years of quality lifespan. She checked his blood, his kidneys, diagnosed his hyperthyroidism and treated it....She also found a tumor in his ear which several veterinarians at other clinics had described as ear mites and given me ear mite medication for----she was the first vet to clear up the ear infection (by taking samples and sending them to a lab, as opposed to just looking at them and making an assumption. That also allowed her to put him on the correct medicine to get rid of them! ) Then, she was finally be able to see the tumor, which no one knew was there, and she then referred us to the Veterinary Surgical Clinic for removal (it was benign). I appreciated her being able to find the tumor and not just keep assuming it was ear mites; also that she had no false pride in that she referred him immediately to specialists to remove it.
I've always appreciated the Cat Clinic. They are warm, caring and professional and seem to truly be concerned for the cats
. They have a very nice boarding facility for the cats as well. One of my friends kept her cat there for many months while she was deployed overseas by the Navy.
I highly recommend the Cat Clinic, at either of its' two locations, for any cat owner/lover!
