We have a wonderful holistic-friendly vet who makes house calls. She works in conjunction with our "brick and mortar" vet for blood work, tests, etc. when necessary. Now that we have lost our two FeLV+ angels, she takes care of our new babies. The house call vet was the one that got us hooked up with LTCI. I'm certain Taj and Rani wouldn't have lasted as long as they did without the LTCI. Both eventually succumbed to lymphomas of different types. Brother and sister. We will always miss them.
I don't think it's necessary to have a specialized vet...just a vet who is special and willing to listen.

I talked to a wonderful consulting vet I know re Miss Eleanor (formerly Sabrina) & his first recommendation was Internal Medicine at U of WI, but then said that this would probably not be necessary as long as she is asymptomatic. That regular blood work, every 6 months, would be the main requirement. Certainly hope that is the case as just a couple of visits to UW would be well over $1000! I would like to combine the services of a good regular vet, which I think I have, altho he freely admits that is practice does not see a lot of FeLeuk kitties - which is probably pretty much the case with all non-specializing vets, I would think, with those of a holistic vet as well. Do any of you do that? Are any of you in Wisconsin?
