Vet in Washington, NJ?

Hi. When I first moved back to NJ a few months ago, someone emailed me a recommendation for a vet in Washington Twp or Borough, which is sort of near where I live. I would like to call that vet to make some inquiries, but I can not find the information now and can not remember who it was.

I have been thinking about him. Symptoms any better?Did the vet try the steroid shots? Any talk of using CCNU? Did the last chemo shot (the one that starts with E, can't remember the name) do anything? I am hoping for the best, but worried that things are bad since you have not written.

Hey Kerry- Chances are the kitty has *not* been microchipped by an owner who won't even let her inside when needed - and even if so I doubt if the vet would check it unless you asked him/her to. And if you take her to your vet as your cat, well... I also doubt if talking to the owner again

Chances are good that if the person who has "adopted" Misha doesn't take the cat inside on weekends or evenings, esp. in the winter, that he didn't bother to pay the extra expense to have the cat microchipped.There are two ways to proceed (as I see it), explain to the person that Misha will
