I'm in Spring Green! It is good to know that the CCC can work with FeLeuk kitties, altho I have a good vet nearby in Dodgeville. Do they use any holistic treatments? On 6/11/2011 9:22 PM, Barb Moermond wrote: I'm in Madison and use Cat Care Clinic. Both of the vets there are members of

I agree, even ngative cats get upset going to the vet. I think it is the noise the car makes. I have found that driving over 50 mph sets them off. Homey talks all the way (15 miles). She says nooo way! Under 50mph, they are all calmer so I set the cruise and allow enough time to get there

Beth, I agree. I only use the larger ER group when I have an emergency late at night or on weekends. They are ok, nice, but just do not know each cat's personality and ractions to sounds and movements. Beth Noren maxgoodb...@gmail.com wrote: Hi Pam, I think a good regular vet who is

I'm in Madison and use Cat Care Clinic. Both of the vets there are members of AAFP [www.catvets.com] and are both good with my babies. I've been going there since Ninja was diagnosed FeLV+ and suffering from seizures etc. So, I've been going to them since 1998 and still love them. If you

My vet is a GP. treats cats, dogs and lots of horses and cows so his info on things like felv is not as good as a specialist, but, he welcomes every bit of information I bring him. I print out a lot of the things all of the members come up with and he then does his own research on the

Hi Pam, I think a good regular vet who is willing to listen is the absolute best kind. I've tried another vet with a larger 24 hour practice who has pioneered some procedures. He was a mean, nasty ego-maniac. I much prefer a smaller practice where they can spend time to get to really know you

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
