Description of service

My cat had several tumors on her stomach that had to be removed and analyzed. Te vet had to do surgery, and then the samples were set to a lab, and anesthesia was also necessary. She didn't stay overnight, but the vet offered that option to me.

Review of Service

The service was excellent, the vet took good care of her. I was very worried that I wouldn't be able to afford her care, but it was surprisingly reasonable. Everyone at the clinic was caring and helpful, I felt she was in good hands. When i brought her home, I felt confident that I could call the vet if there were any problems. He got the pathology back to me as soon as possible, and advised me on further treatment, should it become necessary.


I would go with a vet you trust, rather than shopping around for this one. The care of your family member is more important than the cost. If you are a repeat customer at your vet's office, they may let you spread the bill out into a payment plan. If your cat has to go under anesthesia, be prepared for strange behavior when he or she gets home. Make them comfortable, and keep a sharp eye on them.
