My journey started in 2007 when a vet told me that my cat was bored and only gave me a spray for his constant chewing of his right rear leg. After 2 animal hospitals and 4 veterinarians later, I was referred to Dr.Noonan at veterinary Specialty Center.She was able to find the bacteria that was eating his leg but also worked endlessly in an effort to save his leg, unfortunately this aggressive bacteria, nocardia, had done too much damage. Dr Robbins at VSC did the necessary amputation and made it possible to return a healthy cat to me. I read reviewers complain that its pricey but these are highly educated professionals, whom I believe did what others could not. I would highly recommend Veterinary Specialty Center !
