I wasn't sure about taking my pet (or companion animal, if that suits your fancy) to a clinic that specialized in cats only. I mean, how much business can one drum up being so specialized? And how good can the vet be, who doesn't do anything but feline medicine? The popularity of Dr. Brian Hayes and his staff speaks for itself, though. People love taking their cats to a place where there are no barking dogs and a vet who knows their needs expertly. My cat passed away, and Dr. Hayes was so caring. He donated money in our name to feline medical research. He helped us find a service that would cremate our pet and let us do what we wanted with her remains, in a respectful way. It's not for everyone, obviously, but I'd bet many would consider it the cat's meow.
