I've been going to Doctors Saver and George for six years. My two Aunts and my late Uncle have all brought their cats to Catnip & Carrots as well. In all - that's 8 happy, healthy cats, and 4 happy, secure parents!! The in-office experience is incredible - serene, quiet (no barking or tweeting,) cozy and clean, and the aftercare and support they provide is, in my years of experience, unsurpassed.
I had brought my first cat to them when she was about 15, she was not feeling well. It turned out that she had kidney failure, and they very quickly diagnosed her and prescribed the meds she needed to be able to enjoy her senior years. If it weren't for the doctors and staff at Catnip, she would not have made it to eighteen years old, at least not comfortably - that's for sure.
When it was time to let her go, they gave her the most loving, humane and dignified exit possible, and me the most compassion and support I had ever seen when dealing with such a difficult situation.
More recently, I found two male kittens on the side of the road in upstate New York, while on a trip, and I had never had males before. They gave me great advice and educated me on the differences in adopting and caring for male cats. However, my JohnnyCakes ended up getting sick in October, due to a medical condition common in overweight male cats (he's not a total fatty, but he's nice and plump! :) When he was in extreme pain and unable to go potty, Dr. Saver instantly returned my late night call and referred me to an awesome emergency clinic, and immediately afterward arranged to take in JohnnyCakes for intensive care.
On my visits to him in the hospital, I once again had the privilege of observing and speaking with the support staff, and was very happy to see that their hiring standards are so high. The staff are so THOUGHTFUL, CARING, INTELLIGENT and RESPONSIVE to all the pets in their care, and I think any parent would appreciate that.
When it was time to take JohnnyCakes home, Dr. Saver gave me complete and thorough instructions on his aftercare - medicating, taking temperature, and administering fluids if needed. Within minutes I was completely comfortable with, and felt ready and confident to do anything necessary to care for him in the coming weeks.
For about the first 10 days following his stay, every day, the Doctor and her staff called to check up on JohnnyCakes (He's the sweetest thing, and such a good patient, everyone there knew his name and they adore him!) And she assured me that I could call her anytime, after hours, if I had questions (which I did, and which she received and answered without even a hint of being inconvenienced or disrupted.)
I'm telling you from years of experience, not only with the Catnip & Carrots family but with many, many other vets while working in cat shelters and doing independent rescue work, that nobody I have ever taken cats to have been even close to the providing the excellence in feline care that Catnip has.
I think I can speak for my entire family, and any other sensible Catnip & Carrots patients' parents, when I say that I will NEVER take my cats elsewhere, no matter how long the drive. My cats deserve only the best care, and that they shall have for all their lives. I urge you to make an appointment with them, and you will be so thankful you did - for lets be honest, all of our animals deserve the best :)
Pros: Compassionate, honest, experienced and knowledgeable.
