Small clinic with lots to offer! 3/26/2009

I have been going to Dr. Gaskin's clinic for about 4 years now and am very pleased with what he has to offer. I have several cats and he has given them all excellent care. The things I really like about this clinic are as follows:\r \r 1. Personal service- Unlike many of the larger clinics, you won't be rushed through a 10 or 15 minute appointment. Dr. Gaskin takes his time and you can expect at least a 1/2 hour appointment and longer if he has to work with a complicated case. His tech Alex is very good and I like how he handles the animals.\r \r 2. Technology- At this clinic you will get most bloodwork results immediately. This has been a godsend for me more times than I can say. When one of my cats has been ill, I don't want to have to wait a day or more to find out what the bloodwork says as that is often the indicator of what medications or treatments are needed. He also has digital xray technology which offers a more precise picture than your standard xray. I have a rescued cat that was found after she had been struck by a car and couldn't walk and the xray that was taken was amazing and showed even the smallest details of the damage (her hip was broken in three places!) A year and a half later, following his recommendations and treatment plan, she is running and climbing cat trees and happy as can be.\r \r 3. Dentistry- Dr. Gaskin has a special interest in dentistry and I have been very happy with the dental work he has done on my kitties. I also like that he uses an anesthesia protocol that results in me bringing home my cats without having to worry about them being all doped up and stumbling. They have always been alert and I couldn't tell they had been under other than they were missing a tooth due to an extraction or now had sparkling pearly whites! \r \r 4. Nutrition- Dr. Gaskin is very focused on nutrition as the cornerstone of an animal's good health and takes time to provide a nutritional consult. He does not advocate dry food for cats and recommends high quality, grain free canned diets. He is very helpful with obese cats that need to lose weight and also has a program to help diabetic cats try to get off of insulin.\r \r 5. He does NOT declaw cats! It's refreshing to see a vet that takes a stand against this barbaric practice, and he offers owners that have cats with scratching issues free behavior consultations so they can rectify the problem without resorting to mutilating a poor kitty that is just doing what comes naturally. \r \r 6. Vaccinations- Dr. Gaskin is up to date on current vaccine protocols and won't force you to vaccinate your pet unnecessarily. I have been very concerned about vaccine related sarcomas and was relieved to find out that he uses Purevax vaccines which are a bit safer than standard vaccines that are available.\r \r 7. Pricing- The prices at this clinic are reasonable and Dr. Gaskin is fair in how he charges. He does not charge exhorbitant fees, and compared to the prices I've seen at other clinics I'd say he is about mid-range. Overall, a very good value for what you get and I highly recommend this clinic. \r \r Pros: State of the art care more
