OAC is, in short, a couple of doctors whose knowledge is limited to how to give shots and inadequate check-ups and a few more receptionists who can't answer basic pet FAQs.
When I took my first cat here the first two times, I was enthused at how accommodating Dr. Claytor was to my needs and cat's needs.
The next two times I visited, I saw the true side of Oxmoor Animal Clinic:
Visit 1) A different vet took care of my new Persian kitty and, although she took more time than Dr. Claytor, made my cat extremely uncomfortable and to my later knowledge, did not even do a complete checkup. My cat had an ""adhesion to his cataract"" and she and Dr. Clayor declared he needed surgery immediately and sent me to an ophthalmology clinic 30-40 minutes away that they swore up and down was the nearest one. I did a quick search on Google and found another clinic (that sounded far more experienced after a few phone calls) 5-10 minutes away. Beware of their behind the scenes contracts (with specialized vets, food brands, etc.)
I later found out that my 4-lb kitty was too light to even be put under for surgery. As my ex-vet once stated, ""we do not send anyone off without exhausting every resource available at our location.""
2) I went back to check on my cat's eye and Dr. Claytor THEN fully explained what was going on with the eye. She failed to do this the first visit and after tacking on an antibiotic cream for his eye, she explained to me the cream would ""maybe"" prevent the adhesion from getting worst but wouldn't do anything that tear drops, that I had ben using, wouldn't be able to do. Way to give away that you are just trying to make money.
I recently found out that I, and my two roommates, have ringworms. I called the vet to see if they checked for the ringworms and they said no because it wasn't common. Neither is Feline Leukemia, but a check-up for that is mandated in visits. WHY WOULD YOU NOT CHECK FOR RINGWORMS DURING A CAT VISIT? The receptionists are also very uneducated in simple things such as whether skin-to-skin contact could transmit ringworms and how to rid of them.
