If you are lucky enough to live in the Shoreline area, you can save your pet much stress by hiring Dr. Alexa Allen to come to your home to check out your pet. Dr. Allen is an amazing veterinarian and way more affordable than you might think! A typical visit to Cat's Exclusive used to cost us around $300. A typical visit from Dr. Allen typically costs less than $100. She is super smart, doesn't waste your money on unnecessary testing and it's way easier (especially if you have a cat or multiple pets) to have her come to you. One day last month I had her do a test on one of my cats and she was able to get the testing back overnight. The same test took Cat's Exclusive 7 days to get back. Our cat was sick and we got tired of waiting for CE to call us back, so we asked Alexa to come draw blood and do the same panel, and she got the results back to us on the next day~~which happened to be a Saturday! CE called us the following Monday with the same test. When we had one kitten who was refusing to use the litter box and was completely constipated, she had the simple idea to do a K-Y jelly enema to stimulate a bowel movement. 5 minutes later our cat was no longer constipated. It cost nothing to do this procedure. 10 years ago, we had the same thing happen to a different cat, and it cost over $400 at Cat's Exclusive to do what they called an evacuation. Dr. Allen has simple no-nonsense ideas about what excellent veterinary care looks like, and if she is stumped by something, she will not rest until she has found the answer. She has done a lot of research for free for us because she didn't know the answer to something like "Is it OK to give a 6 month old kitten COQ10?" CE would never have entertained such a question. Dr. Allen does only have a small range of coverage...so if you are lucky enough to live in the Shoreline area, hire Dr. Allen. You will be very happy that you did.
