I came to Cat Care Clinic because I liked the idea of a veterinary practice that focused only on cats. That seemed to ensure not only greater expertise among the staff, but a better environment for the cats. I found both to be true when I brought my two cats in. The staff is tender with the kitties and really seems to enjoy the different “personalities” that walk (well, are carried) through the door. I also appreciate very much that Dr. Luther lays out the diagnosis and the range of possible treatment options rather than pushing for a preordained outcome. Sometimes these decisions are not simple and you really need someone who is advocating for the best interests of the animal (and the guardian!). And the charges have become far more reasonable than they were five years ago. I feel as if the clinic is much more stable now.
Cat Care Clinic is different because of their feline-only focus and the kindness with which they treat cat and guardian. They promote prevention but not to the extent of financial risk. Treatment recommendations are made and Dr. Luther backs them up with evidence. You can also expect to receive follow-up calls after a change in treatment, and that is reassuring.
CCC gave my tortie, Callie “the fighting bear cat of Regent St”, chemotherapy for leukemia and it prolonged her life (with good quality) for several months. They treated my elderly Maine Coon for a liver problem that ultimately could not be cured but their treatment recommendations were presented step by step, with appropriate cautions. I deeply appreciate Dr. Luther’s offer to come to the house when the time came. My current two kittens have received good preventive care and very kind treatment. Cat Care Clinic is a distinctive resource in town!
