Ive been a client at the Cat Doctor for going on four years, and I would never take my animals anywhere else. I personally have three cats of my own, but I also use the Cat Doctor for rescued animals that I adopt out. I have taken cats to the Cat Doctor for just about everything--spay/neuter, allergy, toxoplasmosis, nerve damage, bacterial infections, parasites, eye surgery, dentals, and exploratory surgery to name a few!The three veterinarians are all knowledgeable and experienced, though most of my experience has been with Dr. Andeer. One of my cats is an "ingestor" who loves eating string, resulting in two emergency exploratory surgeries in the past three years. Dr. Andeer agreed to see my cat very late on a Friday afternoon to prevent a more expensive and stressful trip to UPenn, and she did a fantastic job on both surgeries. She is personable, treats clients with respect, and stays up-to-date with the latest treatments and information.Likewise, the staff is also knowledgeable and helpful. Several of the vet techs have been in the business for 10+ years and it shows. Thanks to my ingestor cat, I have gotten to know the vets and the staff well, and I am always treated with courtesy and respect as a returning customer.While there are certainly cheaper places to take your animals, the Cat Doctor is well worth the extra bucks to know my cat is getting the most comprehensive care possible. As an active member of the rescue community, I have used other vets around the city, and I can say from personal experience that the Cat Doctor is money well spent.I routinely recommend the Cat Doctor to everyone and anyone looking for a cat-only vet in the Philadelphia area--they are simply the best.
