Atlanta >Cat Doctor

They love cats, but love your money more.
Recently my cat became anemic and obviously did not feel well. I took her to the Cat Doctor, who recommended the $800-900 full bloodwork.
Now, she had a flea infestation, and it was pretty clear that was the cause of the problem. Unfortunately, I fell for the $900 bloodwork.
Guess what? A thousand dollars of tests, and the vet could not tell me anything at all. She did say that it *MIGHT* be because my cat has worms, so I took her in and paid another $150 for worm shots and pills.
Then, I took her to an emergency clinic, who gave her a shot of some fluids and a flea-killing capsule. She bounced right back, and after a couple days recovery time, is 100% fine again.
So, at the Cat Doctor, I blew around $1200 and got no value at all. Completely wasted my money.
At the emergency clinic, I paid $340, but got X-rays and a healthy cat.
Ironically, the Cat Doctor actually charges more for a simple office visit ($100) than the emergency clinic charged for an emergency room visit ($80).
Bottom line? I would go to a different vet, and take your cat to a specialist clinic if the vet cannot help.
Very disappointing visit. I took my very old cat in for her first visit to The Cat Doctor. I thought maybe something was mildly wrong with her and this would be a good place to have her checked out. I was given just one and only option.....a test for $850.00 (sent to a lab) to see if she had any disease or sickness. I thought this was out of line considering I have never payed anything like that for testing. The doctor said that the "in-office" testing machines did not work well. I payed over $100.00 for the visit and left not knowing any more that before I went.
