To all cat owners; Dr Jim hands down is the best cat vet in Melbourne.
After an unfortunate accident with a vehicle our kitty showed signs of a serious leg injury among other superficial wounds.
He was rushed the the animal emergency centre given it was late at night when the injury was discovered.
We were given the option to have him stay overnight at a cost in excess of $1000 or be sedated and return home until our regular vet opened.
We took the later but still left $300 lighter.
After phoning around the Mornington peninsula and Frankston vet clinics the estimate for X-rays was over $500 and anywhere from $1500 to $3000 to repair the break depending on the severity.
On phoning Cat Lovers they advised me that the X-ray would be around $80 and managed to fit him in quickly the same day.
It turns out our cat had several severe breaks in his hind leg.
This was rectified on the spot.
The consultation, sedation, X-ray and plaster cast only cost me $240; a far cry from the $2000 - $3000 estimates from other clinics.
I'm convinced that Dr Jim is a pro bono vet and his fee structure is reflective of his genuine love of our feline friends.
I will not visit another clinic from this point forward and will travel to Frankston for this service in the event I ever move out of town.
Our many thanks to Dr Jim and the wonderful staff for not only caring for our kitty but our family during a very stressful time.
