Hello all,

I am a new resident of the area around SouthPark Mall, Park Road Shopping Center, and the Scaleybark-Woodlawn area.

Having just got settled into my apartment, I am ready to get a cat. I am choosing one tomorrow, but I would like recommendations from the City Data forum as to which vet I should choose.

Unlike in Salisbury, you basically had three choices in the county, it seems like I have that many choices within a few miles from my complex. I see Long Animal Hospital, Woodlawn Animal Clinic, and a few others.

I am looking for a vet that will give my cat/kitten her yearly checkups, rabies shots, and all other necessary care. However, I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for the stuff either. What I am saying is, I don't mind paying for quality care but I don't want to pay more than I have to.

I take my pup to Sharon Lakes Animal Hospital. They are very nice people and it is not too far from South Park. Prices seem to be about average.

I would also vote for Sharon Lakes Animal Hospital. If you have a cat, you wan to see Dr. Maples. If you have a dog, we like Dr. Dixon.

They are both great but Maples is a big cat fan. You can tell he really loves them.

I third Sharon Lakes Animal Hospital. I always take my cat to Dr. Weaver, but he is the owner and scaling back on his appts so it is harder to see him. I am sure Dr. Maples is fine, too.

A fourth for Sharon Lakes. When I lived in that area, my cats used to see Dr. Duckwall, and he was just wonderful with them. You can tell he genuinely likes cats.

We also take our dog to Sharon Lakes. Not the cheapest around but they seem to really care, are easy to work with, and are close to home. We see Dr. Maples (and the recommendation of our neighbors who have used him for a dozen years).

For 10 years (before our current puppy), we used (and were big fans) of Long Animal Hospital. We had an English Bulldog and a Rottweiler so we helped the vets there get some new boats/cars, etc! They are great group of vets and we saw them all. Our only issue with them was location when we bought a house, it would take us forever to get there for an afterwork appointment in rush hour traffic.

When we got our new pup last year, we decieded to go with a closer vet and Sharon Lakes has hands down winner for most recommendations near our neighborhood.

So, I can say I can highly recommend both Sharon Lakes and Longs (although I have 10+ years of experience with Long compared to 1 year at Sharon).
