Just got a new kitten and need to find a good Vet. We live in the University, Palm Aire area. Would appreciate any suggestions.

Try Dr Huber--very close by--it's a small office but Huber is good. Pretty conservative and nice prices. He's older, and has a somewhat quiet manner. Staff is friendly- we have a dog and three cats who see him : ) Hes at Televast and Tuttle- you've

I take mine to Bayshore Animal Clinic (just a couple miles north of the airport. They are so loving and caring there, and have been there for decades. I personally like Dr. Holly Webber.

I don't know who to tell you to go to but I want to tell you who NOT to go to. Don't use Dr. Beth Brown from West Coast. She killed my dog. My dog had MRSA and she left it go untreated between rounds with antibiotics. She was never in the office and I would run out of the RX and would have to demand them to do a culture to see if it was still positive, meanwhile while we were waiting for the results (about a week) she would be off the medication. The culture would come back positive but now it was mutated and the medication she was just on, now it was resistant to it.

Then in the middle of all this she decided she wanted to pull a tooth.

She kept playing around until the MRSA went to my dog's brain and killed her.

Thank you all and ILoveLido, I'm so sorry to hear your sad story. I've had many dogs over the years and have had a Vet I felt should have lost his license or even better, arrested. So I understand, thank you for letting me know.

I will give a call to Dr. Huber as I prefer an older doctor who is calm. I will keep Dr. Holly Webber's name in case Dr. Huber doesn't work out.

Thank you all very much,

I highly recommend Dr David Smith who is one day a week at Crossing Animal Clinic at Honore and Fruitville(next to Starbucks). The rest of his time is spent at Bay Road Animal Hospital at 1712 Bay Road. He is the only vet who was able to diagnose and treat a weird skin disease my cocker had. He is easy going and obviously loves dogs.

As the owner of a rescued cat that became the momma of kittens over the Memorial Day weekend, I have done a lot of research on local vets lately. We went with the Bradenton Small Animal Hospital at 1324 17th Ave W in Bradenton (close to downtown, just off of 14th St W). The clinic is nothing fancy, it was built in the 1950's (the practice started back then) - although they are planning to start construction on a new facility later this year. Whatever they lack in curb appeal, the clinic makes up for in friendly staff, a vet that's very good at handling kittens, very knowledgeable too. Best of all, the prices were reasonable, much more so than many of the other clinics I contacted. So far I have been very satisfied with the quality of care.

By the way, I will be looking for good, loving homes for most of these cute little 1/2 Bengal kittens in about 2 to 3 weeks if anyone is looking for a new pet or pets (the vet thought they would probably adapt better if we adopted them out in pairs). These little guys have beautiful marbled coats and leopard-like spotted bellies.
