We have had a challenge with cat treatment at Risers. The basics are covered, but knowledge of cat cancer, kidney stones and urinary tract failure seems questionable. They have annual rather than bi-annual cat visits for geriatric cats, which seems of concern. I now understand that bi-annual is the preference. Riser never told us.\r\n\r\nRisers often refer to specialists, rather than appreciating the consequences. They seem to have difficulty diagnosing cat disorders. Perhaps, this is how it has to be for a general vet, but it is a disappointment. This deferral is frustrating.\r\n\r\nMany of the vets are newer in that the vets who started this firm or kept it to its renowned level have passed away or retired. This is not to say that they are capable with some animals and questionable on cats.\r\n\r\nRiser vets are great with dogs based upon our past experiences. The size of the dog clientele makes this obvious. Cats? Well, the jury is still out and a few questionable experiences in different situations make us genuinely concerned. \r\n\r\nOh, on another note, when one of our cats passed away, after the emergency vet trip, Risers sent us a condolence card for the wrong cat. I encourage people with more favorable comments about Riser cat care to post, as well.

Pros: shots, dog care, dedicated staff

Cons: questionable cat care.
