I had the WORST experience in my life with all of the vets I've been to over the years with Dr. McFarland!. My cat was diagnosed with IBD. Dr. McFarland put her on one medication (Budesonide) and after months, realized it wasn't working. Then she put her on Prednisone, which didn't work at all. She got worse. I read an article online about how Prednisolone was much better for cats with IBD than Prednisone and showed this to the doctor. She poo-pooed it and told me to only look at such and such websites for cat info. When my cat got progressively worse over the next month after her prescription of Prednisone and almost died, she referred me to Dr. Yoshimoto at WLA VCA. He immediately put her on Prednisolone and my cat turned around DRAMATICALLY, FOR THE BETTER, IN A MATTER OF DAYS!!! AFTER A YEAR OF SUFFERING WITH DR MCFARLAND'S SO CALLED "TREATMENT"! My beloved cat ended up dying after a year of treatment with a GOOD doctor. I truly believe she would not have died at the age of 12 IF she had been treated properly from the beginning, with Dr. McFarland. I am a HUGE cat lover and WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND DR. MCFARLAND TO EVEN MY WORST ENEMY! A COWORKER HAD A SIMIALR EXPERIENCE WITH HER SICK CAT? PAID LOTS OF MONEY TO DR. MCFARLAND, ONLY TO HAVE HER CAT DIE.

Since I live so far away from her practice, I am not able to take my cats to her...but I wish I was closer! When visiting a friend in Valencia I have attended many of her "open house" events and I am so IMPRESSED not only by the doctor but also her hospital facilities and the great staff she employs!

Dr. Tracy is an excellent veterinarian. I brought my cat to several vets in the past, but I never met a vet like her. You can tell how much she dedicates to her practice, not like most vets who try taking money out of you as much as possible. If you have a cat and sick, you should take your cat to see Dr. Tracy. I can assure you she really cares and does the best job for your cat.

The Cat Doctor treats more than just cats. Dr. Julie has seen my cats and she is wonderful with them. The entire staff is friendly and compassionate they make the animals feel welcome. The prices are reasonable.

The Cat Doctor is truly what Doctor Tracey is. She only treats cats. although I have dogs as well I bring my cat to The Cat Doctor. I was referred to her by one of my client cat lovers. She raved about her and I absolutely agree. She is so compassionate. She even has an office cat that has lost the use of her back limbs so she pulls herself around with her hind quarters on a cart. Most people would have euthanized the cat but she definitely has a quality life that they have given her. Love Dr. McFarland The Cat Doctorl

I've had nothing but good experiences with the Cat Doctor. I've been able to make appointments without unreasonable delays and to get in the same day when there's a serious problem.

I've seen Dr. Julie more than Dr. McFarland, and i like Dr. Julie very much. The gentleness with my cats is great and the thoroughness of the physicals is really appreciated. Taking the cats to the Vet is always traumatic for them, but the staff at the Cat Doctor minimizes the trauma as much as they can.

The Dr. who see's my cat always call to follow up if testing was done or if there was any procedures that veyr serious to make sure that the cats are okay and recovering well. I've also gotten good practical advice on trating things like hairballs (feeding the cats unspiced pureed pumpkin) that has worked out feel.

The fees are reasonable compared to other vets I have seen and there hasn't been any major attempt to get me to pay for unnecessary services or produts.

PROS: Good vet, easy to get in for an appt. friendly staff
CONS:

Dr. McFarland just sees cats, so she really knows her feline patients very well. When one of my dear cats began to suffer from kidney failure, she and her staff helped ease his discomfort and improve his quality of life. When after several years of treatment, my cat finally was too frail to travel to her office, she even made a house-call. And when at last my cat passed away, she was extremely kind and treated my cat like the family member that he had been to me. She even directed me to a pet-crematorium that would treat the remains with dignity. Dr. McFarland has an excellent heart.
