I have been going to caring for cats since about 2005. I have seen both Dr. Arnold and Dr. Hartman. When I go to the vet, I am looking for top quality care at a fair price. The vets are cognizant that not everyone has a lot of money, and provide alternative suggestions for care. A note on style: these women are in a business, they should not be expected to take a loss because a cat owner can't afford care for a sick cat. I am aware Dr. Arnold does charity work when a house overloaded with sick or dying cats is discovered, and bless her for that. But this is her business, not a charity center. Regarding Dr. Hartman: completely professional and competent. These women should not be expected to be your friends or entertainers and expected to smile. When I go to a doctor, a dentist, any health care professional, what I expect is great care. If you want someone to hold your hand and tell you what a cute kitty you have, try a mental health professional. If your want your sick cat to get better, go to Caring for Cats.

Please understand that every person has their own professional "appearance" and that does NOT mean they don't care about animals. We have used C4C for years, both as a rescue, and all our own cats go there. We have encountered no finer vet, anywhere. They are extremely knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. The front end staff are excellent as well. Before judging negatively, ask yourself two questions - 1. Is my cat getting top notch care? 2. Is something inside me being triggered; is this about them or me? This clinic DEMONSTRATES caring in many ways including giving rescues discounts. Trust me, many many cats have benefited from this kind assistance. I would refer anyone there, without hesitation!

I have to agree with everyone on Dr. Hartman. She is VERY uncaring and cold. This was my second time being forced to see her. I make my Appointments specifically with Dr. Arnold and when I get there I'm forced to see Dr. Hartman. Dr. Arnold is great. i don't know how she ever got partnered with such horrible woman. I don't think I'm going back there much longer cuz i'm sick of getting stuck with a person who doesn't even seem to like animals.

I have been taking my cats to Caring For Cats for about 13 years. I find them to be excellent doctors, both Dr. Arnold and Dr Hartman. They are also very compassionate. They love cats for sure! Their prices are so reasonable for the top notch care that they give. The staff there is very nice and the wait time is very minimal.. I have had many emergencies over the years and they have always taken my cat right in. We are lucky to have them in this area... Keep up the good work C for C!!

Dr. Betsy Arnold is one of the most caring and compassionate person I know. I recently lost my 6 month old Siamese Tinkerbell, and Betsy did everything in her power to help her in every way possible. Dr. Arnold went far beyond the limits trying to save my baby. Pam was wonderful and genuinely concerned for me and my pet. I wouldn't take my pets anywhere else. I live 85 miles from Rochester, but it is very much worth the trip for the care my pet receives there.
I greatly appreciate everything they did for me and my family! It's because of Dr. Arnold that I have another baby to love! She went out of her way to heal my heart... Thank you Betsy:)

Tinkerbell will be missed terribly and she will always be in my heart<3

Dr. Arnold is one of the most practical, caring and thoughtful vets I have every known. I can not say that the same is always true with her staff. Her staff, at times, seems a bit careless and a bit too cold and business-like. That said, I love this place and I would take my cat no where else.

The front desk women are TOTALLY RUDE. I only take my foster kitties here because they are cheap, but I wouldn't ever recommend them. They are vaccine-happy, completely rude to clients and I have seen numerous techs and the two vets be very rough with cats. They treat clients like they are just numbers.

The waiting room is infested with their own cats who wander loose through the place and stress your cat out who is in a carrier. The front office WREAKS of cat urine and you can't even sit in there for 30 seconds without having to go out front and take a fresh breath.

Both the vets are rude, the office staff is uneducated and rude, they treat you like you did something wrong by bringing your cat there.

Go somewhere that your business is appreciated and where people are happy! There are other cat-only vets in the area with GREAT reviews.

My experience was great! Everyone was very friendly and informative. I have read many reviews and a lot of them were negative on the red head ( I would like to say she's more blonde then red hehe) But I thought she was great! Very friendly, told my cat she was pretty, my cat then hissed and the doctor said, "well thats not very nice" and we all laughed! She then asked me a few questions and went to take my cats temperature and realized my cat was a little nervous and peed! So she had my carrier cleaned and cleaned up the cat! She then went to give my cats her shots. The first needle was dull so she got a new one instead of hurting my cat! I greatly appreciated that! She then gave my cat her pill and told her she was a good kitty and pet her! Overall my experience was great! Thank you guys!!

We have taken 6 of our cats, two strays, and my grandmother's cat to Dr. Betsey over the last 30 years. I wouldn't take my kitties anywhere else. We have three new baby kittens and they'll go there too. Respectful, knowledgeable, caring, and understanding. Through thyroid treatments, cancer operations, blocked urinary tracts, and more she's been very considerate and knowledgeable. When we've had to make the awful decision to euthanize, Dr. Betsey has been supportive and compassionate. We've boarded cats there and found the price reasonable and the care was top-notch. We had a cat who would just freak out at the office - so she saw him in the car. Above and beyond. Always. We have relied on her advice many times. Request Dr. Betsey and your kitty will be taken care of very well!

I had a very sick cat and was having a hard time coming up with the money to pay for the services he needed. A friend of mine suggested Caring for Cats because they were cheaper and I could afford them. I called to tell them about the problems my cat was having. I talked to the secretary and she told me the vet was with a customer and she would consult with her as soon as she was done and give me a call back to set up a time to bring my cat in. I waited all day for her call. Finally called them back only to find out they were closed. They never called me back and by then the local vets had all closed for the day. I never got my cat to the vets until the next morning and by then it was too late and my cat had to be euthanized. Thanks a lot Caring for cats!

I took my cat here for the first time this morning. I had read the reviews before going and was wondering about Dr. Hartman (red haired vet) since she is who my appt was with. Many reviewers didn't care for her. I found her to be respectful and efficient. She was thorough and asked good questions and did not treat Luna roughly. She was how I would want a vet to be. I don't need someone to coddle my cat - I do that enough for everyone. I want her to find the issue in as little time as possible with as little discomfort to my girl as possible. She did that. Luna never made a peep (even when her temp was taken). I thought the cats roaming freely were sweet and charming. I was not bothered by smells... it smelled like a vets office. My experience there was great

Caring for Cats takes good care of the cats, but I would NOT recommend seeing Dr. Hartman. She's cold, seems to be uncaring, and unfriendly to the point of rudeness. I will never see her again.
I hear Dr. Arnold is great, so my next appt is with her. If I'm not happy with her, I will be taking my cat to another vet without a doubt.

Recently my boy Jasper was having some liver enzyme issues. Dr. Arnold put him on medication and it worked the first time but not the second time. I was quite worried and she said that there was a fairly simple test that could be done right in the office to see if his liver was functioning properly. He had the procedure done on February 1st and the blood draws had to go to Texas for processing. Dr. Arnold said the results would be back in a week and she also drew blood to test his pancreatic function. She was so kind and caring along with her staff. The results came back on February 9th just in time for our birthday and it was all good news. Everything was normal. She is THE BEST vet and she is so knowlegeable that I trust her with Jasper implicitly. She takes her time with him and me and always seems to have the answer. Thank you Dr. Arnold.

Our family had to make a difficult decision regarding one of our cats. Dr.Betsy who is normally very cordial anyway, was especially kind and gentle explaining what was going to happen to our granddaughter, who wanted to be with our cat during her final moments. Dr. Betsy even gave us a wonderful poem with our cat's
"paw print" on it to remember her by. I can't say enough about "Caring For Cats", and Dr.Betsy
Arnold.

I got my cat from Dr. Arnold when he was 12 weeks old. The kitten was the sweetest thing--so socialized and loving. Sadly, startled by the tremendous boom of fireworks going off near my home, he flew from my arms, breaking his leg. I felt horrible because I waited a few days before calling, thinking he must have sprained it...I forgot...I'm not a veterinarian. I took him in and Dr. Hartman was on duty, with Dr. Arnold out of town. I could not have been more pleased. I read a couple of comments here saying "the red headed doctor" was "rude" and did not treat their cats well. I loved Dr. Hartman's efficency and confidence. Granted, she was not trying to be my best friend, but I wasn't looking for a best friend, I was hoping for efficincy and confidence. Nigel (the cat) was assured by her handling. Some people think that cats are children. They are indeed loved like children, but they need firm, steady, rapid handling in order to feel secure. They don't want someone mild mannered and what we would, as humans, equate with "gentle". They want whoever is poking and prodding to get it all over with as soon as possible. I am so pleased with the entire office. No matter what you do to make it all OK for your cat, going to the vet is probably equated with us going to Hell for the day...traveling there in a in a metal barrel being dragged over rocks! Dr. Hartman was quick with her handling of an already traumatized animal, explained everything very thoroughly, and I'd trust her and all anytime. Thank you so much!

I've been going to Caring for Cats for 15 years and Dr. Arnold is the best. She and the staff are caring, knowledgable, courteous and you know they love their jobs. When I've had to leave my pet there I always have received a phone call as to how he is doing, instructions upon release, etc. The red-haired vet is a nightmare! She is a matter-of-fact type person with little compassion. As for the cats walking around I love it. There is a sign asking patrons to please keep their cats in their carriers.

I found that this was not a good place to take your cat at all. There was a horrible smell of urine that made your eyes water as soon as you walked into the door, which could be caused by the many Burmese cats that walk where they please around the office and jump on you without warning. However i was even further disturbed by the treatment of my cat. We brought him in for a pre-surgery consultation and upon telling the vet about his bad reaction to vaccines she replied "That just shows that their working" Any other vet will tell you to withhold from vaccinating your pet again to prevent from further damage because of his poor reaction. We then brought him for his surgery and when we picked him up were told nothing about how he did, or any post surgery care and when we brought him home we discovered that they had cut his nails extremely short. His nails did not need to be trimmed, they had just been trimmed, nor did we ask to have them trimmed. Had they at least informed us that they had trimmed his nails(even if it had been for no reason as it was) then i could have had at least considered understanding that. However the length was appalling, there is only a 1/4 of his entire nail left and I can almost be sure they would have bleed. I was not pleased with this office at all, maybe they have low prices but i would rather have my pet have proper and good care and spend a little more money. I wouldn't recommend taking your cat here.

I've been taking my cats to Dr. Arnold for years. I trust her judgment and advice that she gives me because I know she always put the best interest of my cats first. I love my cats very much and I always try to give them the very best. That's why I take them to Dr. Arnold because she is a very kind and caring veterinarian and I feel that she treats them as if they were her own. I feel blessed that I was able to find Dr. Arnold and have her care for my cats all these years. I would recommend Caring for Cats to anyone with 150% confidence that they will be totally satisfied with the service and care that they receive from the entire staff. Thank you Dr. Arnold for all the hard work and long hours that you put in to take care of all our kitties!

Thank you Dr. Arnold for all the hard work and long hours that you put in to take care of all our kitties!

I agree with another poster. The vet with the red hair is absoluetly awful. She treated my kitten like she was nothing, shoving an IV in her forcefully. She seemed to care less. I was so appalled I wanted to take my kitten and leave immediately. The place reeks like cat urine, which although it is a cat vet, I've been to other cat vets that never smelled that bad. There are cats wandering around everywhere, while I was there I watched one of those cats get into an altercation with a patient's cat who was there for treatment. The other vet is very very nice, I had a completely difference experience with her. I think that is Dr. Arnold.

I took my cats to Caring for Cats for many years, until I moved far enough away that it became too inconvenient to do so. As a cats-only vet, Dr. Arnold is far more knowledgeable than the average small-animal vet about the latest research and medical treatments of cats; if one of my cats ever developed a complicated issue, I would still visit Dr. Arnold and not worry about the long travel time. She handles cats beautifully, and doesn't treat cats like small dogs, something often encountered in mixed-animal practices.

I would most certainly refer anyone to Dr. Betsy Arnold or Dr. Debra Hartman at Caring for Cats veterinary. I have been taking my cat Clawdia to them for many years now because I know they are receiving the best care and am never dissatisfied with the experience. The staff is always polite, caring and professional. Dr.'s Arnold and Hartman will answer any questions you may have and are gentle and caring. The prices are extremely reasonable. Caring for Cats is the BEST!! Highly recommended!!

Can't say enough good things about Dr. Arnold and the staff at Caring for Cats. We have four special needs kitties and she is always so kind and helpful with each one. She is always willing to take the time to help us understand the issues involved with their special needs. We've been going to her for years, and when the time came for us to say good bye to one of our older kitties, she was so compassionate, and helped us to know we were making the best, most humane decision. Dr. Betsy Arnold should be sainted- I'm not kidding.

My cats and I had a great experience with this vet. They were professional and kind to my cats and the prices are so much better than any other vet in Rochester. I have already recommended Dr. Arnold to friends and will continue to do so.

I am somewhat perplexed by the individual who gave Caring For cats a poor review. Dr. Arnold and the CFC staff are excellent. They are absolute professionals and her prices are WAY better than anyone else you will find around town. I drive all the way from Penfield to Greece because I save money and I know my cats will be getting the best care. This facility is highly recommended!!

This is a horrible place to go if you want your cat to be treated well. We brought our cat that was very very sick there because someone told us that that was the place to go. Bad choice! The poor kitten had to be put to sleep and they treated her like she was a rag doll. They didn't even let us say goodbye and as we were leaving in tears, they didn't even have the respect to close the door as they were putting her to sleep so everyone in the waiting area including me could hear the poor kitten and what was being done! Do not ever take your cats here! They were even treating other peoples cats horrible and shooing them around the "cat hospital." If you do go there do not let the lady with the red hair take your cat, she is very very insensitive and rude! If you love your cats, do not go here!

Just wanted to say that Caring For Cats has to be the best place I have ever taken make cats to. Dr. Arnold is reasonable with prices and answers any questions you may have. My cat has a urinary track problem which caused him to be hospitalized. If I had taken him anywhere else it would have cost me about $500 and with Dr. Arnold, let's just say she was under $300 and that was for 4 days in the hospital with meds, fluids, and catheter. Thanks to the staff and Dr. Arnold for taking care of my baby.

After years of owning cats and visiting other local veterinarians, Caring For Cats continues to be our favorite. Dr. Arnold is extremely knowledgeable with any problem or illness our cats have experienced, and the staff is helpful and caring. Prices are reasonable and fair, and appointments are kept on schedule with no long waits that I have experienced over the years.

We have started to take our 2 cats to Dr. Arnold, after an aquaintance referred us to her. She is very caring, like the name of her practice. She is not high priced or high pressure. She knows her stuff, as my cat has a medical problem. It is so nice to have finally found a good vet that I can entrust my pets to. Thank-you, Dr. Arnold.
