Dr. Kress really cares about cats, goes out of his way to administer the necessary medical treatment. If it weren't for him, we would have many more cats around than we have already. He is a kind, sincere, intelligent doctor who cares more for the animals than in making profits.I don't know what our rescue would do without him. I highly recommend this vet!

Dr. Kress is one of the most wonderful vets I've ever encountered. He cares more about helping cats than in making a profit. I only wish there were more vets like Dr. Kress, as he makes this world a much better place.

WOW! First of all, when I called to make an appointment I left him a message with my phone number and my work phone number, and he called me back at 7:30 AM, 8:00 AM, and twice at my work! That should have been my first sign he is

Despite what i have read in any of the terrible reviews, i have nothing but good things to say. i brought my cat here. my father also had both of his male cats neutered here and they are all fine. my cat zoey means more than anything to me, so when i saw the smelly house, shaky hands, and other sick cats, it made me nervous. but my dads cats had come here and were fine. so i had faith. and he doesnt just do surgery and give you back your cat on hours. he kept me zoey for 2 days, and when i got her back she was not happy :( she was angry and went at the other cats. but like i thought, after a few days of peace and quiet in her own room back at home, she was fine. the stiches took 3 full weeks to fall out all of the way, i had her in my room with no other cats for 2 weeks. (my cats like to play fight, this could have torn her stitches.) and now that they have all fallen out and my kitty is better than ever ( and not spraying on my stuff) im very happy to write this review and let everyone know this Dr. Kress is a good man with a good heart and he may be rude to you but he cares about the cats. why else would he dedicate his life to doing this for poeple?

I didn't even bring my cat in. I made the appointment. Dr. Kress was very pushy and basically set up the appointment and hung up on me. Oh and before he hung up he said make sure you bring cash. How shady is that. He wanted me to pay $45 to neuter my cat which included shots & stuff. I told him may cat already had his shots. He said well then he will get them again. My cat isn't even a year old yet. Anyways, when he called to confirm the appointment I basically told him I decided to go somewhere else & that I didn't want to pay that amount of money because I found a fantastic place that will neuter my male for $28 and they are highly recommended and are very nice over the phone. Plus they have an actual website you can look at. It's called the spay and neuter clinic on fulton rd in cleveland. Anyways, when I told Dr Kress I was coming. He literally flipped out and yelled at me. His exact words were "well then ma'am why in the hell did you make the appointment in the first place. You wasted my time"! I called back to give him a piece of my mind and when he answered he told me to "F OFF", but said the full word. I mean what kind of vet talks like that. Also, what kind of vet says your cat can eat and drink all day and then you bring them in, then do the surgery and you take them back home with in a couple hours. That cannot be safe!!!! Please check out Spay and Neuter Clinic or ANY place else before you even call this Dr. Kress.

Quite a few years ago a stray showed up at my house. This cat was nothing short of a HOT MESS! He was limping, covered in flea bites, almost deaf because his ears were so impacted

Do not take your cat here...too many have died in the past month to distemper, and he keeps bringing them in. The place is a pig sty and so is the vet. He slings the cats around when he has a bad day. overcharges everyone...Have u ever gotten a r eturn phone call with a mechanical voice over the phone with these words "I kno u're a genious ...How do u do it?! its a lil toy he uses to get back at people. There is so much going on there, if u really want to kno just ask me here.......

The man that claims he owns this place is a liar, i called to schedule an appointment for my 2 year old female Persian Cat and this man said that he had 23 years of private Practice Veterinary experience and i looked on the Cleveland Better Business Bureau and there are like 5 complainants on this business just within the last 6 months, and on top of that this man that claims he has owned this business for 23 years just opened this business in '98 that was only 12 yeah its still a while being a vet but, the Bottom Line is HE LIED.... Well i gave it the benefit of the doubt and went to check out the place, and the place is FILTHY and it wreaks sooo bad, the man that was there looked to be eccentric and very shaky, he was not very friendly and the person who went with me had heard bad things about this place b4 but i wouldn't listen, so my friend asks if we are able to see where he does is operations before we even considering leaving MY cat there, the man refused to show us even the "office" and said we were too nosy for him to fix our cat, well i dont know what this idiot thinks but im not just gonna leave my little fur baby there with no idea if it will come back sick due to unsanitary dwellings, so we told the guy to forget about it all that we were going to go to a reputable vet that wasn't as shaky, because i wouldn't want a surgeon operating on me with shaky hands, and he got all heated (mad) because we decided to take our business else where, THIS PLACE IS NOT PROFESSIONAL AT ALL.... and it turns out i heard from a reputable source that the reason why he wont show where he does his "work" is because its a table top on top of a Rubbermaid storage bin.... IF I WAS YOU I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY NOT EVEN MY WORST ENEMY!!

I Called a Snip in Time recently to check prices on a Male cat Neutering, I had to leave a message, when my call was returned 4 hours later, I wasn't able to make it to my cell so it went to voice mail when i finally went on break and listened to my voice mail, what i heard shocked the hell out of me, the most meanest and rude man claiming to be a vet with 23 years of veterinary practice behind him, was screaming and yelling because he didnt like my voice mail greeting, ( i have a voicemail telling telemarketers to please not leave a message) he told me in this message "that i had too much baggage to for him to fix my cat, and to run on down the street to the next person and leave them a message to fix my cat.... for having 23 years veterinary experience he sure is not very professional, i have also heard bad things from people in the area about the place being filthy dirty, and the "vet" being very unstable. So i know i wont be calling this poor excuse for an experienced vet back, and i would trust a poor defenseless in this quacks hands!!

Pros: NONE AT ALL

Cons: RUDE, INCONSIDERATE, DIRTY, LIAR

Dr. Cress probably knew from the time he was a little boy that he would walk an uphill path. Many can't begin to understand him because they are unable to rationalize how someone so intelligent and well-trained can give up so much for a cause that seems so overwhelming... but he does.

Society for the Protection of Animals, Inc. applauds Dr. Cress' determination to make a difference... AND HE DOES.

He is no nonsense because his life's mission is overwhelming. He doesn't care if he has a beautiful home with a pond and horses running through his field because material things aren't what soothes his heart.

Dr. Cress has dedicated his life to spay and neuter, but what, exactly, does that mean?

It means that when a litter of kittens is dumped in an alley, taped shut in a box, and someone finding the kittens brings them in to his office, it makes his heart pound with immense pain and anger. He keeps asking himself over and over, "Who could have done this? How can anyone cause suffering like this and walk away?"

He allows himself to feel the pain and embraces it, knowing that that is the only way he will ever truly make a real difference.

Dr. Cress' dedication to making a difference is honored by S.P.A.

Is Dr. Cress your normal suave, carbon copy veterinarian? Absolutely not! And we can thank God for that!

Cons: Lives with less so he can fulfill his life's mission.

True rock bottom prices or below. Dr. Cress does what
he says and arrives when he says he will. He does not
sugarcoat or hold your hand. He knows his stuff and
is strictly business. I believe the prices he charges do
not cover even half the real cost of spay and neutering.
I highly recommend him to anyone with a feral cat problem
or anyone on a limited buget. Do not give cats to animal
control or humane society, all ferals will be put down. If you are willing to feed these creatures, save their lives and stop the population explosion, have Dr. Cress trap, neuter, spay and return the cats to your backyards for life. He is a saint in HOBO clothing. God Bless him and his good works.

People need to get over THEMSELVES and stick to the reason they contacted Dr Kress in the first place. Its about who will care for the ANIMALS, not the humans egos. I called Dr Kress because I became the mother of 2 kittens who's siblings passed from the cold due to the mother moving them into a box i had on my porch waiting for Purple Hearts to pick up. My children found the 2 surviving kittens and brought them into the house. Even though I am allergic to cats and have 2 dogs, we ran to Petco to buy formula and bottles to try to save these 2 little ones, I found Dr Kress online and left him a message at 10:30pm. He returned my call the next day and even though someone just dropped 5 kittens off on him, he offered to take in my 2 new babies the following day. He asked questions about the babies and gave me pointers to help them until I could bring them to him after getting off work the next day. He was waiting for me at precisely the designated time, he went right to getting a bed together for them, told me he would feed them and do the "mothering" to keep everything in working order. He thanked me for caring enough to try to save them and never asked for a dime! I asked to give him a donation and he said anything would be greatly appreciated.... He was not rude, we handled the business I came in for and I felt very comfortable leaving these babies with him. Even though he probably had a very long day and more to do after he closed up shop at 7:30PM... he gave me a moment to say goodye to my little ones. He gave me his card and said to call to check up on them. I will tell everyone about how compassionate he is to the animals we entrust him with and will ask my friends and family to give their donations to his business because there are not many caring people like him willing to help so many kitties! I wish I could give him more than 5 stars for what he does and a muzzle for the people who can't get past their emotional/personal needs and who have a need to bash someone who is focused on their calling which is helping the ANIMALS!! I know there will be a special place in Heaven for Dr Kress!!

Cons: People that have nothing nice to say

I took 2 females to be spayed. No he doesent have the best bedside manner but he truly does care about your cat.If you go there expecting a full service vet office this is not the place for you. He charges a low cost for surgery and itemizes any extra supplies he uses on your pet.people dont realize what a cat population problem cleveland has.the price also includes shots and nail trim - call gateway and ask for a quote...

I know, I've been to Dr. Kress at least 3 times, maybe more. Let me tell you he has a heart for cats! I know what the office looks like, not too clean, crowded, & a LOT of cats in cages that people have abandoned that he is trying to place. When I no longer have to care for my aging mother & father that live with me, and have finished raising my family (still have kids at home) I just might see if I can volunteer for him. I believe in him. I rescue feral cats & have taken at least 3 that I can remember to him. He actually named one of my ferals for me as he wanted the cat to have a name, and I hadn't named her. He gives so much for so little! All of my cats turned out very well. You get vaccinations and worming along with the spay/neuter for practically free! Yeah, he can't afford a lot of help & fancy trimmings, but my experiences there have been nothing but positive. You should engage him in conversation, and you will learn a lot! He gets 2 thumbs up & 5 stars from me!

I think it's absurd that someone would complain about the place, and give it ONE star, and in the same breath admit to having taken all their pets there! Are you crazy? If you don't like the place, or are so offended by the person over the phone, why do you proceed to take your animal and leave it there for 2 days?

This man is dedicated to what he does, which is why he does it for less than half of what normal vets do it for. I've taken several pets to him and recommend him to every one I know. I also have friends that have taken their animals there and recommend him highly.

Yes, the place stinks, yes the man is a little left of center, but so what? You want to be able to trust your animal to someone that truly loves animals? This is your guy. He's not some money hungry guy, if he was, he wouldn't charge what he charges which is practically nothing. Please! Don't believe the bad hype.

He's not some money hungry guy, if he was, he wouldn't charge what he charges which is practically nothing. Please! Don't believe the bad hype.

Pros: Man is truly dedicated to his work.

Cons: The place is very humble (a little stinky)

.

I have taken several cats to this clinic. While not the neatest place in the world, Dr. Kress is thorough and really cares about the cats. I also know several other folks that have taken cats in and were completely happy with the results and the price. He is not mean, just all business. He will strongly advise folks on what is and is not good practice for a cat, such as having them de-clawed...not a good thing....

He is extremely mean- screamed at me on the phone and made me feel guilty about a stray cat I am trying to find a home for and had to take it to animal control. He is rude and the Cleveland APL has had many complaints about him!

Planning to take MY FRIEND'S 2 cats there, because she never got them spayed a few years ago...

We already have a house of SPAYED AND NEUTERED animals--all of whom were rescues. This friend was going to move, not take her cats with them and dump them off at a shelter that euthanizes if they don't get adopted right away. I volunteered to take them into my own home, provide them with a safe and clean environment, and SPAY them at my own cost, before finding them new homes. When my friend dropped them off, she informed me that one or both were pregnant. I had already set up appointments with A Snip in Time before they even arrived at my home.

I called A Snip in Time to explain about the pregnancies, and he screamed at me and hung up the phone! THEY WEREN'T EVEN MY CATS AND I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS! He never let me get a word in edgewise to explain this. His bedside manner I would rate at a big zero.

Long story short, we later took them months later to be spayed and I waited in the parking lot while my husband took them in. He told me the place was a dump inside. I didn't even want to deal with this creep. AND the price quoted is just a base price=beware! It's total B.S.-by the time we paid, we ended paying 3-4x the advertised price and these weren't even my cats!

On Thursday, we are taking a puppy we adopted to be spayed, as we are big proponents of spaying and neutering, and we will pay the regular price and know our little loved one will be treated right and so will we, as we believe we deserve to be treated with dignity and respect as well (as our vets do).

Pros: Can't think of any--will pay extra to go to regular vet

Cons: Rude, hostile and weird + Bait and Switch Operation

.

truly loves cats, does a great job, doesnt care bout clients . stingy, cheap, ecentric,stinks , bothj clinic and person. Bad attitude, uses people makes them feel guilty if they dont leave a donation, not a giving person, unless you're a cat. prices are cheap. even with the extras! Very Rude.

Pros: cats is all he cares about

Cons: overcharges most, especially if he doesnt like you.

.

He is not LOW-COST! My cat has a regular vet, but I qualify for low income neuter services and my regular vet said I should try those first. So I called Dr. Kress, who after a 45 second call he hung up on me! I told him I only wanted the $45 dollar neuter, and no antibiotics or whatever make his amount DOUBLE before he even see's the cat. I told him my cat was at the vet TODAY, and was OK. Dr. Kress told me I still would need to bring an extra $40 for a Urinary tract Infection. WHAT??!! He diagnoses over the phone? He completely disregarded that my cat was at his vet TODAY. What is wrong with this man?

I bet there is not one person leaving these 5 star ratings that walked out of his office paying the $45 he claims to offer.

First of all anyone who does this kind of work day in and day out for the money he does must be a little
excentric. So What!!!!!!!!!! I guarantee you no one cares about cat welfare like this gentleman. When I
did not know where to turn he came to my rescue to trap and neuter two stray starving kittens in my
backyard in Mentor. This was not close to his place by any stretch of the imagination. He even slept in
his van waiting for the second kitten to enter the trap. He spayed one and neutered one and gave them
the rabies, flea treatment. They were kept for a week to heal. He also returned them and repeated the
process when a feral Tom who showed up a couple of months later. The price was CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP. You people who complain have no idea what a dedicated and wondrful human being this man is. Months later he dropped off antibiotics to put in cat's food for eye infections. I now feed, house and care
for these 3 cats. I provide flea treatment, food and shelter. The little female comes into the kitchen and
sits on my lap an purrs and I then give her Temptation Treats and she is off. She also wears a collar
with my name and address now. The three 3 cats have given my father and I months of enjoyment as
they line up at the sliding door morning and night for their grub. They also sleep in the shelter we made
and put outside against the house to block the wind. This gentleman's sole
existance is to help save and care for the unwanted stray cat population. I give him a standing ovation.

Pros: A Total Thumbs Up!!!!!!!!

I don't disagree with the akwardness of the place. I was referred to Dr. Kress when I took in a cat to save her from going to the pound. I later found out... She was pregnant! Nine kittens later I was wondering how I was going to provide for them all. I'm not into neglecting animals. A lady I work with told me that she had taken alot of cats to Dr. Kress b/c they get dumped where she lives in the country. According to her she had taken at least 20 cats to him. She reported that she had never had one cat get an infection or have a negative outcome. I took all of the kittens and the mommy cat to him and he treated them wonderfully. He does have you bring extra cash, but even if he does charge the extra, it is still extremely less than going to a regular vet that will charge way more. If you have cats that need GOOD care and you are low on the money...consider Dr. Kress. He does more than he charges for and really loves the cats.

Pros: great prices, really loves the cats, is making a difference for the greater good

Cons: cluttered office, not to personable

.

Alright, so at first I was a bit scared to take my cat to Dr. Kress... But I finally got up the nerve because I don't have the money to go to another vet. I just took in a stray cat and named him Max =) He rocks! Anyway, Max is about 4-6 months old (I'll find out tomorrow exactly how old). I dropped Max off last night at 8 o'clock... Of course the office had a cat smell!! Look at what this man does for all the cats in the community!!! The cages were so clean, and the cats he had there that were in the cages seemed very happy and wanted to be loved as if Dr. Kress did show them love. Dr. Kress asked me to call this afternoon to find out how Max was doing... Do you know he called ME and let me know Max was just waking up from surgery and doing very well? He seems very quiet, as if he doesn't get out much, but Dr. Kress has yet to give me the impression of being rude. Bottom line is... If you're in a jam for money, or you just can't afford a regular vet, take your kitten/cat to Dr. Kress and let him care for it. Dr. Kress obviously loves cats. As soon as I handed him Max, he kissed him on the head and pet him, which of course made Max purr!!! So, yes, I recommend Dr. Kress.

Pros: Very kind and loving towards the cats/kittens, cheap, very knowledgable, close to home, cages are clean

Cons: Only takes cash.

I called him, in help with the Kitten I adopted from my Garage, and a way to help out his mom, which is still outside. I found that he had no interested in talking to me, once I told him the remainder of the Cats that were in my Garage, were given to the Animal Warden. He did not let me explain, how I tried to find someone to come and fix the ones outside, so they could continue live and not be put down. In fact he rudely hung up on me, when I tried to explain.

Pros: Don't know he hung up

Cons: Very RUDE, hung up before hearing what happened.

.

I was hesitant to use this vet because of the negative reviews I had read here, depite the fact that I was referred by a friend. But I figured I'd try it out, and was determined to leave with the stray I was bringing in if I felt Dr. Kress was not the vet for me.
Upon entering I understood where some of the concerns stemmed from: the place is cluttered and smells strongly of cats. (I agree with the reviewer who said that DUH, the cat smell is directly related to the fact that he works with many cats, and feral cats to boot.) But it is not dirty by any means: basically he has a lot going on in two small rooms. The cages and examination area were tidy. And surprisingly (again, because of all the warnings) I found Dr. Kress to be very warm, maybe a little shy, and all-business. Maybe we had a rapport between us, but he was friendly and nice. And he treated the cat I brought in with care and concern. I was told to call in the next night to check in on it's status, and was able to pick him up the following morning. I was satisfied with pricing, and fine with paying in cash ahead of time, which I had been advised on the telephone while setting up my appointment.
When I arrived for pick-up at 7:30am, this is what I saw: a steady stream of all kinds of people going in and out with their cats, and two young tuxedo cats sitting across the street just gazing at the doctor's office with full-force, seeminly wishing they had a reason to be admitted. It was overall a good omen. I like Dr. Kress, and I will use his services again if need be.
Please do not go to A Snip in Time if anything you have read in the reviews makes you doubtful that this is a place for you... a traditional vet's clinic this is not. By slagging Dr. Kress because of your own comfort issues, you are doing a terrible diservice to the Cleveland community who is so very lucky to have such a dedicated man in our midst, helping to keep the cat population in check.

I give Dr.Kress from a Snip in Time a lot of credit. He has totally dedicated his life to cats. He may be very impersonable with people but he is wonderful and sweet with all the cats. Just the way he talks to them, refers to them by their names and he even feeds them Fancy Feast! Yes, he's not the friendliest person but he wants to do his part in trying to control the overwhelming stray cat population and I applaud him for that. I had a couple stray cats hanging around my house and suddenly had 3 more kittens to add to the bunch. I called my local vet who informed me they would not fix any cat without giving them an examination first. Even if it was a totally wild cat! This would end up costing a minimum of $130 per cat. I told them they were all strays and I was just trying to help control the stray cat population to see if they could give me a discount for doing all 5 cats at once. The vet said no and said they refused to do the surgery without all the other stuff to charge me for. You would think a vet would understand. So that's when I found A Snip in Time. Yes, I had to pay in cash, the place didn't look like a high tech ER and the Dr. didn't roll out the red carpet for me but it cost me $225 to spay, neuter, de-flea, de-worm and vaccinate ALL 5 Cats instead of $650 + God know how much more! Plus one of the cats had an open wound on it's head and Dr. kress kept it longer to give it antibiotics and to treat the wound. He didn't charge me for the medicine or boarding of the cat overnite for a few days. My local vet would've charged a minimum of $50 a day just for the boarding alone! He actually came to my house, set up a bunch of traps, caught and transported all the cats to and from his vet to me! He was an angel sent for me because one of the cats was also pregnant with 5 more kittens!!!!!!!!! Dr. Kress also travels around to feed a couple colonies of ferral cats EVERY day. He is the most compassionate person to cats I've ever met!

I did not want to do it but I had to take my dog in to be spayed and nutured. It was hard to do, but I know it is worth it. The doctor was very informative and did a good job with my dog.

The Doctor came to our home to trap 6 feral cats. He spade and neutered them and cared for them.

The weather was cold and wet so he kept them and cared for them till they were well enough to be returned to our yard.

Six cats and it did not break the bank.

This Doctor loves cats!!!!

Okay, so this vet may dislike people (can't really blame him) but he LOVES cats and works very hard. He obviously puts all of the money he makes back into the cats. The cages look expensive and he feeds Fancy Feast to the cats after treatment. He is very affectionate with them as well. Not only did he help me find a nonprofit group (Love a Stray) to adopt out a litter of stray kittens I found, but he also neutered one of the cats that I took in, and did a wonderful job. I had already taken the cat to my regular vet and he charged me 3X more than Dr. Kress would have for vaccines and a checkup-- $175.00. He totally overlooked the fact that kitty had a terrible case of ear mites and an eye infection (a form of cat herpes) which I learned later affects 80 - 90% of all cats (look it up). I hope that the mechanic working on my usual vet's Lexus doesn't overlook his brakes! Anyways, if I had gone to Kress first, I would have only had to pay $75.00 for vaccines and a neuter. By the way, he did not charge me for treating the ear mites. The clinic is a bit stinky, but that's because the guy takes in every cat that is dumped on his door and those cats seem awfully happy to me. One has to look past the superficial stuff and realize that this guy is on the front lines trying to fix the overwhelming stray cat problem we have. HE IS NOT IN IT FOR THE MONEY!!!

Pros: Genuinly passionate about his work.

Cons: Does not care for people as much as he does for animals.

This guy needs to be investigated. Why would you want a vet like this to take care of your animals? His place needs investigated. What a nightmare. He is rude and all he is after is money (cash to be specific) despite his *cheap* prices. For all you pet owners out there - please do not take your pets here. Spend the extra money - remember you get what you pay for and this person should not be allowed to practice medicine on animals. Absolutely do NOT take your pets to this place you will regret it. He is rude and should not be working in a service oriented business with the public or animals for that matter.

Despite my vet tech roommate declaring my kitty perfectly healthy, and despite being charged 3x for antibiotics when I brought my last 3 kittens in (and only 1 needed them), despite my telling the vet that I still had plenty of antibiotic left over (about 6 months old)..he refused to do the surgery unless I paid for antibiotics for what he delcared was an eye infection (cat has no infection and no discharge from her eye ..ever)..... so I decided to leave. He got angry, tore up the papers he had started to fill out, and slammed the door behind me !!! I was going to praise him prior to this.... he did fine on my other cats, other than over charging for unnecessary meds.... and I would have let him spay my kitty this time too (despite the fact that all the reviewers who mentioned rudness, dirtyness et al are totally correct) I was still going to leave the kitty until he decided to refuse to do the surgery until I agreed to buy the unneeded meds.
If he wants to raise his prices and say he will include this and that FINE.... but to just add on onecessary stuff... nope, fooled me once, not twice !!!

Pros: Advertises good cheap prices. Does care about cats.

Cons: Dirty, can be rude, strange manners, place is a mess.

Yes, this is not like your typical vet's office. It is cluttered and there are other cats living there. And it is mainly targeted towards low-income humans and stray cats. The vet is not very personable, but he improved upon further acquaintance. He definitely and obviously cares A LOT about cats. He was very gentle and loving as he handled them and spoke to them by name. And as a low-income household, the neutering service he provided would not have been affordable for us otherwise. The surgeries healed beautifully and my cats are happy and healthy. I will take stray cats to him in the future for neutering and other services.
If you can afford to go elsewhere and don't personally like the vet or his facility, fine. But if you are on a budget, this is the place for you, as he does an excellent job for a low price. FYI I also found out he makes low-cost housecalls to elderly shut-ins with cats. Now that's dedication and demonstrates a true love of animals! I came to him based on a friend's recommendation, and I would recommend him to others.

Pros: Location, price, quality

Cons: Only takes cash

My first feeling was to pick up my cats and run! But, one of them was already in a cage. He was rude. The place is dirty. He looked dirty too. I think I was overcharged for 'extras', and I was concerned the many other cats that were there could make my cats sick. Maybe that is the real reason he has me buy those antibiotics! Not the eye problem he told me they had. However, I do think my babies were treated ok. When he called me the next day, he referred to them by name. That meant something to me. But I would not recommend the place, and I would never go back.

Cons: clean the place up!

The vet knows what he is talking about. he does seem to care about these cats. he does run out of his house, but i have seen many other vets that do that as well. it smells like cats...because he has a lot of cats. he seems unorganized and the various shelves were dusty, but the cats cages were clean. i personally would not take my cat there, it makes me nervous, but i think if you're tight on cash and need to get your cat spayed/neutered it would be an ok place to go.

A wonderful doctor that really cares about cats. He is very good with the cats and does all he can to help them. Very highly recommended. Also he was very knowledgeable about FIV. And gave us much hope that our cat would live a long, normal life. Different than a lot of vets that seem to think these cats should be euthanatized. He is very generous and it truly in the business to help animals and not for the money. He saved a cat for us that would otherwise probably have died because I couldn?t afford for him to see our normal vet. It?s nice to know that there are vets out there that are willing to help people with a low income help animals.

I think you should know that Dr. Kress cares very much about cats and their well being. He does a lot for the over-populated animals in our neighborhoods by spaying and neutering animals for a very low cost! Once you see his office and all the animals he cares for, you will realize that his main concern is interest of the animals, not the money.

A snip in time is a horrible vet who treats customers like complete garbage and has no respect for them or their animals. I highly recommend anyone in the Cleveland area to find another vet to go to because you are wasting your time with this one.
