My cat was under treatment for not eating. He was given various treatments which failed to improve his condition. Dr. Ask stated that there would probably be no improvement and left the final decision to me. When he stopped eating for 3 days I asked him to make a housecall for the purpose of euthanizing the cat. He arrived with a technician, gave a sedative injection and 1-2 minutes later gave the injection to stop the heart. As soon as he administered that injection the cat let out a horrific scream which lasted for 10-15 seconds and which I will hear for the rest of my life. I was too schocked to speak. He bit through his tongue as he died. When questioned the next day dr. Ask said that such outcomes are not unusual. Draw your own conclusions.

I used to take my cats to Cats Only when I lived in the King of Prussia area. It was awesome to go to a vet that specializes in cats... no huge dogs to freak your cat out in the waiting room! Their service was excellent. I'm only sorry I've been unable to find a vet I like as much here on the Main Line.

We take all three of our cats to Cats Only had truly love it. The staff is so friendly and really makes you feel welcome. Major - the vet cat- is a dollbaby and helps pass the time while you are waiting. My favorite aspect of this vet clinic is that they specialize in cats. No other animals are in the waiting room other than cats. This makes it a lot easier!!

I had been going to this Vet for about two years on and off. One day I brought my cat in for a scheduled check up. It was just before closing. The assistant came in and was kind and attentive. When the vet came in he appeared agitated and apprehensive. My cat sensed this and withdrew in fear. He had never done this before. In an effort to gain control of my cat the Vet attempted to distract him. He then forcefully grabbed my cat by his neck. My poor cat let out the most horrible scream I had ever heard. The assistant came in the room to see what had happened as I am sure my cats scream was heard in the surrounding streets. He told her to shut the door. My poor cat then began to urinate and defecate all over the room, obviously in fear of his life. My cat continued to scream louder and louder. The Vet was holding my cat improperly and hurting him. There was feces and urine everywhere. The Vet then took my cat into the back room to clean him up. I was in shock at the way he handled my cat. It was horrendous. My spouse asked why our cat was defecating everywhere and the Vet responded, ""There is a term for being this scared."" \nI will never go back there again. I don't care if he was having a bad day. That was my dear pet he handled like a rag. After all that, no apology or anything. I would not advise ANYONE TO EVER GO THERE. I have expressed my opinion to this Veterinarian directly. My poor cat hid from me for 6 days after this experience. Never go here if you love your pet . I intend to use everything

My cat feels calm when going here. At first I was not happy to take the dogs and cat to different places but it is worth it.
