I brought my cat in to be checked by Dr. Fetcher due to him being overly agitated, depressed and anxious (as well as urinating on things he normally didn't). The doctor insisted that the cat had anxiety problems and sent me home with him. A couple months later he had to be put down for renal failure. I believe that this could have been avoided and he was only 5 years old. While he has been a fine enough vet for the other animals of my family, I really do feel like he dropped the ball with this one and now I am mourning the loss of my cat over something that could have been treated.

My family has taken our pets to Dr. Fecher for many years. Dr Fecher is knowledgable and I can always count on him to diagnose our pets accurately. His staff is wonderful, and caring. I recommend his practice with 100% confidence to any pet parent in the area.

This is my second dog I am taking to Dr. Fecher. I tell everyone with a new pet or have a vet they aren't happy with to take their pet to him. My whole family takes their dogs to Dr. Fecher's office. Everyone has always been very friendly and when my first dog died they were very compassionate with me. Whether it is for vet care or boarding I feel they take such good care of my pet.

I brought my Siamese cat in, because she had stopped eating and drinking for almost a week. They gave her fluids, did blood work, and gave her a shot of steroids; because she had a hyperactive thryoid, she was put on medicine. Well, she still wouldn't eat a few days later and I called the office. The receptionist/whoever said that she was starving to death and I should "make a decision to bring her in soon". In other words, they wanted me to bring her in to put her to sleep. I decided to get another opinion, because I could not imagine that my 9 year old cat was ready for death; nor was I ready to give up on her. So, I took her to another cat doctor and lo and behold; they gave her some valium and scraped some placque off of her teeth, and she began to eat and drink immediately. They asked if she is hard to medicate and since she is, they recommended that instead of trying to squirt medicine down her throat (the stuff Fecher gave her), I medicate her with a substance that will be absorbed into her skin. Otherwise, there is no benefit to the thyroid medication ! Also, they are giving me a special diet for her that is especially for cats with eating issues. So, instead of killing my kitty, the new vet saved her life ! I think Dr. Fecher's office was not interested in really getting to the root of her problem, but instead, just wanted me to put her down. I am SO glad I went for another opinion !!

My whole family has used Dr. Fecher for years. First it was Dr. Buzby & Dr. Fecher. We love him & his staff. They are all so friendly and caring & Dr. Fecher has a great sense of humor. They have taken great care of all our dogs & we always recommend them to anyone who is looking for a vet.

My parents began taking our dogs to Dr. Buzby more than 40 years ago. Dr. Fecher was his young assistant. After Dr. Buzby retired, Dr. Fecher took the office over. He has always been an intelligent and kind doctor. He has taken care of six of our dogs and three of our cats. We always board our dogs with them because they take loving care of the dogs. So much so that our dog(s) get upset when it is time to leave! My children now grown also take their dogs to Dr. Fecher. I do not know what we would do without Dr. Fecher, his lovely wife and his excellent staff. They are the best of the best!

I got a puppy a year ago and my brother-in-law recommended Dr. Fecher. He is magnificent. He is very knowledgable and his staff is great. They are in room when Haley is being examined and they are great with her. My dogs get great care when I take them there. I wouldn't go to anyone else.

My aunt also uses Dr Fecher for her 2 cats and previous dog and recommended me to him when I got my puppy. My dog has been going there since he was 6 weeks and he's more then 2 years now. Dr Fecher and everyone on his staff are so knowledgable, nice and helpful. They encourage you to call with any questions and they are great in getting you an immediate appointment if it's needed. They also have evening hours a few times a week which is important for those who work. My dog needed surgery when he was 9 months and I was extremely nervous but everyone there was great and it went seamlessly. I highly recommend Dr Fecher.

Dr. Fecher is wonderful! I wouldn't take my pets anywhere else!He's wonderful with the animals, answers all of your questions, and has a warm and friendly staff. I can't speak for everyone, but, at least with our pets, he always has been "on target" with his diagnoses and recommendations. We love him!

I have never used this vet, but I am involved with the dog club, and many of the breeders take there dogs to Dr. Fecher. He has been in business for a very long time and enjoys an excellent reputation amongst both breeders and rescue people. If I had a dog with a problem, this is where I would go.

PROS: Excellent reputation
CONS:
