I have two geriatric kitties with ongoing health issues. Andrew is 16 and Daisy is 14. They both are very reluctant to visit the vet even though during their lives that have each been to the vet many times. I started going to Dr. Stroup at the Animal Hospital of West Bay in Largo, Florida, after seeing an article about her in the St. Petersburg Times. I was impressed by the fact that she had opened her own business after working at others in the area for many years. I made the appointment and have been taking my kitties there ever since. I cannot tell you what a difference it makes to have a vet like Dr. Stroup who genuinely cares about the animals and practices the latest and greatest veterinary medicine!!! Dr. Stroup offers so many wonderful services. She's young enough to be energetic but has enough experience to be very, very wise!!!! Try her out, I think you will be pleased and so will your pet!
