I will be moving to Liverpool, NY, right outside Syracuse, NY shortly (2 weeks give or take).

Does anyone know of a reliable vet around Syracuse?

My "wishlist" is for a vet who charges fair rates, has a clean facility, competent/helpful staff and preferably someone who won't look at me as if I have 3 heads when I tell them I plan to feed raw for the rest of my cat's life.

I know I can't have everything, but if anyone has any good/great experiences with vets in that area, I'd appreciate the info!

my uncle lives in syracuse and while he and his family do not have any cats he is a rn at the hospital so i am sure he can ask around and get some feedback. he is out of town right now so i won't be able to get any recommendations for perhaps a week. i will post any vets that seem like a good fit.

enjoy the cold and snow:smile:

Hi All!

We are up in Syracuse/Liverpool, happy and healthy. Still working out some kinks in housing but that should all settle in place by Friday! (I've been promised...)

Matti is having a wonderful time exploring new digs, and once I get my rhythm of classes, etc. set in my mind, we'll be exploring the best vet options using your suggestions. Thanks for the input!

When I recently moved I did a google search for vets. There were TWO within easy driving distance that were Cat only. THen I looked into their web pages and found that one of them has a Vet that is licensed in acupuncture and uses Chinese Herbal therapy. I was impressed...then i got to the nutrional section where it plainly states

In addition to commercial foods, we may recommend a balanced raw diet.
My heart started pitter pattering :p

I called them and made an appointment to TALK to the vet(s) and took both cat's records with me(not cats yet). We sat down and talked about vaccines, nutrition, age and other health issues AND they let me observe them handling a couple of cats while they treated them (in overnight for various reasons). Then the ICING on the cake...they didn't charge me for this visit. The vet's opinion was that all owners should put this much time/effort into choosing a new vet.

This may not be helpful, but just saying...it's how i found my newest vet and as long as there isn't a complete change and the cats don't *hate* them.... i'm staying!

Matthias, Just found your post when I was google searching vets around syracuse. I realize you posted the a long time ago, but did you find a good vet? I am looking to make a switch, and am in the same area.

The url didnt come up correctly on my computer Im on so Ill post this for the Stack Veterinary Hospital.

Stack Veterinary Hospital / Home

I was reading thru their site and they are AAHA accredited. that is a plus too! Looks like a good place.

Urr one bad thing is they are talking out of both sides of their mouth about declawing. (my hot button)
