    A couple of question about veternarians in Columbus…

    - How much does a visit generally cost?

    - Can anyone recommend a good/somewhat cheap vet?

    - Anyone use the OSU vet teaching hospital? are they any cheaper than going to a normal vet?

    I have a small framed cat that thinks eating is a competitive sport with her sister and occassionally overindulges, and I’m also concerned that she might have a urinary infection, so now that I’m recently moved into a new house, I want to head off any problems.

    I’ve also considered getting them fixed and declawed (we’re trying softpaws, but that seems kind of tragic for them as far as getting them applied – but then again, I would imagine suddenly not having claws after 4 years would be pretty tragic, too)

    I tried Softpaws with my first kitty. They all pop off at different times and are a bitch to keep up with.

    I love Dr. Kristen Caudy at Village Gate Animal Hospital in Grandview-ish. She’s really compassionate.

    We’re discovering this… not to mention, my cats just aren’t thrilled with being held down and glued up. My sweet little angel will growl and hiss and my devious cat is REALLY good at looking and sounding pathetic/betrayed.

    I just keep the cat claws trimmed and have a scratching post I built for them to use if they want to scratch and stretch out. as long as I keep them trimmed there are no scratches on anything and I dont’ bleed when they jump on me.

    Our vet is Worthington Woods Animal Care. Dr. Miller is excellent. We did, however, use OSU vet hospital for both of Harley’s TPLO surgeries. There was only one other place in Columbus performing this type of knee surgery on dogs. OSU was cheaper, closer to our house, and the surgery was performed by a teacher certified in the procedure. All around best choice for us. The service is slower there than at a regular vet, but I would think if you want to save some money, it could be an excellent option. Carl’s Mom used to take horses there.

    We adore Worthington Woods, who care for our dogs and cats. Because they are not in our neighborhood, we did try 2 other vets nearby, but were not as happy with the facilities at either, and even the vet at one. We have not tried Chittenden, and are considering them because we’ve heard so much good about them. However, WW has seen us through 3 major surgeries on Harley (2 TPLO for which they did the diagnosis and aftercare, and surgery and after-care when she was impaled on a fence). We also had an 18 year old lab/doberman mix who died last year. She was too old to travel, and had become incontinent. They boarded her when we traveled, and cared for her so sweetly. They really are wonderful. Just wish they were in the city.

    Never, EVER go to Kristen Caudy in the Grandview area. We boarded our 4 dogs there over the weekend last year and all four dogs came back to us COVERED IN URINE AND FECES. Additionally Kristen Caudy and her workers did not give our elderly dog her medicine, did not feed them the proper food, overcharged us, AND lost the dog bowls that we gave them! When I asked the office manager about this he said, “SOMETIMES THAT HAPPENS.”

    I now take my animals to NorthStar Animal Clinic on Fifth Avenue. Dr. Adam Parsons is wonderful…I highly, highly recommend him.

    I think I went to Mumford years ago when I was in the Short North and really liked him too.
