I have lived in midtown for almost 2 years and still use a clinic in Dearborn. The vets are great their price is reasonable.

sorry. couldn't resist myself.

the michigan humane society on the service drive of 75 and west grand blvd right between hamtramck and new center is good i think. it seems a tad on the expensive side, but i figure its going to a good cause seeing as they take care of all the animals.

Cat Practice in Birmingham specializes in cats (obviously) and I know of plenty of people that take their more troubled felines there for care. Here's a link to their website:

I second sid's recommendation for the Detroit MHS. However, I found their prices to be lower than the vet's office. I take my 10 yo corgi mix there. They take really good care of my baby.

Patterson. Jefferson Vet Center had me going around in circles for weeks and lots of $$ for my cat. Said it was an allergy that was affecting his ears Took him to Patterson, and they diagnosed ear mites and it was fixed the first time. Even when Glynes is away on vacation, the other vets are just as cool.

It used to be a nice veterinarian on McNichols and Bradford, but he's been closed for a while. I'm assuming he passed away or retired. There used to be Hoin's on 8 Mile, bu the either died or retired because his name is not on it anymore.

Listen to your other fellow members, lol.

I know it's a bit out of the way, but I couldn't recommend a better vet than Dr. David Carron at Plaza Veterinary in Farmington. On Mooney off of Grand River just past Orchard Lake Rd. 248-476-3662. I friend recommend him to me a few years back and I've never looked for another vet since. He is just wonderful with animals and he has a terrific support staff as well.

I'll second Chalu64's recommendation of Platz AH on Mack (between Beaconsfield & Somerset in GPP.) Chris Platz and the rest of the crew are good people.
This Patterson place sounds like a good option, keep your green in the city if you can, but I've never been there so can't speak to the care.

Dr. Platz was our vet back in the 80's. He took care of our dog from the time she was 6 wks old. She lived to be 16 and Dr. Platz cried right along with us when we had to take her out of her misery. He's a wonderful, compassionate man and I would recommend him to anyone.

This has been like the most helpful thread ever.

If I had a 22 year old cat that needed an IV.... I wouldn't have a cat.

I love the vets at Harper Woods Veterinary Clinic (off the service drive at the Allard exit of 94)- they are really caring an give excellent service. They just saved my cat last week- he ate a part of a shoe and had to have surgery. Too bad they could not do anything to inflate his intelligence so he will stop eating strange things......

But if this thread is inappropriate, I'd like to see it deleted. Or moved. Can't win here! People irritated because I started the thread. People irritated because I asked to have it deleted.

No need to apologize Tkierpiec, just get some thicker skin and KNOW when to ignore certain posts that are not relevant to the thread subject.

Good luck finding a vet to help your kitty cat out.

Sorry, I shouldn't have assumed you were male.

And I don't think you would've gotten all these responses if people were really irritated by you starting the thread.

Typically posts of this nature are in the Detroit Connections thread.

And yes deleting all of your posts so the thread makes absolutely no sense now, is silly.
