My cat first visit, he was 4 months. I moved 8yrs later, and the hospital was too far to travel so I used another vet, except for emergency situations, I always bought him here. When he was diagnosed with kidney failure, I had to bring him back to his "roots" to get a second opinion and continued care. Sadly to say my beloved cat of 17yrs passed away. Now, six months later, I have acquired two kittens. I am still living in the same area, but for my kittens to get the best of care to help them develop into good healthy mature cats, this is their vet. I don't think about the travel time anymore. Dr. Brannen and his staff is wonderful!
