Take your cat elsewhere by Bethani C. at InsiderPages
On recommendation of a friend, I took my new kitten to Nob Hill Cat Hospital. When I arrived, the waiting area was not clean and the staff was inattentive. The exam rooms are large but not cleaned or sanitized after or before your visit and any exam is not done in the room. Your cat is taken to the back to be evaluated by the staff. This is disconcerting to me as to their methods. If the rooms are large enough why HIDE the standard treatment they give your cat? My kitten got a flea from another cat in the office which jumped onto it's fur and the vet assumed that he had fleas. Fleas burrow INTO the fur, they don't sit on top of the fur.

On another visit, because my cat was coughing occasionally, the vet said he could have pneumonia or bronchitis which are both very dangerous for a young cat but prescribed hairball medicine which I found out later was for adult cats only. They told me to give my kitten what turned out to be 10 TIMES the amount recommended for an ADULT cat and an oral syringe. A syringe is useless for this molasses-like substance.
I have found a new vet, a more knowledgeable vet who knew immediately what the coughing problem was, simply the stomach valves not functioning properly which is very common in kittens almost a year old. The staff marked on the oral syringe the correct amount and explained in detail what the medicine was and how to give it to my kitten. They also gave my kitten treats and a lot of attention and petting him. The coughing problem has now gone away, thanks to a competent veterinarian whose office doesn't hide the exams they give your animals. Take your cat elsewhere if you care about him or her.
