A wee bit too far right now lol

Hmm, well that sounds promising! I think it's a toss up between the mobile vet and The Cat Hospital in North York who charge $75/visit.

It's just that I have a hard time with being confronted with someone who is supposed to be the caretaker of my pets that doesn't know that dry food is the worst thing for a cat and they just keep pushing and pushing. You know what I mean?

Hmm, well maybe one day I could pursue it. Thanks for the vote of confidence

Hmm, Oakville's not that far, maybe if she has Saturday hours she could be a contender. I will have to look her up! Thanks aslan!

She has a page on her website that lists a bunch of holistic vets in Ontario - some of which are in your region.
You can try giving them a call. Good luck!
Thanks for the link Sib.HuskyMom!
