    Can anyone recommend an animal clinic/SPCA/nonprofit organization in Burlington County area?

    Here's a thread I posted regarding my cat. http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t44556 I'm afraid it's going to turn into another mess like it did with my last cat (for those who know the story) where they retest and retest and they dont find out whats wrong until its too late. Well, now it has started with my other cat, Cody. The vet called, ACTUALLY- let me correct myself - I HAD TO CALL THEM, a few minutes ago for Cody's results and Cody's #s came back the same so he has to know be tested again to determine WHAT TYPE of clotting it is, factor 6,7, 9 or 10 or some SHIT like that. Some are really bad and some aren't so bad.

    I am so fed up at this point but of course I want to take care of him, I just can't afford these vet bills! Last week Cody got rabies, a wellness test, urine, & blood and it cost $277! Sat they did a PTT retest it was 16.00 (and only b/c I argued that I shouldn't have to pay another 50.00 for an error that might have happened-which it turns out wasnt an error though) And now I have to bring him in again, the poor guy, so they can take more blood, and what is next after that god only knows. In Philly we took our pets to the SPCA, I never felt like I went through this before, and it def wasn't so much $. I looked on line for NJ clinics however I never heard of these places and dont know how good they even are, I'd rather be recommended by someone. Can anyone help?! I just need to be sure they will do a good job with Cody and find out wtf is going on, and they aren't going to charge me an arm and a leg.

    Thanks!

      we see Dr. Karen Hoffman but all the Doc there are really great and they have a 24 Hour Emergency Center - it is right off of Rt. 38 on Mt. Laurel Road.

      hope everything is OK!

                I use the Banfield Clinic in Pet Smart. It used to be in the Delran Petsmart on 130, but they closed it down and moved to Mt. Laurel.

                Other than that my groomer is a big fan of the Willingboro Animal Clinic. We use Laura's Grooming that is right next door to it.

                  Jac - sorry i didn't see this till now - it is a regular Vet office and an emergency hospital. i have never been to an SPCA clinic so i am not sure what that is??

                  Jess - that is so weird - we used to take Mabel to Willingboro - our Vet used to be a Vet there - it is OK - the staff are kind of bitchy and i think they are way more expensive than Mount Laurel Animal Hospital - also there are a couple Vets there we really didn't like AT ALL - bad attitudes and bedside manner kind of thing - just an FYI!

                      Weird! I live like 5 minutes north up route 130 from that place. I've never been there myself so I have no idea how the staff is. Good to know though because we were thinking of switching since Mt. Laurel is a bit further from us.
