Curtner Pet Clinic has always provided me and my cat, Lacy, with excellent care. Their office is somewhat difficult to find, but it is well worth seeking them out.
Lacy has hyperthyroidism which is common in cats. She was getting thinner and thinner and seemed very uncomfortable.
I didn't know what might be wrong with her. Since she is my companion, I was very upset and didn't know what to do. I took her to Curtner Pet Clinic as a very nervous pet mom. The staff and doctor demonstrated that they genuinely understood my distress and were very attentive and patient with both of us.
A quick blood test confirmed what the doctor suspected. I was relieved to learn that it was only a matter of medication to correct the imbalance. She is much better now, and is gaining back the weight she had lost. She's a much happier cat, and I am a much happier pet mom.
Even when she needs the unpleasant expression of her anal glands, they never complain or give me "that look" meaning it's a really gross thing to have to do. Lacy feels much more comfortable afterwards, and the added gift to me is she no longer "scoots" along the carpet.
Curtner Pet Clinic is located in the Willow Glen section of San Jose in the shopping center known as The Plant, because it is on the site where the old GE plant was located. They are along Curtner, across from the Oakhill Cemetery, just off the corner of Monterey and Curtner.
When you visit them, tell them you heard about them from Ruth and Lacy.
