Labrecque, Kimberly
She is an exceptionally learned vet. (I get the impression that she frequently attends "continuing education" seminars as her knowledge seems to of the moment.). She is personable, establishes good rapport with pets. It is a damned shame that she's such a desirable vet. working in such a mediocre practice (owned by Dr. Dale Skrabalak, who no longer practices himself if I understand correctly this information which came informally from a staff member. He also owns Binghamton Animal Clinic, so he can "hoover" money from the pockets of middle class and working class alike. Compare prices...not very different. But back to Dr Labrecque:. if she were to establish her own practice, alone or with a couple of like-minded others, I'd gladly bring my cats to see her (while also giving "business"... "custom" is a nicer sounding word...to my current providers at the excellent Cat Doctor on E. Main St. in Endicott.).

The Cat Doctor
Staff and vets are gentle w/ animals, always speak in comforting tones when focussed on the "patient." They convey the necessary information clearly, address questions respectfully and answer them thoughtfully (in the original, literal sense of that word). The "LEARNEDness" of all three practitioners becomes evident after speaking w/ any of them for only a short time. Their combined learning is current and wide-ranging. Again, the support staffers are gentle in their handling of their pet patients, speak comfortingly and kindly to the animals (and I can tell it is sincere) - everyone in the practice genuinely loves cats! (I've been surprised in my 25+ years in the "Southern Tier" how many vet. providers examine and handle pets as if they were simply stuffed animals.)The Cat Doctor's office is not overly large, the waiting area is configured comfortably, with a touch of home-spun comfort; there is no music or loud noises - no slammed exam room doors, for example; one or two front desk managers calmly answering quietly ringing phones; and usually three or so friendly office cats sauntering about the place and also a small bookcaseof cat-related reading materials. Which brings me to something I value a lot - NO DOGS! (I like dogs very much, but most, as they are incompletely trained, tend to bark loudly and often which I know disturbs many cats.). Cat owners will have no problem seeing the more important benefits of having a "cats only" practitioner. The Cat Doctor is the only such practice that I know of within at least a hundred mile radius of my town, Endicott, NY.There's more I could say, about how you can actually speak with your vet. on the telephone (sometimes more than once!) instead of having to leave messages and then receive (simplistic) rough translations of your vet's response front front desk personnel. (At my last veterinarians office, it was painfully and offensively clear to me that literally ALL practices were decided upon solely profit-taking concerns. An office manager "allowing" a vet. time to telephone a client removes said vet. from the money-generating up-selling that most businesses are into now. That's NOT the business philosophy you want to contend with when your living pet is at risk health-wise. And more I could say...but I'll try to stop it at this - not the most important consideration, but a necessary consideration nevertheless:. I guess the only reason why I didn't The Cat Doctor five stars overall (and I feel a bit bad about it) is that their excellent care is a bit pricey for me now, since I have become a person in the "soul-sucking" position of being on the dreaded "FIXED INCOME". (And for a variety of reasons, our household has four cats.). But the people at The Cat Doctor show an understanding of this situation (it's not uncommon in this area) and show a willingness to work with their clients and that counts for a lot. Their care is top-notch; they certainly deserve to receive the compensation for it.In a better society than ours, it might be somewhat less, uh, complicated.Bottom line, however:. The Cat Doctor will treat your cat well and most likely guide her successfully back to wellness. And they will do it with respect for the both of you.

Please see my review of her practice, The Cat Doctor. Highly recommend all three vets; their knowledge and ability to problem-solve creatively is unsurpassed, in my 25+ years (ugh!) in this here Southern Tier. (An excellent surgeon, too; she spayed/neutered two of my cats.

I know for a fact that Dr. Wilhelm is the Best Doctor. He is very sincere and will do anything to help your family. He knows his medicine and treatment, he is always there if you need him. I never meet a finer Doctor or Person in the medical field.My family is part of the medical field and I have met MDs and Vets and he is the Best!
Tips & Advices
Most 24-hour clinics do not allow owners to stay with their pets overnight. However, many do have specific visiting hours or will let owners see their pets at any point during the day. In addition, owners can call most clinics at any time for an update on their pet's well being.
  • Important phone numbers, especially those of the the veterinary clinic, the animal hospital or emergency clinic, and the poison control center
  • A book detailing pet first-aid steps
  • Copy of medical records
  • Nylon leash
  • Muzzle (only use if pet is not vomiting and has no difficulty breathing)
  • Absorbent gauze
  • Nonlatex disposable gloves
  • Scissors
  • Tweezers
  • Nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • Sterile saline solution
  • Hydrogen peroxide (to induce vomiting only at the recommendation of a veterinarian
  • Milk of magnesia (to absorb poison only at the recommendation of a veterinarian)
Find a 24-hour animal hospital that provides emergency services within your area. Keep the facility's contact information in a place that's easy to locate, such as the refrigerator, address book, or smartphone. Most veterinary clinics operate on standard business hours and are not equipped to handle emergencies.
Veterinary clinics operate on a smaller scale than animal hospitals. The latter are more likely open 24 hours and provide emergency services. The former generally operate on typical office hours and only perform wellness exams and minor surgeries. Veterinary clinics also do not generally perform laboratory tests on site.
The specifics vary depending on the type of visit. For a wellness exam, bring:
  • Medical records
  • The type or brand of food the pet eats
  • Medication (including flea, tick, and heartworm medication).
If the animal needs medical treatment, the following may be helpful depending on the situation:
  • Fresh stool sample
  • Vomit sample
  • Video of the pet engaging in abnormal behavior
  • Substance the pet may have ingested
