To make a long story short: my cat got an unnecessary abdominal surgery today and I'm on the hook for $3500 because a radiologist read the ultrasound scan wrong and the vets pushed for emergency surgery as a result. Now what do I do? [more inside]
I have a dog, and the vet I take him to is okay. She's nice, I'm sure she's competent, but she's not the best communicator, and for some reason I don't have absolute confidence in her. My dog has a heart issue, and I'm going to want a really good vet as he gets older. Any recommendations? I'm in Park Slope, but would go elsewhere for someone great.

Can I mix interferon with food to dose my cat? She's been diagnosed with stomatitis, a viral mouth infection, so she'll be taking interferon for at least a few months. I'm getting conflicting information from the two vets who have seen her about how to administer it. [more inside]
I'm bringing my eleven-year old cat to the vet tonight for his first teeth cleaning. I know he has to have blood tests first, and that anasthesia will be involved. The vet said there might be some extractions depending on the condition of his teeth. Can anyone give me a ballpark on what this is going to cost? I need to figure out how to juggle my finances to pay for it.

NYCFilter: I don't like my veterinarian. I'd like to switch. Does anyone have any recommendations for vets in the city? I'm in East Williamsburg, and would prefer if said vets could be accessable via the L line.
