Denali and I have been seeing Dr. Neal Sivula @ Dancing Paws Animal Wellness Center.
Paws Up: He seems to get all aspects of 'it'. He understand nutrition, cost of care (he's up front with his prices and where you can get it cheaper), he takes the time to listen, seems to give an honest answer on everything I've asked him, offers a variety of holistic care (acupuncture, herbal supplements, water therapy, etc), and offers chiropractic care
Paws Down: It takes awhile to get an appointment to see him, no X-ray machine
Here's his information:
Dr Neal Sivula - Dancing Paws Animal Wellness Center
4646 W. Streetsboro Rd
Richfield, Ohio 44286
Things to consider: He does not have a reception staff, so if you make an appoinment by phone, you will need to leave a message and wait for a call back. He says he does this to help keep costs down - and so far he's been VERY reasonable on all the medicines Denali has needed.
