The first time I took one of my kitties to Cat Specialist it was because I had read about their radio-iodine treatment for hyperthyroidism in the paper. I had a cat that had been diagnosed by another vet has having hyperthyroidism. She was about 7 years old and was losing weight rapidly and was not responding at all to the medication. I took her to Dr. Olson and within a week she was gaining weight and lived to the old age of 18!! I have taken all my kitties to Dr. Olson since then and would never take any of my cats anywhere else. I had two Maine Coon cats that both had congenital heart issues. He worked with their prescriptions until he came up with a combination that halted further deterioration. Dr. Olson and his staff LOVE cats and will take the time to talk to you about concerns or just to talk about cats in general. My cats are very calm when they are there and I never feel they are stressed out. An added bonus are the very cool and beautiful office cats that hang out at the front desk.
If you are lucky enough to live within driving distance of Cat Specialist, take your cats there!!
GOOD VET, GOOD STAFF, GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR, KIND AND EASY TO GET A HOLD OF! PRICES REASONABLE FOR HIGH QUALITY CARE.
Simply put - I have always received professional and compassionate care for my cats here. I would recommend them to everyone :) Also, it's nice to be able to pick-up and drop-off for boarding on Saturdays!
Dr. Olson has taken care of my cats for over a decade. Examples of the excellent care he has always provided are too numerous to list in their entirety. With various cats, we have been through heart problems, kidney failure, liver disease, cancer and a host of less serious illnesses. Dr. Olson's diagnostic skills are top-notch. He combines the art and science of veterinary medicine using the latest technology, keen observation, careful history taking, methodical exploration of possibilities and plain common sense. One of my cats lived to be 21 years old and another to 19. Both enjoyed additional quality years because of Dr. Olson's diagnostic and treatment skills. Plus, he truly loves cats and it shows. From Dr. Olson's unassuming manner, you would never suspect that he is a nationally renowned feline specialist and has written publications and book chapters. He has a great "bedside manner" and like to teach cat owners how to manage their cats' illness at home. When one of my older cats died in her sleep and again when another had to be euthanized, Dr. Olson and his staff were wonderful. I could not have asked for more caring, compassionate and understanding people. The staff is helpful, returns calls promptly, issues reminders, and follows through with whatever is requested of them. I recommend Cat Specialist without reservation.
My kitty got sick (read: profuse vomiting) while our regular vet was out of town, so we were in a hurry to have her seen. We got an appointment the same day and I was impressed with the place - enough to write a review at least. While it may not be the cheapest vet, I felt there was value in the service. It seemed like Dr. Olson did reasonable but not excessive tests (I was worried about that from a specialist). He personally called the next day to report results and shared all of the records with our regular vet. Pleasant experience and my kitty is better now!
I just had to move away from Colorado, and sadly that meant leaving Dr. Olson and the wonderful staff at Cat Specialist. They have taken care of our kitty Pico since he was a kitten. He had a few injuries and illnesses over the years and I have always been able to get an appointment promptly, the staff is warm and caring, and Dr. Olson never makes us feel rushed. When Pico had an ultrasound - we got to see the photos! Basically, if you are lucky enough to be within driving distance of this place, take your four-legged family member there . . . you won't regret it!
