Dr. Frucht Rules


Aretha & Nick like to say that our cat looks like a Williamsburg Hipster . The neon-pink certainly finished off the look. © Nina Buesing Corvallo

Our cat needed a minor procedure today. Dr. Frucht came by last week to check him out and today she came back with a nurse to do the procedure right on our kitchen counter. It wasn't fun for the cat, but it was much less stressful than going to the animal hospital.
My cats are in their very late teens and while still in good health, they are however seriously getting up there in age.
All three of them have already past the average life expectancy of a feline, but are fit and happy.
Dr. Frucht has been a Godsend. Not just because she comes to the house, but also because she respects the way we care for our animals. Our former vet after detecting a heart murmur wanted us to get all sorts of tests and echo cardiograms for our geriatric cats. Besides the high cost of these tests, we felt that was just not humane or reasonable to do these extensive diagnostics. So after much deliberation we switched vets and we are very happy and seemingly so are our cats. Dr. Frucht seems to have the true welfare of the animal at heart, exactly the kind of vet we had been looking for.
If you live in New York and want to reach Dr Avra Frucht, call 212.799.8869.
We think she is excellent.
