Veterinarian in the Kissamos/Kastelli area?

Postby Kyrstyn » Sat May 09, 2009 1:03 am

Hi, wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a veterinarian either in Kissamos, or nearby. I don't need one yet (won't arrive w/ my kitties until June 1) but would like to have the info on file. Hoping I won't need one, but my oldest is 17 and who knows how she's going to handle the trip over.

Thanks!

Kyrstyn,

The only one I know of at this end of Crete is Stavros, who has a surgery near the Technical College on the Akrotiri penisular.

He speaks goo English and is very helpful.

You can contact him on 28210-69966

Hi Krystyn,

DP here, we communicated before about the house in Drapanias. We can highly highly recommend a vet near the harbour in Souda bay. His name is Giorgos Vizyrakis. He is opposite the Marinopolous supermarket in Souda. His phone number is 28210 23505 or mobile 6972569956. He is brilliant!

Hi DP! Thanks for the recommendation...I feel much more comfortable knowing I've got so many options.

Vet in Kissamos

There is a vet in Kissamos, one block before the OTE shop, open every morning. Her name is Christina Fandridi and her telephone number is 28220 24119. She deals with agricultural animlas and domestic pets. If anything serious occurs, she will recommend vets in Chania.

I have to go with george in Souda, what a nice guy, and his assistant yanni. Both speak excellent English, and nothing is too much trouble.

DP and Pinch - thanks so much for the recommendation on Giorgos in Souda. Today I took one of the homeless neighborhood kitties to have her spayed, and you're right - Giorgos and Yannis are both wonderful, the facility is excellent, and I feel really comfortable knowing that they're there. The kitty I took in is already pregnant, so there are risks involved in spaying her at this point, but I feel confident that if anyone can do it, Giorgos can. What a great disposition...

Thanks again!

Ours was also pregnant when spayed - although we didn't know until the vet told us afterwards. We won't be bringing our cats to Crete. They'll be happy here with our son. I think it would be cruel to fly them so far. Heck, they can barely tolerate the annual 3-mile car ride trip to the vets.

Kyrstyn, I don't want to be judgmental but it appears that you are endangering the cat's life.
If she is a "house" cat then why spay her before she has given birth. If she is feral than why spay her at all?
Unless he is a changed man the last thing your Vet would advise is taking away this cat's purpose in life and at the same time alienating her in the eyes of her peers (assuming she is feral).

LFB have you seen how many stray (feral and house that have been abandoned) cats and dogs there are in Crete?

Yes, but I personally don't think that human beings are in a position to play "God".
I'm in favour of helping an animal out, but not in interfering in it's life to make myself feel better - certainly not if it endangers the animal's life.
