I live in Northern Illinois near the Iowa border and I need to find a vet who actually know Sphynx cats... anyone live in my neck of the woods who can point me in the right direction.
If it helps I live in the Whiteside/Carroll County area in Illinois.

Asap. THANKS

Cate and Dobs.

Hopeful members will chime in with recommendations

I live in a small town and found s great vet though not Sphynx specific but does consult with colleagues further away if we have any issues

You could try a search of a vet university hospital in your state. Ask them if they have any network info for a vet familiar with Sphynx

All paws crossed you get a recommendation soon

Thank you. Hes is at my local vet for now but they told me they have never really worked with the breed before and it just scares me that I dont know everything to watch for when it comes to him. I thought I was ready to take on the breed and now I feel a little lost about it all. I love my little man with all my heart and I just dont want anything to happen at the hands of an uneducated vet.

@DobsMom13046 hugs for you. You sure are more then ready for your little man. I still remember how lost I felt when my boys arrived 4 years ago. I worried all day and was constantly afraid I would do something wrong.

If there's no vet with sphynx eperience, the local vet will be good too. Your vet is honest about him/her not having experience with a vet. To me that says the vet is taking his/her job seriously. Most things are the same for a sohynx as for other cats. Other things are a bit diffetent. But if your vet is willimg to learn, your Dobby will be in great hands with the vet.
He sure is in great hands with you
