  • Excellent care of our dog

    -Tom and Donna from East Longmeadow, MA
    Pet Name: Ike

    Dr. Welsh performed surgery to repair a ligament in the knee of our 6 year old Lab. We also had to bring him in to their Emergency Room for other unrelated problems where Dr. Skribiski also provided excellent care of our dog. The entire staff was professional, skilled and compassionate. We are very fortunate to have such a good Veterinary hospital so close to us. We highly recommend them.

  • very caring

    -Linda from Springfield, MA
    Pet Name: Teeana

    Pet Image I had to bring my cat Teeana in because she stopped eating and wasn't drinking much. Unfortunately, after some tests and x-rays the outcome was very grim and I ended up putting her down. :( The staff was very nice and caring regarding the situation and how upset I was. I would bring another animal to see them if necessary.
