  • We really Appreciate Dr. Phillips

    -Rob Surico from Schenectady, NY/NYC, NY

    My wife and I began using All Caring approximately 15 years ago to provide high quality veterinary care for our dachshund, Stretch. We chose All Caring because of its reputation and holistic focus. We were given Stretch by my brother who was terminally ill and could no longer care for him. Stretch had always hated going to the vet and would shake and cry. That was until he met the folks at All Caring and specifically, Dr. Phillips. Stretch loved her and his periodic visits. Dr. Phillips was his Vet until the end of his long life and we greatly appreciated the care she gave him. Dr. Phillips also cared for our Corgi, Corky, for his short life and provided excellent care to him as well. Now we have a new Dachshund, named Toby. He is a rescue from Springfield, MA and we immediately decided that Dr. Phillips and the All Caring team would provide his veterinary care. We feel it is well worth the long drive from New York for such high quality care.

  • The whole team CARES.

    -Carrie, Bob, and King from Warwick, RI
    Pet Name: King

    Pet Image Dr. Phillips is one of the most amazing vets we have ever seen. My dog is chronically ill and we have been everywhere looking for answers. We have even been to specialists with him. Dr Phillips actually did better than the specialist. She told us the same things they did but then took it a few steps further. She did it! She diagnosed him and gave him a great care plan. She has also taken time and explained everything which was really appreciated, both his condition and possible medications and procedures. She covered all my dogs conditions and really put it in great perspective on what to do. I can't; "THANK HER ENOUGH!" So if you are out there and are searching for an intelligent vet who sincerely cares and works hard to make it better.

    She is the one!!!

  • Wonderful team

    -Dr. Mady HC from New York, NY
    Pet Name: Fiona - formerly Flip

    I have known Dr. Phillips and the techs since the summer of 2007. I was so impressed by the time and effort that went into each and every appointment. They truly think outside of the box. This is honestly one of the best groups I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The utmost of caring and compassion!

    Take your pets here!

  • So grateful

    -Elisabeth Weiss from New York, NY
    Pet Name: Cosi and Petzi

    Pet Image Visits to Dr Phillips have made a huge difference in my dogs' lives. I have hardly ever experienced such caring attention. I do not feel rushed, there aren't a million phone calls that are answered during our appointments, we get results back quickly and my dogs are not stressed out.
    We were able to do x-rays without sedation! I love the holistic attitude and I feel I am offering my dogs the best by taking them to see Dr. Phillips.
    As a professional dog trainer I am particularly conscious of stress avoidance. My usually reactive dog pranced into the building today and performed her favorite tricks for Dr. Phillips. What more could anybody ask for? Thank you.


    -Karen Kulakowski, RD from Springfield, MA
    Pet Name: Mikey and Jolie

    Pet Image I have been bringing my dogs, Mikey and Jolie, to All Caring since 2002. I was looking for a more holistic approach to care for my Bichon Frise, Jolie, who had just turned 10 yrs old. What we found was Jolie responded BETTER to the holistic remedies than conventional medicine. As she aged Jolie developed liver problems, severe arthritis and lymphoma. Dr. Barbara (Philips) made us feel she was caring for her own dog. And Jolie loved her! Working with Dawn the animal communicator also made us feel we were always thinking of what Jole wants instead of our agenda. The techs also made us feel that everything was being done according to our wishes. We love EVERYONE All Caring and actively tell friends of the loving care provided at All Caring. I would drive anywhere for great care for my dogs, and an hour and a half is well worth the drive for 5-STAR care! By the way, we had to put Jolie down in January. It was very difficult, but with Dr. Barbara, the techs and Dawn, the animal communicator we felt reassured that we were doing the right thing. We absolutely love All Caring! Thank you for your caring, compassion and friendship.

  • Great Place for Vet Care

    -Doug and Jamie Shohan from Lee, MA

    We have been bringing our pets to All Caring since 2001 and have been very pleased. All of the staff is friendly and courteous. Always. The people that work at All Caring really do care about the pets they treat. There is a certain trust that has been built since 2001 that can't be replicated at any other veterinary clinic.
