Valery Strobel from Bloomington

I have been a client of VCA in Richfield Minnesota for almost 8 years. I truly can't say enough of the staff. They helped me through many rough times with my first dog "Jake" which he is in doggy heaven now that bladder cancer finally took over his life in 2005. I also have a cat, "Patches" that has had many behavior issues. This past year I finally got another beagle, "Buster" who I came to find out has some heart problems. The vet I work with is Dr. Josephs and my goodness in my world she is a blessing! She always has talked me through things, always returned my calls, took the time to listen to everything I had to say, even when some things weren't related directly to my pets, I don't feel you could ask for any better. I also work with Dr. Ralph now that my puppy has a heart condition and he's had a few echocardiograms taken of his heart and Dr. Ralph not knowing me as well as the others has calmed my anxiety with talking me through things step by step and giving the reassurance that I need. All the staff is very knowledgeable, but if they aren't sure of something they will find the answer for you. They are a very dedicated team and from what I've seen they all work very well together. I haven't seen any new faces for a very long time so I feel like it was there calling to do this work at least that's what I can say every time I walk in there door or make that call to them. God bless them all for always taking care not only my pets but me as well!
