Fur Babies
Alanna and Jean from Bloomington

We've taken our cats and dogs to VCA since 1994, and will continue to bring our "fur babies" there even though we live in west Bloomington and there are two vet clinics just down the street. VCA feels like a small-town doctor's office, where we know many of the staff, and they've been with us for the life cycles of several pets. We have had everything from playful visits to bring new puppies to meet everyone in the office, all the way to assisting us through that painful "final visit", with the staff always providing sensitive and knowledgeable care at all points in between. One of our favorite pet stories comes from an early visit with our sturdy cat, Claire. We asked Dr. Ralph if we should be concerned about her weight, and he looked at us seriously and said, "Well, you're not going to race her, are you?" All the staff have good senses of perspective and humor, demonstrating at every visit how much they care for animals and the people who love them.
