Kudos to VCA Boston Road, Springfield MA
Eileen French from Springfield

I have been bringing my cats (all senior citizens) to VCA Boston Road for about 5 years now. With very very few exceptions, the staff (techs, reception, doctors) have been amazing. I have only dealt with one other practice where I have felt so comfortable and where I know my cats are treated with so much respect and compassion. The doctors explain everything to me in terms I can understand without sounding superior. The techs treat each cat like it was their own and the staff in the reception area have gone out of their way on numerous occasions to ensure I could pick up whatever medications/food necessary at the time. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
