Our Second Family
Tara from Hamden

I came to Cheshire Animal Hospital about 3 years ago when my white boxer- "Rin" was having some kind of allergic reaction. Although difficult to pin down what Rin could have been allergic to (she is a white boxer...) Dr. Carron and Dr. Suhie were able to get the reaction under control. Rin has had several emergency visits since including renal failure last summer when she was 5 years old. Rin's kidney levels were so high that chances of survival were grim. No one ever gave up on her! Every staff member took a vested interest in Rin's care, from the round the clock vets and technicians to the front office staff. I received regular hugs from behind the counter as I was breaking down for fear of losing my "little love". Rin is now 7 years old and amazingly her kidney values are back to normal (for her)! I know that if it weren't for the exceptional staff (who are like family to us now) at VCA Cheshire Animal Hospital Rin would no longer be with us. I have the highest confidence in the staff at VCA Cheshire Animal Hospital. The level of professionalism, care and genuine concern for all their patients is unparalleled by any vet I've ever known.
