Thanksgiving
Andria from formerly Northampton

Dr. Benner at the VCA South Hadley was my vet for the whole time I've lived in Massachusetts. He is very knowledgeable about birds and is the only Avian Certified vet in the Pioneer Valley. His staff are wonderful people and even the vet techs who don't know much about birds want to learn and do so quickly. I am writing this review today in particular though, because it is the one-year anniversary from when Dr. Benner saved the life of my bird by being open at 7:30pm on the night before Thanksgiving. Based on the symptoms I described alone, he immediately diagnosed her illness as being a bacterial infection and gave us antibiotics. A culture and sensitivity confirmed this, and the specific species of bacteria showed that it was caused by mice invading our house! My bird Kappa responded quickly to the antibiotics, and I responded quickly by T&R-ing the mice.

Thank you Dr. Benner and all the VCA S Hadley staff for being open late the night before Thanksgiving last year (2011), for giving us such wonderful care and service through the years I lived in MA, and for probably saving Kappa's life.
