Dr. Mac and staff go above and beyond
Linda and Garnet from South Windsor

We have been taking our cats to VCA since around 1997/98. We can tell you they have all received the ultimate care you would expect for your beloved friend. I can also say that we have been incredibly impressed with Dr. Mac (McAleer). He is incredibly patient and has an awesome rapport with our pets. We have recently experienced the incredible pain and sorrow that comes with the loss of our beloved Ginger. Harder still was having to face the most difficult decision a pet owner has with their pet - the selfless act of letting go when their health and quality of Life has diminished forcing you to make the decision to end their suffering. We were treated with such incredible empathy and care, not to mention the care with how Dr. Mac made it so peaceful for Ginger. We can't THANK YOU all enough. Linda
