What our Clients Say About Us:
We had to put our cat Teddy to sleep on our last visit, which was painful and deeply emotional for us. Dr. Melanson in particular was able to communicate in her words and manner an appreciation of Ted and of the feelings about his death. The rest of the staff were kind as well and I couldn't have imagined how anyone could have done a more professional and compassionate job in such a trying time for us. What we liked most was not just that we received help and understanding at the death of our four-legged friend, but that he got such great care over the long run. We felt that the Staff really liked and appreciated Ted.
When our last old canine companion Herbie suddenly (but not unexpectedly) went into a state of ultimate crisis in the early winter, we knew that if we phoned Christine Pinello, who had cared for him and all our dogs for many years, she would know just what to do. It was a dreadful snowy, sleety day, we were unable to get Herbie into the car for what we knew would be his final journey, and we were quite distressed. But Dr. Christine and her tech assistant came out straight away, and they provided for our Herbie a dignified end, free of fear, and for us just the right measure of comfort and pastoral care. We now await a new dog to come into our lives, but we are certain that one of the first people he or she will meet will be Christine Pinello at River Road. We know will serve both our canine and human needs with that same special brand of calm and reassuring intelligence that we have valued so much over the years.
Harpo asked me to let you know that we think his episode with pancreatitis is just a blip and isn’t chronic. While you and others practically starved him with meager rations (according to him) he still thinks very highly of you- and hopes that he runs into you all. But OUTSIDE the clinic. His shaved belly and these temperatures don’t mix but the couch seems just fine for now!Gaal
Thank you Christine, for making my last goodbye to my sweet Booteous Maximous Van Hooch such a dignified and loving “gift to him”. As I suffer, he is free and no longer crippled. Thank you.Nancy
I just wanted to thank you so much for the care and kindness you have given my dogs. You are a doctor with a gentle, loving heart- enough mushiness, but your staff is WONDERFUL too!
