What is a Hardware Cow? Cows do not chew their food in the same way as dogs, cats or humans. The unique anatomy of their mouth allows them to occasionally pick up foreign objects with their feedstuff.

What our Clients Say About Us:
Shadow is thriving thanks to you. You cried for her because she survived [the fire] despite being a walking skeleton. I attribute her toughness and contentedness- despite her thyroid problem- to your wise care and advice. You did blood work and IV treatment and loaded me up with food for her without charging me a dime. Your caring and generosity have touched me deeply not just now, but over the decades. What a wonderful vet- and friend!
Last weekend our dog Finn was injured quite badly. By the way, in almost 48 years of owning dogs, almost always two at a time, we have found that the emergency happens on a Sunday or, better yet, good and late on any night. Translation - it's always a dire emergency and the vet's office is always closed!Since moving to Norwich almost 18 years ago we have called Dr. Christine Pinello our vet and she's treated all of our dogs during that time, 6 dogs in all. She or another doctor on her staff at River Road are always, always, available at a call for help, at any hour of the day or night, 365 days a year. As a matter of fact, Dr. Pinello and I were chuckling on Sunday afternoon about all the times we've been together after hours with a ripped up dog.I'm sure there are other fine vets in the area, but we think she's the finest.
My family and I want to sincerely thank you for the wonderful and sensitive care you provided to our Golden Retriever, Hank, during these difficult days. From the acute management of his illness, to your compassionate end of life care, your office was superb, and we are deeply grateful.Larry and Nora
