I have been bringing my pets to Berkshire Veterinary Hospital for many years. One in particular had a very rare condition that would have ended her life early and might have escaped detection had it not been for the vigilance of her doctor.
From those working in the reception area to each and every vet there I have nothing but the highest regard. Each and every visit, for whatever reason, with whichever animal was managed thoroughly, caringly & professionally.
Through the care provided to keep my pets well, to the care they needed when they were not,we received received focused and clear information about their condition and what all our options were in their treatment. Sometimes I pushed the envelope, wanting & needing to do everything possible. But when it was time to let go, we were given every consideration when bringing in a dear one for the last time.
As a nurse I have often reflected upon the need for similar caring and concern from physicians caring for us humans. And sure the cost of veterinary care is not cheap. However, consider this. All of the training, time, technology & much of the medicine involved in veterinary care is identical to that used in our care. Yet it is a fraction of the cost of human medical care which sadly is often delivered with far less of the compassion I have come to expect at Berkshire Veterinary Hospital.
