Deb Batsie Our first encounter at MVC occurred after we took in a rescue who had been under the care of MVC. Within six months of bringing her into our home, we found out she had cancer and had to put her down. Anyone who has had to make this decision knows how earthshattering it is. Dr. Atz made the situation tolerable. He became a part of the decision making process; not making us feel we had to decide alone. He was there the entire time and you could actually feel his compassion fill the room...that was over eight years ago and now all our fur children go to MVC. Everytime we go there, everyone knows who we are.... And more importantly who are fur babies are without reading a chart. A couple of years ago....after our kitty had emergency surgery... Dr. B came in on a Sunday to discharge her home to us bc she knew how much we missed her. This weekend our other cat became suddenly very sick. Dr. Soutter and Amber stayed late on a Saturday to see us. Some places might have insisted we go to an emergency vet but not here. Dr. Soutter was able to identify what was wrong w him before the test results came back by her keen observation. We know she saved his life this weekend. After following her recommendations, FB looks like a new man again. Dr. Atz, Dr. B. And Dr. Soutter are brilliant, compassionate and highly trustworthy vetinarians. They call when they say they will.... And are always patient when I come in with my list of questions. Our dog is a rescue who does not trust new folks. He has never had a single issue at this vet. No issue is insignificant to them....if I am worried so are they. We are incredibly grateful to all the staff at MVC for their sincerity and care... And would whole heartedly recommend them!

this is just about the best vets office i have ever been to. they were very understanding about my concerns with my cat hanna and actually listened when i had questions. and always had some sort of feedback. and made sure to explain everything so i could understand what was going on with my kitty. Dr. Babuska was awesome. and when we had to bring our baby girl kitty back to help her along they gave us all the time we needed to say our goodbyes. even after it was all done they let us sit with her as long as we needed. the yare so caring and understanding. they are very honest. after we had our kitty put to sleep (she was in the final stages of FeLV) we got a letter in mail from a collage saying they(MVC) made a monetary tribute on behalf of our fur baby to a feline health center. I was crying because i was so happy and thankful. it really meant alot to me that they did that. it really shows they have full hearts. i would refer anyone to go to this office. they care about you and your pet. and whats best to help your pet out. if your looking for a vets office that actually CARES about helping animals and not about how much money you can dish out i suggest to come here. you wont be dissapointed and neither will your pets
Terrible experience Very unhappy with the vet my elder mother was scheduled to see. Not only was the older female vet telling my mother her dog needed a dentistry cleaning but she was saying it was going to be a range of 500-1000 dollars thats a huge diffrence. She was very rude to me and treated me like an idiot ive had dogs over 20 yrs . My mothers dog needed a dentistry cleaning and I asked for an estimant, Just a few questions and moments of her time was too much for her to handle. she was behind and rushing through the appointment .Our dog is 12 yrs old and our baby. And ive also gotten estimants from other vets in the area. They were hesitant to even put my moms dog under general ansthesia let alone spend hrs trying to clean his teeth. Because of her we will never go back and she was unaware i was trying to find a new vet in the area for all of my friends as well they lost not just one person but over 5 potential pets. She is very unprofessional and i would advice anyone who is in need of a dental cleaning for there pet not to go there. they shouldnt be doing them if it takes them that long. My 4 pets currently go to a wonderful vet in galstonbury and im very happy. :)

We moved to CT from the Boston area in 2006 and struggled to find quality vet care that offer both traditional medicine and homeopathy. We were very fortunate to have found Dr. Alexis Soutter through a friend of ours and we have stuck with MVC ever since. Dr Soutter has provide countless hours of care to our animal companions and consultation with us on various issues pertaining to our furry family. We have also seen many of the other vets; all were exceptional and caring in their efforts to address any issue at hand. We bring all 3 of our rescue dogs to MVC and all our rescue cats, as well as any fosters we may have. The vets are not the only great ones at MVC, the vet techs and office staff are helpful,compassionate, and are giving of their time. Thank you MVC staff for all you do for our animal friends. We highly recommend MVC for your animal companion needs. ~ The Fleck -Mugavero Family
Theyre awesome. Theyre not like other vets weve been to. Each doctor is kind and caring and very well trained. I find their clinical skills to be excellent, and the front office staff is delightful. Vet care is, as we all know, very expensive. I started searching for a different kind of vet 2 years ago when I was tired of not receiving adequate options for situations we couldnt afford - I understand that many treatments are "best", but at these medical prices we cant always do the ideal. I wanted the information I needed to pick and choose which interventions and treatments were critical and which I could responsibly skip and monitor conditions instead. I LOVE MANCHESTER VET! I would do anything my animals need, but I cant run out of money either. They give me the information I need to make responsible, healthy, educated decisions about my pets healthcare.
We brought our rescue here for her first visit. As soon as you walk through the door, you are greeted in a friendly, professional manner. The office is very clean, has no odor, and is bright & cheerful! The exam room was bigger then I expected, and gave room for 4 people plus a medium dog. The Vet. Assistant & Vet were very friendly, kind, fun, professional people. They took the time to explain everything, gave plenty of time to ask questions, and we didnt feel rushed at all! Their prices are very reasonable! WE are very happy with this clinic, and very happy for the choice we made!
My family and I have been using Manchester Veterinary Clinic for nearly 20 years. During that time they have treated our 6 (not at the same time!) dogs and 2 cats. They have helped us through the difficult diagnoses; Cushing’s Disease, Hip dysplasia, Diabetes and Cancer, and ultimately through the loss of many of our beloved pets. Our current 2 dogs have reached their senior years and these vets and their wonderful team have been there every step of the way. Looking forward to many more years with the best vets ever!!! Love you guys!
