VC is a full hour drive from my home in Brooklyn but we switched to CVC because the care our dogs get here is above and beyond...the perfect combination of compassion and science. We have older dogs with special needs and they are treated like superstars from the moment we walk in...it starts with the bright, happy staff at the desk! I especially love CVC for pugs, bostons and the breeds that need incredible care and caution when going under for any procedure. We love CVC!
Dr. Solomon has always gone above & beyond for all of the unique and never ending needs of our rescues. Curly Tail Pug Rescue uses CVC for all of our needy medical dogs without hesitation.Dr. Cavanaugh, Dr. Greene, & Dr. Leonard are always more than available and go beyond the call of duty for our dogs. we simply could not be the rescue that we are without them. The staff non-medical is stellar as well. everyone is so helpful & patient with our never ending needs. the love & TLC our rescues get is beyond anything we could have hope for. we are truly blessed to be able to work with all of the staff at CVC on a regular basis.-
