The Best of the Best
Palmer and crew go the extra mile to make sure our two dogs are in great hands when we travel. Every time I show up with our mutts to drop them off for boarding I get sad (we travel alot) but both dogs start wagging their tails like crazy and pull me in the direction of the kennels. Nothing could give off a better vibe than my dogs looking forward to getting back in there kennels and this allows us serious peace of mind when we are on the road.

I cannot say enough good things about Palmer and the staff. The Vets are all top notch and helped me during a horrible time when I had to put my first dog down.

If you want top notch care for your pets in all aspects, annuals, surgery, boarding, etc. then Cheshire Bridge Animal Clinic is a perfect fit for you and your animals. I'd give them 10 stars if possible. I've been a loyal customer for 10 years and can't imagine taking my mutts anywhere else. Kevin Fix

BIGGEST MISTAKE GOING HERE
I brought my dog in for a check up because I sensed something was wrong, but they didn't find anything wrong with him. I brought him in again and they found a serious illness. They wanted to run some tests and said they would update me next week being that this week fell on a holiday. At first, I didn't think much of it, but looking back, why in the world was I waiting 5 days to wait on some results that I needed to save or take care of my dog? I had to rush him to the GVS emergency hospital on Thanksgiving. I had to overnight him with IV fluids and etc. Had I waited until the following week for results, something could have happened. Too add to my frustration, I received no phone call or update on the tests ran. The staff here really missed the ball here. I honestly regret ever going here. They should have handled the situation differently. I will say they are pricey, compared to other clinics. Please do me a favor, research other clinics on here that have 70+ reviews and 6 star ratings. They are worth the drive.

Dear cvt_30319: I wanted the oppurtunity to respond to your difficult situation. I have reviewed my associate's notes from your visits and feel I need to defend their assessment and actions. Upon a complete physical exam on the first visit, your pet had no signs of illness whatsoever. Hydration, lymph nodes, complete palpation...all normal. No reported vomiting or diarrhea, no lameness, no known trauma...just a gut feeling on your part. They advised close monitoring with the recommendation to return for a follow-up visit and labwork if the situation continued. The following week on the day before the thanksgiving holiday, a follow-up visit again revealed a normal physical exam with the one exception of an elevated temperature. They ran labs and dispensed an antibiotic in case there was an unknown bacterial infection. The doctor instructed that they would not be in until Monday to review the labs, but to come by and pick up the results from the boarding staff if his condition declined further and needed to be seen over the holiday. Incidentally, the labs came back normal and a message was left on voicemail reporting that on Monday. Since then, your pet has been seen by a specialist and another general veterinarian with no diagnosis other than a fever of unknown origin and recently developing vomiting and diarrhea. We strive to do the best for all pets seen here at our clinc and although I understand your frustration, I feel your review was unjust. I am very sorry that your pet is not yet well and I do wish you and your pet the best.

Vet was no help, must have been a busy day.
If your pet has a serious illness, I'd suggest taking them to a pet hospital.
I brought in two sick 5 week old puppies, who kept having diarrhea, vomiting, were lethargic, and dehydrated and were kind of "giving up." They were always pretty much active and I was always on top of feeding them formula/mush, and they just got like this one day, despite them being well taken care of. It's the strangest thing, one minute they are crawling everywhere, the next their eyes are closing and become very ill. On my visit, the doctor didn't really run a series of tests to see what might be wrong, just put IV fluid on one of them and tried to see if it would eat I went home, and puppy #1 died within 12 hours after the visit. The second puppy just died 3 hours ago. After deep research based on the symptoms these puppies had, they definitely developed parvovirus. I kept asking the doctor if there's a better way to keep the puppies hydrated, and he said no, and that puppies sometimes just "give up" as if there's no logical explanation. Honestly, I think this has been the strangest experience, even at a vets office. Animals don't just stop eating for no reason. Puppies with parvovirus usually don't die from parvo, but die from dehydration. Every half hour the the formula/water would just disappear from their tummies when tube fed to them. They would either vomit it, or diarrhea. So there's no winning unless I had an IV fluid kit and antibiotics....

I agree - The Best of The Best!
I have been taking my dogs here since they were both two months old - I have to say, I was sad when they were out of the twice-monthly puppy shot stage because I missed seeing everyone at the clinic. They are so much fun to be around, yet very professional, knowledgeable and clearly love animals. Just love them!!!

great boarding for cats
I was so worried about leaving my baby to go on vacation.until i visited Cheshire Animal Clinic and Hotel! I've only had him 4 months, but we are totally co-dependent. He needs lots of attention and is an escape artist, so I didn't want to leave him at home with a once-a-day sitter for fear he'd get out. Other vet's boarding areas were sad and scary, but this was just perfect! Separate from dogs and from the clinic, 6 foot cages with 3 levels for them to run and play. The staff was super nice and friendly, they let me bring way too many toys and treats and helped me set up his space. The man who brought him out to me said he let him out to play everyday and he ran all around the room and took a liking to a younger kitten who was also there. This is exactly what I wanted, some extra love and attention in a laid back environment from people who truly love animals. I'm going to start bringing him there for his shots and check-ups, too. *thank you*...
