So Briar Patch Veterinary Hospital did something special. When My husband went to pick up Echo’s (my cat) remains (we had him cremated), they gave us a paw print of my little baby’s paw. OMG! We were not expecting it. I can’t say enough nice things about this place! The staff was exceptional! Thumbs up to the vets -Dr Vissio and Dr Rhinehart; they were kind, understanding and compassionate. Everyone should give them a try, if you have a pet of course :) This poem was included in the package: “Farewell, Master, yet not farewe... read more

As a vet student, I am very selective about where I take my cat. I chose briar patch because they are AAHA accredited and a certified cat friendly practice. My feisty kitty was very relaxed at his appointment and the staff and doctors are very thorough. I have recommended this clinic to my peers at Cornell.

My Multipoo needed a tooth pulled and Dr. Rhinehart examined her and said she'd clean her teeth and see how things looked. She sent me a video of what was going to happen which was very helpful and reassuring. Delilah did great. Dr. Rhinehart removed an infected tooth and cleaned her teeth. I can't imagine how painful her little tooth must have been! I'm grateful they discovered it and took such good care of her. Thank you Briarpatch!
