When my previous vet retired, I a friend recommended Dr. Shemer. I used to travel to North Windham Vet to bring my dogs to him and couldn't have been happier when he came to Tolland Veterinary Hospital! I highly recommend him if you want a vet that will take great care of your pet whether it's surgery or daily care.
Everyone was amazing and kind. The techs, the people on the phone and the vet herself were all so wonderful and helpful. I have a german shepherd mix that has had an awful experience with a previous vet and he gets nervous. They kept his anxiety (and my anxiety) calm. The prices are fair and they were on time.
Was recommended to this vet for my ferret and was no disappointed! Dr. Shemer is very knowledgeable with ferrets and talked me through all the options for my ferrets care. Was very polite and nice to talk to! Would highly recommend them also!
