I've brought my various cats and dog to Dr. Bender for the past 15 years because I trust their care to him. One of my cats is diabetic and Dr. Bender was very thorough in diagnosing and treating Seeley. He took a lot of time explaining diabetic care to me . . . and Seeley has a lot of special needs. Dr. Bender promptly returns call and doesn't seem too busy to explain labs results or answer questions. He is very knowledgable and really cares about the pets in his care. Since I have two special needs cats I am in frequent contact with Grove Center Veterinary Hospital and make frequent visits to the office. Dr. Bender and his staff feel like family. Much of my regular contact is with Kierstin and Mandi . . . and they are so helpful, cheerful, and friendly. All this and Dr. Bender does house calls too! How cool is that? I know my skittish cats thank him for the home visits - they hate that cat carrier. Finally, I think Dr. Bender's charge/fees are quite reasonable and affordable. So I recommend Grove Center Veterinary Hospital (Dr. Bender) for anyone's beloved pet.
