Four generations of our family have been clients at the Riverview Animal Hospital for over 40 years. We have always received great care and been treated like family. Until.... <br> <br>The clinic was sold last year. On two occasions, in the midst of one of our pets passing, we were told "sorry we cannot see you today"! <br> <br>It happened again today- my elderly mother called the clinic to take in her elderly dog as he was having trouble breathing- my mother was in tears. The clinic told my mother "sorry- can't see you today"- although it was 8:00 AM and they were open until noon. They told her to take him to the animal ER- too busy! <br> <br>I called Bloomingdale Animal Hospital and explained what was happening. They never hesitated- immediately saying bring him right in. Thankfully he only has a bad cold and respiratory infection. They treated my mother with kindness and cared for her and her dog. <br>We will now be taking our pets to Bloomindgale Anaimal Hospital! <br> <br>Very sad to see a community vet clinic who has always been a caring part of the RIverview community, an icy, corporate , non-caring medical facility!
