Dr. Bender and his staff were exceptionally thorough in examining and diagnosing my twelve year old cat, Molly, who had developed a poison ivy like rash on her paws, ears, and nose and was extremely uncomfortable day and night until she visited the Grove Center Hospital and was diagnosed with an auto immune disease. She now receives medication to control her symptoms and is a happy kitty.

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.

We love Doctor Bender and would never go anywhere else!! His office staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and they make you feel like family. Doctor Bender is available for house calls and can be paged at literally any hour outside of office hours in an emergency. You get the feeling from him that he just really cares about his patients and their owners as well, and it is always reassuring to know that he is just as invested in getting to the bottom of our pet-issues as we are. I couldn't say enough wonderful things about Doctor Bender and his staff and felt obligated to note how happy we are with him as our veterinarian.



Thank goodness I found Dr. ...

Thank goodness I found Dr. Bender (through a friend). Here's why. Suddenly, my healthy cat took sick with multiple sickly behaviors. Over time, and with the help of Dr. Bender, my cat came through what had been a serious protracted illness.

The excellent medical veterinary services of Dr. Bender were accompanied by humane care and attention to my cat's needs and to my concerns. A few salient observations/items: the staff is genuinely warm and efficient too, Dr. Bender took care to minimize the stress to me and my cat, Dr. Bender makes himself available whether it's in the office, by house call, or as was the case several times here, through a phone call. Once, he returned a call at 1 AM Sunday morning when the cat was experiencing distress. I can't express how valuable it is to me in knowing that Dr. Bender is available in some fashion 24/7. Within my budget, the cost of care was very reasonable,

I trust Dr. Bender because the positive outcome(s) for my cat proved the medical/non-medical choices he had given to me were the right ones. Thankfully, he's both a good veterinarian and a good man.

I have been bringing my six pets to Doctor Bender for the past four years and I can't imagine ANYONE having anything bad to say about him or anyone at his practice! The staff is warm, friendly and knowledgeable....and we just LOVE them. Doctor Bender can be a little awkward with people, but it is because of him that two of my "tough" pets were diagnosed with things that no other vet had picked up! He is an excellent diagnostician. He never seems like a vet who is after your money, he just wants to help you take great care of your furry babies! He really cares about his patients, and he'll be our vet for life!
