A couple of years back our main vet retired and sold to some doctors who i feel are less than caring about their patients and are strickly in business to make money. This forced us to look farther away from home for a doctor who cares. If there was an emergency(like one of my critter kids gets hit in the road) then i would still go to the nearest pet hospital(which is only 10 minutes from our home), but for general care we now drive 30 minutes to another county to see Dr Bannister of the Bennington Veternary Clinic. Not only are he and his staff exceptional people, but recently they went above the call of duty for us. The first of the month we had to have our eldest cat put to sleep due to old age and kidney deteriation. Dr Bannister was very sympathetic and only charged for the cost of the injection. What really impressed me was the note i received the other day from the Purdue University stating that Dr Bannister made a donation to them in the name of our cat so that further studies of animals may contiune. All i can say is that i wish all vets were like him and may god bless him, his staff, and his family.
