Wouldn’t take my pup anywhere else. Riverside treats its patients and their humans like family and there is never a doubt in my mind that my girl is getting the best care at the best price. Many times they have bent over backwards to accommodate my lab mix, Wilma and I know they will be there if we ever have an emergency. Love Riverside!!

The Vets and associated staff are awesome. They truly care about your pet and take time to follow up on the care they provided. Truly exceptional, professional service! Highly recommend! Thanks Riverside!

I lived in Rutland, VT for 4 years and the folks at Riverside took terrific care of my little puggle, Sunny. We’re back on Long Island, NY, and just did her yearly shots exam, blood, and stool; while she tolerated the staff here, I could tell she was a bit nervous and misses the good folk at Riverside. I miss you guys too!

I have been bringing my animals to Riverside since 2004 and I have never had a bad experience. Everyone is professional and courteous and takes the time to answer all of my questions. They have been quick to respond in emergencies, have accommodated us appropriately for sick visits, and have helped us maintain the health of our pets with friendly reminder cards in the mail when shots or annual exams come due. I believe that the many services they offer are priced fairly (such as healthcare, boarding, and grooming), and Dr. Gifford is amazing!!

Made a visit to have my BIG dog checked and ready for spring ticks and other updates. The staff was awesome and treated my dog so special! Great advice, lots of time taken, and not rushed at all. Friendly and welcoming making Izzy’s appointment so easy and comfortable!

I could not be happier with the care my 12-year-old dog receives here. Dr. Gifford is terrific and, while I have only seen her one time, Dr. Sullivan is also great. The same can be said for the office staff and techs. I would recommend them without hesitation either in Rutland or in Ludlow.

I love Riverside!! I’ve been bringing my cats there for about 8 years now and I’ve always been happy with the care they have received! From the front desk to the techs and the doctors I’ve always been comfortable and my animals have been treated with care and love. Dr. Gifford really knows her stuff and has always been right on in her diagnosis every time. I’ve also brought my bunny twice when he needed treatment for an eye infection. No one likes having a surprise vet bill but I can say I’m happy to pay for the excellent care my animals receive at Riverside!

Big thanks go to all of the staff, that helped save our pup Kaiser. Because of them, he is alive and able to be back home!
