Welcome to our new website!

How excited we are to have this bright, new way of sharing with you. We have worked hard the last few months writing, photographing, organizing, rewriting. We hope you will find our site easy-to-navigate, full of information, and even entertaining at times.

With Riverbend now in its 13th year, we continue to be proud of what we are doing here. We’ve grown from a small operation (with one doctor, me) to our current staff of 15 (with four doctors). The hospital itself has expanded in size and in hours. And now we have this beautiful new website. With all the growth and change, however, we remain fully committed to our mission . . . to provide the highest quality medical and surgical care in a warm, comfortable, compassionate setting.

So keep us on our toes. Let us know if we let you down in any way . . . that’s how we can get better. And of course, you can also let us know if we do something grand . . . that makes us happy and encourages us to keep striving.

“Over and over again you have been available to us when our furry family members have had serious problems. It is always easier dealing with those tough times because of your love, caring, and compassionate ways.”

Ann and Peter, Longmeadow

“We’ve been bringing our Great Pyrenees to Riverbend since he was 8 wks old. Doctors, staff, reception … all professional, caring, and a wealth of knowledge and experience! Thanks everybody!”

Dave and Deb, Belchertown

“I want you to know how much I appreciated everything you did for Scooter. You gave him a better quality of life for his last 2 years and I will be forever grateful.”

Cynthia, Longmeadow

“You can tell they love animals and this isn’t just a job. They care about the pets and the owners, and it shows through their work. I got many calls from Dr. White to check up on my sick kitty and see how we were all doing.”

Christine, Hadley

“Thank you all so much for allowing us to have our second Christmas with our little fat head, Pickles. You guys are just amazing.”

James and Megan, Easthampton
