Dr. Bender should not be practicing on cats at all. He is way to rough with them and seems to be under the impression that he and only he, knows how to raise a cat. I would not recommend him for anyone who cares about their feline friends.

Our cats have been patients with Dr. Bender for over 15 years now and I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Bender and his staff. I know that it is a small clinic, but Dr. Bender has always been there, returns phone calls quickly, makes house calls, and truly cares about the animals. I highly recommend Grove Center.

Dr. Bender has been our vet for over 12 years, and has done a fantastic job. He and his staff are very caring and good with animals. Over the years he has treated 5 animals for us - 4 cats and a dog for everything from the routine to emergency. We initially sought him out after hearing he makes house calls, and have stayed with him ever since.

this practice is the equivalent of the old general practitioner who makes house calls.
i first brought my 15 year old dog to dr. bender because he was bleeding badly and i was afraid to make the longer trip to my regular vet.
the doctor saw him immediately, was unbelievably kind and gentle to both of us and called the next day to make sure that max was doing well.
he and his staff are caring, compassionate, and guess what?!?!?
he returns phone calls promptly.
a teriffic find!!!!

Someone else reviewed this animal hospital and gave it a poor rating, but I've had a very good experience. My cat does not like going to the vet, so the first good thing was that the veterinarian does home visits. He was able to handle my cat (who is *mean* to vets), and do it safely. The vet actually had special equipment, like a body bag which held the cat safely while keeping her claws from tearing everyone up. There is only one vet here, and a small staff, so if you leave the cat at the clinic overnight (I did need to take her in at one point when she was sick), no one is watching the animal, and that's a downside. But I think this guy (his name is Dr. Bender, I think!?) is excellent in dealing with mean animals. (My cat loves me, just gets semi-feral with people who want to put needles in her.) I also think he really knows his business from a technical side. I think this is a great clinic, especially if you have a cat or dog who does not like vets.

PROS: Very good with "problem" animals, does home visits
CONS: Only one vet, small staff

I took my dog ince for some minor care and everything was okay, but for some reason I just didn't feel very comfortable with this particular clinic. I only saw one vet treating many pets and for some reason that didn't sit very well with me. That also increases the amount of time that we spent at the clinic. And he was definately not as good with the pets as I have seen other vets. He also spoke to us with a demeaning tone, as if I didn't know how to care for my pet. I didn't really appreciate it, and so i won't take my dog back there.
