Our receptionists are the ambassadors of BRVC. They are the first to greet you and your pet as you walk through the door and the last to say goodbye as you leave. They are the custodians of the client experience; while our technicians are treating our pets, our receptionists are making sure you are taken care of. Our receptionists are responsible for so much - from insurance forms, messages to doctors and appointment requests to something as simple as making a cup of coffee and grabbing a box of tissues for those in need. This month we honor someone who, to many of our clients, represents the face and voice of BRVC – Cheri DesChamps. For over ten years she has greeted our clients and their pets with warmth, compassion, and humor. Read More

However, it’s important to know that all bones – cooked or raw, regardless of what type of animal it comes from – can present real dangers to your pet. Read More
