Dr. Dendtler and her impeccable staff saved our dogs life. This is an incredible and moving story of what separates an experienced, attentive healer from any well-trained clinician, so well start from the beginning. We moved away from NYC two years ago, but continue to return to Dr. D for routine care for our aging, but healthy and happy family dog, Toots. When Toots had a rapid-onset loss of appetite and lethargy, we took her to a local vet, and then on to an Emergency and Speciality care facility. She was admitted with a fever over 105, high enough to put her at risk for severe blood clotting and organ failure. We could not identify any toxin she may have ingested, and started on intravenous fluids and antibiotics to try and bring the fever down, in addition to a spattering of diagnostics. Of course we reached out to Dr. Dendtler, who was immediately all-in via frequent phone consultations, confering with the emergency vets, and patiently explaining Toots condition to us in terms we could actually understand. After almost 3 days of intravenous medication, her fever was not coming down, and we were caught between pressure from the local emergency vets to perform invasive tests, and frustration that Toots continued to suffer a dangerous fever. Dr. Dendtler literally pleaded with these vets to exhaust all therapies to bring down the fever and get some food in her, like cold compresses and gentle oral feeding through a syringe. These were no doubt well-trained clinicians with access to the most modern diagnostics and cancer treatments, but their solution for a high fever was to aim a fan at our sick dog. We wanted Toots out of there, and Dr. Dendtler told us that shell be with us all the way while we nursed Toots at home with non-invasive therapies the emergency vets assured us wouldnt amount to a hill of beans. Well, Dr. Dendtler was true to her word, and coached us through tepid baths every 2 hours, special high-calorie milkshakes, temperature monitoring, in addition to ol fashioned tender loving care, and Toots fever fell to normal after 3 days of being home. It was a moving experience for my partner and I to nurse our helpless, sick, sweet dog back to health and vitality. Dr. Dendtler continues to check-in with us every week -- like she said in the beginning, shes with us for the long haul. A caring and thoughtful doctor is truly a healer, and we are so grateful to Dr. D and her supportive staff. Her approach to medicine is both patient and decisive, from years of experience and practice, and she is truly a healer and beloved part of the Brooklyn community.

I was very pleased with Dr. Dentler. I have two very difficult scaredy cats that she handled calmly and with ease. I was a little nervous with the tech guy however. He clearly did not know how to handle my kitties. He was chasing them around the office with a towel and huge gloves and asked, "Are they feral?" My cats and I were more than annoyed, but Dr. Dentler made up for this episode, for she clearly put them at ease. The office was very clean and didn't smell like animals. It was just a wee bit expensive, but I expect to pay for the excellent care my kitties received. She was also able to accommodate me the same day! This is definitely our new vet!
