I know my animals are getting the best care here. The staff is super friendly. Dr.Hensen really takes the time to go over things with me. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have gone to a number of vets in the area over the years, but none of them has ever been as wonderful as Dr. Hensen. She takes the time to sit down with me and explain whatever issues are going on with my dogs, and she's even called me back with bloodwork results. I feel at home at the office, and she has a wonderful staff! Keep up the great work!!

I have been going to Dr Hensen for many years and owe so much to her and her staff for keeping my dogs healthy throughout their lives. She is very thorough and leaves no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of a problem. I had two dogs that each lived to be 15, one of which was a diabetic. She taught me how to administer the insulin shots and what signs to look for in the event of a problem and was always there for me in case of emergency. She even delivered some insulin syringes to me on her day off once when I ran out. She has done life saving surgeries and under her watchful eye, her head technician Kelly and her entire staff, my babies recovered completely. I now have a new puppy that already has become a part of their family. This is a wonderful facility and much more, they become your friends and really take a personal interest in your pet. I highly recommend Dr Hensen and her staff for quality and compassionate care.

My beautiful 11 year old yellow lab is now on his death bed with mast cell cancer because of this place. 2 years ago he developed a cough that was asked about several times within the 2 years as it got worse. Dr Hensen insisted it was "old age" every time with no further concern, suggestions, or options to rule anything else out. Within the past couple of weeks, he had strange swelling on his paws, ears, violent vomiting, no appetite, and diarrhea. Every test imaginable was done with no abnormal results, and several trips back and fourth totaling well over $1,000.00 just within the past couple of weeks. Not once were x-rays suggested. We were given several different medications. One that if you can believe it, made him worse. He had every side effect of this medication. So we took him off to get it out of his system. Brought him back and she was insistant on keeping him on these meds that made him even more violently ill. No way. After 2 weeks and well over $1,000.00 later with 0 progress, we woke up to find that he deficated on himself while laying on the floor. We finally brought him to a vet in West Hartford where we told them the symtoms and they knew almost immediatly just from describing the symtoms. X-rays were taken and it was determined within an hour that he had mast cell cancer in his spleen that had spread to his chest. We are so devestated. As soon as I found out what it was I googled it. Seems that a cough is part of the spleen cancer. If we had caught this 2 years ago, he wouldn't be in this position today. All I had to do was google the diagnosis to find out that a cough is one of the signs of this cancer. You would think a vet would have a clue since it is extremely common in labs. The amount of money that was given to this vet to basically send our dog to his death bed sickens me. On top of all of this, the meds that were given that had absolutly nothing to do with his sickness. He is well and comfortable for now, but there is no way to tell how much time we have left with him, and it sucks.

DO NOT BRING YOUR ANIMALS HERE. I have reported these people to the attorney General and the better business bureau. They almost killed our dog. 6 months of misdiagnosis and misguiding us, and taking all of our money and we found out what was wrong by googling it and taking him to another vet. Our puppy is on his death bed and these people are sitting pretty on our money. Please whatever you do...do not bring your animals here.

I brought my rescued cockatoo to Somers Vet. Dr Hensen and her staff were caring and committed to helping my seriously injured bird. It took 3 years and sometimes daily visits, but Dr Hensen brought my smart, funny and happy Lola back to health. I cannot say enough nice things about Dr Hensen and her friendly, knowledgeable staff.

I have taken three dogs and one parrot there and Dr. Hensen and her staff can't be beat! She is a through and knowledgeable vet., who takes plenty of time to explain everything to you. She and her staff really love the their patients, you can tell. And since she is the only vet. there, it's like going to your own private doc. rather than a clinic. The staff, who are knowledgeable in their own right, and Dr. Hensen really end up being a valuable resource for even those "stupid" questions you feel welcome to call them for. I wouldn't take my pet anywhere else.

I had brought my three year old German Shephard to another well-known area vet twice for an ear problem. Each time they cleaned the ear out and said all was well. I wasn't convinced. I then brought her to Somers Vet Hospital where she was diagnosed with a bacterial infection that could have lead to deafness. After treatment all is well again. This vet really cares about the animals she sees whereas the other area hospital is more of an assembly line mentality. Hats off to Somers Vet Hospital!
