Comments :    I have been using Handel With Care for my vet needs for our cats for over 15 years. I can't say enough about the fantastic care that they have provided to us over the years. What first brought us to them goes back to 15 years ago. We had just gotten to shelter cats and one of them got bitten up pretty badly from a unknown wild animal. At the time we had been using another local vet. When we called them in a panic and asked if we could bring our cat in for emergency service we were told that they were closing for the day. We were told to take her to an emergency clinic in Manchester. I then decided to call Handel With Care. Even though they were about to close up they said to immediately bring our cat to the office. They took her in after hours and attended to her needs even though we were not regular customers. Well, from that point on we were big fans of Handel With Care and we have never been let down!

Comments :    I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Handel and his staff at Handel With Care. My little Tobias has many special needs and he has been cared for by this staff in the most wonderful, kind way. I know they love my little dog as much as I do and I am so grateful for all the support and care we have received! Captain Kitty wants to thank you all, too!

Comments :    The staff at Handel With Care are wonderful. Our Guinea Sammie passed away a month ago and the staff was great during this most difficult time. We had Sammie cremated and before doing so they gave us her paw prints and a clipping of her hair. They are all compassionate.

Comments :    Leave it to Chicken the cat to get out without anyone knowing the night before we moved to Florida. The next morning when we realized he wasn't in the house we panicked, searched our neighborhood for 5 hrs and then had to make the heart breaking decision to leave him behind. I contacted Handle with Care and asked if they would be able to take Chicken in in the event that our neighbors found him. After a month of re-posting my lost cat ad on craigslist and catfinder.org, a neighbor a couple of houses down emailed me to say that they had found the cat they thought might be Chicken and they were taking him to Handle with Care as my ad requested. After receiving texted pictures, I knew it was him! All the staff at Handle with Care went above and beyond treating Chicken to the best care while I made arrangements to fly back to Derry and retrieve him. Chicken is now back at home healing from his winter adventure in the wild thanks to everyone at the best veterinary office in New England, Handle With Care!

Comments :    Best Vet around. We have had two cats who had to be put to sleep and the staff was wonderful and caring. Recently had an feral outdoor cat we had been taking care of for the past two years. He was hit by a car and I was really upset. Called Handel With Care to see about having him cremated. Kim worked with me and helped me through a very upsetting time as I was trying to make him a house pet. The staff once again understood and helped me so much. Now have two cats at home and would never bring them any where but Handel With Care. The footprints of the feral cat will be with me always. Thanks so much it means a lot.

Comments :    I'll never forget my first meeting with Dr. Handel. My bird Rockstar was bleeding from a broken blood feather. I was freaking out, and the poor bird was hurt. I walked into the room and meet Mr. Handel is I was instantly calm; I knew he would be able to help Rockstar. Doctor Handel not only helps my bird but sooths a hysteric and scared female. Rockstar and I have unfortunately grown apart. I know to have four children, and we are all very busy. She has picked up a habit of plucking, and my heart breaks every time I see her. Rock star is a healthy bird but needs a home that will cater to her. Judy from Dr. Handles is the most amazing women. She herself has the gift of people and animals. Judy has treated me with compassion and respect. Judy helped me find a good home for Rockstar. When times are hard people come into your life for a reason. Judy has gone beyond reason and showed my family humanity and love. Thank you!

Comments :    I met Dr. Handel l5 years ago when my lab became ill and my vet at the time was too busy to see him. Dr. Handel took him in right away. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I brought my little yorkie to him as a puppy. Dr. Handel and his entire staff took such good care of him over the years. Carol was his groomer, and she did a great job making him the cutest dog in the world. Two weeks ago he had to be euthanized. I cannot say enough about the compassionate nature of Dr. Handel and his entire staff. Dr. Handel is not only the best vet on the planet, but he is a wonderful person. I have told all my friends to take their animals to Handel with care. Sometimes people say, "its too expensive". I feel you get what you pay for. Would you go to a doctor just because he was cheap. We want the best care for our little furry friends, after all they are part of our family. I would like to thank Handel With Care for l5 years of compassionate care.

Comments :    Today I called my usual vet because my dog had an ear infection. They couldn't see her until Monday and she was yelping, digging, shaking her head...obviously in pain! Of course they could squeeze her in for a $99 emergency fee. Called Handel With Care..took her right in. So caring and gentle. What a great staff and wonderful vet! Also when her meds fell out of the bag in the office, one of the staff members dropped it off at my house on her way home. Thank you so much for seeing Bella today! We have a new vet now for sure!

Comments :    Concern, Care, Compassion.... Saying good bye to a beloved pet is a very difficult and confusing time. One thinks back to the months proceeding searching for comfort, this confort came to me in the form of the concern and care received at Handle With Care. I can not thank or praise Dr. Handle and his staff enough for the attention given to my beloved J Henry over this last year. They were always there for us, mornings, evenings,or weekends, J Henry's well being was their first concern. His health issue had been researched and the course of care discussed at length, during his treatment many follo up calls were made to see how he was doing. Last week he failed to respond to his treatment, the time had come to put his comfort first and say good bye. I was so touched as the techs on duty that morning took the time to come into the room to epress their sorrow and say good bye with me. Dr. Handle and his staff gave the up most concern and care, at the end I most appreciated their compassion. Thank you

Comments :    We now live in Florida and I really miss all the Handel with Care staff. Everyone at Handel with Care treats you and your pet as though you really matter. They take a real interest in you and always greet you in a friendly and receptive manner. Nothing is too much trouble. Dr. Handel's care of our pets will never be surpassed. He is thorough, takes the time to explain in a manner which you can understand, and gives options. I thoroughly recommend the entire Practice and wish I could move it to Florida!

Comments :    Dr. Handel took care of our siberian huskies for almost eleven years. He always treated our dogs with care, us with respect, listened to our concerns, and was upfront about any situation or course of treatment that needed to be addressed. His diligence and attention to detail when routine blood work was performed on our older dog, led to the discovery of Rocky Mountain Fever, a disease transmitted by ticks. Although we check our dogs routinely for ticks, apparently one must have gotten through the radar. With no visible symptoms, we would have had no way of knowing our little guy was seriously ill until it was too late. After the prescribed course of antibiotics, our boy recovered completely. We believe Dr. Handel saved his life. We would also like to add that Dr. DeFanti did a wonderful job when our dog Deno needed to have an eyelid tumor surgically removed. The surgery was a complete success, and the remaining scar is scarcely visible. We have moved out of the area and are no longer able to go to Handel With Care Veterinary Hospital. However, we would recommend Dr. Handel to anyone who wants an outstanding veterinarian. We hold Dr. Handel and his staff in the highest regard and cannot thank them enough for all they've done for us and our dogs over the years. Mark & Denise Labore Deno & Brisco (and our old friend Kenai)
