  • "Dr. Butterfield is one of the most caring vets we’ve known. Even our 18-year old cat, Oliver, immediately took to him–he articulated his affection very loudly and showed his appreciation by sharing something of a personal nature. Despite all of that, Dr. Butterfield called him a “good boy.” We love Dr. Butterfield!"
