"Dr. Putter is absolutely the best when it comes to taking care of our cat, Kali. He's gentle and kind to her and also makes us feel safe and welcome at the same time. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know! If you need someone who is knowledgeable, professional, super nice and of course caring - then definitely look no further."

"Dr. Phil gives the best care with the greatest care! He treats our dog like it's his own, which is all one can ask for in a vet."

Seth + Little Dude

"Dr. Putter is the best vet we have ever had. So thorough and caring. Our two Bulldogs love him! His concierge service is so convenient for us with two dogs and a one year old son makes my life easier! Highly recommended!"

Marissa + Bella

"I moved to Greenwich, with a 16-year-old dog who has a few different health issues, and I was worried about getting established with a new vet. I am so glad I found Dr. Putter. He is extremely thorough and conscientious. He spent a lot of time with me, going over my dog's history and also discussing how to best maintain his health and quality of life. I ask lots of questions and Dr. Putter always answers them completely. When there are different options for treatment, Dr. Putter will explain each one thoroughly, so that I feel like I can make the best decision for my dog. I feel like Dr. Putter and I collaborate as a team to optimize my dog's health and well-being. If that's the kind of relationship you want with your vet, Dr. Putter is the one!"
