Wednesday, July 4th, our 13 year-old lab, Levi, suffered a seizure around 4am. I thank Dr. Hocutt and the staff (I apologize for not getting everyone's name) for their kindness and expertise that morning. Your office staff working the wee hours of a holiday meant Levi didn't have to suffer any longer than necessary. I'm so grateful to you for that.
While I truly wish my gentle, loving dog had been able to go peacefully, your efforts kept his suffering to a minimum.
Today, Carlos, brought Levi's ashes to our home. He spent time talking with us, providing grief counseling in addition to private cremation. I'm not surprised the cremation service you work with was as equally kind as your office has been to us.
My husband, son and I thank you for your compassion.

Kahlua is a very special service dog. He was brought in by his owner when she noticed that Kahlua was acting very painful and didn't want to jump. After a thorough exam Kahlua went home with some pain meds. Kahlua's mom stopped by our Facebook page to send us a note on his progress.
"Just wanted to thank Dr. Cavanaugh, straight from the heart for seeing our Kahlua and putting our worries to rest. It was hilarious trying to get him to take his Tramadol.... cheese would not work but the Chunky Skippy did the trick. WE THINK YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!! So thank you, straight from the heart."

Sammers is an 11 year old, Black, Domestic Short Hair Cat. His owner noticed that Sammers was pacing, walking around in circles at home and crying out in pain.
"I would like to thank all of the staff who helped with Sammer's UTI. He was miserable, and you guys made him better. I cannot thank you enough for helping him. It is great to have a place to go when all the other vet clinics are closed."

Daisy is a 3 year old, White and Black, Pitt Bull Mix. This curious girl was caught eating some suspicious looking mushrooms. After contacting the Animal Poison Control Hotline it was recommended that she be hospitalized due to the possible toxic nature of the plants.
Daisy's mom sent us this Holiday Card and reassured us that Daisy has since made a full recovery. You can see in her eyes how smart Daisy is and we think that she's learned her lesson.

Minnie had received her annual vaccination from her primary veterinarian earlier in the day. After returning home Minnie started vomiting and was extremely lethargic. Needing after hours treatment Minnie was brought to our hospital to treat for a possible reaction to her vaccination. Happily, Minnie made a full recovery. Alan, Minnie's owner, is working with her primary veterinarian to safely modify her vaccination schedule.
"Many thanks for returning Minnie to good health! She's doing great now due to your expert medical care, so thank you again!! Very best wishes."
