Not wanting to let my daughter's 16 year old cat, Chan--who had been her constant companion through some pretty rough years of her life--suffer anymore, she made the decision and I took him to Veterinary Emergency Clinic to find caring professionals who understood the tears and necessity to come in. The Dr. (Lassiter, I believe) allowed me some time after the IV insertion to calm Chan-Cat and then came in to quickly administer the medication to a barely breathing animal. Two breaths later, he passed peacefully. The Dr. stayed with me a few more moments and was compassionate and caring...altogether a positive experience for such a happening. Thanks to the caring staff and Dr. for helping ease suffering of a very loved animal.
We rescued a dog and took him to our regular vet...they could not find out what was wrong with him...after thousands of dollars and tons of useless medicine. One visit to Maze/Beckwith Animal Hospital and an x-ray they discovered the problem, did surgery, and our dog is doing GREAT now! Jenny Chatfield has AMAZING bedside(dog side) manners and spent a ton of time with us, explaining the precedure and recovery for our dog. She even came in on Sunday so we could see our dog after surgery! Their staff is so friendly and knew us by name after only one visit. I look forward to a long relationship with our new vet office.
