I had hoped not to have to intervene, but towards the end, our family dog of twelve years, Angel, was rife with pain. Angel's suffering was too great for us to allow him to endure any longer and decided we would assist in his passing. One would expect that the veterinarien would be empathetic to our plight. Unfortunately, this was not the case when I called Dr. Lucas at around midnight. The call was not answered and there was no voicemail but, the doctor did return my call seven hours later. When I explained that my dog was suffering and crying she humphed at me and became pedantic, arguing the biological difference between crying (where tears are produced, which dogs cannot do) and whining. She said I needed an appointment and scolded me for not making one the night before, when I had initially called. I felt mocked and beaten down by her demeanor. We chose to go with someone else.
Had to put our little shih-tzu down just two days after Christmas. Didn't want the stress and coldness of a vet's office so we called Dr Lucas. She came, we said our good-byes to our furry friend of 14 years, and although it was sad for us, we were thankful that our dog's final moments were spent in familiar and quiet surroundings. We will be calling Dr Lucas in the future to treat the regular medical needs of our pets!
We had to put down our 13 year old lab. She was always terrified at a Vet's office and we knew we didn't want her to leave this world scared. We asked Dr. Lucas to come to our home. She called to confirm we were ready and was prompt. She came with her husband Mike and they allowed us the time we needed with Stella and explained everything to us. We couldn't ask for 2 more compassionate, professional, and respectful individuals to do this. They were wonderful. We also received Stella's ashes back just as they had stated. Thank You to both Dr. Lucas and Mike!
I have a bunch of young childrena nd dogs, so taking a trip to the vet is such a pain. Dr. Lucas came to my home and did an AMAZING job with my dogs. I will eventually have livestock too, so I am very glad that she does both. She is very reasonable, personable, and knowledgeable. Her truck is pretty awesome in terms of what it has on it and the things she can actually do onsite. I highly recommend her.
We are very pleased with Dr. Lucas in caring for our horses. She is easy to contact and always there when you need her. She is also a great mentor for our daughter who is a pre vet major always willing to teach her when she is in town. I would highly recommend her for large and small animal needs.
