The Two Docotors Who Saved Me... Princess Lilly - A 10 year old Dochshund. Dr Dudegeair was my doctor from the time I was 8 weeks old until December of 2010 when he retired. New kids in town - Dr. Simmon and Dr. Wanous. My first visit was due to an elevated liver panel. My mom was a very concerned and not so trusting of the new doctors. When repeated labds confirmed very high results I was started on Denamarin and wa to return in 30 days to repeat lab work to see if the new medication was working. However, on January 4 when no one was looking I ate 4 pieces of fried chicken! My tummy blew up like a balloon. Needless to say, my mom rushed me to see Dr. Simmons and Dr. Wanous wishing it were Dr. Rudegeair who she knew and trusted, but her back was against the wall - nothing to do now but trust the new kids. Very reluctantly she had to leave me all day while she went back to work - very worried. She must have called 20 times that day and each time with mote patience than a saint, Dr. Wanous took her calls and tried to put her mind at ease. When mom was told I would need to stay all night, she almost fainted but with a lt of instractuons to follow I was allowed to go home for the nice and was to come back the next dat for more love, care and x-rays. The news was not good! The bones were still in my tummy, not moving and I was starting to vomit again! Surgery : Oh my gosh - keeping her composure while in front of Dr. Wanous, my momwas falling apart but with no choice she had to leave me so I could have surgery. By this time the doctors knew my mom's fears and Dr. Wanous called her very 2 to 3 hours and tried to reassure her I was getting the best of care. *No Choice* I had to stay all night. The last call to my mom was at 5:30 PM. But the love and care did not stop there!! I was cared for all night literally, the doctors stayed with me all night. My mom called me at 8AM the next morning and once again Dr. Wanous took the call. She was told how good and sweet I was and that I was doing great. I was able to go home that night feeling vetter, but sore with lots of stitches. That was 3 weeks ago. Now i'm back to normal and will not be eatnig anymore chicken! We can't stay enough thanks to the best vets in town, Dr Simmon and Dr Wanous. Your knowledge, compassion and patience are appreciated more than we can say. We love and trust you! Many Thanks!
