Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Services is by far the best veterinary clinic I have ever experienced! I consider my dog, Max, my child and he means the world to me. Unfortunately, an accident occurred resulting in a bowel obstruction due to a foreign object. After having surgery at another facility, complications ensued and he became very ill. We rushed him to TBVES, where Dr. Michelle Lentovich and her staff assessed Max. He was in septic DIC, which has an exceptionally low survival rate even in human patients. I was basically a complete mess and the staff was compassionate. Dr. Lentovich went over the options with me, but never gave up hope. Not only did she stay hours past the end of her shift to finish Max’s surgery, but she also saved his life. His chances of survival were still going to be questionable over the next several weeks. Max had a feeding tube, JP drains, a central line, and many different medications. Dr. Lentovich allowed Max to live there 24/7 so he could be continuously monitored by the staff. She would come in on her off days and off hours just to see how he doing and also cooked him food from her own kitchen to see if that would help him eat. Her daughters also created art for max’s IV wrapping! I was there for hours each day spending time with Max while he recovered and the entire staff at TBVES was amazing! They all genuinely cared about how he and I were doing! To top it all off, Dr. Lentovich and Dr. Kathy Meyer, the veterinary director, helped me tremendously by finding a charity fund to assist in offsetting a substantial portion of the veterinary costs. I can never repay them for saving Max’s life and the kindness they showed me. Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Services is the only place I would take Max! They are amazing!!!!
