Reading the thread about calling your doctor after hours got me thinking about our vet.... We had an old springer spaniel (Lizzie) and she was having all sorts of trouble on one weekend...She had a stroke on a Saturday afternoon. She was 12 yrs old at that time and we decided to wait til Sunday to decide whether or not to put her to sleep (something that we just dreaded thinking about!)...While Liz spent the night at home resting with us our vet called us to check on her and wanted me to call her back Sunday morning with an update. Well we woke up early Sunday morning and Lizzie had improved some...so I called our vet to check in. I remember this vividly....I talked with her for probably 45 minutes while she fed her little girl breakfast. She answered every question I had about the process we may have needed to go through. I apologized and tried get off the phone a couple different times to let her go about her Sunday morning ...but she was soo nice and reassuring to me..I have always remembered this and will be a customer of hers till she retires....Lizzie lived another 3 yrs!...and Dr. Sally was there with us the day the Lizzie went to the rainbow...And now, needless to say, she has been taking care of our Sophie girl (1-1/2 yr old lab) just like she did Liz. We love Dr. Sally and are blessed to have her as a vet!
