This Letter to the Editor came to us from Kathy Bouker. See what she had to say about the Valley Animal Hospital, 1830 Merriman Road, below.
Kudos to Valley Animal Hospital. After several sleepless nights with our 11 year old Weimaraner, Gypsy, we knew she had to euthanized, Every time she tried to get up she would fall and end up like a beached whale on the floor, She had ripped her skin struggling to get up, stopped eating; lost control of her bowels and was no longer the beautiful and playful dog we knew.
We called someone to come to our house to end her misery, My son suggested we try one more step and let Valley Animal Hospital look at her and put her down. (Mainly because they were closer to home).
As my husband and son hoisted her in the car and went to get his wife and children we all started the mourning, My husband and I talked about what a wonderful dog and mother she had been. She was not the greatest show dog like her father but such an obedient dog. What was our Boston Terrier going to do without her?
We were given a private room and the family said their good-byes. My husband and I were crying when Dr. Mann entered and we were ready.
If anyone has ever had a weim they are quirky dogs and will fool you every time. As Dr. Mann was asking us some questions as if she knew Gypsy stood up and tuned to the vet as if to say I need some help. She struggled to stay up long enough to use her charm.
Dr. Mann suggested she keep he overnight. She administered blood work, laser treatments, meds and now a week later Gypsy is back chasing bunny rabbits in the backyard . (she never gets them) Her playmate Baxter is resting comfortably with her buddy by her side...
When everyone wanted to give up Valley Animal Hospital was there.
Thank you for being in our community.
