Caring for pets... and their people, too.

Golden puppies
Robin Langguth from Plano

We were so grateful for the excellent care we received under the guidance of Dr McCullough who helped us through a difficult whelping experience. We brought our Golden Retriever in who after delivering 4 pups could not deliver anymore. An X- ray revealed 9 more puppies. After several hours of trying to deliver them she called in Dr Abel who not only performed the C-section but saved the mother's life through quick information/decisions that ultimately led to spaying her. She needed a unit of blood which VCA had on hand. If this surgery had happened elsewhere the needed blood would most likely not been available. My most heartfelt thanks to the entire team that worked so hard to save both the litter and the mother. The attention to our situation and accommodation to our pet was superb. Thank You!
