  • Recognition for a special vet

    -Molly's Parents from Oaklawn, IL

    We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Thomas and candy for his kindness and expertise made our decisions for Molly easier. His devout sympathy at the end of her life was so comforting. His continued support for our new addition is so appreciated. this is only a small token of our feeling for Dr Thomas and Candy. He deserves much more recognition.

  • A Miracle

    -Mary from Oak Lawn, IL
    Pet Name: Abby

    Pet Image My cat, Abby, developed feline diabetes several years ago. Dr. Thomas was treating her at VCA Worth so when he moved to VCA Burbank, Abby & I followed him. Abby was being treated with a special diet as well as insulin injections twice daily for almost 3 years. Then the miracle occurred. Abby went into remission and has been fine for well over a year - no more insulin! I have to thank Dr. Thomas for his perseverance and his patience. Abby isn't called "Crabby Abby" for nothing. I also want to thank the rest of the staff for all their support. You all are the best!

  • Memorial

    -Roger Havlick, Sr. from Willow Sprigs, IL
    Pet Name: Laddy

    Pet Image My grandson's Laddydog developed a large abscess on his right side. After not receiving the best of care at a shelter, we were referred to VCA. Our dog received excellent care from both doctors. We are very pleased with the care and compassion that the doctors gave both to our dog and to us! We can not say enough good things about these fine doctors. Or dog did not pull through and passed away, but they put forth their best effort for him and us. We will return in the near future when we get a new dog.

  • Kind Man

    -Sherry Vonderheide from Bridgeview, IL
    Pet Name: Chase

    Dr. Thomas has to be one of the kindest people I have come across in my life. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to help your pets. I know this from my experience with him with my 2 cats Nikki and Chase. I want to thank him from the bottom of my heart for everything he has done. I also want to thank Candy as well, she is another beautiful soul.
