A lifetime of great care & end of life compassion
Tammy Matherne from Metairie

My sweet, adorable, mischevious Duke had been going to VCA Causeway Animal for the last 14 years. He has received great care throughout the years with the many doctors he'd seen over these years. But, the last few years he had the most wonderful Doctor, Dr. Ponson. My sweet boy was always taken good care of, whether it be for a surgery or just boarding. It was with great heartbreak that I had to put him to sleep recently and I want to say thank you to the caring and compassionate staff for all they have done for me during this very difficult time. I especially want to say a huge thank you to Dr. Ponson for her kind and compassionate caring for Duke and my husband and I in Duke's final moments. He was truly at peace in those last moments. Also, thanks VCA and Dr. Ponson for the beautiful sympathy card I received yesterday when I picked up my sweet boys ashes. I will always be grateful. Sending you all many blessings.
