Sincere Thanks
Patricia Winiecki and Brandon Burrow from Riversid from Riverside

We just wanted to thank you all for your wonderful service. We found everyone on your staff most professional. Whenever we would call, the staff always seemed very knowledgeable and most professional. I'm sorry we don't know most of your names, but please continue to do the excellent work as you do.

Over the past few years, we were assisted by many of your doctors. We want to thank Dr. Beeley, Dr. Vollaro, Dr. Kinney, Dr. Fong, and Dr. Johnson. We had appointments with all of you over the years. Although you may not remember us, we do remember each of you, and were always confident in the service each of you provided.

Our dear girl Sunny had hypothyroidism for the past 4 or 5 years. The doctors at your hospital monitored her status each time, making sure the thyroid numbers were as regular as possible.
We were always most pleased with the service at Central Animal Hospital. Anytime the doctors said they would call, they did. Anytime we called and requested a call back, they always did. This was very important to us.

Most recently, we noticed Sunny's loss of appetite, so we brought her in for tests. A few days later we brought her in a few days later, and were optimistic, as she had gained weight, and acted very alert. A few minutes later our worst nightmare was realized. Dr. Fong had the unfortunate job of delivering the test results, which were not good news for us. Sunny's kidney numbers were drastically high. We appreciate the time Dr. Fong gave us and the answers to all of our questions that day. We brought Sunny home with fluids and meds in hopes of a few quality days or weeks with her, but our dear girl was just too tired and did not feel well any longer. Her condition deteriorated drastically, and she would no longer eat on the 4th day. We chose to bring her in on January 9, 2001 so you could help her sleep and send her to heaven. We would like to thank Brandon for providing us with information prior to our visit. We would like to thank Roberta for her compassion and professionalism in assisting us that evening, and to Dr. Johnson for assisting us as well. The final moments were very peaceful and pleasant.

Again, we are sorry we don't know all of you by name, but please accept our heartfelt thanks to all of you at Central Animal Hospital for your dedication to our family members. We are devastated by the loss of our only child, and are also sad that we will not be seeing your wonderful staff regularly any longer.

Best Wishes to you all. Sincere thanks,

Sunny's parents
