Aimee peck from palm springs

Our beautiful boxer/pit mix Sassy suddenly became ill with IMHA and we were faced with this disease overnight Dr. Koodrich did what she could but they were not equipped with doing blood transfusions etc... Thank god for Cora (one of the employee's) she suggested we take Sas to VCA All Care in Fountain Valley ... she was at death's door she remained there 4 days had her transfusion and then we were on our way to a long road of meds and doctor visits Dr. Koodrich was like a gift from god her bed side manner was amazing she genuinely cared and unlike most places that will just turn you away due to lack of funds she didn't turn her back on us Sassy's high cost of meds were taking there toll, but we were able to make payments on our doctor visits which were once if not twice a week. Unfortunately Sassy lost her battle after 5 mos of fighting and i don't think i would have emotionally survived had it not been for Dr. Koodrich and the wonderful people at VCA Desert Animal Hospital. Sometimes pure compassion is the one thing that will make the difference ~ people may forget what you do for them , but they will never forget the way you made them feel ~ Thank you for making Sassy and us feel like She was worth the fight.
