Kyuri-The Matsudas' from Pearl City, HI
Our beloved Kyuri was diagnosed with IMHA in August 2010 and spent 5 days in the hospital where she received the most excellent care any pet could ever receive. The doctors and staff took such good care not only of our pet but of our family, answering all of our questions and concerns. Ultimately we had to make one of the toughest decision to put her to sleep. Even through that process we were constantly assured that she was not in pain and that everything that could have been done had been addressed.
We feel blessed to have been touched by the kindness and expertise of the entire staff of this clinic and will definitely come back when we decide to get another pet.
From Pet to Family Member-The Shimabukuros from Ewa Beach, HI
Pet Name: Hershey
Dear Dr. Fry and the wonderful staff at VCA,
We thank you so much for taking great care of our dog, Hershey. At first I thought I was getting a dog as a pet, and now I can't remember when she transformed into a family member. Thanks for all your love and kindness, we're grateful for all of you.
Love, The Shimabukuros
Expert Hands-Carol Beavers from San Antonio, TX
Pet Name: Bailey
Hi Dr. Hashimoto,
Don't know if you remember we brought Bailey and Pepper Beavers, our Australian Shepherds (Dave and Carol, owners) in for health certificates before moving from Hawaii to San Antonio. You felt something in Bailey's abdomen and made us promise to check it out in Texas! We did have it x-rayed and there was a mass there, looking like it came from the spleen.
Today we had an ultrasound done and they told us it is coming from the spleen and there looked to be lesions on the liver and possibly one kidney. His lungs are clear at this time. We have an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow, but due to Bailey's age (almost 14) and the possible rapid spread of what they think is probably hemangiosarcoma, we may opt to do nothing and let him enjoy his life without the added trauma of surgery. But we do want to know what all the options are. (we opted not to have a needle biopsy if it was on the spleen due to possible complications and we didn't want to stress him out more)
Anyway, I wanted to thank you for your expert hands and finding the mass. You were so kind to us and thoughtful, I thought you might want to know what had happened. By knowing that the mass is there we can be watching for decline and hopefully he won't suffer. So as painful as it is knowing about it, we hope with that knowledge that we can do the right thing by Bailey. So that you for that!
Bailey is still active and playful, so we hope that will continue for a long time. Again, we appreciate your caring and thoughtful ways. Thank you to your staff as well. I'm sorry I can't remember their names, but please tell them thank you too!
