Cuffs and Dr. Coleman-cindi flating from honolulu, HI
Pet Name: Cuffs
Dr. Coleman and the entire staff handled my 18 year old kitty, Cuffs, with kid gloves. When it was determined no more could be done for her, Dr. Coleman was there to help me (and Cuffs) through the final minutes of her life. The personal touches (sympathy card, Rainbow Bridge poem) were also much appreciated. Thank you, Dr. Coleman.
Dr. Zachary Albudri and Staff are LIFESAVERS-Renee from Honolulu, HI
Pet Name: Dyna
My husband and I came into the hospital with our small Pomeranian Dyna last Sept. We know our pets very well and although we had no idea "what" was wrong, we did know "something" was wrong with her.
Come to find out she had eclampsia; which is a life-threatening condition. However due to the fast actions of the staff and Dr. Zachary Albudri's quick diagnosis and prompt administration of the proper treatment she was doing great in just a couple of hours.
When we were able to go in and see her she still had an IV in, and looked a bit frazzled, but she was perking up and beginning to act like herself again. After a few hours we got to take her back home with us!
I can not express enough how very thankful we are to everyone there!!
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!
