  • Dr. Linda Colburn - Cost-effective care for Jason

    -Jane Genova from New Haven, CT
    Pet Name: Jason

    I was candid with Dr. Linda Colburn. I explained that after two iffy years for my communications boutique, I was in no position to spend a lot of money finding out what was wrong with my 16-year-old feline Jason. She got it.

    The outcome has been that after a low-cost testing procedure, we have ruled out the worst-case scenarios and are treating Jason with antibiotics for a kidney infection. There are no guarantees that he will live to be 100. But now I have the peace of mind that I am doing best by him, without spending money I don't have.

    There's a happy ending to the business part of my story. The day I brought Jason in for tests, I acquired two new clients for my business.

  • Gizzy

    -found from east haven, CT

    I am soo happy that the little tabby kitty Gizzy found a good home. I found this kitten and knew I could not care for her. I rushed the starving kitten to Foxon hospital and asked for them to save her and find a home. They assured me the kitten would be adopted out and I am so comforted to see this posting on their web page and at ease the kitten found a great home. Thank you

  • Gizzi, decided that he wanted to write his own

    -Iris from Meridan, CT
    Pet Name: Gizzi

    Pet Image My name is Gizzi. I had a bit of a rough start in life. I was only one week old when I was found abandoned in a driveway. Some nice people found me and brought me over to VCA in East Haven. I was given immediate care my doctors, technicians and anyone else whose heart strings I could pull at. I had such excellent care, that I soon began to thrive. I am told by my caregivers that I was, and am still a bit of a handful. At 10 weeks of age, I was adopted by my human mom. She has taken such good
    care of me. I have received all of my shots. I have been neutered and even received a microchip. I have to admit I wasn't even sure what a microchip was, but I don't think you can eat it. Mom, says that I am very mischievous and she felt much better knowing I could be found easily if ever lost. I am very nosy. I have jumped in the refrigerator and
    I spend a lot of time looking at the back door, which I am sure must lead to some new adventures. I know I was very lucky to receive such great care, at VCA. Mom, sends her best wishes to all who have nurtured me back to health. She thinks I am the cats meow, and we all know that mother knows best.
