Our Tough Old Girl
Kenneth Cottrell from Great Falls

The Cottrell family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks at the care that you and your staff provided our dog Misty. We know that the surgery took several hours, but you still took the time to personally call when it was completed late on a Friday night. The pre and post-operative care VCA Herndon-Reston Animal Hospital provided was remarkable, and we have no doubt that Misty could not have been in better hands. Our "tough old girl" as you liked to refer to her could not have done it without you.

We commend you and your staff, and wish you continued success and many more happy outcomes." - May 29, 2009
