Saving Annie
Kim Shaffer from Bristol

Annie got sick on a weekend. I took her first to the emergency vets in Blountville since it was Saturday night where she was given a shot for nausea and some fluids. The next day, she was worse and would not eat and even threw up water when she tried to drink.
I called VCA and was told that Dr Robinson would come in and see her. Our Beagles are members of our family and I knew Annie would be in good hands.
Dr Robinson, being the consummate professional she is, did blood work, x-rays and an ultrasound, all on a Sunday.
Nothing was conclusive but it was apparent that Annie was a very sick little girl. She had to spend the night in the hospital and this was the first time that girl ever left my side since she was born.
The next morning, Dr Robinson called early. She and her staff had found some type of problem near her small intestines and surgery was the only way to save Annie's life.
I was relieved later that day when again Dr Robinson called to let me know that Annie was recovering. Surgery had revealed a huge abscess on the connective tissue of her small intestines.
It was that very moment I realized just how good these folks are. How many vets would go this far for a pup? Most would just say, "she ain't worth it let's put her down" and expect me to accept it.
Every morning and every night Dr Robinson would call and let me know how Annie was doing. She even went out after work on her own time and bought chicken to boil and came back to the hospital to convince Annie to eat after her surgery. This lady has angel wings under her white coat!
Annie is back home, safe happy and healthy. She just had a post op check-up today and got her staples out. There are no words to truly express my gratitude to the truly professional doctors and staff at VCA Highlands. If you love your fur child, there is no better place and no more caring folks than what you will find there.
