VCA Saved Trixie's Life
Kathryn Rodgers-Lang from Washington

I have had the pleasure of experiencing the services of VCA/MacArthur for the past 2 years. I have a 4-year old Cockapoo and a 2-year old teacup Schnauzer. In recent weeks, my Schnauzer, Trixie, became sick on a weekend. I arrived at VCA at 7:30 AM Monday with my little girl. I was scared to death, since she had taken a turn for the worse during the nite before. In walks Dr. Shillito, having arrived from a medical seminar in California the day before....where one of the topics was, "Pancreatitis in Schnauzers". As it turned out...it's exactly what Trixie's ailment was! OK...the seminar was wonderfully coincidental in this case...I was incredibly fortunate...but Dr. Shillito's quick, calm action, methodical diagnosis (several possible causes had to be ruled-out), the generous time spent with me and little Trixie, and the compassionate caring has made me a loyal patron. Trixie was at death's door, and she's had a full recovery! Dr. Shillito suggested a dietary regime, tailor-made for Trixie. I'm grateful and relieved that he had the nutritional knowledge, since this is critical for a dog with Trixie's condition. I cannot say enough about the entire staff. They kept a watchful eye on Trixie and their concern was so appreciated. My girls have also been treated by Dr. Morris, the senior member of the team...also a delightful, caring, extremely talented doctor. Dr. Hassell, yet another member of the staff, is also very talented and thorough. All 3 doctors...and the support staff... make the pet-owner feel that they are in very good hands. My sincere thanks to them all!
