Thank You for the Open House
-The Zawackis Family from Bensalem, PA
Dear Dr. Newman and VCA Neshaminy Animal Staff;
We wanted to thank you for inviting us to your Open House. The VCA staff was very friendly. The refreshments were fresh and delicious. The vendors were very helpful.
Dr. Sweeney was gracious enough to take the time to give my sisters and I a tour of your new operating room, x-ray room, treatment area and kennels. She patiently answered our questions and was a pleasure to be with.
And finally, meeting Officer Schum, his K9 partner Argo, and Sgt. Richardson, was a delight. Watching Argo, Officer Schum and Sgt Richardson in action help us realize and appreciate what our police officers do every day.
This is what we've come to expect the VCA Neshaminy staff to be - friendly, caring and informative - to us and our pets.
Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon!
The Zawackis Family
Thanks From Kutja
-Doug Wieland from Yardley, PA
Pet Name: Kutja
Dear VCA Staff:
To me, Kutja was the most beautiful Labrador, inside and out, that I have ever seen in my life. The lives of each of my wife and two daughters were deeply touched, and forever changed by the presence of this wonderful female yellow lab.
For just over 14 1/2 years, you all at VCA cared for the best friend I ever had in this world, treated her with the best professional care I've ever seen in the veterinary field, and supplemented that care with the most personal, friendly attention that made Kutja's many trips to your office a true pleasure. The wagging tale of a Lab when told of something pleasant, doesn't lie. She enjoyed the attention that each and every one of you gave her.
I know that all good things must come to an end but, when it does, you still can't believe it. Unfortunately for Kutja, the battles with three different cancers, Vestibular Disease, and finally Pneumonia were just too much to bear for her any longer, and I recently had to make the hardest decision in my 63 years on this earth.
Kutja died peacefully in my arms this past Memorial Day but, I know she never would have been with us this long without the great care and attention that you offered her for all these years.
My family and I will never forget all of you and, hopefully sometime in the not too distant future, I'll be back to see you all again with a "new little girl" who I know will be needing and getting the same excellent care!
All the best,
-Patrick O'Mara from Oakford, PA
Pet Name: Jack
Even before I obtained my dog Jack, the staff at VCA Neshaminy went well above and beyond in informing me of the necessary treatments, cost estimates, time lines and services available. Jack has been under the care of VCA Neshaminy since the very day I brought him home and there's not a day that goes by that am thankful for the genuine care and concern that they give him. There's a feeling of relief knowing that I can trust they will always do the right thing. I wouldn't want him being cared for by anyone else. Thank you for all you do for someone that is a vital part of my everyday life.

Pet Name: Music, Isis, and Amber
As the owner of multiple retired racing greyhounds, I was happy to find a "grey-savvy" Veterinarian in Dr. Newman at VCA. I was even happier to be a client of VCA last February. My oldest greyhound was severely injured by another dog and I feared that she would not survive. Dr. Connelly and Dr. Newman performed emergency life-saving surgery on my sweet Music (who was 12 years old at the time). Over the past year and a quarter, Music has received after-care from these doctors as well as Dr. Friedman and Dr. Sweeney. She is now a happy, healthy, and HEALED 13 year old. This wonderful team of Veterinarians, Technicians, and support staff has my undying gratitude and affection. The loving care Music received has made a great difference in both her life and mine.
THE HARDEST DAY OF MY LIFE
-Deb Ziccardi from Bensalem, PA
Last week our beloved dog Rerun a mixed breed who was almost 17, had to be put to rest. The staff along with Dr. Sweeney were so caring, thoughtful, and empathetic, they made the hardest day of our family's life a little more bearable.
-Baratucci Family from Philadelphia, PA
Pet Name: Trudy
We would like to thank Dr Melissa King and the staff for there compassion with one of the hardest decisions we had to make. On Thursday 6/23 we rushed our wonderful little dog Trudy to the hospital. She had been sick for quite some time but her regular Vet was out of town and we couldn't get to him. I called and they gave me an emergency appointment immediately. Unfortunately, Trudy wasn't going to get better only worse and they helped me make the decision to let her go. I will never forget your kindness.
Best animal care

Grateful for a vet I can trust

I have been coming to VCA Neshaminy for at least 13 years. I relied so much on Dr. Newman for his expertise and humor. He is a great doctor! I wish him well with his recovery.
Since that time, I began seeing Dr. Janet Distler. Not knowing her at all, I was hesitant but the office staff knew that I would really like her. I have found her to be an INCREDIBLE veterinarian. She spends a great deal of time discussing options for treatments and procedures and is always willing to listen to me. She knows my dogs and knows that my expectations of a vet are high. I am more than satisfied and extremely grateful with everything she does for my six dogs.
I appreciate all of the hard work and dedication of the VCA veterinarians and staff. Thank you.
Thank you for your years of caring
-John J. Russell from Penndel, PA

Finally, a Vet who cares.
-Jesse Prusinski from Langhorne, PA
Pet Name: Snoopy,Oscar,Abbey,Patches,Bandit
My family have been taking our dogs to many different Vets over the years and Thankfully we came across this Animal Hospital. Our oldest was very ill and Dr. Sweeney could not of been more caring and understanding towards our needs as well as our beloved "Snoopy". The entire staff treats you and your animal with respect and that goes a long way nowadays. We bring all of our animals here now, and try to spread the word to friends and family about the care we received. Now we know no matter what happens to our pets, they were cared for 100% along the way. Thank you so much for being Animal lovers.
