Saved My SummerTyme's Life
Diane F. from Wilmington

I have been a client of VCA- Newark for three and a half years. During that time, my 3 cats have received outstanding veterinary care by Dr. Lynne Craine and the hospital staff, who treat the animals as if they were their own. Last Fall, my cat, SummerTyme began vomiting several times a day. Despite conservative treatment, SummerTyme continued to vomit. An ultrasound showed an external blockage of one of her ureters, the tube that leads from the kidney to the bladder. As a result of the blockage, SummerTyme's kidney was failing and needed to be removed--- immediately. Emergency treatment for a pet is always worrisome, but I was particularly concerned as SummerTyme is a "special needs" cat as she has a small hole in her heart. Under the skilled "magical" hands of Dr. Gayle Jaeger, the bad kidney was removed. After a few days in the ICU, SummerTyme returned home to her brother, Tobey and her sister, Molly. She is now a happy and healthy cat who does not seem to miss her lost kidney. I will always be grateful to the staff at VCA-Newark for their caring and compassion as well as their veterinary expertise-they saved SummerTyme's life!
