We brought our beloved Maltese to the hospital after she suddenly became very ill and began bleeding from her urethra. Unfortunately, she passed on the trip to the hospital. We didn't know this until we got there because I had her wrapped in a blanket. The male staff member who met us at the door and gave us this heartbreaking news was extremely compassionate and understood our grief, as was the female vet who made arrangements for us. I am very thankful for their compassion and support. Diana T.
