Missy's Story
SLB from Drexel Hill

We've been bringing our two cats to see Dr. Tannert for several years. She is extremely knowledgeable and empathetic; we love her--she's the best!

We brought Missy in to be examined by Dr. Tannert. Being a stray, Missy had issues that needed immediate attention. Dr. Tannert did a great job, especially treating her ear hematoma which did not require surgery. She suggested that Missy should have a feline dental cleaning in the near future with Dr. Fitzgibbon.

Last month we had to bring her in as an emergency. She was seen by Dr. Murray who was so kind and attentive. The time had arrived for Missy's dental cleaning.

Dr. Fitzgibbon took care of our cat, Gaston for a dental cleaning and extractions. We were extremely pleased with her work so, we knew Missy would be in good hands. She informed us during the cleaning that she needed two extractions and why she needed them. Missy is now recovering & eating well--no visible signs of any problems from the extractions. Dr. Fitzgibbon is thorough, caring and compassionate; thank you for the TLC.

Don't want to forget to mention Terry who is the technician supervisor--she was a big help to us with Missy. Also, want to mention Donna who scheduled the surgery and was kind enough to personally follow up with us.
