Thank you
Jeremy, Raffaella and Mark from Tracy

We want to thank Dr. Machicao and the entire staff for the compassion and kindness shown to us when our beloved cat was put to sleep. We loved him dearly and was truly part of our family. We are heartbroken over his death but Dr. Machicao explained to us that his kidney failure condition was chronic and that the humane thing was to put him to rest. We take comfort in the fact that our Bad Cat is not suffering anymore. Huge thanks to the kindest doctor ever, Dr. Machicao, for being there for us, for explaining things clearly, for not rushing us and for giving us so much of her time. In this moment of distress, we were lucky to be in such wonderful hands. I highly recommend VCA Old River Animal Hospital.
