My Four Legged Child
Donna from Seven Valleys

My name is Donna Gentzler and I am the proud mom of a two wonderful four legged children. One of them, a Rat Terrier named Pepse has been very ill since June 14th, 2009, my birthday. Pepse developed a blood disorder requiring drugs, which ultimately resulted in pancreatitis and type II diabetes. A local vet missed all the signs and by the time we took Pepse to the hospital she was near death. The doctors at specialty hospital saved her but the real life saving was determined by the care I can provide for her.

My mission was to find the best possible vet in town that would care for Pepse the same way as I did. I did a lot of research on the Internet and sent several e-mails to those that impressed me. That was on Sunday, first Sunday after we brought my baby home.

The following Monday morning I received a call that took my breath away. Jamie, wonderful, wonderful sweet girl, technician, called back in reference to my e-mail. Wow, it wasn't even 24 hours since my e-mail. What service! We had a lengthy conversation and by the time I hung up I was in tears. The caring and kindness Jamie conveyed to me was more than I could handle. Jamie invited me to come in that Monday to meet her and doctor Lukacs. That afternoon my husband and I met Jamie and Dr. Lukacs. I had a difficult time holding back tears; both were just the nicest, caring and considerate professional individuals I knew that VCA Old Trail hospital was the place that my two babies cannot do without.

We've made many visits now and I love everyone there. They deserve to be mentioned by name, but sadly I am really bad with names. Dr. Lukacs is a WOW doctor. If you are looking for a caring veterinary office, go no further, this is the place. You will know immediately after the first greeting over the phone, it's as if they were your friends. You never wait and are forgotten, you are respected all the way.

It gets better, send an e-mail and Tracy, the assistant hospital manager, responds to them immediately. And if she happens to be off, she has the doctor call you, is that service or what?

Have you ever been to a vet or a human doctor where you set in the waiting room waiting and being ignored, we all did. This will not happen at the VCA Old Trail hospital. They are so attentive and if you happen to sit there for a minute or two, they acknowledge you and apologize for the wait. Hey, I wish this was my doctor's office.

I'm originally from Philly and finding the right vet took me 3 years, but I finally found one. They love my babies, and I love them. If you are looking for a quick annual check or medicine refill, this is not the place. These people are great and there is nothing quick about the service they provide. But you don't have to listen to me, pick up the phone or stop in; you will know I am right.

By the way, thanks to the Old Trail VCA staff my baby is leading a normal life.
