Excellent Service and Support
Bella from Corpus Christ

I want to take this opportunity to thank the doctors, directors, specialists, technicians, front office staff and other individuals that are employed with VCA Oso Creek Animal Hospital and serve this community. The love, care and compassion they have demonstrated the many times I’ve taken my little ones for treatment or services have been beyond measure. Moving to this area three years ago, I found this amazing hospital through the many people I worked with and met who felt that their care would be in the best of hands and kindest of hearts. That has been my experience with each visit. Difficult decisions I have had to make resulting in very sad and painful moments, I would not have been able to understand without the caring and honest nature of those who helped me through these trying times. I know in my heart, my little Popo was in a place that saw to his every need with compassion and that his passing was comfortable and peaceful, surrounded by those who gave him the best of care. I take great solace and comfort in that. I now visit this hospital on a daily basis with my little Sofie and each day that I arrive, no matter the hour, I am greeted with professionalism, patience, empathy and concern. Every individual who handles my little one, be it the front office staff, doctors and technicians, do this with kind and loving hands and hearts and her treatments are tolerable because she’s given such love and attention until her treatments are completed. Upon our arrival, she knows what and who awaits her and she demonstrates no unwillingness during that entire time. I can only credit those who see to her needs with such dignity and love. I know in my heart she is not long for this world, but in the time she is with me, I know each day is filled with people who care for her and treat her as if she was their very own. I will be forever grateful for such wonderful service from those who continue to provide such compassion and care. This facility is truly blessed with personnel that see to our needs as a “family.” Each member in this "family" receives the dignity, respect and support needed in order to maintain a loving balance at home and at this hospital. Thank you so very much. Bella
