Family
Maggie MacFarlane from Davie

We all know that our animals are not just our 'pets�, they are members of our families and to that end, when they are sick or in need, we want to know that they will be cared for with professional expertise, tenderness, and kindness. Perhaps as important, we, as their caregivers, want assurances that we will be educated, allowed to make choices and then supported through the processes. We have had VCA doctors caring for our family for 16 years and would go nowhere else.

From experience, we recently lost 2 members of our family, mini dachshunds, Louise and Cinnamon. Louise ate a baited fish hook and while recovering from surgery fell ill to liver failure due to her 15 yrs of age. Given many choices through the long 6 weeks of surgical recovery, taught patiently by both Dr. Clark, Medical Director and Dr. Gonzalez, associate; we were handheld by the caring staff of VCA Promenade and unfortunately had to make the difficult decision to put Louise to sleep. We were NEVER alone, during her care giving nor ultimately in her death. The staff who had become 'family� stood by our side and cried with us.

Cinnamon, at 16 yrs of age, was discovered to have an abdominal mass. Again Drs. Clark and Gonzalez cared enough to give us the facts, detail the options and personally answered our desperate after hour calls through the ensuing months. They simply encouraged us to love her and care for our elderly one. Cinnamon enjoyed her last days at home because we were once again supported all along the way, through our choices, care giving and decision making.

Lucy, a double dapple mini dachshund at 4 months has now joined our family filling some of the void. We thought of NOWHERE else and no one else we would trust to give us her '10 day post sale� bill of good health. She�s on schedule with her checkups and has been detailed nose to tail. We care deeply about keeping our animals/family members healthy and we know that the doctors and staff at VCA Promenade care deeply too, not only for our pets but for us as well.

Thank you.

Maggie, Samantha and Alyssa Macfarlane�and Lucy!
