Many thanks from Crybaby
Kimberly from Lancaster

Would just like to take a moment to say thank you for the kind, compassionate treatment my beloved Crybaby Cat received today from Dr. Sarah Urban and the staff at VCA. Sadly, my cat was terminally ill, and needed to be put down. While awaiting diagnosis, Dr. Urban had called to check on Crybaby at home, and offered suggestions to try to get him to eat. We honestly could not have asked for a more loving doctor to care for our cherished kitty, and when it was time to say goodbye, we knew he was in great hands. Thank you Dr. Urban.
