VCA saved my life
Shilo from Carver

Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart! To the wonderful vets, technicians, desk staff, and anyone I may have missed-you all helped to save our German Shepherd puppy's life after she got hit by a car. She had lost a lot of blood on her way to the hospital, she was very lethargic, and she had developed a heart murmur. I was so thankful for all the care and expertise the VCA staff provided to Shilo. Thanks to all of you, she is healing and doing so much better! THANK YOU!
