I'm Sonny a West Highland White-Sonny from Las Vegas, NV
Pet Name: Sonny
I'm Sonny a West Highland White. I was given to my owners when I was about 3 months old. My owners other dog Shadow did not like me at first and hid under the bed to keep away from me. After about a week she was OK with me, but let me know that she was the boss.
My first three years were great. I was King of the backyard. Shadow and I kept all the birds and stray cats out.
I once swallowed a rock just for fun and had to have surgery. I developed bladder stone and had to have another surgery. Next I had a torn ACL on my left hind leg and another surgery for that. Things just started getting worse and I had another ACL on my right hind leg and the bladder stones came back, so another surgery to repair leg and stones. Whew!! A week later my good hind leg was not working right and I had an MRI and when my repaired leg was ready it did not respond either. After months of rehab, I was left with hind legs I couldn't walk on. So by this time I'm 7 and quite a mess.
The doctors at VCA Spring Mountain and the LVVSC rehab center have helped me through all this and it was decided to get me a cart. I now have wheels and can get outside and go for walks. I can't climb up a curb by myself, but I can jump down. I once walked 2 miles in the Wag A Tail Walk-A-Thon and got a certificate. My chest and front legs are all muscle (I would be a good weight lifter). I am now 11 years old and have been in my cart for 4 years and am doing fine. I am just like a person who can't walk. Dogs adjust like people (maybe better). We only want to be best friends, be loved and give love in return.
My thanks to Dr. Knighton, Dr. Wallace and Angela (my groomer) and all of the staff at VCA Spring Mountain Animal Hospital. A special thanks to my owners for not giving up on me. Sonny
Love VCA Spring Mt. Animal Hospital-Jessica Suarez from Las Vegas, NV
I brought my newly adopted dog to your facility. I was extremely pleased with everyone. The staff was great, and they even gave Stanley a toy while we waited. Dr. Wallace did a very thorough exam, answered all of my questions and had a great sense of humor too. I am bringing him for a groom this weekend and will be bringing my terrier-poodle to Dr. Wallace also. I have already recommended you guys to 2 of my friends and will continue to do so if anyone ask for a great vet. Thank you all for your wonderful caring attitude.
