  • Dog Poisoning

    -Bob McCann from Westerly, RI
    Pet Name: Hazel

    My 2 yr old Boykin Spaniel ingested rat poison. Dr. Gilbert and her team did a perfect job tending to Hazel (and her owner). They were professional throughout the treatment, kept me informed every couple of hours and followed up several days later to see how the dog was feeling.

    I am so impressed with this hospital and staff.

  • Should have never left

    -John Dalton from Westerly, RI

    We left Turco's a few years ago because basically without Turco primarily running the place anymore and missing his outstanding care, we thought we would find another local vet clinic and save a little money as the prices went up significantly.

    Having said that, I had to put down my dog tonight for something that most likely would've gotten picked up my Turco's and the staff there. My dog had to suffer for 3-6 months for something that should've gotten diagnosed based on symptoms we discussed up at Ocean State.

    After this, I truly wish I had never left because the overall care of my dogs dwindled as a result of not getting the truly professional care I got there.

    This is a mistake I will not make again when I am ready to have a dog again.

    Thank you Dr. Turco for the years of good care I received. Those were the best years of my dogs lives.

  • Story of My Porkchop

    -Cathy Tackling from Pawcatuck, CT
    Pet Name: Porkchop

    Last week my Bassett hound was throwing up her food, would not drink, had trouble walking, was in pain - I called VCA Turco Animal Hospital at the urging of my neighbor who brings her animals there. I am so happy I made this phone call. They had me bring Porkchop right in and for the past 5 days Dr. Hayden and the staff of Turco Animal Hospital have devoted an awful lot of time to seeing that my girl gets well. She has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease and she also is having some problems walking (maybe due to a disc problem). I am so very impressed as to how much information I am being provided with and the attention my dog is getting. We are not through the woods and I am sure we have a long road ahead - but to feel like my dog is being taken care of so well really adds to my peace of mind.
