Very Caring and Compassionate
A very happy client from Rancho Bernardo

While we mourn the loss of our dear lab, Rusty, age 15, we have to sincerely thank you all for making his long life so wonderful. Through all his medical "situations" you were always there with professionalism and caring. Our very special thanks to Dr. Hackett, she is a GOD! Now that we've lost 2 pets in the last 9 months, w need to grieve again. (You helped us with Hannah just 9 months ago.) More special thanks to Sharon, Gina, Nan and Karla, as will as Dr. Savage and Dr. Robbins. You're all the BEST! (and techs I am surely forgetting) When I get the courage, you'll see me again with our next dog. Til then, stay well and continue to enrich our pet's lives.
