A Priceless Gift
Nancy from West LA from Los Angeles

As a long time client of the world's best Veterinarian, Dr. David Bruyette, I always followed his recommendation that large dogs should begin annual Senior Wellness Exams at age 7. Every year Jett, my Standard Poodle, sailed through the exam without a problem. When Jett turned 12, I confidently dropped him off for his exam, knowing that he was the picture of health. At the end of the day, I was shocked to find out that a routine chest x-ray revealed a growing mass in his lung. Thank goodness Jett was a patient at VCA West LA, because every specialist he needed was right there on staff. An entire lobe of his lung was removed by an outstanding surgeon. Then the Oncology Department administered a prophylactic chemotherapy treatment. Jett soon regained his health and resumed his career as a Therapy Dog. The lung cancer never came back. These amazingly capable veterinarians, all of the specialists working together as a team, and an unbelievably caring hospital staff gave me a priceless gift --- a bonus year and a half with my wonderful Jett.
