Puppy Momma Horrified
Bandit from Albuquerque

This testimony is a testament to VCA West Mesa on 2611 Coors Blvd., Ste. B in Albuquerque, NM. I want to extend a world of gratefulness to Dr. David Caffey, Bernadette, Tabitha, and Nicole for their assistance in saving my puppies life. My puppy Bandit ate dishwasher detergent pods and I did not realize to what extent or how serious of a condition that could possibly develop. He became critically ill and was rushed to the VCA West Mesa location where I was politely assisted by Dr. David Caffey before the clinic was even open. He and I pulled up at the same time. Though I had arrived before opening time, he assured me that they would get me right in. I also encountered Bernadette who saw that I was waffling around trying to get Bandit’s leash on, she politely asked if she could assist. From the time I drove in the parking lot, I was greeted with the concern and compassion during this emergency with my four legged little boy. Nicole checked me in and again, recognizing Bandit from his previous visits; she showed great concern, calmed my nerves and assured me that they would take great care of Bandit. Once I was checked in and directed to a private waiting room, I was greeted by Tabitha who is by far one of the best representatives and cheerleaders for these animals. She talks to them lovingly, she is always calm and on this day, in spite of my horror with Bandit’s condition, she was able to make me laugh. She is an awesome young lady who truly loves animals. Dr. Caffey came into the room to examine and treat Bandit. He was very kind, professional and straight forward about what they were going to do right away and what they may have to do as Bandit's condition is monitored. I did not have medical insurance and Dr. Caffey took the extra time to discuss all alternative options. Though I wanted immediate care on all levels to make him all better, Dr. Caffey was able to do the preliminaries that ruled out the need for more extensive medical treatment which spared me significantly on the medical bill. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate this VCA location and their AWESOME STAFF. I even received a follow up call to see how Bandit was doing yesterday. Though Dr. Shiri Hoshen was not on duty during this emergency, I would like to extend the warmest “Thank You” to her for her consistent (TLC) genuine care and attention for Bandit since I brought him home from the Humane Society on May 5, 2015......Thank You All So Very Much!!!! Bandit's Mommy
