I read the May 13 letter from Christine Bubb about WestVet Emergency and Specialty Center. I want to add to her praise of this excellent service.
A few weeks ago my cat Flame was suffering from bloody noses and then an eye bleed. My vet said it was probably a nasal tumor, but I could take him to WestVet for a CT scan. As it turned out, after he was at WestVet awaiting the scan, he took a turn for the worse. After I consulted with the vets about the severity of his condition, I decided to have him euthanized.
Recently I received a letter from the dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri, sympathizing with me and saying that they had received a donation to their Pet Memorial Program at the university in Flame’s honor from the vet who had seen him, Dr. Ochoa of WestVet. I was extremely touched by this thoughtful and completely unexpected tribute, and am very grateful to her.
At WestVet all the staff is very kind and sympathetic. I, too, am thankful that they are there for emergencies and for the more complicated diagnostics of our beloved pets.
