Gypsy Rose is doing well following your expert treatment on Sunday evening. Yesterday her drain tube was removed by Dr. Carroll at Chelsea Animal Hospital and her recovery appears normal at this point in time. Her sutures are scheduled to be removed on Feb. 18 at 3 PM. Bill and I are so very appreciative of your skills and thoughtful care. Bill found the stick, complete with Gypsy Rose’s fur, in two pieces and it looks like all of the parts were on the ground. Thanks Dr. Banks for your thorough exploratory work. We are grateful that surgery was uncomplicated. Vermont communities are fortunate to have BEVS. Sincerely,

Bill and Cheryl and especially Gypsy Rose and her buddy Tiger Lily

Thank you to the whole team who took care of Ellie!

Just a note to let you know that “Puppy Trenkle” (we hadn’t even had him long enough to name him) is recovering very well from Parvo this week since his discharge from BEVS last Tuesday.  Every day he improves with his appetite, energy, playfulness and stools.  We don’t think he’s completely normal yet, but he continues to make forward progress.  He really likes to bite noses and ears, his appetite is getting really good, he likes to be with his people, that is, if he’s not with his people, he throws quite the tantrum!  He loves playing with his toys and loves to snuggle after a good meal.  And he finally has a name!!  Named after the fearless and noble Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, I introduce to you, “Obi”.  Attached are a few pictures.  I’ve said it before but have to say it again.  We would not be with our beloved Obi if it weren’t for your hard work, care, dedication and love.  A million thanks to all of you.

Warm regards,

Zoey Trenkle and Christy Wigant
