To BEVS, Especially Dr. Harnett, Katie & Michelle,

Thank you so much to everyone at BEVS, especially Dr. Harnett for providing us with guidance around Bruschi’s new and difficult new diagnoses, Katie for treating Bruschi and interacting with him the same way we do and understanding his huskyisms and Michelle for saving his life when he was in crisis, without you he wouldn’t be here today.  Everyone at BEVS was so helpful and supportive and was patient with the numerous daily phone [calls] we made to check-in on Bruschi and ask a million questions.  Also, thank you for continuing to be a support even recently, while home, when we weren’t sure about his symptoms and how to best treat him.  His diagnoses aren’t easy but with all the support and information we’ve been given we feel more confident in our ability to care for him and provide him with the best quality of life possible, especially now that we got a positive test result for MG.  We couldn’t be happier with the level of care he received at BEVS and if we have any serious issues in the future we won’t think twice about where to take our dogs.

Thank you again from all of us, 

Christine, Eric, Bruschi  and Layla

Thank you more than words can say. Moe is mostly back to his normal self. We know we nearly lost him this weekend, and couldn’t be more grateful to you for caring for him when we couldn’t. Picture is from this morning during our annual 1st day of school photos.  This is his best smile.

We brought our black lab Waylon in this past Sunday evening for urgent care.  We have had previous experiences with your facility and staff, in person and telephonically, and have always received outstanding care. This past visit was nothing but awesome as well. We want to thank you for providing Waylon, and us, with professional, compassionate, wonderful care.  As a healthcare professional I feel I am a fairly good judge of quality healthcare. I continue to be impressed by your staff and facility.

Thank you again! Waylon is feeling much better and has pretty much returned to baseline!

Keep up the wonderful work!

Steven, Carol, and Waylon Palmer
