Nance and I want to thank you all for the kindness and the expert care you extended to our beloved 12-year-old Golden Retriever, Tuck, on April 29. None of us expected this to be his last day, but it was so. We have no doubt that we made the right decision, especially for him, a decision guided by direct and clear communication from the operating room during surgery. From the moment we entered BEVS, we were treated beautifully, with care and respect. Everyone on your staff was flawless – including Dr. Emily Picciotto and Helia Zamprogno, Katie Fitzpatrick, James Mackey, and everyone else we dealt with at what unexpectedly turned into a very, very difficult situation. You all were, for want of a better term, angels of mercy when we needed angels. The sadness we feel remains as does out gratitude for guiding us through those difficult moments.

Thank you so much,

Tyrone and Nancy

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

Dear Dr. Harnett and Dr. Mallinckrodt:

Russell and I can’t thank you enough for giving our Pipsqueak more time with us.  He recovered well and is like his old self again, jumping, running, playing and being his little spunky self.  Because of the wonderful care you and your staff gave him, we are cherishing every day with him.  Bringing him to your hospital was the best decision we could have made.  We wish you Happy Holidays from the bottom of our hearts.

Russell & Sheila
