I just wanted to send you a note thanking you for taking such good care of our 11 yellow lab puppies. All are doing quite well! Gus and Bonnie have just gone to their new homes and others are following soon. It is quite amazing, you would never know they were sick! So thanks!! on my trip to your clinic that day I was not hopeful for such a great outcome! Thanks again!

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

Dr. Josie Mallinckrodt,

We cannot thank you enough for helping us with Lizzie, from her care after the diagnosis to assisting her to a peaceful heaven. The decision was difficult, but now we know she is with her litter mate-brother, Linus and our Golden Denali who she loved dearly. We feel an enormous loss & know it will take time to adjust to her absence. The card and kind words you articulated so well, spoke to exactly what she was and that was gentle and loving. Your kindness of coming to our home and being here to help all of us, speaks volumes to your professionalism, kindness and warm heart. BEVS is lucky to have you as is the community you serve. Photos, videos and memories may be all that’s left, but she entered our lives with grace and exited with the same grace. Thank you for being here for this, your act of kindness with never be forgotten, Josie. We have comfort knowing that you are here in Vermont and deliver care for animals with such love & compassion, and we are thankful for that.

Fondly, Aaron, Larry, Daisy & Bleu
