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

“It was a total surprise to leave BEVS without Zeke; however, we could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Halpin’s honesty regarding the effectiveness of care in Zeke’s situation was greatly appreciated, and we had plenty of time to say good-bye. This was especially helpful to our young daughter who needed to go through a more extensive grieving process. My husband just handed me a beautiful box and it took me a while to realize it was Zeke’s ashes. What a gorgeous box! We’ve always had to wander downtown Burlington for hours to find something as nice..not a fun experience. This was a very nice service!”

 

Tricia - So. Burlington

This past January Dr Amy Cordner and staff performed an ultrasound and guided needle aspiration of a deep abdominal node on my eight year old service dog, Barley. The diagnosis was lymphoma. Due to his age I opted against surgical resection of the node, electing instead to begin the CHOP protocol hoping it was the more treatable B-cell variety and not the aggressive T-cell lymphoma that had taken a previous dog from me far too young.

Barley responded to chemo almost immediately. He finished the protocol in July and we were able to enjoy a motorcycle trip to Montana together. He is something of a celebrity in the long-distance motorcycling community and hundreds of riders followed his battle with cancer. Attending the BMW Rally in Billings was therapeutic for him, and I wanted to circle around to thank all of you for the fast diagnosis that gave him the opportunity to see all of his friends again. We’re not sure how long remission will last, but we cherish every day, every ride. Barley now has over 55,000 sidecar miles under his collar.

With eternal gratitude,
