Dear Team Veterinary Emergency Service,

Sir Webley Bunting here, would like to Thank You All, for the care you have given him July 14th. He is well on his way to recovery from pneumonia.  Today he was able to go on his daily walk  twice, of 1/2 mile path trail and felt like eating blackberries on his way back to the house.

Thank you, Emergency Team, for your 24/7 care of him.

Mr. & Mrs. Irvin Bunting

My husband Jeff & I wanted to express our sincere thanks for the kindness and excellent care you gave to our cat Izik (and us!) Wednesday night.  Your communications about what was happening and possible scenarios (medically and financially) were provided with clarity and sensitivity.  Extra special thanks to Lupe, Justa, and Dr. Hecimovich, and the woman at the front desk yesterday when I picked up his body.  As sad as we were to not be able to be there for his last few minutes, we know he was surrounded by warm and caring people.

To Everyone at BEVS,

Debbie and I thank you all for the care you provided Buddy and also for the love you gave him.  Over the course of three years,  my “Little Boy” received care there he had some pretty rough times.  But, he always was made as comfortable as he could be and that goes for me as well.  We also want to thank you for the floral arrangement  seen in the picture at left.  Bud died in my arms right after giving me puppy kisses.
