Jasmine was feeling really poorly last couple days. Our rush visit to her vet reminded me yet again how blessed we were to have found him.
I have already written a number of articles on the importance of finding a great vet for your dog. But I don't think I can say it enough. It can really make a world of a difference. I know, because we have experienced it.
About a year and a half ago, with all Jasmine's health issues piling up and no viable diagnosis in sight I said then that what we needed was a dog House (see the link if you don't know the show).
By a complicated set of events so it happened that we actually did find one. Finding him was like entering a whole different world.
Not only that he is very smart, but he really cares about his patients. Not only that he knows all there is to know, but he is always searching for new and better treatments. He puts in the time, the care and the effort it takes, and then some more. He had diagnosed problems that went by our previous vets for years. He takes symptoms seriously. He listens to what we have to say. He spends the time to answer all our questions and discuss things with us. He will not stop until he has done everything and anything possible to make his patients' lives better.
Time and time again we are amazed and humbled by him. I seriously doubt there is another. But if there is, you owe it to your dog to find him. If you don't know whether you have found one, trust me, you haven't. Because when you do, you KNOW.
Thank you and thank you again for being who you are, and putting up with us, our dear dog House DVM!
