“Not long ago we had an emergency with our 13 year old Yorkshire Terrier one evening. It began with diarrhea and progressed to throwing up all night. The next morning we put him in the car and drove to our Veterinarian clinic (we had been with them for 25 years with all our pets) and waited outside their door until an employee showed up early in the morning. We called the office and told them that we were outside their door with a very critically ill dog. We gave his name and they said that they were booked solid. I told the receptionist that this was an emergency and he needed to be seen right away. She said that the doctor would not have time to see him but could admit him into the ICU with a payment up front but no guarantee he would be seen that day. You can imagine the disbelief that a critically ill dog could not be squeezed in somehow.
I hung up with her and called Gibraltar Veterinary Hospital and told them our situation, and that we were not a patient there. The receptionist said bring him right in and we will send for his records. Wow, what a concern and immediate response to a dire situation. Our dog was seen right away by Dr. Cole. They immediately did an exam, x-rays, and blood work. The sad news was that our dog was in extreme kidney failure. Dr. Cole gave us our options and we chose to put him in the ICU with overnight care. It was a holiday weekend and the hospital was closed to visitors but their deep concern and love for our precious animals allowed us to visit our dog after hours. Toby was there 3 days and each day he improved more and more. We were able to take him home the 4th day.
If it hadn’t been for the professional, loving, prompt attention by Dr. Cole and his staff, Toby may not have made it. We thank them from the bottom of our heart for the excellent care they gave.”
