Stories of Pet Saviors...

    This is the story I wanted to tell about a pet savior... Perhaps others have savior stories as well...? :m25:

    I live in a remote area... 5 hours from the nearest vet...

    We are blessed in that a local doctor (and his extremely patient wife) are compassionate people. Literally not a day goes by that he does not help someone's sick pet. There are many stories over the years of pets that he has saved in some way.

    I am one of his very best customers... He has stitched my dogs, set their bones, removed the injured eye from one dog, and put the eyeball back in for another... and put up with my "help" call at 6:30 in the morning on a holiday when my cat was hit by a truck (she recovered completely). And I don't just bring him my own critters... He once stitched up a rescued dog for me, right in the foyer of his own house and even tried to cure urinary tract blockage in a wild cat that we had to chase around my house just to catch and treat.

    I try my very best to not bother him at home, but with only about a 50% success rate... I have woken him more than once, often calling in tears and not once did he ever say: "Who is this"... or "This is my business how"?... "Bring her/him over", he always says. :y_the_best:

    I asked him why he does this... He says he knows that his patients experience great stress when their pets are injured or sick. He considers it a part of his job to care for his patients mental health as well as their physical health. (Maybe he's just a sucker for animals too) :wink:

    I thank the lord for providing this doctor, along with this big sappy heart I have for animals. [-o< How many do you think, given the good doctor's knowledge and experience would choose to regularly spend their personal time doing these good deeds... At no charge...

    What a great story. That Doctor deserves a medal of somekind. Emergency Vets here charge you $70.00 just to walk in the door of the emergency clinic.

    What a great guy :y_the_best:

    There was a woman I knew that would trap ferrel and stray cats, she would pay for FeLV/FIV testing, have them spayed, neutered and tagged then release the ferrel cats back in the area they came from and adopt the strays. She would also be out every morning and late at night to put food in the wooden or cardboard shelters she'd put out for them.

    wow, a very rare and special person indeed. you are so lucky to have someone like that near you

    Sadly most vets I have been to, just see $$$. I did have a vet once bring my cats insulin to my house because I forgot it at his office.
