The Magic Shot

When I was a boy, I used to love taking sick animals to the vet. Regardless of the problem, species, or breed, the veterinarian would examine the animal, give it a shot, send us home with pills. More often then not, the animal would get better! At seven years of age, I honestly believed that that shot and those pills were magic cure alls. The veterinarian was even better then Santa Claus, because you could get their magic cure whenever you need them just by going to their office.

I don't think that I was ever more disappointed then when I learned that that shot was penicillin and the pills were antibiotics. The “magic cure all” really only worked against infections. Today, some people still believe, that a veterinarian can diagnosis any condition just by “looking at” the animal and treat any condition with a “magic” shot and some pills.

Simply put, veterinarians know a lot more and have better medications today, then they did 40 years ago. Digital X-rays and in house CBC and chem screen results all available to us in less then a couple hours, are diagnostic tools that simply weren't available to any veterinarian 40 years ago. This has made us much better at diagnosing and treating just about any sick animal.  Try our get to know us special, Try our Get to Know Us special, to check your animals health and save some money to boot.

Knowing that Crush was in such good, caring, and professional hands meant so much to us. The extent of your care and kindness during Crush's surgery went far beyond what we have experienced with other family vets. Your sincerity made us feel very comfortable and very easy to trust you, and we know Crush felt the same way. Thank you for staying with her after her surgery and for all the love and kindness you showed during Crush's stay and healing at the hospital!
