Letter: Animal hospital gave great care


First Posted: 1/26/2009

My family and I would like to thank the staff at Baker's Animal Hospital for their compassionate and impressive care of not one but two of our family pets over the course of six days.

I took one of our dogs to a veterinarian. After 45 minutes of waiting, we finally made it in to see the vet. After another 30 to 45 minutes, we were told they wanted to put her under to scope her and do a biopsy. I was handed a bill of what it could cost to do the procedure, and told it would fall in the surgery schedule wherever.

Devastated, we get a hold of Baker's Animal Hospital in Cridersville. They said they would wait for us to get there despite the 15- to 20-minute drive. We were seen immediately. The staff stayed more than an hour after closing to ensure she was OK.

Then we had to take our small dog in. We rushed him over and, again, he's seen immediately. They told us he was in bad shape and he needed to stay and be put on medication. Dr. Ryan took excellent care of my little guy.

Our fur babies are home and mending thanks to the loving care of the doctors and staff at Baker's.
