Gift from veterinarian

Tonight my little 7-pound ChiWeenie, Daisy, started choking on something and having a hard time breathing. My husband and I planned on rushing her to Dr. Schneider at Millwood Animal Clinic seven miles away but we had no time to waste as she was choking and loosing her breath. We were near All Creatures Veterinary Clinic on Dishman Mica so we pulled in and hurried her inside.

Without hesitation, two ladies went into high gear, one taking Daisy to the back and one getting information on Daisy. We were not their customer but they didn’t hesitate to help. Within minutes we were called to the back to meet Dr. Jewett, who had successfully removed a piece of a rubber ball.

We were giving a bill marked “zero due” and wished a Merry Christmas. I tried to pay and was met with a friendly smile and again wished a Merry Christmas. I left crying happy tears. Daisy was ok and the spirit of Christmas was alive. Thank you Dr. Jewett, Carla and Brittney at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic for saving little Daisy. Merry Christmas.
