They were 14 years old at the time and Tasha was known as the 'terrible twin' by most vets. But these vets and their wonderful staff took excellent care of my babies, and when Phoebe was diagnosed with CRF in 2005, they went far beyond that in helping me deal with it. They taught me how to do fluids at home, and tolerated my anxious phone calls when Phoebe was hospitalized. When the end came, I had Phoebe's favorite vet there, and her favorite tech. They stayed with me afterwards even though it was Saturday morning and very busy. They always gave me options without regard to cost and were honest with me about possibilities for life. So naturally when I adopted three more from our local shelter, back I went.

She also initiates and returns phone calls and emails with clients. I've sent her a number of research articles on interesting aspects of veterinary interest (e.g., the recently started "rabies challenge study" to determine the real efficacy and need for boosters for rabies vaccinations). She always replies and offers her take on the things I send her. She understands why I do not vaccinate my cats any more (most are old and have chronic ailments and compromised immune systems), and accepts that. As you know, many vets resent clients who have, and exercise, their lay knowledge of things veterinary, and who take their roles as pet parents and as their animals' advocates seriously ...

When one type supplement was not easy to administer she helped me find alternate ways to give the supplement so&nbsp; that Otis was not at all stressed.&nbsp; She helped me procure a blood pressure monitor to check his blood pressure daily, at home.&nbsp; When Otis's heart began having difficulty handling the fluids that had kept him so very happy for years, Dr. Dugan was so very gentle with Otis that he allowed her to X-ray him frequently, as tried to find an amount of fluid that would keep his kidneys happy, while not overtaxing his heart.&nbsp;&nbsp; Otis lived to be 19 years old.&nbsp; I miss him very, very much, but I know he had the very best, most expert and most caring veterinary care possible.&nbsp; I would recommend Dr. Dugan with absolutely no reservations.

She has an ongoing consulting relationship with the vet school at Washington State University, is proactive in keeping up with new research and treatments, and not only respects my input as a pet owner but has actively followed up on information I found in my own research. She understands the limits of feline cooperation and helped with alternatives when needed.&nbsp; Quality of life and comfort are embedded in her actions. When the time came, she provided caring guidance in determining when further intervention for Mefed's HCM would have been for my benefit rather than Mefed's. She is providing the same high standard of care for my cat Sidana, now 17, who was diagnosed with CRF nearly five years ago.

When my Baby was dxd with CRF, I had never even heard of it. He explained it to me and told me that it was not a death sentence and that our cats are living longer and longer with the disease. He showed me how to give subqs also. I always go in there with a list of questions and he always answers every one of them and never tries to rush me out of there. I would recommends him to anyone.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; 12/01/07 - <a href="mailto:christinamgallert@yahoo.com">Chirstina Gallert</a></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;" align="center"> <hr align="center" size="2" width="100%"> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><a name="Canada"></a>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: center;" align="center">&nbsp;</p> <div align="center"> <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%;" border="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="padding: 0.75pt; width: 35%;" valign="top" width="35%"> <p class="MsoNormal"><b><i><span style="font-size: 18pt;">Canada</span></i></b></p> </td> <td style="padding: 0.75pt;" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: right;" align="right"><a href="#top"><span style="text-decoration: none;"><img src="backto.gif" border="0" height="24" width="117"></span></a></p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td style="padding: 0.75pt;" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><br> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Vancouver Animal Wellness Hospital <br> (formerly The Adored Beast)&nbsp; <br> 105 Broadway E <br> Vancouver, BC V5T 1W1&nbsp;&nbsp; <a href="http://mapq.st/KrCdD2" target="_blank">Map</a> <br> Tel: 604-738-4664&nbsp; <br> Fax: 604-738-4694&nbsp; <br> <a href="mailto:info@vancouveranimalwellness.com">info@vancouveranimalwellness.com</a> <br> <a href="http://www.vancouveranimalwellness.com/" target="_blank">http://www.vancouveranimalwellness.com/</a></p> </td> <td style="padding: 0.75pt;" valign="top"> <p class="MsoNormal"><br> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">I'd like to recommend the Veterinary Clinic where I've been taking my cat Mishka for treatment of Kidney Disease and Hyperthyroidism.&nbsp; I first brought her to this clinic last fall for a checkup and for treatment of arthritis.&nbsp; There is not one specific vet at this clinic that I can recommend as they've all collaborated together in her treatment.&nbsp;&nbsp; They have a full list of trained staff and technicians who as a whole, offer, homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, full service surgery, physiotherapy / rehabilitation, hydrotherapy, behaviorist, conventional medicine, grief counseling, and overnight monitoring.&nbsp; My cat is an indoor cat, and cannot stand being brought to the vet.&nbsp; In the past, once she came home from a vet visit, she'd hide for hours under the bed.&nbsp; Since I started taking her to this clinic, she comes home and reacts like she never even left the house.&nbsp;&nbsp; It's a calm, loving environment for animals.&nbsp; They are very compassionate, patient, understanding and kind.&nbsp; They have even taken the time to teach me how to do daily sub-q's at home and supervised my attempts.
