I so wish I could clone him... He is just so into what he does and the passion is contagious.

    Always remember the good times. Also if in need of a vet remember who not to turn to.

    The surgeon & her assistant followed me to the ER… they were both crying along w/me as I was laying over Winston's body. She was visibly upset, and she did call me the very next day… but I wasn't ready to talk to her at that point, I was still in shock. The emergency vet at the ER was amazing… put me & Winston in a private room (they laid him on a blanket on this leather couch right next to me which shocked me really… LOL) offered to make phone calls for me, and really did NOT want me driving by myself for the hour ride home. I remember watching several white boxes leaving the clinic that night, and I said to her "I don't really know how you can do this job" and she said to me… "Well if I can just save at least one of them then it was worth it…". I agreed, and honestly if this girl was 23 years old I would of been surprised… She showed me more compassion that the other vets I had been dealing with.

    Neither one of you two have to say anything to me… I know where your heart lies, and I LOVE you both for it!!! You both are extremely loving & supportive to everyone on here NOT just me…

    Shame on both those vets for not at least calling. Yes, imo, it speaks volume. It's funny how life is, we mourn and then we smile when we look at the ones we love who have passed, weather it be 2 paws or 4 paws. Big hugs to you Tracey.

    Not a day goes by where I have not thought of Winston and you, Tracey. You are very dear to me, to many of us here, and Winston was "our" boy too. Anyways, much love to you and your family.

    It is never easy losing a loved one, especially as young as he was. He was a beautiful boy. I can't believe the vet didn't send a card or anything. So unthoughtful of them. Guess it's just business and money to them. He will forever be in your heart.

But the emergency clinic sent a letter of what happened to him & the surgeon so I KNOW that he is aware of what happened. He was also our neighbor when we lived at our old house… he knows my kids, and our entire family. He didn't do the surgery, he referred me to VOS… I understand that vets deal w/death daily, and maybe you become normalized to it. BUT we WERE above board clients at that clinic… sorry, I think that as a vet you should acknowledge some kind of humanity in this type of circumstance.
    I agree with you Tracey.
