Letter: Big Thanks To Palms West Veterinary Hospital

We recently lost our beloved dog, Sophie. The combination of old age and genetic predisposition brought to an end five wonderful years of unconditional love. She was a rescue with health problems when we first got her, and had it not been for the knowledge, caring and medical expertise of the doctors and support staff at the Palms West Veterinary Hospital, we likely would not have had her as long as we did.

From Dr. Ira Grossman who oversaw her care all the time, especially when we had to be out of town, to Dr. Spillane who treated her on a number of occasions to Dr. McLaughlin, who was by her side on her final journey, the love and concern and best treatments possible were there for Sophie. Ashley, her second mom, was always there to administer medicines, love her and hug her when we were out of town (and who I suspect loved her almost as much as we did). The support staff at the desk, especially Debbie, was always quick to respond to our needs, sometimes even in the middle of the night, and got us in to see the doctors as quickly as possible.

The Palms West Veterinary Hospital is a caring family with the best medical expertise for our four-legged family members who depend on us. To all of you and many others behind the scene, we say thank you and, from afar, Sophie says it, too!
