Dr. Cary has been treating my two beloved Golden Retriever rescues, Caymus and Charlie, for close to 9 years now. She’s always been there for us when we’ve needed her…and with Caymus’s epilepsy and Charlie’s affinity for eating bees and catching live shrimp, trust me, we’ve needed her. Dr. Cary got Caymus’s phenobarbital dosage right on the FIRST try (almost unheard of) and personally calls me to discuss blood test results, etc. Beyond just being a fantastic vet though, Dr. Cary is also a caring and compassionate woman who’s earned my respect ten times over.
Here’s just a few reasons why Dr. Cary is my favorite vet:
(1) When Caymus had a particularly bad seizure 5 minutes before I was due to leave for court and I was a worried mommy who called her vet’s office to see what to do, Dr. Cary insisted that I drop Caymus off to spend the day with her so that I wouldn’t have to worry about leaving Caymus home alone all day. When I went to pick Caymus up at the end of a long day at trial, exhausted and worried sick, Dr. Cary smiled as she came into the room and cheerfully told me that Caymus spent the day by her side and that she was absolutely fine – then Dr. Cary refused to charge me for Caymus’s day as her intern… Wow. She must have seen the relief in my eyes and she knew how much it meant to me.
(2) When Caymus had emergency surgery at GVS a few years ago on Christmas Eve, Dr. Cary was the FIRST person to call me on Christmas morning to see how Caymus and I were doing (GVS had faxed her Caymus’s records). Orlando was out of town and I was alone that Christmas, so Dr. Cary’s call meant the world to me. She took time away from her family and friends on Christmas morning just to check on us, even though she wasn’t even treating Caymus (the surgery required a hospital with more equipment and monitoring).
In sum, Dr. Cary is an amazing veterinarian who sincerely cares about her patients and who takes the time to listen to worried mommies (and daddies) too. I honestly believe that she loves my 13 year old Golden almost as much as me and I trust her with Caymus’s life – let’s face it, ya’ll know that’s honestly the best endorsement I could give to a veterinarian or a friend.
Please help me make Dr. Cary’s new practice a smashing success!!! We’ll see you at Apex!
