Yesterday, we got to say goodbye and good luck to our good buddy #dagwood as he was officially discharged from the hospital. Lots of emotions happening as we get to see this dog comfortably walk across the parking lot to his van.
In emergency veterinary medicine, you rarely have a patient in the hospital for more than 3 or 4 days. Even for a stay that short, you build a bit of an emotional attachment to a patient. Dagwood was with us for over 2 weeks. It's no surprise that staff members had tears of joy in their eyes as he was discharged.
A big thank you to @briannamadia and @keithmadia for trusting us with Dagwood's care and for pushing through these last few weeks.
Another thank you to the staff @bend_animal_emergency for making all of this possible. I'm proud to work with so many excellent and skilled veterinary professionals.

Additionally, thank you to all those around the world that were flooding the skies (and our break room) with positive vibes (and food), respectively.

And finally... pet insurance can make a world of difference in the turnout of a pet's serious medical condition. Veterinary care is hindered by the cost of advanced medicine. We use all the same medical supplies as a human hospital, but charge a small fraction of what they do. Financial limitations are usually a non issue when pet insurance is involved, often for less than the cost of a cell phone bill per month. Anyone who thinks they "wouldn't put an animal through this" is vastly underestimating our ability as veterinarians to provide comfort and control pain. We can treat your pets disease. We can heal your pets condition. Just give us the chance, and get pet insurance so finances aren't a deciding factor if the time comes when you need us.

  • @carolinecallery 4 November, 2018

    Thank you! Dagwood and you have inspired me to get pet insurance for my pup! ❤️ I hope I will never have to use it but glad I now have it.

  • @bsaz 3 November, 2018

    I was under the impression that if you didn’t get pet insurance while your dog is a pup, you can’t get it. We just went though an expensive hip surgery on our 9 year old Yorkie. Was I misinformed?

  • @knittingk2tog 2 November, 2018

    Thank you for saving Dags and giving him another chance at life! ❤️

  • @susanpewitt9044 2 November, 2018

    Thank you for taking care of Dagwood. Thank you also for recommending pet insurance. It was wise advice.

  • @iiidogfarm 2 November, 2018

    Thank you for all that you do! ❤️

  • @hotleggz4u 2 November, 2018

    😘 Congrats to Dagwood! He did it. I knew he would pull through this because he had great care, loving parents and sister. But most of all he has the largest family ever!!! So many people coming together to pray, sending food, gifts and words of encouragement. I'm truly amazed about what the power of love and prayers can do. I love this little family so much. Congratulations to all of you. I look forward to seeing Dagwood and Bucket wild and free again. 💖XO

  • @lookslikeadog 2 November, 2018

    What pet insurance do you recommend! I thought they were kind of scammy.

  • @megameglet 2 November, 2018

    💗💕💗🐶 Having health insurance for our pets has helped more than once with very scary, life threatening situations. Thank you for all you do!

    Pet insurance could not be more essential. I recently went through a traumatic injury with my pup - spinal fracture and resulting back end paralysis - and we’ve spent more than $25,000 so far with surgery and rehabilitation, which could continue for a long time yet. She is recovering but it’s been a long upsetting and expensive ordeal. Big thank you to @petplanpetinsurance. Our co-pay is 10 per cent. What I like most about them is the ability to tailor your plan (deductible, coverage, co-pay amounts) to come up with a price and package that fits. I don’t know where we’d be without them. Best money I spend. I’d never be without it.

  • @stevezombie13 2 November, 2018

    Thank you for doing what you do. You help a lot of animals and their pet parents. Do you recommend a certain type/company for insurance ? Something happening to one of my pups is my worst nightmare.

  • @kelfordham 2 November, 2018

    ❤️👍🏽

  • @kayla.r.bryson 2 November, 2018

    Yes, pet insurance is SO IMPORTANT! I learned that the hard way after spending $6000 out of pocket on my precious pup, Orion, who got sick and died very suddenly. Once I decided to bring home a new dog a year later, I got insurance on him immediately. It has more than paid for itself by now because he's so accident prone. Hahaha. Thank you for the amazing work you do, and thank you for offering your insights! ❤️

  • @findingsimba_ft.gato 2 November, 2018

    Sorry if I am repeating a question, but are there any pet insurances you recommend? I'd love to get some, but I only ever hear bad reviews. Thanks!!
