Thank You, Dr. Liebelt. Dakota is so much better now, and I have you and BluePearl to thank for it. My little 10-pound long-haired miniature dachshund is playing like he never got hurt.
On March 12, 2015, shortly after 6 p.m., I had to rush Dakota to his vet after he and his sister played a little too rough and she jumped on his back. When she landed on him, he yelped, and a couple hours later, he was acting like he was hurting. It looked like he was having spasms, so I called his vet. He examined him and told me to get him to you guys. I did, and the minute I pulled up with him, I knew he was going to get the best care ever.
I walked in with my little guy upset and crying, cradling him, and told them who I was. They had already gotten the call from Dakota’s vet. We were called back within 10 minutes. The vet tech examined Dakota, and then Dr. Liebelt came in to examine him, then took him back for further tests. She came back to tell me he revealed deficits in the left pelvic limb. He was put on medication for about 10 days and was progressing well.
But, how do you keep a 2-year-old doxy from running and playing…that was not an easy task, but we did it. No stairs, running, playing (especially rough) and going outside. He went back today to his primary vet, and he gave him a clean bill of health. Dr. Williams said he was doing great and looked good. I have had dachshunds all my life and never had any one of them with a back problem. I know they are prone to it so, believe me, I will watch him and his sister when they play.
BluePearl staff were just so wonderful. They made me feel so much better and so relaxed. When we got there, the receptionists actually offered a pillow and warm blanket for Dakota to lay on. Wow, that just blew me away. I was extremely pleased and happy with the care they gave my little 2-year-old. He’s our little man, and we feel so lucky to have him.
Thank you all for such wonderful care and the concern you gave my baby. I have found an emergency vet for life. I have 3 other dogs, too: another doxie, a Jack Russell, and our rescue baby, a corgi mix that we’ve had since she was 4 weeks old and is now 12. Now If I have an emergency, I know where my babies are going: BluePearl GVS. I just can’t say thank you enough. From the bottom of our hearts, my husband and I are greatly in debt to BluePearl and Dr. Liebelt. Your warmth and sincerity meant so much to me that night.
Thank you with all my heart.
