Our sweet 7-year-old dachshund, Rodney, was unusually quiet and moving slowly on Christmas Eve and then woke on Christmas Day with a little weakness in a rear leg. Our great, longstanding vet Chip Rogers thought she had likely ruptured an intervetebral disc, and referred us to Dr. Kevin Ah at BluePearl.
We were so pleased with Dr. Ah’s immediate statement that if we needed to move to surgery even in the middle of the night he was ready to do that if it was needed to get the best possible outcome for Rodney. All the staff were sympathetic, efficient and great with our very uncomfortable pup. The speed with which we were seen, the careful explanations by Dr. Ah, the efficient way diagnostic procedures were done and surgery performed were all very reassuring.
And now, we can add that Rodney is well on the road to recovery. I can see that our main issue over the coming weeks is going to be making sure she rests as much as prescribed! We’re very grateful this facility is available.
