"I remember a time 50 years ago…I was 8 years old lying sick in bed with a fever with my parents at my side. The doorbell rang, my mom left my side and I could hear her gratefully welcoming in my doctor. Despite the fact that just like other kids I too hated and feared doctors but along with that fear was the sense of security that came from being in my own bedroom without other sick strangers around me knowing that I was in good hands.
As I raised two children that memory was simply that, a memory, one I could not duplicate for my kids. But with Dr. Amy Attas from City Pets I have been able to give this gift to my dogs.
Lucy, my 10 year old yellow Labrador, nearly lost her life as a result of mishaps from three different veterinarians. As she was approaching recovery at the Animal Medical Center I was worried about where I was going to find a vet for Lucy’s follow-up care and the future care for her and her sister Velvet, my black lab.
Just as panic was about to set in I overheard a fellow patient at the AMC talking about her vet and how she saved her dog’s life and kept her going after a diagnosis of a serious liver ailment. I knew my problems were solved. I interrupted this person’s discussion and walked out with a very important telephone number.
Just days later Dr. Attas and her assistant arrived at my door. That warm, secure, and loving feeling washed over me as if it were 50 years ago. With what seemed like the whisk of a magic wand Dr. Attas was able to get Lucy’s diabetes in complete control, give the advise that had her quickly put back the weight she had lost over the previous 4 months, and get her liver enzymes back to the normal range. I could see in Lucy’s eyes, as she laid on her bed in her home how secure and peaceful she felt that she was now well taken care of after her long ordeal of mishaps.
Just a couple of more accolades for Dr. Attas and the staff at City Pets…I am able to communicate with the doctor via email with questions to which I get an immediate response. Questions that used to send me to the vet’s office with long waits and big bills are simply answered without me ever leaving my desk with no concurrent charge. And, when Lucy had a recent set back due to a virus Dr. Attas showed up at my door early in the morning to give her fluids and to be sure all was well. That’s not only good medical care, that’s love.
