We took our 14 year old Bassett, Max, to Animal Emergency last week in respiratory distress. He was diagnosed with partial laryngeal paralysis and had surgery the next day to tie open his left vocal cord. We took him home the following day and he is doing great–breathing normally, more energy. Max received excellent care and we were treated with respect and kept informed the entire time. We feel very fortunate to have such a highly competent and compassionate hospital for emergencies and special needs for our animals. Thank you all so much!
