Boca Raton Veterinarians Calusa Veterinary Center and Me
As a pet owner and lover, I am always concerned, like anyone else, where to take my animals. After all, they're part of the family, like my kids. I worry, do the vets know what they're doing? Will they take good care of Buttons and Gracie? Treat them well? Play with them when they board?
After moving to Boca Raton 15 years ago and trying a few vets, I came upon Dr. Andy Turkell and Dr. Anthony Krawitz of Calusa Veterinary Center. At this time, I was mother to Coco, a special-needs papillon who I had rescued before we left NY, and Sandy a mixed breed.
Through the combined efforts of Drs Krawitz and Turkell and myself, Coco lived to be 13. An amazing feat to anyone who knew her! But I shared a special bond with Coco because I was her caretaker. She depended on me, not just for food and water, but for meds and for help and understanding each step of her journey. It was a journey I wouldn't have traded for gold. It was hard work, but the rewards were rich. It is due to Coco that I fell in love with the papillon breed and have made life-long friends in the world of papillons.
Time has passed. We've lost Sandy as well to the Rainbow Bridge. Never one to have an empty home, I missed those smiling faces, the barking at the door - you pet owners know what I mean. Along came Buttons and then Gracie. A full house once again and a full heart.
And always back to Calusa Veterinary and Drs. Turkell and Krawitz. They are wonderful vets practicing both regular and homeopathic medicine, and their facility is first rate. They have state-of-the-art equipment and are current on the latest updates in the field of veterinary medicine. I also board my dogs here, and they are kind enough to put up with my constant calls. Mothers are supposed to worry, right? That's our given right!
Why am I writing this blog? I am sitting here waiting for Gracie's test results, writing this on my Blackberry. She has been vomiting blood. I'm a wreck! Gracie weighs a whopping 5.9 lbs! My husband called to say Buttons is sitting at my front door and alternately barking and crying. Is it any wonder I'm a wreck?
Just got the results. They think Gracie has pancreatitis. Took a couple of hours, but am sure glad I have access to these great veterinarians. Now, I can be a nervous wreck until she gets better. Oh, the life of a mother...
