Dear Dr. Aziz and staff,I want to thank you for coming to our farm today. Your compassion is duly noted and I will be eternally grateful. I don’t know you nor do you know me or my dog but through conversation with your staff, I realized that you are fellow dog whisperers.In the orchard by our house, rest 5 dogs and Roxanne age 15 will be joining them today. I would like to mention that they wore no collars, were tethered to no leash, were contained to no fenced yards, were never hit or yelled at or denied a couch or love seat. They had no pedigree.They were all chosen by birth in winter months and found in SPCA or Human Societies. Most were born in the month of November and came home to me in January. I used the cold and the snow to train. I would put on my winter gear, bring the puppies outside and start walking towards the barn, talking with them all the way. They stayed right in step with me every time, every day, every year. The warmth of the barn and greenhouses were highlighted by many employees waiting to pet, play, socialize.During the years they rode shotgun in the big farm truck during peach harvest; they helped with the spring greenhouse crops; they supervised many barbecues, pool parties and kid’s sleepovers. They attended the weddings and celebrations, funerals and illnesses of many family members. Each dog has their own set of stories.This dog, Roxanne was the sweetest. Her story line is probably the dearest to me as it bridged through the loss of parents, the double cancer diagnosis of my husband and the journey of my only son through childhood. This is the dog that remembers the touch of my father, the ultimate dog whisperer, and my child, who is on his own journey. Both men were blessed with a worldly intelligence and photographic memory. So if I forget the day to day wonder of Roxanne, I will be reminded by my son and prodded by my heart. The heart always remembers.And to this, I thank you once more for your kindness. I like to think that most people are built with kindness. Kindness is never overrated and walks miles with saddened hearts.Your kindness for this dog you didn’t know, this family that will miss her deeply, will never be forgotten.
I cannot express the gratitude I have for Dr. Aziz and his team at the “dogandcatclinic2015”.
We have 2 pomaranians, both of poor health. Lately our Cotton has put us through the ringer and Dr. Aziz is always ready to assist day or night.
Our latest crisis was early last week. I called and got the answering machine. Knowing the clinic was open til 9, I raced down the highway with Cotton in
my arms. He was shaking, couldn’t walk, I thought he was having a stroke or heart attack.
Upon arriving at the clinic I ran in the door and just yelled “Dr. Aziz help!!”, he came running, took us in immediately, assessed our furbaby and realized he
was in a lot of pain.
Dr. Aziz took over 1 1/4 hours working with us. It took 3 pain shots to help our boy, but Dr. Aziz got him through to discover he had a gastrol intestinal infection.
Antibiotics were given. A new diet plan (food to be ordered, in the meantime boiled chicken breast and rice only)
It didn’t stop there. Dr. Aziz phones once or twice when a animal is in crisis to be sure we are following the medication, the food protocol and most importantly
he wants to know how our furbabies are holding up.
He always answers my questions. He researches, he does not make quick judgements, he doesn’t believe in shoving medication into a animal unless need be, he, as I do believes in natural remedies when at all possible.
Our Cotton is a very timid pomaranian, he’s been through a lot with a collapsed trachea, thyroid issue’s, anxiety troubles and now the tummy trouble. Through all
of this Dr. Aziz has been here for us day or night. Today I had to call as Cotton is bound up, he mixed up a laxative and it was ready for me to pick up.
Our Mariah is aging, he’s on top of me to get her walking 15 mins. at a time, keep her food intake down (she’s a bit plump).
Dr. Aziz and his staff care for animals. Heck Amanda (receptionist) brings her cat to work with her. Priceless!!!
I don’t know what more to say, other than the rates for vet fees are very reasonable.
I had to recommend Dr. Aziz to my sister, she had to put her furbaby Suzie of 14 years down and Dr. Aziz did so and made her feel she did the right thing. It was a traumatizing time for my sister, her husband and 2 young girls, but Dr. Aziz and staff did everything with dignity and allowed them their time with Suzie to say goodbye.
This is a vet you can count on day or night. He has a 24 hour answering service, does house calls, emergency calls. When your pet is hurting this is the Dr. to call. He will get to you as soon as possible or get you into his office asap. His staff understands when a person calls in anguish as their pet is not well. They make room for you.
Thank you Dr. Aziz, Amanda and the rest of the team at “dogandcatclinic2015”, i hope you put this on your testimonial site. People need to see how much you’ve done for us.
Respectfully and gratefully
Colleen and Allan Bunston
