When the Time Comes
Sara Harris wrote a letter to The Pilot (March 8) concerning finding a home-care vet for a sick or injured animal on a weekend.
All veterinarians are closed and one cannot move his pet from home to go to emergency. They will not attend at your home.
As a lover of my dogs, I recently experienced the very same tragedy. My 14-year-old yellow Lab, weighing 65 pounds, was deathly ill, and had been for 24 hours, not being able to move, rest or sleep, panting ferociously and occasionally crying.
I was panic-stricken. My loving pet, but I could do nothing to ease her pain, and it was a Saturday.
I desperately called everyone to no avail. Having reached my faithful dog care person, he was able to contact his veterinarian, who gave us the name of a traveling veterinarian who came to the rescue, and she and her veterinarian husband arrived.
It was our time to say goodbye. They gave her Valium to relax her, and they provided her departure to meet me again at the Rainbow Bridge.
Here is the veterinarian’s name: Lisa Kivet, (910) 992-8223. Call her; she’ll be there.
