It is never easy as pet parents to make the decision to let our babies go. My family and I live in Austin, TX full time but come to Long Beach for the summers. We brought our elderly dog with us, understanding that this would probably be her last trip. On Thursday, we made the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our sweet Ollie. Dr. Pellegrini, the veterinary technicians, nurses, and front office staff were compassionate and overwhelmingly kind. The supportive and caring nature of everyone involved made for a comforting space to make a tough decision. Thank you.
Three and a half years ago our previous Vet diagnosed our then 15 year old Rat Terrier, "Mary Moon", with kidney failure and recommended leaving her with them for the weekend. The $750 treatment yielded results for a couple of weeks, and then they recommended repeating the subcutaneous fluid hydration for another weekend, $550 this time. I was having a casual conversation with Lisa D. about putting Mary Moon to sleep since $1300 could go a long way in rescuing some other dog that needed care, when she recommended All Creatures, where she works. I have had dogs, cats and birds for sixty years and I have never met a more caring and loving group of people than those in the Long Beach facility. Under their care MM lived to 18+1/2 years old until today. What is it worth to have your companion for another three and a half years? Priceless! 3.5 years of that cute little face trading kisses for cookies, greeting every arrival as though the most important person in the world just came home. Without exception, each of the people from the Receptionists, to the Manager, to the Vet Techs, to the Vets have obviously found their calling. They perform compassionately in their calling, since it would be a complete understatement to say "job". This place is staffed with the sort of Angels that were responsible for keeping our family together for another few years. You should bring your furry or feathered family here too. The love they show for your pets will rival your own. No doubt about it. -Diane M.
