Our Clients Love Us!
Our family in forever grateful to the Capitola Vet hospital for their care of our 16 year old dog, Smokey. They were so kind to us when our family showed up to say goodbye to Smokey. She was our best friend and the staff treated Smokey (and us) with care and kindness. Thank you so much for your kind hearts and understanding during this family crisis. You made an unbearable situation understandable and you treated us like family.
man, dr. may is a NICE guy. took my *angel* 13 y/o bassett boo-boo in for what we knew was some sort of end-of-life issue. dr. may was extremely distressed to share a dreaded lymphoma diagnosis. but due to his care, concern & treatment, we've gotten more time w/ boo to accept the eventual end of his life and made peace. thank you boo-boo for all the joy you brought to my life and thank you dr. may for giving me the time to let him go with gratitude instead of pain. *Update* - boo-boo has passed. unfortunately, it was during hours when dr. may's practice was closed, so we had to go to the emergency vet hospital. but dr. may's office still followed up with us, reaching out to let us know they care and sending resources for how to deal with the loss of a pet. i understand business and know capitola vet clinic would like our business when we add a new dog to our family, but there is not a nicer way he could have done it and i am thoroughly convinced that while, sure, dr. may cares for his business, he also truly cares for the pets he treats and their owners. i will NOT go anywhere else for the care of a pet!
