This is Fanny and me. We, or I guess she really, are now in the fourth week after her CCL operation almost to the day that her other knee was operated on a year ago. Both by the wonderful, magical, and caring Dr. Haroush. Last year, pre-pandemic, with a looming scare, a big price tag and months of rehab in front of us, Dr. Haroush, Jose and the rest of this magnificent team treated us immediately, helped us in more way we could count all with the kindest and most knowledgeable of treatments. Fanny felt like it was another home and we felt like we were welcome to be as neurotic as we could be about our dog. She healed up quickly and then like clockwork which Dr. Haroush said might happen, it did again, the other knee. Now it was even worse with the Pandemic in full swing, money really tight, time tighter, it felt so huge and totally overwhelming. Did Dr. Haroush come to the rescue? He certainly did. Again, she is healing nicely, we are healing along with her and I would never send her to another vet as long as she lives. Dr. Haroush and team are spectacular in their wisdom and care. Along with treating Fanny it was like he was treating me for all the insanity we are all feeling right now. Everyday and beyond the care was present. And most of all Fanny feels loved and taken care of. What more could you ask for. I wish it was all this simple.

Why do you need a second opinion on your pet’s health? Simply put, second opinions save lives. Unfortunately, we live in a world where many pets are misdiagnosed – for better or for worse. At Animal Health Care, we strive to provide you with a calculated second look regarding your loved ones.
Imagine being told that your pet is severely ill and should be put down immediately. Now, visualize making an appointment for a second opinion elsewhere and finding out your companion’s illness is minor and completely curable. We hear stories like this regularly.
Play it safe. Always seek an alternative diagnosis exam when it comes to the health and happiness of your pet. Contact us today to schedule your second opinion appointment.
