Lui B, a 14 year old schnauzer, has a family vet practice that she sees regularly for check-ups and preventative care. Her trusted family veterinarian is generally the first place she goes when she doesn’t feel well.
This past weekend, Lui B got very sick. She was vomiting, not eating, and had severe abdominal pain. Her mom took her to her family veterinarian, and together they decided that she should come to VSH for specialized treatment and intensive care. Her family veterinarian, who has sent patients to VSH in the past, promptly emailed over Lui B’s medical history, while her mom brought her in to VSH. Mom even called in advance, just to let us know she was coming and what time she might arrive, so that our team could be ready.
