Emergency pet care

In response to James Ferrier’s letter dated Oct. 22, I, too, had a situation where I needed an emergency vet.

Our 13-year-old cat’s kidneys were failing. She was under the care of our wonder vets but needed immediate attention on New Year’s Day of this year. Our vets’ office told us in advance that they weren’t available for emergencies, and that if one arose, we had to take our cat to Loomis Basin in Loomis.

Fortunately, two friends of ours told us that Dr. Avery, owner of For the Love of Pets, Inc., may be available.

Sure enough, Dr. Avery took care of our cat. He was very kind and competent. I was happy to pay his emergency fee.

Pet owners, I urge you to call this vet, and if he still takes emergency calls, put his name and number with your other emergency numbers.

I understand there may have been vets on rotated emergency calls in the past. It would be wonderful if they did so again.

Mr. Ferrier, I am very sorry for your loss.
