Dr Samuel and her staff are simply the best. Our dog, Neo, was severely abused as a puppy. The story follows if you want to see what a special guy he is.  When we arrived at Dr Samuel’s office we were met by her fabulous staff. Neo was very nervous and afraid. I told them that he did not like to be picked up and that he was so afraid that I was not sure if he bite them or not. We were put in a room and Dr. Samuel soon arrived. She introduced herself and then immediately sat down on the floor with Neo. She stroked him and spoke softly. I almost cried knowing that I had brought him to the right place. They managed to check his eyes and gave him emergency eye drops. Dr. Samuel told me that if the pressure did not go down in 20 minutes she would have to take his eye out. We sat and waited. The treatment worked but she told me that eventually that would have to happen. Some months later she operated on him to remove the eye. They called almost every day afterwards to see how he was doing. He is doing great. He is almost blind in his good eye but he doesn’t seem to notice it even when he turns into a wall. You will never find a better doctor or a better staff to take care of your pets.

Read about Neo’s story below.
Here’s Neo story. He was thrown off a second story balcony – twice by his previous owner. His hip was broken, the retina of his left eye was detached, his skull was cracked …. and and and. Worse than all that he was “confined” for 6 months awaiting the trial of his owner. At the end a very skilled dog trainer took him to her place of work. She sat with him an hour a day for weeks until he regained his trust for people. It then took several months until he was ready to come home with us. So you see he is special and we don’t take him to just any vet and I know you all feel that way too.
