Bugsy Collins

Testimonials from happy patients ( And their owners )

“Dr. Gorbutt and Dr. Tucker

We sincerely appreciate the care given to our Yorkshire Terrier Bugsy. Bugsy had been panting heavily and was very anxious for about a week. We took him to FVRC and Dr. Gorbutt examined him and told us that he had a spinal problem, which we had experienced before but not to this extent. Bugsy was given medication, and we needed to give him complete “crate” rest. At first we couldn’t get him to take his medicine, so when we called, the techs offered to give it to him. We gladly took him about three times to FVRC before we found a cheese that he liked in which to wrap the pills. He was still panting a lot and very anxious so we took him back to FVRC. Dr. Tucker reexamined him and increased his meds. We are truly grateful to both Dr. Gorbutt and Tucker for their gentle care, not only for Bugsy but also for their kindness to us.”
