I would like to express my deepest thanks to Dr. Bender, his wife, and the staff at Star Valley Veterinary Clinic.
Our family dog, Bandit, fell ill and was taken to Dr. Bender. The vet performed surgery on Bandit and located an obstruction in his intestines. The obstruction was removed and a large amount of his intestines were removed, but the dog would start to improve and then take a turn for the worse. Dr. Bender and his wife were taking Bandit home with them so they could watch him constantly. Dr. Bender was even sleeping on an air mattress next to our sweet Bandit.
Another surgery was required because our boy just could not get back on his feet. He made it through the procedure, but passed away a couple of days later. When I received the call from the vet, his voice was full of sadness from the heart. One of the girls in the office also had a cracking in her voice when she called wanting to know if I wanted his collar.
Throughout this ordeal, Dr. Bender called us numerous times a day to give us updates. I went down to the clinic every day to visit Bandit and I could tell that this wonderful dog had stolen the hearts of Dr. Bender and his staff; I also left each time having no doubt that he was receiving the best treatment possible.
I cannot give enough thanks to the genuine, loving care given to our family pet by Dr. Bender, his wife and the staff at the clinic. We have truly lost an important part of our family and dear friend, but through this we have found many new and wonderful friends.
Again, our heartfelt thanks.
