Naturally, I was concerned about Bambi’s, my dear 6 pound Chihuahua, major dental surgery as I had procrastinated for several years, despite encouraging support from the team at the Ashburn Animal Hospital. Bambi clearly had a serious dental issue but her heart murmur made it particularly difficult for me to make the right decision. Fortunately, Dr. Tania Germann and her very talented team of Veterinary Technicians and Client Care Specialists led by Sue Valsic provided the encouragement and support I needed to shed years of guilty feelings.
Everyone at the Ashburn Animal Hospital helped me through these feelings by providing accurate answers to all my questions based their clinical experiences and compassion for animals. Needless to say, Bambi’s dental surgery was highly successful – thanks to a very special team of dedicated animal care givers. A special thanks to Dr. Germann as her early morning detailed description of the process was most reassuring and her phone call following surgery was awesome!
Yes, with accurate information about the underlying problem and the treatment prognosis, the best decisions can be made. Bambi sends her best wishes!
