My cockatoo parrot, China, has been a patient of Dr. Fogelberg's and Ingrid's since years before they joined Maybeck Animal Hospital. There are other vets I can take my China to that are much closer to our home, but I would much rather drive hours to and from Maybeck Animal; Hospital so that Dr. Fogelberg and Ingrid can continue treating my precious China. You see, China is a special needs parrot because she has violent seizures during times of high stress, so every office visit my poor baby has to suffer through multiple seizures even when all she is treated for is getting her nails trimmed. Dr. Fogelberg is so generous with his time allowing China and I to stay in a quiet room while her shot of valium helps her to relax to stop her seizures before he treats her, and when China finally shows signs of falling asleep once the valium takes effect, Ingrid will assist Dr. Fogelberg in giving China gas sedation to keep her in a deep sleep while they treat her. After Dr. Fogelberg and Ingrid are finished with their examination and treatment, they allow us to stay in their exam room until China is awake and able to leave for her journey back home safely. I truly feel blessed to be have such a caring, gentle, compassionate, and patient team helping my precious China. If you are searching for that extra special veterinarian and assistant to care for your precious loved one whether your baby is a dog, cat, or any exotic animal, you'll never find a more capable, gentle, compassionate and patient duo! Saying 'thank you' to them for all their years of service will never feel like it's enough!
