Max the dog

“Their patience and kindness and thorough explanations of what I was dealing with meant the world to me.”

Read Max's Story
Late last year my dog Max suddenly couldn’t stand or walk so I brought him to [AVSC] to be seen, terrified of what I would find out. He had bulging discs in his neck and would continue to get worse without treatment. I opted to go forward with surgery and a Hyperbaric treatment (which is incredible for so many types of ailments!). I asked millions of questions to the team there and did tons of research on what the best option for Max would be. I wanted to give him the best quality of life I could.

Doing this surgery was the right decision and once I had all my information I had no doubts in the treatment or the team. Their patience and kindness and thorough explanations of what I was dealing with meant the world to me. Dr. Kube performed the surgery; she is smart and amazing at what she does and truly cares about her patients and their parents! We had a few rough weeks of recovery but once I started him with physical therapy he completely thrived and has been progressing ever since! His personality is bigger than ever, he stands taller, literally, and he is no longer in pain.

I can’t say enough about the people at this hospital. They love Max as much as I do! Every single person there has helped me through this and his favorite person (and PT therapist!) Renee has been the best of all. She has been so diligent in his therapy and proactive in his treatment every step of the way, not to mention the emotional support! If you ever need a specialist for your pet I highly highly recommend [AVSC].
