Veterinary Peeps! I have a client whose cat was just diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism and she needs the radioactive iodine therapy. We are aware of the practice in Ruskin, but it will be several weeks before they can see her. Does anyone know of another location that provides this therapy? We appreciate any help you can give! Thanks so much!

It’s Thankful Thursday!! We had quite a busy week with critical patients last week and, thankfully, there are happy endings! We had to transport post op foreign body surgeries, rat poison ingestion, and an oxygen dependent patient that needs thoracic surgery. They are all recovering and back at home! Many many thanks to all of our hospitals and Emergency Vet Hospitals for always working together to give our pets the very best of care! Special thanks to Desoto Animal Clinic, Big Paws Animal Hospital, Animal ER, and Blue Pearl Pet Hospital!! We’re so thankful for all of you!!

#NOMV - Join Us in Supporting Our Veterinary Community!

Friends of Vet Care Express, we’re reaching out to have you share our support for the hard-working professionals who provide essential healthcare for our beloved pet community. #NOMV (Not One More Vet) is an awareness campaign to address the egregious rate of su***de in the veterinary profession.

Including doctors, technicians/nurses, support staff and students, #NOMV is an action to support those working in the veterinary profession who may be considering su***de. We want to support these special people who frequently navigate so much including compassion fatigue and stressful situations in order to make the well-being of our pets a #1 priority. At any given time, either locally or worldwide, veterinary professionals remain on duty to care for our beloved pets...24/7/365.

How can you help?

Remember KINDNESS when interacting with team members at your local vet office. With the tremendous rise in pet ownership along with the huge demand for veterinary care, animal hospitals continually strive to meet and exceed your expectations. Let’s remember how hard these awesome professionals work to deliver optimal veterinary care.

Exercise PATIENCE while interacting with your pet’s family doctor and team. This helps tremendously, especially as vet teams navigate COVID—19 protocols both inside the building and curbside.

Express your APPRECIATION!
Veterinary teams absolutely love caring for your pet(s). Each patient holds a place near and dear in the hearts of those committed to the veterinary profession. Cards written with heartfelt messages mean a lot including other gestures such as sharing with staff members the positive impact they’ve made in the lives of your pet family.

With a collective effort, we can help express our gratitude and support to our local veterinary team members. Please share this message with your family and friends.

Sincerely, Cheryl Brady

#thankful 4U Thursday!
This sweet girl was having a breathing crisis due to Laryngeal Paralysis. Her owners realized that she would not survive the distance to their regular vet so they ran her into Ellenton Animal Hospital.

Ellenton Animal Hospital immediately gave her life saving oxygen and sedation to quickly alleviate her crisis. We transported her on oxygen to Animal ER for overnight care. These pictures are from the next morning when we transported her back home. She was so happy to be home that she stood up as soon as we turned into her development!

Many many thanks to Ellenton Animal Hospital and Animal ER for taking such great care of this sweet girl!

We have a double Thank You this week!
Sweet little Pixi hurt her lower back and was paralyzed in her hind limbs. She presented at Companion Veterinary and Urgent Care and was transferred to Animal ER for ongoing care and finally went to Levine Veterinary Neurology where she had surgery. She has done very well in recovery and hopefully will regain some use of her hind limbs! Thank you to all that helped her get the finest care that she needed!

This other handsome guy had bloated and needed emergency surgery at North River Animal Hospital and we transported him to Animal ER for overnight care. We took him back to North River the next day and he has been doing fantastic! Outstanding teamwork by North River and Animal ER for saving his life!

We transported this strong, handsome boy for his annual exam a few days ago. He is such a gentle giant, but he is terrified of riding in vehicles! We made sure we had our top team on duty so someone could talk to him and lovingly pet him the whole way. Many pets also do well in the ambulance because they cannot see to the outside- so that also lowers their anxiety. We were happy to report to mom and dad that he did VERY WELL! He was even able to doze off a little when we took him back home! We LOVE giving these patients special attention!

Thank you for transporting our big guy from Bradenton Veterinary Emergency to Ellenton Animal Hospital on Friday. We truly appreciate you!!! We had an emergency Thursday night and diesel experienced bloat but thankfully is recovering nicely! Your services are lifesaving!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Tilli and human mom would like to thank you for helping her last October. Yesterday she celebrated her 8th anniversary of her birthday 🎂👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Just wanted to thank you for the card you sent. And for the compassion you and Dawn had at Jessie's passing. My friend, who was there with me, was very impressed. You guys are the greatest and in my heart. Thank you again. ❤❤
Cheryl, Sent you a message. Please respond. Emergency!!!
Thank you, Cheryl for your kind words and being so willing to help us try to bring Gomez home. Here is the information as requested. Anyone even thinking about using this service, please do, Cheryl is an absolute saint and you can tell she truly cares about our furry family! ❤️
Thank you guys for taking care of our whole world ..GQ is 1000 percent better and back to himself. We appreciate y’all
So responsive and caring. Very professional and competent. One of the best resources in our area. Great service to anyone who has a sick pup! 😀😀
So glad to see you were nominated as one of the businesses, can't think of any company who deserves it more❤️🐕🐈
Thank you so much to the crew that took our Airedale Jade in her final journey The staff was unbelievable Very compassionate and empathetic. The Mitchell’s can’t thank you enough
A very special "thank you" to Dr. Wendy Ellis and Brittany from Veterinary Medical Center at LWR and to Cheryl and friend from Vet Care Express Animal Ambulance for the kindness and love you showed our Jet yesterday. Thank you all for coming to our home to help Jet go over the Rainbow Bridge with the comfort, dignity, and love he deserved. You made this all so much easier with the tenderness and caring you showed our family. Dr. Ellis, you and Brittany were so kind and gentle with Jet. Who knew we could all talk and laugh together at such a time? You had never met Jet or our family, but you took the time to share memories and stories (and chicken baby food for Jet). The compassion you showed him through this and with taking the time and extra step to give him medication to allow him to relax, pain free,while we said our goodbyes was priceless. Your love for animals, for Jet, and for our family was a gift. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Cheryl and friend, you allowed Jet his one last car ride in style.You gave him the farewell ride he deserved. Being carsick never deterred Jet from enjoying every singe moment of a car ride, and you fulfilled every boy's dream of riding in an ambulance. I can't think of a more fitting way of transporting him on the final step of his journey. You showed such us and him such love and respect at a very difficult time. Thank you so much for allowing us to send him off in his blanket with his favorite toy. Although yesterday was not easy, you all truly gave us the blessing of making it bearable. Because of you, Jet crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the comfort of his home and the arms of his family. Thank you all so very much.
Much thanks for transporting Corona from Blue Pearl to the Neurologist! Hard to believe she couldn't walk just 2 wks ago. She is doing amazingly well! Got her in a pool on day 3...swimming after her beloved tennis balls. She is now walking around a full block without dragging her foot and it's all I can do to keep her from running full out in the backyard. She's got a new swagger...but hopeful things will continue to improve. Thanks again!
Thank you for taking such good care of my poodle Gus. You transported him from the Vet Hospital to Palmetto Animal Clinic and I knew he was in the best of care with you. It's so traumatic when our pets are ill and even worse - I was out of town. My daughters kicked into high gear and then the Emergency Hospital reached out to you to. It was a team effort and I am so extremely grateful! I will recommend your service to everyone!
