You cannot find a more compassionate team than the Oncology team at CARE. When our little Muldoon was diagnosed with lymphoma we were at a loss how to help her. Our vet referred us to CARE. That made all the difference. Muldoon enjoyed a wonderful quality of life for the time she had. We are eternally grateful.
We received a diagnosis and lost our beloved dog Chelsea in one day last year at CARE. I would have given anything for the opportunity to offer her care or to even know she was ill. Devastating is the right word.😔
