Dr. Stephen Samson

Dr Samson and Staff,

We want to thank you and your staff for all the caring love and attention you provided our wonderful Rocky. We know that you treated him as you would your own companion and put forth all efforts to give him the best quality of life for as long as possible. We feel that he touched your hearts as well and your support will always be remembered.

Dr Samson,

Thank you for all the love and care you gave to our beloved "Bear". You gave him many years, for him and as us to have together, that he would not have had without you. Bear and all of you will always be in our hearts. We greatly appreciate all of your professional efforts and personal efforts. We feel blessed to have you  for all our pets.

Dr Samson and Staff,

Thank you for your professionalism, compassion, and support with Junior. I am grateful for your efforts. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your kindness with Jr, Dusty, and I. It was a very difficult time for us and the compassion showed to Jr and us was tremendous. We do appreciate all that you did to try and save Jr. It was up to "God". Thank you once again for all that you did!!!

Dr. Samson,

Yesterday I referred a friend to your care for her severely ill geriatic dog, "Zoe".  My friend, Peggy, was very impressed with your skill and compassion. We all knew Zoe was not going to last long, but Peggy was most anxious about her care. You were wonderful and I wanted to thank you for being so kind to them. God love you!

Dr Samson and Staff,

Thank you for all the help and great care you gave us with our feral cats and kittens, We appreciated everything you did for them. We have nine now and they are all happy and healthy-our own little colony. I would say they become less feral everyday! Thank you again, the work you all do is greatly appreciated. You should be very proud!

Dear Dr Samson and Staff,

Dear Dr Samson, LeeAnn, Jennifer, Kayla, and the rest of the wonderful staff,

We would like to thank you for everything you have done for us, especially for Nalu and Roxy over the years. You have taken such good care of them during their visits with you and your gentle touch and compassion has always been so evident. We loved Roxy and Nalu so very much and they brought so much joy to our lives. Losing them has been such a truly heartbreaking and difficult time for us. They were such an important part of our family and we feel so lost without them, but we have wonderful memories they gave us  and will forever keep them alive in our hearts and in our souls. The last month of their lives was so hard to go through, but you were always there to answer any question or concern, or to just simply talk and that means so much to us. We do know that they are up in heaven running and playing together and herding each other around like they always loved to do, peaceful at last. Thank you for being a part of their sweet, precious, beautiful lives, We are forever grateful.

                                                                 Love Tony and Melissa C.

Dear Dr Samson,

We just wanted to thank you for opening your office for Dukes treatment on Sunday, due to him ingesting rat pellets. We really appreciate your service, especially since we were on vacation and far from home. We were also very impressed when we heard back from your staff on Monday to see how Duke was doing. Thanks to you we were able to enjoy the rest of the week at the beach, and Duke certainly enjoyed swimming in the ocean. Thanks again!

Dear Dr Samson, Dr Hicks, Jennifer, Jenny, Johnny, LeeAnn, Alli , and all the staff,

I want each of you to know you played an important part in keeping my beloved Casey with me for over 13 years, along with my beloved Spunky for 12 years. Your patience, compassion, knowledge, and expertise will always be remembered and deeply appreciated, and Dr Samson, I always felt Casey was getting the best care veterinary medicine had to offer. You all should be proud of the work you do for the animals. Casey and Spunky will be in my heart always.

                                                          With Sincerely gratitude and admiration,

                                                           Sue N.

Dear Dr Samson and the Lovely Ladies,

Oja would not be alive today without all of your loving care and positive support. I am forever grateful for your amazing care and your own love of every life and that you so gently and lovingly touch.

                                                     Much Gratitude,

                                                     Jessi P.

Dear Dr Samson,

Thank you for being so compassionate and caring for our little girl Prissy.  We wanted to alleviate her suffering but at the same time we wanted her for a few more days. When it came time to say goodbye to her you were very kind and helped us. It was the hardest decision we have ever made, but we knew it was time to let her go-she will always be in our heart and memories. The greatest gift of unconditional love and that does not ever die. We were away from home and her vet. We appreciate you being there for us and for Prissy. We just wanted you to know how grateful we were. We know she would want us to remember her, celebrate her and grieve for her and then let her go, freely and in peace. Thank you for all your help.

Mike and Lenore B.
