Woo! We here at FiveSibes l-o-v-e our vet techs at Kingston Animal Hospital! The loving and amazing care they have always given my pets - the FiveSibes and our kitties Smokie and Binx, goes beyond a job - their care comes from their hearts! As many of you know, my boy Gibson had many special needs stemming from his Canine Epilepsy that required much extra care (laser therapy on his weak hind end, CCL tear healed through Conservative Care Treatment/Management, a suspicious growth removal, and even at the end when he was suddenly stricken with a bleeding spleen and diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma and required IV drip and medication), some of which he required in-home care and treatments as he could not be transported. Our vet techs were right there not only caring for him, but loving him as well. I could not have done all what I did without them and our fabulous vet team. So today, we want to say a huge heartfelt "Thank You" to all of "Gibson's Girls" who also take exceptional care of all of our pets, including Harley, Wolf, Chloe, Bandit, and kitty Binx.
In honor of National Vet Tech Week, I put together this video of some of our wonderful vet techs as they do what they do best - lovingly care for our pets. You can see just how much Gibson, Harley, and Chloe enjoyed all the special treatment. Gibson never realized he was being treated for his health issues, but rather having a "spa" day with his favorite girls - Jessica, June, Maya, and Sheri!

I'd also like to send out a "thank you" to LVT and Research Specialist Julie Nettifee of North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine for all of her work and research on behalf of Canine Epilepsy.
On behalf of the FiveSibes and our whole family, we send out our heartfelt "Thank You" to our very special Vet Techs and to all the amazing, caring Vet Techs everywhere! This week is for you!
