Last Fall one of my Great Danes experienced GDV, or bloat and torsion, which is a very serious, usually fatal problem common to Great Danes. It was after hours so we went to the emergency hospital did the surgery, and afterward he needed to be hospitalized for several days during the day. They wanted to keep him 24 hours a day, but they did allow me to take him home at night when he improved a lot the first day.
The vets at Grassmere over the next week or so while he was hospitalized days were all very respectful, kind, thorough, and understanding. They were up front with me about his chances (not good), and treated me as though i know best for my animals, which is the truth but not a sentiment many vets share these days. My boy has survived 6 months and had his 9th birthday!
Pros: Thorough, Respectful, Knowledgeable
Cons: Parking is difficult, Baths are expensive, No DIY injections
