In 12 years of having pets, we have never encounteredd a vet or staff member with such appreciation, empathy, respect and compassion for animals and their people. Our sadness was tempered by gratitude, knowing that Angel's last moments in this world were the way we wanted. Dr. Liz saw to that.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Our beloved cat of 12 years had what seemed to be a stroke. Since we were new to Boone, we relied on a Humane Society Board member, who recommended Dr. Liz McClure. She made time at 8:30 the next morning to see our cat Angel, a new patient. Two medications helped Angel make a stunning but temporary recovery. He enjoyed renwed vigor the next day, appearing to be our same devoted companion. However, he worsened that following day, a Sunday. Dr. McClure had given us an after-hours contact number. She came in a snowstorm on a Monday morning, bringing a gifted assistant named Amy to make a house call. We were able to allow Angel to be euthanized at home. After a brief discussion about our options, we agreed that Angel needed an end to his suffering. The doctor apologized to Angel before making the final injection.
