"I just wanted to express my pleasure in the care that my dog Baron has recieved since he joined us last March. I have had dogs most of my life and have dealt with many veterinarians. Dr. Sonnekalb has been amazing. It is so obvious that he cares for each pet. He has gone above and beyond what can be expected. He remembers names and problems. He calls to check on Baron. He has been a pleasure to deal with. He is a true gem in your practice. All of your techs have also been amazing. When Baron comes through the door he is treated like a King! They all know his name and they are on the floor greating him! You people are doing a great job! Thank you!"     (January 2011)

"I am so happy to have been referred to your care. I am very impressed with everyone I met from reception through to the examination. My cat Holly has never behaved so well!!!!!!  Being able to pay my bill in the exam room, exit out the back directly to the parking lot, and not having to go back through reception is huge to a cat owner." (August 2010)

"My resident cat (Honey, age 5) and my recently deceased cat (Rusty, age 17) were clients of another animal hospital. When we adopted Alexander (age 7mos) just this past Saturday and he was sick, we couldn't get a timely appt with our vet so I called your Hospital and you were able to see Alexander much sooner so I went to you.....boy am I glad I did! As you know, Alex was very sick and needed immediate attention! Dr Carmichael saw him and treated him. I laid down with Alexander last night and ended up falling asleep with him next to me....only to be awoken by his fit of sneezing. I was SO scared when he was sneezing blood! I called your Hospital and left a message. Within a few moments, Dr Sonnekalb called. I explained what had happened and he said I needed to get the bleeding to stop and if I couldn't, to take him to Emergency. The bleeding did stop and all was good. Dr Sonnekalb called me first thing this morning to check on Alexander! What a WONDERFUL thing to do! Alexander is doing MUCH better already and I am VERY thankful to YOU for that. Alexander AND Honey will both be patients at your wonderful facility! Customer Service means a LOT to me and you have proven to me that you REALLY care about my pet(s)! Thank you, thank you, thank you!   (November 2010)

"Thank you very much for seeing Duval on such short notice on Wednesday. He had something caught in his throat, and we were worried that he would have trouble breathing. You understood our concern when we called to announce that we were just showing up! We know that Dr. McDaniel saw us on a day when he was booked solid, and we truly appreciate it. Of course (and luckily), Duval's issue appeared to resolve before we saw the doctor. However, it was reassuring to know that you were there and willing to see us for what we considered a potential emergency. Dr. Sonnekalb (who was off that day) is always so caring, helpful, and responsive, and Dr. McDaniel only confirmed that we are clients of the best animal care facility in the area, if not anywhere! The staff is always so friendly and helpful too. Both Duval and Blu are very comfortable with everyone whenever we are there (probably too often, but you always understand). We are very grateful and just wanted you to know."  (February 2011)

"You guys are great. I highly recommend Sand Creek Animal Hospital! So does my kitty Samson!" (February 2011)

 

 

 

 

 

 

"My children and I had such a wonderful experience there.  It was a first for all of us.  We were greatly reassured  by the "good prognosis" given to our loved, Speckles, and would definitely return there if any pet were to need medical treatment.  Everyone was friendly and made my family and I feel welcome and happy.  I was surprised by the availability of our appointment, hardly any wait time, and the cost of our visit was lower than I expected. Thank you so much Sand Creek Animal Hospital!!"  (February 2011)

"Sand Creek, you guys are the best. If anyone wants caring,comforting vets this is the place.  And anytime you need advice they're there for you. Thanks everyone." (February 2011) 

 

 

"Just wanted to let you guys know I am going to miss you all! Unfortunately since we've moved you are too far away now. But thanks for everything you've done throughout the years and thanks for being there for me through good and bad! You are the best!" (March 2011) 

 

 

"We were referred to Dr. McDaniel about 7 years ago when our dog was seriously ill. Dr. McDaniel and his office were so compassionate and understanding of our struggle to help our dog, as well as do what was best for him. They helped us through the next 9 months as we gave him the best life possible given his illness. After his passing, we received such a heartwarming, sensitive card from Dr. McDaniel's office. We have never forgotten the caring and sensitivity he gave to us during this most difficult time. We eventually adopted another "baby" in the form of a happy, friendly, excited beagle who loves everyone he meets. Thank you for your kindness over the years! It is appreciated more than you know." (March 2011) 

"The staff and vets at Sand Creek Animal Hospital are both professional and passionate about pet care. I highly recommend their services. I am very impressed with their follow up calls after visits. They go above and beyond to make sure you have both information and tools to keep your pets healthy and happy. They also are on call when emergencies happen after hours and return calls promptly." (April 2011)

"This was my first visit at your clinic. It was a great expierience. You all treated my dog wonderfully. He was so calm and at ease. You explained everything perfectly and I left feeling very confident in how to care for him at home. He was in pain yesterday and by this morning he was up moving around on his own and I was so ectastic. I am grateful to you all for your compassion and care." (July 2011)

 

"I just switched to Sand Creek Animal Hospital just recently and I was very impressed with the staff and how well the Dr's worked with my animals. I feel the whole staff really cares about my concerns and has my animals best interest in heart. I felt the Dr was in no rush to push me out the door, she spent time with me and my animals and answered all my questions and I did not feel like I was a bother." (September 2011)

Comments :    Our beloved companion of more than 13 years, Duval (a handsome, loving black standard poodle), passed away a week ago. He had been struggling with various health issues for a few years, and the last year was particularly challenging for him. At the same time, the last few months of his life were truly a gift -- for him, for us, and for our two other dogs (who adored him as well). Dr. Sonnekalb helped us to make important decisions about Duval's medical care, including the removal of a huge lipoma that gave him a new lease of life and enabled him to enjoy some of his best days in years. When we found out that Duval had cancer before Christmas, Dr. Sonnekalb was straight with us about what to expect (while always be sensitive and caring). His honesty and compassion helped us to prepare ourselves as well as to be aware of the signs that Duval might be ready to go. Dr. Sonnekalb helped us to trust ourselves to make the right decisions for Duval. Despite the deep sense of loss that we feel, we have peace in believing that we did right by him. He brought us so much joy, and we are so lucky that that we were able in return to help him to have a good quality of life until the end and to avoid suffering. Our biggest fear was that he would be alone or would suffer at the end, and neither happened. We still can't find the words to adequately express our gratitude to Dr. Sonnekalb and the team at Sand Creek -- not just on Duval's last day but every day that we needed them. It was always such a comfort to know that you were all there to help and that you cared. We are heartbroken by the loss of our precious Duval, but we are comforted by our belief that he received the best care possible and that he did not suffer. Thank you again, Dr. Sonnekalb, and thank you to each and every member of the staff for your kindness and compassion, including the beautiful card with Duval's paw print. We treasure it. Carol and Tim Healey

Comments :    To the Providers and Staff at sand Creek, You are true examples of what any client would expect in their vet. We are going through a tough time with our 6 month old puppy penelope at the moment, and your staff has made us feel nothing but safe and reassured. Every step of the way we are receiving calls and updates on her status. We appreciate everything that the staff has done and continue to do for our little love and our Buddy to!!. You are all so wonderful!! Thank you so much!!

Comments :    This morning I had a very difficult decision to make in putting my cat Owen (@17 years old) down. Dr. Sonnekalb reassured me that I was making the right decision when he saw Owen. We have been working together with Owen and his medical condition for many years. Dr. David is blessed with being such a compassionate person. He even gave me a big hug at the end. Thank you so much and Owen thanks you too.
