Bruno is a  German Shepherd who had undergone a successful emergency procedure at a surgical facility to reverse torsion and remove his damaged spleen. His surgery was completed at 3:00 a.m. and his owners were to pick him up at 7:30 a.m. that same day.With a snowstorm forecast for Hendersonville, Bruno’s owners were worried about being able to transport him back and forth between his regular veterinarian each morning and the surgical facility each evening for the professional monitoring and care he needed. In a bad storm, it was possible that Bruno would end up unattended in a closed veterinarian office or at the owner’s isolated mountaintop home, where they felt unprepared to handle post-surgical care following such a traumatic procedure.

Then a friend told Bruno’s owners about Western Carolina Regional Animal Hospital & Veterinary Emergency Hospital and he was brought to us for round-the-clock care. That gave his owners peace of mind that Bruno would have the professional care he needed, night or day. Equally important to them, they were welcome to come visit him during his stay.
