“As long as I live in this area, I will never take my pets to anyone other than Dr. Goldman. Not only is he a smart, informed, caring vet who loves animals and is kind to their people, but everyone he hires is the same. His practice takes excellent care of both their veterinary patients and their families.
Every time my cats go in for an appointment with Dr. Goldman, it’s like they’re visiting old friends who treat them with gentleness, love and excitement at seeing them again. Terry at the front desk greats us with enthusiasm and always has a minute or 2 to catch up since last time we saw each other. Jessica welcomes us enthusiastically with lots of pets (for the cats, sickos), as though it’s been only a couple of weeks since we were all singing karaoke together. Then Dr. Arnie comes in, pets the cats and the thermometer party starts. (Granted, that part is less fun for the cats.)
My cats haven’t needed any extraodinary care (other than an ear polyp one of them had in her youth but that turned out okay), but now that they’re reaching their dotage, I know I can trust Dr. Goldman not only to take excellent care of them, but tell me the truth. I know this because when I first moved to Canton 14 years ago, I had a beloved elderly cat with kidney disease. I explored treatments such as getting her a kidney transplant (not feasible at 18 1/2) and with the utmost compassion, Dr. Goldman helped me understand what could and couldn’t be done to improve her quality of life in her last days.
Toward the end, Dr. Goldman taught me how and when to give her fluids, which added a few weeks of good days. He was there when she passed the point of palliative treatment to gently usher her across the rainbow bridge while I pet her for the last time. His staff pressed her little foot in clay so that I’d always have something of her.
I never hesitate to board my cats at his facility when I travel because I know Dr. Arnie loves them and will make sure they’re cared for with the same love and concern they get at home.
You can trust Dr. Goldman’s practice to treat your pets with the same care and concern that you feel for your furry family members.”
