|November 30, 2012,Sarasota, Florida, Vet Care Express Animal Ambulance recently purchased one of Sarasota County’s Advanced Life Support Ambulances and retrofitted the entire vehicle as an ambulance specifically used for pets. Launched in 2010, Vet Care Express Animal Ambulance has helped over 1,600 pet owners get their pets the urgent help that was needed. Because of increased demand and to increase awareness that this type of service is available, the new ambulance was purchased. This new ambulance adds significant capabilities in service including expanded service area, seamless coverage for multiple emergencies at once, additional space for extra-large animals or animals on stretchers, additional space for pet parents to accompany their pet,and increased on-board oxygen for oxygen dependent patients. In it’s first week on the road, the new ambulance has already played a significant role in saving a pet’s life. On the day before Thanksgiving, Marilyn Griffith’s cat fell critically ill. As Marilyn says, “I can’t thank you enough for your tender, loving care of my dear cat, Max. As you remember, he has congestive heart disease and cardiomyopathy and was on oxygen around the clock at Sarasota Veterinary Emergency Hospital. He needed to be taken up to BluPearl in Tampa to see the cardiologist and have an echocardiogram. I couldn’t take him because he needed to be on oxygen . From the moment you arrived to pick him up, I was filled with peace and confidence by your professionalism and very kind, concerned demeanor. It meant a lot to me because I was very worried and stressed and so was Max. You put him into a special oxygenated carrier and carefully carried him out to your beautiful, big, red ambulance where you quickly and expertly switched the oxygen over from portable to your on-board oxygen system. It was a long trip up, but you had made sure he was comfortable, and we arrived safely. You are the kindest, most caring, most professional person I have met in the veterinary field and I think I owe my boy, Max’s, life to you. Max thanks you, too. We will never forget you. You are performing a great service.”
