A letter to the Membership
Hi everyone, you may already be aware of CVS, but I wanted to pass on a wonderful doctor’s group that helped me with my dog Dreamer’s surgery that happened in 2016. Dreamer tore the ACL on her left hind leg, and my regular vet took xrays and told me I would need a good Board Certified Orthopedic surgeon to do the surgery. I interviewed two different places and I decided on CVS (California Veterinary Specialists) in Ontario, off the 60 Freeway. The Board Certified Surgeons were great, and so was the staff. It is a large place and they are available for emergency conditions 7-days a week, 24 hours a day. They have two other locations, which are in Orange County. Dreamer has since healed beautifully and her bone has filled in. Luckily I have major medical with Nationwide Pet Insurance, so the cost was covered about 95%. Even though CVS did not recommend physical therapy after the two months of healing, I took Dreamer to physical therapy at Rose City Vet (which is Dream’s regular vet) in Pasadena, and again, the insurance covered most of the rehab costs. So after two months of rehab on top of two months of minimum confinement, Dreamer is doing great and can run again.
Have a wonderful and Blessed New Year.
INFORMATION FOR OUR MEMBERS
There was a letter received from the AKC concerning “spear phishing,” which is an email scam requesting money for a disaster trailer. AKC reminded clubs to be wary of any emails asking for money. They recommend personally contacting the person (not via email) to confirm the request is authentic. Hackers often know the calendar of the person they are impersonating and request money when they would be difficult to contact.
Donations to AKC can be made through their web site or by sending a check directly to each office. Do not click on a link provided by the email requesting funds as links can be easily impersonated. If you receive any suspicious emails delete the email immediately and advise your fellow club officers without replying to the original email.
