“Dr. Killough is so good and kind. He explains everything well and looks out for all my cats wellness. I also want to express appreciation for the care my cat Tess received 9.30.14 (in the very wee early morning hours) from Dr. Messenger who was on-duty in the Emergency Care Center. Tess suffered a stroke (she is 19 years old) and I presumed she would need to be put down. Dr. Messenger, without telling me what to choose, encouraged me to consider that her particular type of stroke had not affected her brain, and that she could achieve a great degree of recovery given time, good nutrition and good hydration. I chose NOT to have her put down. We had a rough couple of weeks, but she made daily progress and is now eating, drinking and walking on her own and also using the litter box independently. There is still progress to be made in her walking and balance, but she gets stronger and better every day. Thank you Dr. Messenger! The care my cats receive from the doctors and staff at Long is far and away superior to any vet in Mecklenburg County. I feel very fortunate to have this care available. Thanks to all!”
