Diagnosis: Hit by car, cracked skull
I found out first hand just how important it is to have a state of the art veterinary facility here in San Ramon.
A few years ago, my cat Raider was hit by a car. I was sure that he was dying. It was before 9 a.m., but I knew that Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center had emergency care. I rushed him to the hospital and within minutes a doctor had checked him over.
Raider's skull was cracked from the top of his head to the roof of his mouth. They seemed very confident and assured me that at this facility and with their experienced staff, Raider had a good chance of survival. Raider was placed in an incubator and was given medication to help with the swelling of his brain. They kept him snuggled up in blankets and continually checked on him. The vet techs would even come in on their days off to hold him and make sure he was comfortable. I was constantly updated on his condition whether I was there or not. I knew that everything was being done to help Raider recover. Recovery was very difficult, but the staff was always there for me every step of the way. They supported me and helped me so much through this extraordinary journey.
Raider is still improving today and is still very loving. The devotion and knowledge of Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center & Urgent Care is unsurpassed. I am so thankful to Bishop Ranch Veterinary Center for saving my cat Raider, he is my best friend.
