We want to thank you for everything that everyone did to save Simba. We were so lucky you were there for us.
P.S. - Sorry Simba was so noisy. He was just expressing his appreciation.
Thank you so much.
To the Staff,
We wanted to thank you again for all the kindness and concern shown to our cat, Phaedra, throughout her care. Everyone was always welcoming and the technicians were kind and compassionate. We never worried when we boarded her.
To Dr. Hass,
After receiving a poor diagnosis/care from another clinic we were more than grateful for the knowledge/advice and proper treatment that Phaedra subsequently received. You provided current standards of care with regard to feline renal failure and it was because of our combined effort that we were able to enjoy Phaedra for an extra year and a half. You are a stellar animal advocate and I would highly recommend you and your practice.

Having Toby in our family for 13.5 years has truly been a blessing. She taught us so much about love and life. So many wonderful memories help to bring peace to our hearts - where she will live on forever.
Thank-you Dr. Haas and all of the Vets and staff at VCS for your tremendous skill and good counsel. We know that Toby's last few years were enhanced because of you.
Best Regards -

Thank you so much for all of your help with our dog, Sassie. We were so worried about her when we were out of town. You kept in contact with us the whole time until we were able to get home and come see her. The staff at the clinic are all wonderful.
We really appreciate all of the care you gave her. We know she is getting older, but she is part of our family.
We will refer your clinic to others. Thanks again for everything.

There are those who say they care and there are those, like you, who show they care. Words cannot begin to express how much we appreciate your support!
Because of your generosity, we can continue to rescue greyhounds scheduled to be destroyed and provide them with any and all medical treatment (including spay/neuter, shots, teeth cleaned) necessary. We can give them the opportunity to “grow old” with someone who will love them back.
We are thankful for friends and advocates like you who want to help us stop the abuse and senseless destruction of these gentle dogs. It is caring peole that make our fight possible.
On behalf of Michigan REGAP, thank you for helping us save lives.
Together, we really can make a difference.

Karen - Auburn Hills, MI
We began training our Service Dog, Blazey, in March of 2010. At that time she was five months old and ready to work. The first impressions we got from the center and trainers were very good. Ina, the head trainer, was very knowledgeable about Service Dog work and the techniques for training them. We definitely felt assured that Blazey would get great training. Right from the start we were able to work on Blazey’s ability to ignore distractions, a crucial aspect of Service Dog work. Ina gradually built the distraction levels and now Blazey is able to overcome stressful situations in large crowds. Blazey has been able to enjoy the benefits of private training sessions, group classes, agility work, and the much deserved fun and socialization. She has passed her Canine Good Citizen evaluation, which is given to all group class students, and most recently her Service Dog test. We were even able to work with Ina to resolve some behavioral issues that we experienced while out of town. Even though the trainers have high expectations for the owners and their dogs they also give thorough explanations so everything that is taught at the center is understood and can be taught at home. It is a comforting feeling to know that you always have their guidance and support no matter what. Blazey is the amazing Service Dog she is today because of them. She is very confident in her work and always looks forward to her training sessions.
The Hill Family
Ina, Theresa, Tracy, Ellen, and the rest of the WPVH Training and Behavior Center have been training my rescue dog Maximus for over a year. The WPVH have been the Veterinarians to our family’s dogs for over 10 years, so naturally when we adopted Max the first place we brought him was WPVH. Upon his first visit we met Ina Herbert, the head trainer of the WPVH Training and Behavior Center (WPVHTBC). We spoke with Ina about Max and about the reasons the old owners turned him into the SPCA for adoption. Ina briefly discussed with me how she would approach training Max and how she would address those problems (i.e. chewing, barking, not sitting still, etc.).
We did not put Max into classes at first as we thought we could train him ourselves. All of our other dogs were taken to Fly By Night Dog Training companies that are not in business anymore. Nonetheless, we thought we could use that past experience to train Max. Our past experiences with dog training had been classes that taught simple routines of sit, stay, and down. To be honest when looking back at the training techniques we were learning we were wasting our money because most dogs can easily learn the commands of sit, down, and stay. These training companies we attended did not provide you the learning tools to get your dog to do it on command and/or to do the commands we learned for long periods of time.
After a few weeks of trying these old training methods on Max we started noticing that he was an extremely hyperactive dog who was used to having his way. When we first adopted him he was a little shy, but once he became comfortable in our home he started to show his true personality. We tried everything we could think of to get him to listen to us and it was not working. So we picked-up the phone and called Ina. We told her we tried our methods of training and were not achieving the results we wanted. She advised us to bring him in for a private training session so that she could evaluate him. During the private training session we went into further detail of our original conversation from our first meeting. We discussed techniques for handling behavioral issues and developed a customized plan to help our family achieve the goals we wanted for a dog in our household.
Ina’s approach to all dogs is customized to their individual problems. She incorporates different training methods for individual dog’s needs, which she draws from the experiences of her long career. Her methods and knowledge far surpass any trainers we have met. We have learned so may techniques on how to properly train your dog, but the most important thing we learned is we have to be fair to our dogs. We need to understand their behaviors before we can expect them to listen to us. For example, Ina always stresses the fact that once a dog learns a command it does not mean they will do it for you. We have to practice with them and we have to get our dogs to respect us as the owner (“alpha dog”) of the household. It takes time, repetitions, practice, and respect to have a dog to perform a learned skill on command.
Our initial fear after adopting Max and seeing his behavior was he would not be able to be calm enough for when family and friends came to visit. The last thing we wanted was a dog that we had to keep locked away all the time. We also feared that if he didn’t get trained appropriately that he would destroy the house. We wanted a dog we could take in public, go to the beach, and would be calm when family and friends came over to visit.
Ina and her team have spent hours taking Max from a dog that potentially couldn’t be around people and dogs and turned him into a dog that has the skills and abilities to be more than just a household pet. Ina has shown me that Max has the capabilities of becoming a service or search and rescue dog. This is amazing progress in a year’s time to become a dog of that caliber from what he was when we originally adopted him. He was a dog that would chew anything he could find, he would not sit still, and he would bark at random people and things. That has all changed over the course of the past year.
Ina saw a dog and a family that just did not have direction in training. She was able to harness Max’s energy and turn him into an amazing dog. Max has a lot of energy and love for friends, family, and canines and now knows how to express it appropriately. Ina and her team where abl to give Max and his family direction and the tools to properly train him at home. We now know this is a life journey for Max and us and not just a couple of months of practice. Our family is so pleased with Max’s progress and with the dog Max has become. We are truly thankful for Ina and the WPVH Training and Behavior Center.
Dixie is not our first Jack; our family has owned Jack Russells for several decades. We are well acquainted with the breed and what comes with it. Jacks are headstrong, opinionated, extremely energetic, and smart. That being said, you cannot be a known biter and remain a Ford…period. I tried a touchy feely dog trainer initially with Dixie. Worked her through her commands often and wound up with Dixie just humoring me by sitting and staying while she continued to be a hot, neurotic mess. She incessantly paced, licked the rug, “scream-barked” at passing dogs/humans/bicycles/leaves…and then began attacking dogs and humans even though on a choke chain. She bit the drycleaner delivery person, tried on a regular basis to attack the UPS man through the plate glass, and then bit a friend who was giving us a hug upon entering our home. If she was crated and the doorbell rang or she heard a noise she didn’t approve of she would go insane. Dixie would shred her bed and lose her mind. None of this behavior is conducive to remaining a Ford! With Dixie now five years old, my first visit to Ina was one of desperation. I was worried that rehabilitation was impossible, but after meeting with Ina and listening to her training techniques, coupled with the fact that she would have Dixie in her charge for four days a week, I left hopeful. After only a few short weeks Dixie is a changed Jack Russell…truly. She is a shadow of her old neurotic self and that is directly attributed to Ina and the training center. Their training credentials are solid and they are firm trainers who do not tolerate nonsense and only reward proper behavior. Biting/attacking and neurosis is dealt with swiftly and consistently. The trainers were able to communicate with me on how to train Dixie at home and how to deal with her unpleasant behaviors. We now have a much happier dog that is enjoyed. I know that Dixie’s behaviors were extreme and most owners just want their dogs properly trained from the start…
Dear Dr Haas & Staff,
I want to let you know how grateful I am for all your work, help and consideration and kindness to me and my dog Hobbes. Just to let you know I have adopted a 1 year old foster dog from Last Day Dog Rescue. His part Flat Coat Retriever Black dogs don't get adopted as much so that was my goal. I adopted him in 2012 - I think he'll be two years old in March. His name is Reese and my sister says he's reincarnated Hobbes. He's a great dog, very lovable and easy. Once again, Thank You so much for all your help and generosity.

Dear Dr. Hass,
We want to thank you for the lovely flower in memory of Shamus and your entire staff for the thoughtful card. Most of all, we want to say, "THANKS" for the loving care everyone there gave to our beloved pet, Shamus.
We, too, were shocked at Shamus' rapid decline. Although he continued to eat well, he couldn't keep anything down. His breathing was so labored and he became so weak that he wouldn't get up and or even lift his head. We couldn't bear to see him like that. Thanks again for your care and concern.
Darla & Bob - Ypsilanti, Michigan
I just wanted to thank everyone who took care of Gracie during her surgery and afterwards. She did very well after the surgery even though the progress was poor. She was happy and playing at home until May 19th and on the 20th she was obviously in pain and Dr. Zubke euthanized her. She was a very special companion to me and I miss her very much. Bless all of you for what you do for God’s littlest creatures. I know I can count on you if I need your services in the future.
Just a short note to thank everyone involved with the care of our dog Zeke after his surgery and on his final day on Earth. Your kindness and compassion towards him and us was very apparent and very much appreciated. We are so glad we had people like you to help us during this difficult time.

To all the caring doctors and staff at Veterinary Care Specialists;
I wanted to let you know that Dusty passed away peacefully Monday, June 12th. He had been suffering from kidney failure for a while. After a week of not eating and barley being able to stand with his back legs, I brought him into my vet. I would have hoped he would pass at home but we all know how feisty and stubborn Dusty could be! I thank you all so much for the love and care you gave to Dusty during his many stays with you. I always felt so badly when he would snap at some of you but you never seemed to mind and always forgave him. He was a crazy dog at times but he is greatly missed. Thanks again.
I want to thank those of you who were quick to diagnose my problem and give me the care I needed to make it through a “tuff” time. I hold a special place in my owner’s heart that would have created a large void if I did not make it through this. It is because of loving, caring and dedicated people that I am able to enjoy and witness another day. P.S. My owners and “brothers” (Briar and Buck) thank you as well. They would have surely missed me. Who else would keep them in line? Thanks again to all!
Krueger is doing much better; he’s starting to act like his old self again. Thank you so much for everything you guys did for him and my family. I truly appreciate it. Thanks again
Thank you so much for helping D.J. and I, we really appreciate it! We all hope to have him back to normal again real soon. We wish you happy holidays and joyous New Year!

Dear VCS Staff;
Thank you for the compassionate care you provided to Pollo after his run-in with a foster greyhound. He has improved significantly since being stuck on his belly in an aquarium. He gradually began to sit up and use his legs, and now he is able to perch again. He is in a modified cage with soft floor because still isn’t 100 percent yet. His right leg and foot work better than his left, but he is now walking and using his beak only occasionally to pull himself. He loved all the spoiling and attention he got while recovering and his happy spirit has not faltered. Thank you for all your love and attention!

To My Friends at VCS;
Five months ago, when I was only eight weeks old, I was mauled by a large dog. I came to see you and you nursed me back to a point that I could go home. A week later I came down with a parvo and everyone thought I might not make it. I’m going on six months now and I would have never made it without your help and love. Thank you for giving me that chance for a great life! My whole family will be forever thankful! Happy holidays.
Hope this Christmas season is filled with all your favorite things! Happy holidays.
Thank you so much for your kindness and compassion to our dog Bud. He was a wonderful dog and your treatment of him was much appreciated.

Dr. Hass and the wonderful staff at VCS;
Thank you for all you kindness and support this past year in treating Devil and Papa. Being considered exotic pets, no other clinic was willing to see them or help in a time with emergency with Devil’s amputation. You and your staff were compassionate and willing to assist the tiniest members of our family. As you know we adopted Papa and his two sons from Earl in 2003 and Devil as a baby in 2005. Papa was up in years and unfortunately passed just recently but without your care we wouldn’t of had him around till now. Thank you for all you’ve done, your hard work and dedication is very much appreciated.
-Mr. and Mrs. Dainell Janette

We just wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of Bubba when she was hospitalized. Bubba is doing great, her progress surprised me. Everyone there seemed to take good care of her and we really appreciate it, even when she was crabby in the beginning. Thanks again!
May all the seeds of kindness that you’ve spread along the way return to you and multiply on this, your special day! Happy Birthday Julie! We hope you have a wonderful day!
-Love, Carlos, Gia and Bear

Dr. Hass and Mr. Barnes;
After reading the Livingston County Daily Press argues about your wonderful donation of the breathing aid for pets. I wanted to write to you and send to you the awake magazine “Pets How Do You View Them?” It is such a wonderful help for firefighters to be protected from bites and scratches. We would like to tell you thanks for your help to animals and firefighters.
-Sincerely, Mrs. Fraski
“Boy! I am one lucky guy! Glad to be home, resting comfortably and I want to send lots of heartfelt thanks to all of you at VCS for all the tender loving care you all gave me while I was your patient. Thank you so much!
Dear Peter, Julie & all at VCS,
Just a short thank you note to say how much we appreciate your care of our rescue Bully's. Without your wonderful services we would be lost and the dogs would be much worse off.
Thank you, thank you!!

"Thanks" - I know that does not cover all you do(and for me personally)
You put to sleep my cat Buttercup. I know he was in a lot of pain. He hung in for me for a year, but he was ready to give up.
God will look over people like you.
I am still not over it yet and I'm starting to cry again and do whenever I think about it. I hope you can read this, as I say, I am still upset.
Also, I hope you can read between the lines of how I appreciate your generosity and work.
I still ahve 4 more cats but they can never take the place of Buttercup, the dearest I had.
Your kindness and generosity will always be remembered.
