I want everyone at BREC to know that Tabby is THE best vet you could possibly have. Not only does she take wonderful care of my beloved horses and truly cares about them and is so extremely competent. I know she spent far more time with my gang than she had intended but that did not deter her one bit to stay with me to make sure all was well. AND she works so hard. You all probably don’t remember that when I first arrived in Va. Jargy was definitely not himself. Two vets told me to put him to pasture he was old. Finally I got ahold of and Tabby who recognized that it was EPM and we started him on medication right away. She saved Jargy’s life. I can tell you all I wouldn’t have another vet ever.

Please pass on to Dr. Stephens, Dr. Trostle, Dr. Simon and Dr. Fouse that Alzine was peacefully laid to rest on Sunday afternoon in the field behind the barn that she was born in. Please let all of them know how much I appreciate their utmost efforts and care of her during her stay there. Your organization is truly extraordinary. Even though the outcome was not what we had hoped, I would not have done anything different. I needed to know that everything possible was done to save her, and the professionalism and knowledge of the team at BREC helped me come to the ultimate conclusion that letting her go was the best thing for her. Many tears were shed when we came to pick her up on Sunday, and I truly appreciated the empathy felt by Dr. Trostle, Susie, and Dr. Simon.
A heartfelt thank you for the tremendous work your team performed on Sprout and Lulu. The past 2 weeks have been an education for me on the vast medical resources available at BREC. I truly realized the extent and depth of veterinary talents within your organization. I feel totally blessed knowing you are there for me and my equines.
Thank you so much for hosting the dinner and informative seminar last night. I really enjoyed the time learning cutting edge information and getting to spend time visiting with fellow horse people. It makes me very appreciative of all the knowledge you have made available to us. It is very comforting to know you all are here and ready to help when we need you.

Thank you for your care of all of our horses (and other critters!). It means so much to us that you care about them as much as we do! They are all special – and the compassion and tenderness you showed for Kitzia made something that is so difficult much easier to handle. Thank you so much for taking such good care of everyone for us!
J.T. and I wanted to thank you again for your time and expertise yesterday. We were so impressed with how you worked with Sunny and how you were able to deliver sad news in such a gentle way. I am also thankful that your clinic has the capability to make this type of diagnostics mobile because I would have hated to transport him in his weakened condition. The Valley is so fortunate to have your clinic available.
My daughter’s entire world is wrapped around George and everyone there treated him with as much love and TLC as if he was their own. Dr. Stephens and his entire crew were wonderful to us. He was always available to answer questions and offer support and on the days we couldn’t be there we would get photos and cute messages from Jaime. As much I don’t want to ever be in the situation of needing to come back, I would love to be able to see the crew again! Great people you have there in Charlottesville!
Thank you) for saving Smoochie (thanks Dr. Santos!), caring for him over Christmas (thanks Dr. Kaplan!), being so kind to him (thanks Ethnie!), and putting up with me and Julie (thanks Dana and Alice!).
I know that others were involved, so thank you all very much. Smoochie is already acting more like mischievous (and very loveable and affectionate) boy he is.
Not every day since we’ve had him — but nearly every day – he seems to give a look right in the eyes of gratefulness that he has a home. He’s looked very grateful ever since coming back from BREC. He seems to understand that something very serious happened, which may account for how relatively well-behaved he’s been so far since being home.
Upon Smoochie’s getting back home, former BREC patient Earl stoodoutside Smoochie’s stall for an hour. Then I remembered how Smoochie would stand outside Earl’s stall after his surgery, so I think Earl was paying him back for the companionship.
So, thank you all!
Everyone was extremely nice and helpful. Logan enjoyed his stay.
Thank you so much, Anne, for your speedy reply and your consideration for giving me a little education in the process. This, along with the wonderful Dr. Hecking is the reason I want to be your customer! You all have a wonderful day.
Also had a great experience last time. I would not change a thing.
Please pass my sincere thanks along. The staff was wonderful and made a very difficult time bearable. Dr. Trostle did a really good job giving me the data points to make decisions. And Dr. Phillips was absolutely wonderful in dealing with all my daily questions and concerns.
Please pass my thanks along to everyone.

Thank you very much for the excellent care the BREC staff provided. Please pass along my thanks to Dr. Trostle and most especially the LVTs and staff who took care of Baby Hope!
I just want to thank you guys for all the great care and excellent service that you gave me and Phoenix. You guys always came whenever we needed you. It didn’t matter if it was on the weekend or late at night. You always came. You were also very caring – sending emails or making calls just to check on how things were going.
I cannot think of a thing (to improve). I was very apprehensive re: my horse’s condition and outcome. Everyone understood and did everything possible to accomodate me to ensure a positive outcome and minimize my concern for my horse. It was a great experience…
Thank you so much for your excellent care and compassion shown to Zack and me during our visits to the clinic over the past few months. He is such a sensitive guy, and I love him so much – you made a scary and difficult time so much easier to bear. I always know my animals are safe in your hands! I hope you all know how grateful I am.

My trainer and the wonderful people who keep Jewel said that when they arrived at your clinic with Jewel last week, they felt like they were bringing in the President!!! You all were so on the ball and took charge so quickly!
