This is great! What a marvelous idea. The article does not mention if the
hospital will be open 24-hours a day... I certainly hope so, and would assume it
would be. There are very few pet emergency clinics that are open 24-hours, and
accidents and illnesses don't always happen during normal hours during the day.
The article doesn't mention the name of the hospital either...
Finally! What great news. I just wish they were also treating horses at this
facility. This place is definately large enough to do so. Still, this will be
a great business for our community.
What a joke. While we can't provide health care for humans and people are
dieing in ER waiting rooms there is no a hospital for pets. The same freeks who
complain about global warming are the ones with all the pets. A medium sized
dog puts out the same amount of CO2 every year as a ford explorer driven 15
miles every day. Its time for a pet quota and pet taxes.
Poor Curtis. He seems like an angry person who has no idea what many benefits
pets bring to humans. Apparently he hasn't heard of pet licensing and the 2-dog
quota already in place either in many parts of the city/state. Or noticed the
dozens of veterinary facilities already in our midst. Veterinary medicine is
nothing new. Get your facts straight before you spew off false information. I'd
like to know where you got the information about the comparison to a pet and the
Ford Explorer emissions.I am very much concerned and educated about
global warming and I have two pets. I also have a hybrid car, use a push reel
lawnmower, don't use my clothes dryer much, buy local and organic produce, don't
use pesticides or herbicides in my yard (BECAUSE I have pets), use re-usable
shopping bags at the grocery store instead of paper or plastic... I could go on.
I don't just complain and do nothing, I act. Unlike many people.Responsible pet owners have big hearts and care about someone besides
themselves and realize what great benefits having a pet has on their lives. This
hospital is indeed a wonderful addition to our community.
I hope they add a play area!
This is fabulous news! Where we used to have to drive to Colorado or Las Vegas,
now we'll be able to see veterinary specialists right here in Salt Lake. I'm
As a new mommy of a 5 month old Great Dane, this is WONDERFUL news! Great Danes
are prone to some serious health conditions, like bloat or stomach torsion that
can take a Great Dane's life in just hours. So for me personally, it's an
extreme comfort to know that there will be a facility that can handle my sweet
girl if this should ever happen to her. From the looks of it, this place is no
joke, and seems like they would only employ the best of the best. I'm looking
forward to checking this place out!
