First of all, great post and wonderful ending to a sad story!
Secondly, i agree with everything the poster said about Dr. Kim, and the whole staff at Marine City Animal Hospital. My small puppy has been with them since the beginning and there is NO one else I would feel comfortable going to. They are so dedicated and obviously care so much for animals. If you board your animal there you know it will be showered with affection, safe, and happy. Please, if you have a dog or cat and are looking for a vet, pay this clinic a visit! If you are planning on taking your dog back to your home country, they even provide you with a "puppy passport" for them, which they update throughout your time here with their various shots/treatments etc. I love Marine City :-)
