Vet did all he couldto help sick kittenI work at Colorado Animal Rescue and have recently been bottle-feeding three 2-week-old kittens. On Friday, Aug. 20, at 11 p.m., one of them vomited and began having a seizure. I called the new veterinary clinic, Divide Creek Animal Hospital, and spoke with Dr. Langegger. After I told him what happened, he told me to bring Fabio, the kitten, down to the clinic. He met me at the interstate so Fabio could be seen sooner, and he informed me that his lungs were very congested and he was on death’s door. Neither he nor I believed Fabio would make it.Dr. Langegger took him to the clinic, gave him antibiotics and warm fluids and then let the kitten sleep. I called him the next morning, and he let me know Fabio had survived the night. Fabio had woken him up at 3 in the morning, screaming from starvation. Fabio is now very healthy and will soon be ready for a great new home.I would like to let everyone know that Dr. Langegger went way beyond the call of duty. He did everything in his power to help this one little kitten. I want to tell anyone who is looking for a regular vet or an emergency vet that Dr. Langegger is extremely dedicated to helping animals. I feel he is a perfect example of what a veterinarian should be.Heather MartinRifle
