Thank you to your team for the amazing care and communication. I didn't get to say it on pickup — but it's clear how much work your team puts into client communication ❤ Every moment of communication with your team was empathetic and positive. It made this so much easier to endure and navigate and it didn't go unnoticed. I know the vet industry has been utterly overwhelmed the last few years, but y'all were top notch — never adding external stress to an already stressful ordeal. Thank you again for your kindness, care and service! Thank you again ❤❤❤
I cannot say enough great things about Oregon Veterinary Specialty Hospital Hyperthyroid Clinic and their team of caring kitty professionals! Our cat, Charlie, received radioactive iodine treatment, I-131, for hyperthyroidism on 1/9/23. Dr. Decker and her team were amazing from start to finish! Charlie is cured, happy and is purring again. Dr. Decker remains available for consultation with our regular veterinarian as Charlie receives his follow-up check ups. I would say to anyone who is a bit overwhelmed with the details of having their cat undergo radioactive iodine treatment, you don't need to worry as Dr. Decker and the veterinary technicians are top-notch. They will walk you through each step of the process. While it can be difficult to be away from your kitty family member while they are hospitalized, the vet techs provide a caring environment and keep you informed with how your cat is doing. I am grateful to the entire team that Charlie's quality of life has been improved as well as his longevity, since he is now cured of hyperthyroidism. He suffers from a chronic eye condition that now has almost resolved due to his thyroid problem being corrected, which is a bonus! Thank you, Dr. Decker and team, for your commitment to helping our furry feline family members live their best quality of lives!
Doctor Decker and her team are fantastic. Throughout the entire process of I-131 they explained everything thoroughly and answered all the questions that I had. My cat doesn't like other cats at all, and they were able to accommodate her needs. The room where she stayed also has a big window with a nice view she was able to enjoy while she was there. When she came home, she was her normal, happy self, and almost immediately returned to her regular routine. Doctor Decker and the entire I-131 staff were kind, knowledgeable and communicated clearly from the first consult all the way through the discharge and follow up exams. I am very glad I brought my cat in to see them.
Sophie is a special case that came to our clinic after the owners tried to get help for her aggressive hyperthyroidism for over a year. We were able to treat this wonderful girl within a few weeks of the owner contacting us. She did not tolerate her methimazole medication and was quite debilitated by her disease. She needed high dose radioiodine for her suspected thyroid cancer. Sophie’s disease has been cured, she’s gaining weight and is recovering well at home with her family that loves her. My husband, Marcus and I would ‘shout off the rooftops’ about our amazing experiences with the Oregon Veterinary Specialty Hospital...Dr. Diane Decker and her amazing, compassionate staff (Mindy, Meadow and Jackson) gave our kitty, Sophie, her Life back...Sophie suffered from severe hyperthyroid and using I-131 treatment (radioiodine) she is now successfully recovering! These are highly skilled professionals who LOVE CATS...we are so very grateful...💚🐈
