Dr. Deb Littell and Riverside Animal Hospital has been a life saver for us. Literally! When we got Emma, she was 8 weeks old. She kept getting sick and by the time she was a year old, I really didn't think that we would have her much longer. We spent thousands of dollars by this time and I talked to many different vets besides that one we had then. No one helped her at all.
Then I found Dr. Deb when Emma was about a year old. I can't tell you how much time she put in figuring out what was wrong. I've never met a more compassionate, dedicated person. Emma is almost 6 years old now, and is a happy, healthy dog. She is off all of her medications except for her allergies.

Dr. Deb and her staff are not only wonderful with Emma, but are patient with me! (I'm not sure that's not an even bigger challenge than Emma's health issues sometimes). The employee's at Riverside are pretty wonderful as well. Their love and dedication to their patients is obvious. Emma loves to go in to visit her friends there. (There is always petting, treat and/or kind words involved).

There is no doubt in my mind that Dr. Deb saved Emma's life and we can never thank her enough for that!

Any animal with Dr. Deb and her staff at Riverside as their caregivers is lucky indeed!
