Our family has been a huge fan of Dr Julie for as long as we have known her. (She was our vet for several animals in Camarillo). Recently, my beloved Rottweiler, age 8, was struggling with growths & tremendous pain. The local vet did many tests, each “not conclusive”. It finally appeared hopeless, and cancer was the presumed diagnosis. She was suffering. We scheduled the appointment to put her down in the afternoon, but, oddly, I decided to call Julie in Tn for any input. She was compassionate, but totally practical and did not hesitate. The result of acting on her advice gave our Girl immediate relief and 3 months of quality life before we had to surrender. Another story: About 24 years ago, she helped us try to place our irritable 3 legged dog, Reba. We needed a new home for her because our young son was crawling and, sadly, she had become a hazard to the baby. When we could find no-one willing after exhaustive efforts, Julie was almost as heart sick as us to put her down. The condolence card we got was beyond compassionate: every tiny space was covered in kind words acknowledging Reba’s life, her value, how we did the right thing for her and the baby. Dr Julie Clark is experienced, kind, generous of heart, committed, and highly competent.

Thanks so much for the kind words Karen! I’d completely forgotten about poor Reba (it wasn’t her fault that she was so touchy and unpredictable.) Though there’s clearly a lot of joy to be had from loving a pet, there also can be a lot of pain. The best thing about being a vet is being able to share that joy and pain with incredible people (like yourself and your family) who adore their pets and care for them with all their hearts. Thanks so much for being such a great friend all these years.
