A huge thank you for all of you, that took the time to share your experience. Your effort and warm words keeps us going!
"Dear Dr Gold, I just wanted to take the time to thank you so much for your loving care and attention to our dog, Beau, and my family in our time of need.
We were the family visiting for Thanksgiving when it became obvious our pet's long-standing illness had become too much to bear. You were there for us and provided your home office so that the 4 of us could be with Beau at his demise. Everything was handled so humanely and compassionately. We all felt closure.
I was especially touched when we received your sympathy card with the enclosed cast of Beau's paw-print.
You are a very special person and we really appreciate you.
Debra S., MD and family"
"I just want to say thank you for coming into my life right when you did. I
knew this time in my pets' lives was coming, but I had no idea how much more
gentle and humane it could be. Of course I'm sad about Play-doh, but I'm at
peace with this natural conclusion to our story. Think of me as providing her
hospice rather than trying to prolong her life. It's been a fabulous one for
her and I shall dote on her even more during her final days with me, whether
that's two more weeks or one more year. Keeping her happy and as comfortable as
I can will be my goal. When the quality of life isn't there for her anymore,
she'll let me know and I'll give you a call.
Thanks again for being there for me, and thanks for the definite diagnosis
for my girl. I'll spoil her silly in the coming days for sure. Love,
Kathy & Ben Y.:
"Our seventeen years old horse ,Ana had injured her back two month ago . Her regular vet advised us to put her down, due to the nature of her injury and age. We knew there was nothing that could be done for her, from regular western medicine aspects, but we had to seek out all options, before letting her go. I knew Dr. Gold has been treating my mom’s Pony for over a year now, and watching the difference in him, we decided to ask her advice, and we are so happy we did. Dr.Gold did six acupuncture treatments for Ana, and also gave us herbs to give her. We did not know how Ana will response to be needled, but she seemed to be very calm during the acupuncture treatments, already from the first one and pain free, for the first time in weeks. After the second treatment, Ana was very happy to see Dr.Gold approaching, like if she knew she is going to help her. And today, for the first since the injury, she ran out to the hay and did a little happy, jumping maneuver.

"I have a Dachshund named Gibbs that one day lost all movement in his back legs. I took him to the vet & had x-rays done showing that there were problems in his back.
My vet told me that Gibbs would have to have surgery costing several thousand dollars & no guarantees. Then I thought about acupuncture. It took me a while to find Dr. Gold, and I am so thankful I have! She is FANTASTIC.
Gibbs was almost always lying down, when Dr. Gold started Acupuncture with him, after two weeks, He already followed us back upstairs, something he has not done for two years! we knew Acupuncture was great, but we were still very much amazed with the results. Gibbs is now walking, running & being his normal self. I am so glad I thought about the acupuncture & had Dr. Gold treat my Gibbs. Anyone I talk to that has a dachshund know the issues they have with their back. I am so happy he did not have to go through surgery eventually".
"I LOVE Dr.Gold! I was so happy to find a vet who would come to the house because getting my cats to the vet had become traumatic for my cats as well as for me...at A House Call Vet they are able to do just about anything you do at the office, at the same price, and all done in the comfort of your home... so much less stressful for me! I was little nervous about having vet examining my cats at home, did not know how the cats will behave, if they will run away,etc, since they tend to turn feral, at the Vet's office. But Dr. Gold has such a calm approach, my cats were warming up to her in two minutes, I was really surprised. We were even able to do blood work for Mandy, who is my 14 years old, very scared cat. All together it took less time than going to the office, waiting etc. Dr. Gold is a real find- so attentive and patient, she really loves animals and it shows. I think pets can sense it too, since my cats, that DO NOT go to anyone, sat on her laps, purring by the end of the visit!" Valery & Dan K.:
"On November 1st, 2012 my little Terrier, Henry, died quietly in our home (not on a stainless steel table in the place he dreaded most) and in my arms left this world. He wasn't frightened, he was peacfull, in the yard, on his favorite bench. There was no fear or panic, I held him close, at his favorite cuddle spot and we said good bye.
Thank You Dr. Gold,
All the best, Val."
“We were on vacation in Hawaii, when our tenants contacted us with bad news about one of our dogs, Molly. They said she is extremely painful, laying down most of the time, crying constantly during the night and every time she tries to reach her food, she was hurting. We could not find any veterinarian to come to our farm, and being all the way in Hawaii we were extremely stressed. My wife was crying, we were sure we are going to lose Molly. Then we found Dr. Gold and Dr. Shmueli, from “A HouseCall Vet”. They listen to the symptoms we described then called and spoke with our tenants too. They calmed us down and told us they will be there ASAP. It was an immediate relief for us, from feeling helplless to know there is someone we can trust. After Molly was evaluated, Dr. Gold called us with the recommended treatment plan, explaining patiently the reason behind every test and treatment.
Dr. Gold treated Molly with Acupuncture. Having gone through Acupuncture treatments herself, my wife was very pleased to find a Vet that is certified and trained in Alternative medicine. Molly was feeling better that day already, our tenants went for shopping and when they came back, they called us excited, since Molly was waiting for them next to the gate, wagging her tail, something she has not done in a long time. When we got home, two days later, Molly was still improving, and now, after one more Acupuncture treatment, she is 100% healthy. We are especially pleased to have achieved such results, without using steroids or other harsh drugs. We will always appreciate Dr. Gold and Shmueli prompt response, kindness and proficiency, and feel very lucky to have them treated our Molly”.
"Had an excellent experience with A Housecall vet and Dr. Gold. Dr. Gold was very nice and informative over the phone. She came to our house at the agreed time, very well organized and equipped. I had many questions and she was very patient answering all of them and explaining. My three dogs and two cats felt very comfortable next to her, right from the beginning. She drew blood from my older dog, very quickly and without any discomfort to my dog. and gave me her most probable diagnosis. The morning after, Dr. Gold gave me a call and went over the blood work with me. She was right from the beginning regarding the medical condition Daisy suffered from. I had such a wonderful experience; I only wish I knew before about her and the option of veterinary service at home".

"Thank you so much for your loving, gentle care of Sami this year. You gave us 8 extra months with him, which allowed us to say good bye in our own time. He was larger than life and the 8 months he lived under your care allowed him to be his obnoxious self. We miss him, but are grateful for the extra time.
Best regards, George"
"I Cannot thank Dr. Gold enough! My 10 year old German Shepard mix, Cupper, was in declining health when I moved here. I didn't have a vet and he was petrified with even the prospect of setting foot into an office until, Dr. Gold. Cupper was at ease right away. Coming to the house eliminated the stress of an office visit, any tests that were performed had immediate results as well as the Dr. keeping in constant contact to be updated on his progress. Cupper now greets Dr. Gold with happy wags and gladly walks up to her! There is no question that Dr. Gold has a special gift with animals. She is very sincere, and genuinely has a love for her job and the animals she works with. She understands the stress of the owners
and immediately puts the entire situation at ease. Thank You So Much!....you truly have a wonderful gift and now Cupper does too!
"This was a very sad Thanksgiving for us. We had all the family gathered together at our house for
dinner, had family guest and kids running around. Sunny, our 15 years old Golden Retriever is usually the center of the family events, preferred to be at his bed, completely indifferent to food or attention. We knew something was very
wrong when in the morning after Sunny could not even walk, and would barely move his head. We called his regular vet, and asked them about a house call service for Sunny, we could not tolerate putting him to sleep at any other place than at
home. The Vet office recommended Dr. Gold, from a House Call Vet. The only bright part in this horrible time was our incredibly good fortune we had to find Dr. Gold to help us through this process. She came after only half an hour and
spent an enormous amount of time with Sunny and displayed unflagging patience and professionalism. She helped in every possible way to make this dreaded day tolerable. It could have been so much harder without her kindness and
compassion. We felt that it would be a an additional suffering for him to be taken to a clinic, the fact that he was as comfortable as possible during his last few hours was everything we wanted for him. We encourage anyone at the same situation to call Dr. Gold, She is extraordinary in her professionalism and her compassion.
We shall be forever indebted to her".
