My wife, Cathy, was distraught, to say the least. “She’s my favorite chicken, something’s wrong, she’s dying,” she cried. “Perfect,” I thought, as I placed the coals neatly in the Weber. I hadn’t had a beer-can chicken for ages, and suddenly I had the craving. Already almost tasting my favorite culinary delight, the situation began to deteriorate as a truck raced up the road and slid into the driveway in a cloud of dust; it was Dr. Lindsay Crowley.
“You’re kiddin’ me: a vet? For a chicken? Really?” I said, as my wife raced out to intercept Dr. Crowley at her truck. Faster than a beagle on a bunny, Cathy whisked her away to the chicken coop where a brief consultation took place with more cackling than is usually heard from the coop. In a scene out of one of those disaster movies, Dr. Crowley emerged from the coop with her patient dangling upside-down and rushed toward me. Stopping at the picnic table, Dr. Crowley laid my dinner on its back in her lap, as she reached into a bag. The chicken, eyes closed and motionless, was obviously deceased. I fired up the coals.
“Cool,” I thought, as she pulled out some sort of fancy knife-type implement thingy, “She’s going to clean it for me.” I raced into the house to grab a beer, the main ingredient required for the afore mentioned beer-can chicken. I popped the top, took a swig, and returned outside to an unmentionable horror. Cathy and Dr. Crowley were hugging as my chicken dinner was nonchalantly walking away, pecking at the ground, as if nothing had happened. EPILOG: The next day, Cathy’s hen laid an egg. Beer can scrambled eggs? I may have discovered something?
Mt. Laramie Veterinary Services and Lindsay Crowley DVM are very professional, compassionate and understanding of their clients needs. Dr. Crowley has a compassion for the animals and an understanding of her clients needs both medically and monetarily that I very much appreciate.
Dr. Crowley does an excellent job of creating a relationship with the animals prior to treatment which helps the animals trust her as she is working with them. Dr. Crowley has an excellent understanding of her profession and is an excellent diagnostician. She has worked with some of my horses who are BLM mustangs. My one mare is not handled much and Dr. Lindsay was able to use her soft quiet manner to begin the diagnose without even haltering the horse. I was very impressed with the relationship she created with her.
Dr. Crowley is a excellent Veterinarian with a heart of gold. I can really say she cares about the animals and their health and wellbeing. I highly recommend Dr. Crowley and Mt. Laramie Veterinary Services. I am very grateful Dr. Crowley set up her practice in the Anza Valley. The Valley is a better place because of Dr. Crowley’s Veterinary Practice.
Thank you Dr.Crowley.
