Lincoln was diagnosed with a liver shunt after surgery when he was 13 weeks old. That was 5 years ago. Lincoln has lived a great life, blessed many people and has enriched my life beyond words.

Lincoln was certified CGC at 10mths, agility at a year, has done pirnt ad work, a Time Warner spot on Austin Pets and won Austin's first hippie hound contest!... There isn't a day that I don't think of Dr. Kerpsack and his ability to save our precious pet. I am forever grateful.



vinnyDr. Kerpsack - I wanted to drop you a note to say Thank You for restoring Vinny's quality of life. Vinny is my 6 year old wirehaired Dachshund. After being diagnosed with IVDD he was experiencing classic symptoms of this disorder and was placed on crate rest for 4 weeks in an attempt to avoid surgery. Two weeks into his crate rest he began losing motor function in his lower extremeties. I took him in on a Saturday night and they had him scheduled for spinal surgery with you the next morning. I visited Vinny each day during his 3 day hospitalization and noticed immediate improvement. I continued his crate rest for 4 more weeks at home and he is now functioning as well as he was before his diagnosis. Again, my family and I cannot thank you enough for giving Vinny back to us and letting him enjoy a pain free
life once again. Dave B

Dear Dr. Kerpsack,
We wanted to thank you again for giving Mini a quality life for many years.  You performed successful knee surgery for Mini in Sept 2006 and she passed on Feb 23, 2011.  She was very well and very strong until she died suddenly in the early morning hours last Wednesday.  She was 11 years and 2 months old.  We are very thankful for the quality of life she had after her operation and for the care your staff provided.   If you recall, we drove from Wichita, Kansas back to Austin to have her surgery because we were so impressed with your practice and facility.  We will continue to recommend any pets we know to be in need of your services to your practice.

Sincerely, Cheryl, Rey, Zeny and Philip C.

Dear Dr. Kerpsack - Milo is feeling great. He had a haircut today and is enjoying his recovery. He's been eating a lot and we started walking him the day after his confinement (28 days!). He really was amazingly well behaved for the 28, but over joyed to be let out . You have the most amazing hands! Thank you for fixing Milo. Lulo Lopez and Joe Dugan.

Our animal rescue group pulled “Grant” from the city’s shelter after he was surrendered by his owners. Grant’s owners gave him up because they did not want to pay for diagnostics to determine why he was hunchbacked and constantly howling in pain. “We already spent $4K to import him here from Russia.”

Taking in this special needs dog as a foster, I took him directly to CTVSH. There, we learned Grant had a severe spinal infection. He was immediately placed on medication in an effort to avoid surgery. With much comfort & assurance, the absolutely amazing staff cared for Grant as though he was their own.

Ultimately, Grant did require the spinal surgery. As a result of a successful entrapped nerve root repair operation, a more than year of checkups & x-rays, and daily medication, Grant’s infection has completely cleared. I ended up adopting this special boy – after the time and attention spent to bring him to good, I just couldn’t imagine him being anyplace else. I can say with great confidence that CTVSH provides the best care, timely updates, and kind consideration to both owners and dogs.

I trust CTVSH completely and strongly believe in their ability to successfully treat even the most difficult cases – like my Grant Man. “Grant” and I are both grateful to Dr. Stephanie Beardsley and her wonderful staff for saving his life! With much respect and appreciation, Courtney & Grant
