      My super senior (14 yo) Weimaraner was seen by Dr. Schmitt as a second opinion for neck and face swelling that was not resolving. The original vet we had seen said there was not much to do for her and that she was at her end. Dr. Schmitt took time to check her and explained the options. My Weimaraner continued to get worse and Dr. Schmitt did not give up. Finally, by working together, we got the swelling down. Thank you to the caring staff and Dr. Schmitt for giving me more time with my sweet girl.
