I rushed Cooper to this vet after my regular vet told me on the phone to take him to the emergency vet asap. A friend recommended this place to me over the emergency vet closest to our house. Cooper was in pain and the people at The COVE immediately took him back for an exam while I filled out the paperwork. Unfortunately, our boy had tumors and internal bleeding from a ruptured spleen. The vet gave us all the medical details and her recommendation. On the worst day of our life, everyone at The COVE was compassionate and caring as we made the decision to help Cooper pass to the Rainbow Bridge. They made him comfortable as I waited with him for the rest of the family to arrive to say our goodbyes. We were there for several hours. The day is kind of a blur, but I would definitely recommend this vet, and I will come back for any other emergency care for our pets. We opted for a cremation so a couple of days later we returned for his remains. Nansemond Crematory made plaster paw prints and our boy’s ashes were in a beautiful wooden box with his name on it. The COVE even sent a sympathy card that all the employees signed.
