"Ruger just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you guys.  (Every day of our lives)  We have been keeping up with all the craziness that Dr. Impellizeri is doing.  Research, vaccines, cancer cures, etc.  He is amazing.  Congrats on your new location.  It sure seems that you guys are extremely busy.  But if not for that, our Ruger wouldn't be here.  We want  to thank you for the wonderful summer he has been able to share with us and his brother.  He has not skipped a beat and we thank you guys for every minute of it.  I hope you all are well and had some time to enjoy the crazy hot weather.  Ruger sends love to Sara.   We love you all!!!"


"I am sorry to be writing to you let you know that Tasha passed away on July 12. Her birthday was February 2, 2000 so she was almost 15 1/2 years old, which is a ripe old age for a golden retriever. As far as we know, she did not die of any illness but of old age. She was quite well for a long time, but got very, very weak the last few weeks of her life.

Thank you for all of the help that you provided us with and Dr. Joe for curing her of the cancer. Please tell Dr. Joe."

"Dear Dr. Impellizeri, I just wanted to thank you for the expert care and unequaled medical treatments Nice Girl received under your watchful eye and expertise.  I am so grateful that Dr. Baez directed me to your cancer center where you are doing amazing work that other veterinary oncologists would never have the courage to try.  I am in awe over what you are achieving.  You gave us hope and that has meant the world to me.  Thank you for everything you did for my sweet girl."-Diane P.


"Is it OK to have Maisey groomed this weekend? She is usually bathed, ears cleaned, anal sacs expressed and trimmed. The groomer is excellent and will be cautious of the stitches or any directions you have. If you prefer she not be groomed I will cancel the appointment. My daughter Amanda wanted to especially thank Dr. Impellizeri for so patiently and completely helping us understand our options to help Maisey. I am also grateful to you all for you kindness, patience and for what you do!" -Martin M.
