The LIFECentre Emergency & Specialty Veterinary Care

The LIFECentre Emergency & Specialty Veterinary Care


On December 9th, our beloved Caesar crossed the bridge into heaven, leaving us completely heart broken. He went into the local vet for a routine neuter and was tragically taken from us. The chief veterinarian of a popular vet in Springfield, VA botched his surgery by removing the wrong organ and blocking blood supply to his bladder. He endured two days of unimaginable pain before we were told what happened, minutes before his death.

We wake up to an emptiness that cannot be described. He was my faithful companion who brought love, laughter, and purpose into my life. At this time, we desperately need love from our community. In his memory, please join us for a socially distanced candlelight vigil with your loved ones. Candles will be provided; please feel free to bring your own.

My big baby boy will be in your care starting tomorrow. I know you’re the best of the best. Thank you in advance for caring for my Gunnar ❀️
Thank you to Dr.'s Taylor, McChesney and all the staff at VSC in Leesburg for taking such good care of our pug Mille. She had three mast cell tumors removed yesterday and came home this afternoon. Millie looks forward to a normal recovery along side her twin brother Rocky and her baby sister Bella.
This place really has take care of my Bobo I appreciate all the time and effort they put into bobo ,, the staff is always so pleasant

After a ruptured hernia operation on a 14 year old fur baby, I would say we are blessed!
you folks take on small bunnies that have been forced out of their home?
fenced in back yard, my dog got into a nest --- putting it back probably wont help matters
Thanks for everything you did to try and save Doc Smallz. ❀🐈🐾
Please take the best of care with Doc Smalz he is a very special kitty
I just wanted to thank you for the care you're giving to my friend Jf's cat Smallz.I know everyone there and Jf of course are doing all you can for him. God bless you and be safe.
Please, please, please let Jf Richards bring Franklin Farmcat in to visit Doc Smallz. They are best friends and we all know that if Smallz sees Franklin, that would definitely help with Smallz depression. There is just something about Franklin that makes him the best medicine in these kind of situations. Did I also mention that groundhog ointment may help, lol.
Thank you for taking care of Doc Smallz. He is a very special kitty and Dat Dad Jf loves him very much.
Much love and appreciation for you compassion.
Just wanted to say thank you for all you are doing for Doc Smallz Richards. We love him and all his brothers and sisters and dat dadz, Jf Richards You will never find a more loving and devoted cat daddy . We all stand with him. Doc Smallz has alot of his own followers , I think its do to those sexy droopy eyes and his unique gray color. God bless each and every one in this place and know, you are truly loved.
