“Dr. Sullivan, Thanks so much for your kindness and understanding with me and my horse Buddy. You and your staff made it easy for me to let him go. I don’t understand a lot about EPM but Buddy’s last few days were hard, watching him go down so fast. I pray one day there will be a cure or vaccine for this. Again, thank you and your staff. We were blessed to have you as our vet. God Bless You All!”~ submitted by Sullivan clients David and Sue Trichelle
