In Memory Of Jiggs


In Memory of Jiggs, My "Big Lion Cub"

I am sending a picture of Jiggs, my "big lion cub" that  I took less than two weeks before he went downhill.  He looks so good, and happy still. And up until that Saturday even, he was still the loving cat he always was. But, when a lion cub stops eating you know trouble is near, and in his way those last three days he was trying to tell me.

I will never forget the rough kitty kisses or the pats to my face with those big paws of his. He shared himself with me and everyone who came by. The house feels empty now, especially the kitchen without my Jiggs' box waiting by his food bowl.  It just doesn't seem right not having his shoe box on the counter taking up space.  I even miss him watching me like a hawk when I am cooking, never could trust him not to sample the food as it cooked.  He never cared if things bothered his finicky stomach, he just liked to eat.

Again and as always, the staff at Tri-City are so good.  It was so hard last Saturday to bring my "big lion cub" to you.  I am so thankful, when the time came he went quick and that I had such a caring place to bring him.  Dr. Coffman was so good and gentle with him.

Thanks for all you and the staff do, during the good and the bad times. It is a comfort to be with people, God's people,  who have been given tender hearts for our animal friends. Would never think of being anywhere else.   

Take care, Cathy

Care That Stands Out

  • Tri-city has a great team of doctors and technicians that truly care about the health of your animals and understand that a pet is part of the family. We appreciate their expertise, professionalism, and that they go the extra mile to connect with our pets.
  • I've been visiting Tri-City since 2019 for my small animals - namely domestic rats - and have nothing but praise for it's doctors. They have helped me with everything from chronic illness treatments to end of life care, and have a wonderful staff with experience in small animal handling. If you're looking for a cozy, wonderful vet for your rat/guinea/other exotic pet, then this is the place.
  • This has been our family vet for 23 years. We have seen many of the different vets on staff. They all have been friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate, including the support staff. They even made a house call when our dog was too sick to make the trip. They offer grooming and have a full pharmacy.

  • Tri-City recently figured out a really difficult health issue affecting my pug. Looking for a vet that has all the answers. Stop looking. This is where you want to take your best friend.

  • This place is awesome, vet techs are professional, everyone is nice, Dr. King is incredible with animals. My dog has pretty bad anxiety and she always get down on the floor and makes them feel so comfortable. Prices are reasonable, and they offer online medical history now which is awesome.
