I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. Rybka. This is the second time he has advised me with issues on my Morkie. He is kind, smart, logical and most importantly, he cares. He takes the time to review records I have sent and explains everything along with his opinion. Which I value beyond words. I highly recommend anyone reaching out for his opinion if you have any concerns about your furry loved one.
Thank you. We appreciate your support of the purchase of our puppy in fall of last year. Your service was very prompt and professional!
Doctor Rybka was a Godsend recently when my tiny Maltese had swelling in her brain from a hypoglycemic event during her travel time. She couldn't walk and her head was shaking. She couldn't eat or drink by herself. I had to deliver that to her by syringe. We were so afraid we would have to have her euthanized if she didn't recover. She wouldn't have been able to walk or eat. I am glad to say she has made a full recovery and is a happy, healthy, active little puppy. Dr. Rybka was a wonderful support during that time, always checking on her and helping me make decisions about what to do for her. I sent him movies of her progress so he could tell if she was improving. I was truly comforted by his vast knowledge as a veterinarian. He was honest and forthright about her chances of recovery. I believe we had a Divine intervention with her but Dr. Rybka was definitely a part of that.
You have helped with the initial scarey period and I thank you for that. When I decide to take the dive again and get another small dog....I know you are knowledgeable in everything you do...you truly are lifesavers
Doctor Pup, your service provided me with peace of mind on those occasions when i phoned and i thank you so much for the occasion as well you reached out to me on a return call. Our puppy Vaski is now 9 months and doing well. Decided to end our subscription at this time but many thanks again!
I am feeling much better, thank you Dr Rybka for all your advice and support!
I had been wanting a pomeranian puppy since last October 2013 and was searching online...looking at hundreds of pups. When I finally found Teddy it was January and I was to pick him up in February. Then my anxiety set in! I have never owned a dog in my life and realized I didn't know anything about raising a puppy. In a panic, I started researching online for information on the "How To's" and came across the Pup Pee Poo Palace and Doctor Pup. This was EXACTLY what I needed! I watched the video on how the palace worked and ordered the deluxe package right away, along with extra pads, the warming toy and the Tricky Trainers. The palace was super easy to set up and was all ready for my new baby. He did not hesitate to go in and make himself right at home. It has been a Godsend at night as I do not worry that he is getting into mischief. I know he is safe and sound. Best of all, no accidents on the floor! The palace is easy to clean up and is a great aid in potty training. Speaking of potty training, he is doing great and I have Doctor Pup to thank for that! The website is fabulous and has helped me so very much. I had and still have so many questions on puppy behavior and all I had to do was write my concerns and within the day my question was answered. The videos are awesome, too. For example, I had to give Ted a bath and had no idea how to do it....I watched the video on the site....super! The one on Parvo is a must to watch as well. There is so much valuable information on Doctor Pup...and I have to say, I must have watched all the videos...some several times. Bringing a puppy into your life is a huge responsibility and I wanted to make sure that my little guy is getting the best of the best. Doctor Pup and the Pup Pee Poo Palace has made that possible. I give both my highest recommendations.
As always, thanks so much for your advice. Super helpful! I always recommend your service to friends/family :)
Thank you! I appreciate your prompt responses and all the helpful imformation you provided for all of my questions. The Forum Q&A and the Live Chat worked easily for me.
Our puppy was supposed to get 0.2cc medication and instead got 2.0cc. We contacted Dr Rybka through Doctorpup.com. He told us what we needed to do with items we could get at the store. Everything went as planned and our puppy is fine. His advice was absolutely amazing!
When we received our new puppy "Gizzy." we were both excited and nervous. She was only 1 pound and came with pages of instructions! On the second day after her arrival she became ill. We took her to the vet and it was determined she had a respiratory infection. As soon as we got home from the vet I called Dr. Rybka to make sure that everything the vet had prescribed was appropriate. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me talking me through everything we needed to do. He took the time to answer all my questions and never once made me feel like anything I was asking was not important or dumb. Over the next few days he continued to check on "Gizzy" and make sure everything was going okay. About a week latet she completely stopped eating and again we called Dr. Rybka. He felt the appetite loss might be due to the antibiotic. His suggestions worked overnight. He checked on her again the next day. I highly recommend DOCTORPUP to anyone considering a new puppy. Dr. Rybka is so kind, caring and easy to talk to. Thanks for making our transition with "Gizzy" easier.
Our new puppy Casey is a 1.5 pound Yorkshire Terrier. We followed all instructions that we received when we got him and thought all was well. After four days he seemed to be doing great. We took him to our vet and got his next vaccination and some other medications. The next night Casey was having diarrhea and was getting weaker by the moment. I went to Doctorpup.com for the first time, I didn't know what to expect. Ten minutes after subitting a forum question about Casey's problems we got a call from Dr. Rybka. He listened to our description of the situation and thought we could try to handle it at home. We followed his plan and worked with Casey through the night, we could see he was getting better. Dr. Rybka called us twice to make sure things we ok. Casey started to eat again the next morning and was acting like he did when we first got him. Do not hesitate to ask. questions on Doctorpup.com. We found Dr. .Rybka cares about your pet and cares about you. He is a special person.
I am very grateful with how helpful Dr. Rybka has been over the past few months with my 5 month old puppy Sophie. She had several unfortunate medical problems to include low blood sugar, gastritis, and an ear infection. He made sure that all of my questions were answered and helped me feel at ease with any concerns that I expressed to him regarding Sophie. Dr Rybka took the time to guide me through step by step and helped me to develop a comprehensive AT HOME plan that ensured consistency with the guidance I received from the local veterinarian in our area. I would describe Dr Rybka as an invaluable resource that Sophie and I have, and will always be able to count on in the future.
I took my puppy to a veterinarian last week and was told she had a "slight grade 3 heart murmur", I then took her to another vet today and was told there was no murmur. Being able to use the chat feature to get a logical explanation of how this could be and find out whether or not I should be worriied, was great. Sometimes the information we get during an exam is confusing so having an option for another opinion without having to go to or pay for another exam is very reassuring.
Wow what a great siteDoctorpup.com was a wonderful learning tool! I learned so many things about my new puppy that I would have been clueless on without Doctor Pup. The live chat was great as I was able to ask questions about items that I just didn't get the chance to with my local vet. Dr. Rybka was so knowledgeable and made things easy to understand instead of confusing. The videos were great and easy to understand. I would definitely recommend anyone getting a new puppy to use this service!
Around 4 am, I woke up to an unconscious puppy. I had no choice but to take him to a 24-hour emergency veterinary clinic. They initiated supportive care and ran a few tests to figure out what was going on. Shortly after leaving the clinic, I was very discouraged by the treatment plan they gave me. I called the seller that I bought my dog from, and he immediately got me in contact with Dr.Rybka. From the first time I talked with Dr. Rybka I did not care to hear what any other vet had to say because they did not seem to care at all about what was best for this puppy. But, Dr. Rybka truly seemed to care. He was very patient with me. He answered all of my questions above and beyond what the veterinarians at the care center that I was paying a lot of money to would do. After two days at the care center, I transferred my puppy to Dr.Rybka’s care. At that point I knew he was in the best hands and I knew he was getting the care he deserved. Dr. Rybka called with updates every single day. At one point during his care there, we didn’t even think the puppy would survive. He had a severe infection that stressed his kidneys and we later found out that he only has one functioning kidney because the other kidney is polycystic. After a lot of patience, supportive care, and taking it one day at a time Dr. Rybka and I had several conversations and we finally felt like the puppy was ok to come home after being under his care for 2 weeks. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Rybka. There is nothing that shows through more in a person when he isn’t just good at his job, but is also passionate about what he does. He did a remarkable job, and at times when I was a little discouraged, he was there to help me see the positives. He was always upfront with me about everything that was going on, and always gave me options as to what direction I wanted to go with the situation. Although some might have done differently, after many long conversations, Dr. Rybka and I decided to persevere through this illness my puppy had, and in the end he is doing terrific. He is playful, happy, loving, and more energetic than ever. All of his lab values have returned tonormal and he is doing terrific. I will never be able to thank Dr. Rybka enough for fighting for this puppy. This little dog has brought so much joy and happiness to my family. I have a four year old son that does not want to go anywhere without him and the joy I see in his eyes I will never be able to repay. I greatly appreciate Dr.Rybka for his dedication, compassion, knowledge, and commitment in his work.
I can't thank you enough for your help at a time when we didn't know what to do about our puppy's health. We were told the condition was a lot worse than what it really was. I switched vets, took your advise and had the tests ran that you thought should be ran. It's not often that someone will give all the concern and help that you did. I can't say this enough, Thank you again for everything.
