Dr. Keith has a wonderful way with our four-legged friends. He lets them know that everything is going to be okay with his calming words and healing touch. He has a kind and compassionate heart."
You probably don’t even realize the impact you have had on all of our lives. I honestly believe Monet would not be with us today if it weren’t for you working with us to help overcome the issues she has with the Addison’s disease. At 13 years old she is a healthy, happy girl who plays like a 5 year old. Lexi has transformed from being weak and timid to a strong and confident dog who loves to go for walks and plays ball non-stop every night. Both of them are healthy, happy and well adjusted. At our house, when the dogs are doing well, we are all happy! We used to visit the vet’s office a minimum of once a month before finding you. Now we only go occasionally for routine tests and checkups. They used to know us as their most frequent clients. Now they forget who we are and that is a good thing!"
Dr. Keith Weingardt is an AMAZING human being, and an EXCELLENT clinician… Dr. Weingardt not only helped clinically, but Spiritually as well… he was extremely supportive, full of empathy… wonderfully caring, and always focused on what was best for both Sammy and our family. I cannot recall ever having met a more wonderful, caring, and clinically “in-tune” veterinarian (or other physician for that matter...)."
When it comes to bedside manner, Dr. Keith Weingardt is simply unmatched! Our dogs loved their “Uncle Keith”, and we have learned that Dr. Weingardt’s remarkable wisdom is absolutely critical to making the best choices for our pets in difficult times. Dr. Weingardt has an uncanny ability to connect with an animal and share profound insights that are so important when facing an illness, especially for those of us to whom pets are family. If you are looking for a brilliant veterinarian who is not only exceptionally skilled and compassionate but also wise, practical, and courageous enough to tell it to you straight, you need not look any further. Dr. Weingardt is paws down the best ally your pet could ever have!"
It’s an absolute pleasure to offer this testimonial for Dr. Keith Weingardt DVM. Listing his skills and talents would take pages, but let us say this: Of all the men and women we have met in the veterinarian care field Dr. Keith stands alone. Not only an exceptional animal caregiver, he has the irreplaceable ability to understand how animals think and feel. Often in the past we’ve remarked, “ If only our dog could tell us what hurts….” Keith instinctively knows. How he does it is a unique gift. Beyond that, Keith Weingardt is one of the finest human beings we’ve ever met. Honest, straightforward, humble and trustworthy."
Dr. Keith Weingardt is the best veterinarian that we have ever had the privilege of knowing. Dr. Keith saved our Fozzie from a horrible disease called Discoid Lupus. When Fozzie was diagnosed our then regular vet placed Fozzie on a very high dose of antibiotics and steroids, which at 6 years old was a death sentence. We knew that his organs will shut down due to these medications way before he would die of the actual disease. Frightened we spoke to some of our friends who were raving about Dr. Keith. Even though the wait list to see him was very long – Dr. Keith is VERY popular because he is a true healer - we waited. Dr. Keith talked to us for over an hour. He sat on the floor with our Fozzie and truly examined him promising that within a month Fozzie will be weaned off of the traditional poisonous medication and will be on a herbal mixture. Everything that Dr. Keith said came true – Fozzie’s disease went into remission and he was totally off the western medications. Dr. Keith also helped with Fozzie’s Rheumatoid Arthritis, skin issues, etc. Whenever Fozzie would go for an appointment he would get so excited when we would drive up to Dr. Keith’s office -he would pull us to go inside – he just loves Dr. Keith. In the past when he would go to his traditional western medicine vet he would need to be physically pulled out of the car – he hated to go there. When we found out that Dr. Keith was leaving San Diego, I must admit I cried….we all cried. If you are lucky enough to have Dr. Keith as your vet, treasure every moment as it is a privilege."
How to capture the indescribable … Yes, it’s impossible but this writer will endeavor to try. No one can match Dr. Keith – seriously. We were newer to town without compatriots to call upon when my own baby Riptide acquired bone cancer after he and I were struck by a car as pedestrians. Even now, I’m grateful we had a whole year to hang out before his was called back home. No one met Riptide where he was more fully and with a more engaging and receptive heart than Keith Weingardt. Every fear I brought to the table was received, appreciated and placed in its necessary casket with the utmost respect and at the most appropriate time. Riptide’s pain stabilized under Dr. Keith’s care though in greater likelihood because he knew deep down that his new doctor truly felt his feelings and life were worthwhile. Despite the obvious heartfelt trauma every animal owner encounters with their fur babies, their chosen exit strategy does indeed hold its own impact in the wake of their departure. I once read a testimonial from a San Diego client claiming ‘I cried when I learned Dr. Keith was moving,’ and clearly, I can fully appreciate why. Bring Dr. Keith into the lives of your loved ones and they and you will always be whole.
