I adopted Hoshi, who had been a stray, only to learn that he was much older than the rescue shelter had estimated. He was the sweetest boy ever, with a personality more like a dog than a cat. After our first year together, he began to develop serious health problems. I struggled to find a vet who could address his systemic health issues, or even help him to be more comfortable is his daily life. Finally, I found MASH. Dr Roman and her caring team worked with me over the next 5 years to help build up Hoshi's general health, to treat his multiplying conditions with both alternative and conventional methods, and to give him a quality of life that I know he never could have had otherwise. Dr Roman is a pioneer and I believe her life and work will have a profound influence on veterinary practices well into the future. I'm grateful for having brought my cat under Dr Roman's care, and I am so grateful for the time I had with my wonderful boy.
