In our house, she’s known as M-A-R-I-A. That’s because Tamino, our Pomeranian, and Bay, our standard poodle, get so excited when they hear her name. Immediately on high alert, they get out their favorite toys, the welcome they reserve for family!
Bay has degenerative myelopathy in her spine and osteoarthritis in her hind legs. Unfortunately, DM is progressive and incurable. After three months, thanks to acupuncture treatments administered by Dr. Kuty in our home, Bay’s strength, stability, and stamina have improved. She can now stand, sit, and lie down, and go up and down short flights of stairs, without hesitation. Her mobility and flexibility have increased to the point that, on occasion, she treats us to prances and bows, a joy for us to see.
To be able to have Dr. Kuty do the acupuncture sessions in our own home has been an enormous benefit. It eliminates the stress of getting into and out of our car, for one thing. For another, Dr. Kuty is never rushed. She gives Bay all the time and attention she needs.
We have known and consulted Dr. Kuty for six years. Over this period, we have grown to appreciate more and more her sensitive, intelligent care for our animals. She listens to and remembers everything we tell her; she asks probing, thoughtful questions grounded in excellent problem-solving skills. Her compassion for her patients (and their caregivers) makes it abundantly clear that she cares deeply about every aspect of her practice. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be among the beneficiaries.

Dr Kuty is amazing! Our 13-year-old dog, Freeway, suffered a stroke a couple of weeks ago, and we knew that it was time to euthanize him. I wanted to find a vet who could come out to our house that same day, and so I started calling around; Dr Kuty was the one who returned my blubbering and incoherent phone call. Since I had not used Dr Kuty's services prior to this, I didn't know what to expect. I ended up feeling that I could not have made a better choice for Freeway (and for me). As all dog lovers know, there is nothing more difficult than saying goodbye to a beloved friend, and Dr Kuty helped ease the transition. She was warm, kind, compassionate; she didn't rush us; she gave us all the time and space we needed to say our goodbyes; she explained every step of the process; and she was of course incredibly gentle with Freeway. Freeway showed no signs of stress, nervousenss, confusion; he just went to sleep, in his own home, on his own bed. Thank you, Dr Kuty, for making the unbearable bearable. You have my deepest respect and admiration.

We LOVE Dr. Kuty!! What a difference it makes to see our German Shepherd relaxed during his examination and immunizations! He usually pants and sheds like mad...but today was relaxed and happy. Even when she had to aspirate a wound on his leg, he didn't seem to mind. Dr. Kuty is not just a very professional and detail oriented veterinarian, she has a way of making animals feel relaxed and even love her. Charlie is not one to take treats from anyone other than our family and yet he was happy to take one from Dr. Kuty. The normally "non-licking boy" also managed to give Dr. Kuty a kiss before she departed today. Now THAT is saying something!! He gives her 4 Paws Up!! We would give her 6 stars, if that were an option!
