  From personal experience

     Having had a dear pet with a terrible cancer, Iíve been through this from every angle. I hate to say it, but taking a pet to CSUís teaching hospital is both wonderful and terrible. It is great that we have access to the top equipment, minds and chemistry in the world. However, the experience of checking in at a teaching hospital, then watching the confusing parade of people, from techs to senior students, interns and residents; and then several doctors, is trying on your nerves and time consuming. Finally, navigating the maze of directions, schedules and traffic, etc., make the whole experience quite bad. Iím sure this is true with any teaching hospital (human or veterinary) but Iíve taken several complex cases to CSU; and, while the people are great and the outcomes are the best youíll find, the overall experience is not good. They really need to work on improving the client experience. But they are there if you need them.
