In 2005, you performed the first of two TPLO surgeries on our dog Hepburn. Before we came to you, she was not walking — she was hopping. She was in a great deal of pain and we thought we were losing her. I remember quite clearly that you explained, very simply, the procedures you had planned for her. You not only took into account our feelings but you also treated Hepburn like she was your own kid.


We didn't know, at that point, what gift you had actually given us — another seven years with our beautiful Hepburn. We had to let her go just yesterday and the pain we feel is only tempered by the fact that through you, her life was doubled. She was over 13 years old.


Thank you, Dr. Canapp. Thank you for everything you did for us... without even knowing it.


Our Best,

Bonnie, Glen, & Gillian Tomlinson
