Because she gave us her email, about 6 months later, we contacted her once more regarding bowel issues – he was having loose stools. She was quick in reply (surprising for such a popular vet who is still heavily in demand for obvious reason), and she told us what to do. We did it, and his symptoms abated for a long time.
About a year later Kiorh and I moved back home to Florida and were doing well; however, he stopped eating one day and his stools were loose again. We took him to a locally revered vet and ran a battery of tests and days later received the worst results any pet parent can comprehend/fathom. We were told he may not make it another week. That he was in severe kidney failure and that he had intestinal lymphoma. I was at a loss – my cat, my soul mate, who was now 19, was as close a family member as anyone, yet something in my gut told me something was amiss. Although I thought of Dr. Rand, I hadn’t spoken to her in so long – yet alone seen her – reaching out to her didn’t even seem like an option.
But something miraculous happened. About 2 weeks later after this fatal diagnosis, I received an email from her, a rather random email, asking us how we were doing. It appeared (and I truly believe!), it was divine intervention that was taking place. I filled her in with everything happening and forwarded her his ultrasound report and labs. This is also a testament to her intuition (that I know she vehemently denies because she is such a GREAT clinically based doctor). But still, she does have it, as well.
She deciphered them astutely and most accurately and with her keen clinically trained eye she explained to me that he was not in kidney failure nor did he have intestinal lymphoma. In fact, the “ultrasound tech” who did his ultrasound that day wasn’t even a radiologist!
Under Dr. Rands loving, professional and incredibly profound expert care, my best friend lived for several more months – happily and comfortably with his mommy. We had a great time. Those months were some of the best months of our lives.
And Dr. Rand was always just a phone call away and in the end, she was there by our side. Kiorh passed away, naturally, in my arms, at home.
If you are looking for a vet who isn’t just “in it” for the money – if you are looking for a vet who goes above and beyond the “system” at play by ALWAYS attending lectures and reading the newest and latest scholarly articles on every possible condition pertaining to YOUR pet’s condition – if you are looking for a vet who actually CARES about saving your pets life as if it were her own, look no further…
You have found her! She is SO ethical she even feels uncomfortable asking her clients to leave reviews !!!
She is an angel on earth. And I’ve been told this by trusted sources… trying not to tear up as I write this.
We love you Dr. Rand. Losing a pet is never easy- never, ever. But in our case, I can’t imagine it happening in any other way. It may sound funny, but Kiorh’s transition was nothing short of perfection. In every way.
You gave us time. Lots of happy, healthy, comfortable, quality time. We have no regrets. I said I wouldn’t cry but I am.
What Dr. Rand does for her clients is ineffable. We were not special. SHE is special.
I’m sorry I made this a soliloquy, but brevity has never been my strong point. Haha.

A million cosmic stars ✨
Her morals and ethics are far better than those of any vet clinics who’s only interest is profit. She has a heart of gold and has a deep love for animals your regular vet would not understand. Not to mention the price for Boo’s procedure was extremely affordable in comparison to every other vet I called. Give this talented doctor a try!
This doc is the best of the best and knows the best of the best and most innovative information. I was impressed with her use of technology and ability to check in with her fellow peers for second opinions on the spot. She knows the most because she is willing to ask questions, seek out more options, and see what has worked best for other vets in similar situations. If only more doctors did this! Dr. Rand is every pet and pet owner’s answer to their prayers.
