I’ve used the services of several veterinarians in my now twelve years in Cuenca, some better than others – but Dr. Oswaldo Cobos, of Cuenca Animal Clinic tops them all. When my new baby doggie got really sick last week, my regular vet prescribed some medication to treat what he assumed was another bout of a previous illness. However, she got worse, not better, over the weekend and when my vet wasn’t available yesterday (Sunday), I called Dr. Oswaldo, who had previously been highly recommended to me by several friends. Dr. Oswaldo lives way on the other side of town, a good hour’s drive from my house, and Sunday is his day off. However, he showed up at my house within less than two hours of my WhatsApp distress call. He had never seen me or my dog before. Dr. Oswaldo spent more than an hour with me and my baby, examining her and talking to me, explaining a lot of things in detail, with patience and compassion – and in excellent English – which is a great plus in cases of emergencies, when my fairly decent Spanish fails me. He took samples of my dog’s most recent stool and even a vomit sample back to his clinic, Cuenca Animal Clinic, for lab testing. A few hours later, he was back with test results and the necessary medication to treat what ails my baby (which is totally different from what my regular vet had assumed). And this afternoon, he was back again with a test kit to check my dog’s ears for what looks like an infection. He’ll be back tomorrow with those test results and whatever medication may be needed. I cannot even begin to express the level of my appreciation for this jewel of a veterinarian. I had previously hesitated to contact him because I thought his services would be expensive. I was wrong! If you’re new in town and are looking for a great vet, or if you’re in need of a new one, give Dr. Oswaldo Cobos a try. Dr. Francisco Morales Leon, DVM, also works with him, but I don’t think he speaks English.
