“what I thought was a terrible day- finding out Daisy would be blind and it was just a case of how soon- ended up being her lucky day after all because she had Dr Basher for her Vet. That was nearly 7 years ago. She lost her sight within 6 weeks of our appointment but he saved her eyes. Daisy trusted him from the beginning and so did I. Every time I see the Chase bank commercial with the lion in it I think of him. What a wonderful story. Dr. Basher is greatly missed .
“My family and I have known Dr. Basher for over 10 years. He saved the eyesight and life of our cat, BabyCat and dog, Heidi, for which I am truly grateful. His compassion and knowledge were amazing. He was a wonderful person and the very best in his field. We were truly blessed to have had our dear pets under his care. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kim and the family.
“Tiny Basher was an amazing man and friend. He treated my Akita and then later my Cocker for blindness, surgery to remove eyes in both. His kindness will never be forgotten.
Dogs in San Diego will never have someone like him ever. He is irreplaceable. Lady and I are sad.
“I will always be grateful for his skills which gave my kitten upper eyelids. This is a huge loss for his family, friends, and the entire animal community. I hope his soul finds peace and is surrounded in light by all the animals he has helped over the years.
“He will be very missed in the vet community. He did such a great job of treating my cat fourteen years ago that when my bunny recently need to see a eye vet he was the only vet I thought of. RIP Dr. B.
“I knew Tony for 15 years. I was his hairdresser. Words cannot express the sadness. God bless you Tony, there's a special place in heaven for you
“My sincerest condolences to Dr Basher's family for this devastating loss. Being an ex-pat myself we had some talks about the "old country" but most of all Dr Basher was the most caring veterinarian I have ever met. He was so kind to us and our precious Sarah who hopefully is with him now. He always respected our love for Sarah and kept us fully aware of everything going on with her, regardless of how many emergencies we had. I am at a loss myself that he is no longer with us but...
“Having just left the memorial service for Dr Basher we truly feel like we have lost a secret friend. When our 12 year old Maggie was diagnosed with diabetes it was quickly followed by cataracts. Our vet suggested we take her to dr Basher who recommended surgery which turned out perfectly and gave Maggie six more years of sight until her passing at 18. We of course got two more Westies and lo and behold our two year old Isabella was diagnosed by our vet with non producing tear ducts. It...
