    Aloha Vet and The Incredible Dr.Pol, are two of the main reasons why I watch Nat Geo Wild. I always loved to watch Dr. Sims and cringe as he walked barefoot through everything imaginable. As an animal lover I will miss him and the relationship he had with his patients.

    Aloha Dr.Sims, may you continue your work with all your patients that have gone on before you.

    I hate to hear about your passing Dr. Scott, your work with the animals was just phenomenal. It takes a very special heart & soul to do the type of work that you did with the animals. The animals & their humans were just at ease with you,.animals know &.since about people whether they are good or not & you were just one of a kind. May God be with your family at this time & with all of your friends you have made along the way animals & human. God Bless, Rebecca Maples.
