    Dr Danny was our first vet over 30 years ago. We had a boxer pup and he took care of her. He was so kind and down to earth. Always enjoyed our visits. So sorry for your loss. He was Dr Doolittle. ❤️

    My deepest sympathy to Martha and family. Knowing Dr. Schramm as my vet, friend and Reno neighbor was a treasure I won’t forget. I especially enjoyed his stories about the farm or his career. May the memories bring you peace and comfort at this time.

      My Veterinarian, my friend, my mentor, my Hero. When his assistant took maternity ĺèave, he asked me
      To help him out…I was greatly honored! He taught me so much in those 3+ months. Not just about Vet medicine, but also about life & how to navigate through it. I loved his sense of humor, & his no nonsense style & the days we traveled to Caldwell & Wodsfield, we would crank the radio up & sing at the top of our lungs!!!! RIP, my friend. Sincere condolences to his family.
