A woman from Flordia fled the grasp of her abusive, gun-toting partner by handing a note to an unlikely savior — an employee at her dog’s veterinary office.

After suffering from two days of beatings and gunpoint threats at the hands of felon Jeremy Floyd inside their DeLand residence, battered Carolyn Reichle finally persuaded him to let her take their dog to the vet, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office revealed.

According to ABC13, the 39-year-old man — though he insisted on going with her, with a loaded gun in his possession.

On the ride over, Floyd threatened to murder Reichle and her family.

When they arrived at DeLand Animal Hospital, Reichle covertly gave a handwritten note to a worker.

“Call the cops. My boyfriend is threatening me. He has a gun,” the note stated. “Please don’t let him know.”

The worker quietly called the police, who showed up, took the gun and arrested Floyd.

He remains in custody without bail in Volusia County Branch Jail on a myriad of charges, including domestic violence, aggravated assault with a guns, and false imprisonment.

Deputies took Reichle to an area hospital, where she was treated for a head injury, a black eye, and bruiseso n her arms.

The rescue concluded the horrific 48 Reichle had to endure that started when Floyd beat her up last Wednesday night.

During the dispute, the couple fought over the gun, sending two rounds through a wall inside their residence.

Floyd beat Reichle so severely that she spent all of Thursday in bed with a head injury.

Floyd refused to let the woman leave home for two days until she plotted her escape plan Friday.
