Saying Goodbye

Some fit in our pocket,
some sleep on our bed.
They offer us comfort,
while words just get said.

They seem to know how we feel
and ask so little in return.
Pets have so much to give,
we have so much to learn.

It’s the kindest parting gift,
but so difficult to do.
We can’t let our friends suffer,
the way people are often do.

So with a heavy heart
and a tear in our eye.
We make the hardest decision,
it’s time to say goodbye.

We will see our friends again,
when we are reunited up above.
It will be the most joyous time,
when we can shower each other with love.

by Kristine Gerster, DVM

Veterinarians are the only medical profession given the option of euthanasia for our patients. We never take this lightly, it's a most difficult decision for all involved. We have a designated Family Room where you and your loved ones can spend time with your pet while our staff explains the process. We strive to make this as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet. We understand how difficult it is to make this decision, we know what you are going through.

We look forward to hearing from you
