We honor the memories of our patients who have passed. Thank you for letting us be a part of the special relationship you shared with them.
Grieving the loss of an animal companion can be especially difficult because there are no rituals or societal guidelines to help us through the process. We envision this page as a space where you can reflect on the love you shared with your pet and create a tribute to their memory. We welcome photos, stories, poems, or any remembrance that feels meaningful to you. As a starting place, author and veterinarian Dr. Karen Fine has created a useful document with suggestions for writing an obituary for your pet:https://karenfinedvm.com/guide-to-writing-a-pet-obituary/ Her website also has a list of Pet-Loss Resources:https://karenfinedvm.com/resources/ MN Pets has a list of local resources that you may also find helpful during this difficult time https://www.mnpets.com/blog/local-resources.
The Hoot was a precious bundle of joy who came to me from my grandmas farm knowing he was sick. He sadly had an illness that was incurable and despite multiple efforts from many amazing humans, we had to to say our goodbyes at only 7 months old. The Hoot reminds us no matter what life throws at you, it’s important to stay positive and keep moving forward. He was so full of life and is missed every single day.
