Ours did every time... but I think what meant more to us was the fact that they cried with us. Every time.

The only think I could think of, which my hubby denies, is that Max passed away on a hike on the mountain from sun heat. I believe hubby had an appt for him to get bathed. How could they even know otherwise? I never
pressed it. He was feeling terrible already. I never will. I just assumed that's how the spa found out.

But their personalized comments about Max and bathing him and all meant the world to me.
I think word just gets around. I had tragically lost a 10 month old puppy years ago, and the training school we went to puppy kindergarten to sent me a card. I never knew how they found out too.

My former vet would send a card, with a sealed remembrance with my pet's paw print stamped and a clipping of each ones fur sealed in plastic. The first time I got one of those cards, I screamed in horror, because I was not ready or expected that. I had to put it away for about 6 months before I could look for it. As other pets went to the bridge, as I received the cards I would open them on my own time, but was so grateful to have those keepsakes.

My Vet office always sends a hand signed card too. It's such a nice gesture. With our last guy, Buddy, the Vet and Vet tech cried with me as he was put to sleep.
To this day the Vet sometimes makes the mistake of calling Bentley, Buddy. He feels bad but I tell him don't worry, we do it at home too. Their personalities are so much alike it's scary

That is so touching. Chloe is my first dog and I dread the day she will leave. I hope my vet is as sympathic as yours.

Yes, my vet has done the same. I've been their client for over 15 years, and they've always been so supportive and caring. Even the emergency vet I went to (have only been to them maybe 3 times in 15 yrs, and they wouldn't have remembered me), when Lacey passed on a Sunday, was extremely caring.

My Vet

Our vet sent a card when we lost our Snobear (Samoyed), and Smooch, our Golden Retriever. He also cried and so did his tech when he had to euthanize them.

This hits close to home with me. My Vet was very close to my Cody boy. Infact he was writing a medical journal about him. He wept right along with us during Cody's last few minutes on earth, while apologizing how unprofessional it was, and us reminding him how human it was.

2 months later he called to tell me that he needed to see me and if I could come in the next day. I made the appoint and he came in the room with a litter of 10 beautiful bouncing golden retriever pups and said you deserve one of these. I think we both cried again LOL! That was 2 and half years ago. Needless to say Wyatt was one of those beautiful pups
