    Letter from Vet

    Last year one of my piggies, George, passed way.
    We had been back and forth to the vet, but in the end his little body just gave out.

    Yesterday I came home to find this letter in my mailbox from my vet's office. And it had me in tears.

    I have been to vets before that made my pigs seem like an afterthought rather than a priority.
    I am so grateful to have a vet now that, even in death, remembers and honors my piggies.

    I just wanted to share this. It touched me deeply.

    That's sweet.

    My vet donates a tree to a local reclamation area in honor of each pet that passes.

    That's a wonderful thing to see, Kim. Its so very nice to see a vet that puts thought and effort into the little details, that make their extended family realize that they are important to them. Even after they're gone.

    I received a similar condolence letter from our local animal shelter, after we had to euthanize both of our cats within a short period of time a few years ago. It was a small detail that meant the world to us.
