Losing my girl was an incredible blow. She was my world. Dr. Gibbings and staff were the best I could have hoped for. I instantly felt as though I was part of a family. Receiving this letter in the mail yesterday touched me so deeply. When I'm ready for another pet, there will only be one place I bring them. Thank you for all you did.
