Pet lovers remembering veterinarians

My dog loves the vet.

“Who wants to go to the vet? Me!”

It’s not normal, I know. Pets are supposed to hate the vet. But Toby’s got a few good reasons for his enthusiasm. He gets to go for a car ride! The nice lady pets him and tells him he looks handsome and healthy. Dr. Stacy might poke him a little bit, but when it’s all done she gives him a treat – and he gets to go in the car AGAIN!

Toby isn’t alone in loving the vet – and I’m not the only pet owner who thinks my dog’s vet is pretty wonderful. We’ve recently noticed a trend of folks remembering beloved veterinarians by adding photos of their pets to the vet’s Guest Book. Once others see a pet photo or two in a vet’s Guest Book, it can build into a spectacular – and very furry – photo gallery. Here are a few of our favorites.

Dr. Daniel Good‘s Guest Book photo gallery is full of gems like this one.

“Lexis and Jack are big fans of Dr. Good”

Dr. Alan Slack cared for more than just dogs and cats.

“You will be missed Dr. Slack”

Dr. Michael Horton inspired one pet owner to get out the camera while at the vet’s office.

“Dr. Horton with Bailey Sydelko’s first vet visit.”

Dr. Karl Schmidt recommended these stylish – and safe – doggles.

“She wears the doggles you recommended to keep her eyes safe in the jeep.”

Dr. David Anderson even received a Christmas card in his Guest Book.

“Dr. Dave’s clients will miss him!”

Dr. Daniel Stearns was surely better at telling these triplet cats apart than we would be.

“Q and Spirit were spayed/neutered by him. All 5 of mine send their condolences.”

About Linnea

I joined in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
