Thank you for choosing Claire Place Veterinary Hospice

We are often asked “How can you provide this service?  That is the saddest job ever!”  For those that have experienced it, saying goodbye to our furry family member at home, surrounded by loved ones can be the calmest, most peaceful gift we can provide them when prolonged suffering is inevitable and our pet’s comfort and quality of life are in question.

Perhaps the greatest lesson of hospice care is to simply enjoy each other in the time that is gifted to us, and to prepare for the next phase where one soul is shifting to a new existence while the rest of us brace to stay behind.

Our hearts go out to each and every one of you.  Thank you for choosing Claire Place Veterinary Hospice.

"My friend just died. I don't know what to do."

From the depths of old internet comments comes another incredible gem of a story. One user wrote the following heartfelt plea online:

"My friend just died. I don't know what to do.

The rest of the post has been deleted, only the title remains. However, the helpful responses live on, and one of them was absolutely incredible. The reply by this self-titled "old guy" might just change the way you approach life and death.
