Expressions of Gratitude

Dear Dr. Veale,

Thank you again for the job shadowing experience for Willow and Holly from Jefferson High School. Their teacher said it was a very positive experience. They were very happy they were able to witness six operations! I hope you are aware of the impact you made on WIllow and Holly. Although they are only in high school, the first hand information you were able to provide is priceless!! Both of the girls told their teacher they are definitely pursing a veterinary degree! I hope you will be willing to speak to students and/ or provide a job shadowing opportunity in the future. Thanks again for your time!

To the Doctor's and Staff at Country Doctor,

Thank you for thinking of me in helping "Maximus" find a home. I have fallen in love with him. He fills my heart with joy and makes me smile a lot. Maximus gives a big thank you to ALL of the staff at Country Doctor Clinic for taking such good care of him and for finding him a new mom! Thank you for entrusting this special little guy to me!

Country Doctor and Staff,

We'd like to thank you Dr. Curie and Dr. Veale and all of the staff for your kindness, professionalism and your dedication to your job and your clients and patients. We'd especially like to thank you for your care of Tori during this difficult time. Your caring support was greatly appreciated. It's made our loss easier knowing others truly cared.

Warmly, Jim and Andrea Roberts

To all of you,

Thanks to you so much for being there when I really needed you, especially Dr.Veale and Ashley. It was so hard for me and the kind words were more like giant acts of awesomeness. I will be forever grateful you put my Chi Chi to sleep in a wonderful way!

Thanks so much, Renee Petronio

Thank you so much for your compassioon on the day we said goodbye to Angel Moe. We truly appreciate the comfort you provided for our four legged family member. You guys made a very difficult day bearable.

Thank you again, The Pinney Family

I would like to thank the doctors and staff for remembering me at the time of Jetta's passing. Your card is very much appreciated. Also, thank you for taking care of her the past 11 1/2 years.

Laverne Mitcham

Thank you everyone for all of your support and thoughtfulness. Zana and Zeus were your family too and you always treated them that way.

Angel,Jerry,Adam, and Arian Helsel

I wanted to send this to let you all know how grateful I am to have such wonderful and caring people and what I consider friends looking after my girls. I got your sympathy card yesterday and it REALLY meant a lot to me! Losing my sweet, precious girl has just torn me up so much and my heart is so broken. The house is so empty without her. Little Bit seems to be depressed over not having her "big sis" around. I just wish that this had never happened and we would still have her here. As nutty as this sounds, I can feel her presence here and I talk to her ashes. You are all so wonderful!!! Thank-you,

Carol Speck

Hi All, Just a little note to give you all a BIG THANK YOU for your kindness and thoughtfullness on the passing of our Casey. It really meant a lot to us! Thank you so much.

Warmest Regards,
The Workman's

We wanted to extend our appreciation to you Dr. Veale ,Dr. Curie, and the Staff for the loving hand you provided for our boy Max throughout his visits. As pet owners, we all know the day will come when we will have to say "so long" to our good friends. However, nothing can ever prepare you for that day. As we struggled to find a way to keep Max with us and selfishly avoid our heartache, we realized his recovery possibly was fading and the time we all fear may be approaching. A special thanks to you Dr.Curie for your professional wisdom regarding Max's treatment ("we would be heading down a dark and ugly road") and the needed comfort he brought us to accept our decision. And to Sarah... Thank you for your emotional assistance during those last few minutes with Max. He was an amazing companion that we will always cherish!

Lauren, Ray, and Adam Bahr

Dr. Veale and Staff,

There are no words to tell you how grateful I am for giving my dog "Buddy Bonds" AKA " Ole Fella", a good long life. I wish I could have kept him forever, but it is not God's plan. I miss him so so much. He was my pal! I'll miss everything about him- his greetings and kisses. I am blessed to have had him so long with the great care you gave him a good quality life. When you loose something you love, you realize how fast life goes bye and greatful for the days you have. Thank you and bless you all,

Linette Yankie

Dr. Curie, Dr. Veale and Wonderful Staff,

You have always gone above and beyond for my furry children! They are my universe so I want the best for them! When they are ill, I can't simply ask what's wrong but I have the utmost faith and trust that you will get to the bottom of it. What a huge relief for me as they are my babies. Thank you for the wonderful work you do!

Carli Wojtowicz

On behalf of my husband Dennis and myself, I wanted to thank you all for your compassion, kindness and help through this difficult time. Sparky was a wonderful pet and most of all part of our family. You all allowed him to leave us in such an honorable way. For that we are sincerely grateful to all of you.
Thank you for your kindness.

Cathy and Dennis Pettit


Thank you so much for your tender support while putting cody down. It was such a sad day. In your charismatic way, you helped to make it a beautiful transition, if there ever could be one. It's a shame good friends have to be seperated from us on earth. I guess all we can do is keep loving. You will always have a special spot in my heart. Thank you for being one of the special friends that makes life beautiful.

Love, Carol

Dr. Veale and Staff,

I wanted to say thank you to all of you ladies for your support and kindness, through everything with Buddy. Thanks for the lovely card. I'll cherish it always.
Thanks Again

Dr. Curie,

Michael and I would like to thank you from one parent to another for your time when dealing with our son and "Daisy" over the past couple of weeks. Even when our children become adults we wish we could shelter them from the pain that real life brings sometimes. Its also obvious that your staff takes their lead from you.

The Creeds

Dr. Curie,

Patches was a part of our lives and family for many years. He went with us whenever we would go to horse shows, camping and traveling. We enjoyed him and we hope he enjoyed us. He would always follow us and want to be around us no matter where we werearound the house. He was a very important part of our family.
From when he first came into our family as a puppy, you and your staff were very supportive, always there to take care of his health. You were always there when over the years he would tangle with a four wheeler oand/or other injuries.
Thank you and your staff for the years of care and support.

Jay and Bonnie

Thank you,


I would like to acknowledge Carly and Ashley. Carly greeted me at the door and gave me a hug, she then helped to bring Rommel into the clinic from the car. During all of this she shared her similar experience with me about her dog. Ashley also always shows us great concern and compassion. She has patience and handles our pets very gently, which calms all of us. Its like magic. All the techs and assistants have been wonderful and go out of their way to make me, Rommel and Val feel at ease and valued.


Everyone at Country Doctor,

We really appreciate all of your kindness and help with our dog "Bwaster" while he was alive and when we had to put him to sleep! We really loved him and you all made a very hard time for us a little easier and gave us some needed comfort.
We thank you All so much for caring,

Dear Dr. Curie and Staff,

We wanted to thank you all for the compassion, kindness, and thoughtfulness during one of the most difficult times in ours and "Maggie's" life. During "Maggie's" whole life she had come to your office either for just her yearly check-ups, an occasional paw injury from running too hard, or for her many ear infections due to finding and having to swim in every lake, pond, creek and mud puddle she could sniff out. Every time she did not want to be there but your friendly and kind staff and the uncountable amount of cookies you gave her made the visits so much more bearable and enjoyable. The last couple of months in "Maggie's" life were difficult and challenging for her and our family, and during the last couple of hours even more so, but you and your staff helped make this experience in our lives so much more comfortable and personable. We are still very saddened that "Maggie's" life has ended so soon, but we are also very happy and privileged that she shared the time she had with us and helped make our lives that much happier.
Thank you again for your kindness,

Michael and Erika

Dear Dr. Curie and Staff,

Thank you all for everything that you did for "Malachi". You made this terrible time so much easier. And thank you Dr. Curie for time spent in my time of need!
Thank you,

Ron and Connie
