They seem to find comfort in knowing their pets are going to Heaven with a full belly and love in their hearts.”

“Our clients and patients are like family. So when we lose a patient, we really take it to heart as if we’re losing one of our own. We recognise that they’re saying goodbye to a member of their family; in some cases, a family member that has been around longer than a decade,” Dr Namie added
