This weekend I found myself as one of those people hanging up their Christmas lights before Thanksgiving. It’s very easy this year, with Thanksgiving falling late in the month, to overlook it and get into the Christmas spirit (not that that’s a bad thing!)
I would like to take this moment to give thanks to all our Pet-Parents for entrusting their beloved pets’ lives to our care. We take this responsibility very seriously. All of your pets are like family to us. We strive to collaborate with our Pet-Parents in providing what is best for their pets.
I am thankful for the award-winning hospital that I come to every day to work. Without the support of our community of Pet-Parents, this place could never have been built.
In January, we will be celebrating our 17th year since we first opened our doors. We are days away from welcoming our 19,000th client to our facility. For this, I give thanks.
I also wish to give thanks to the 30 area veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in southern New Jersey who have referred their orthopedic patients to us just this year alone! For over 20 years, I have performed thousands of orthopedic procedures from cruciate ligament tears to complete fracture reconstruction for a price much more affordable than that charged by local emergency clinics and specialty centers.
As I sit at the dinner table this Thanksgiving with my family, I give thanks for the blessings I’ve been bestowed. (I’ll wait until Friday to put up the Christmas tree.)
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.
