Saying goodbye to a long-time friend is painful and we want to be here to make that decision and process just a little bit easier.
We want to make sure you have all the information and resources you need, so when the time comes, you’ll know what to expect. Our staff at Village Veterinary Clinic will help you guide you through this tough time as you say goodbye and decide how to take care of the remains.
