Thoughtful vet

Another guinea pig related story, this time about the vet!

My friend sent me this message about the kindness of vets and the difficult job they have to do.

“Sadly we had to have one of our guinea pigs put to sleep after half-term. It was very upsetting for my older daughter as it was ‘her’ guinea pig. This week the vets sent us a condolence card through the post, which I thought was very kind.

“They recognised how much my daughter’s pet meant to her. The card showed they care.”

Read the full story about the difference this kindness made to my friend’s family in a What If… blog on this site. She also shares a tip for how you can help people going through similar grief.
