Compassion Understood – Dealing with the loss of your pet..
The approaching end of life of a dear pet is not something that we like to contemplate. Having a resource to help provide clear, reliable information about our pet’s end-of-life can guide us in our planning for this difficult time, in any decision-making and in coping after our pet has passed. Compassion Understood seeks to provide this information and make it accessible and transparent.
My first encounter with Delaware was as an 8 years old, Bill Petheram treated very sick Golden Retriever, Suzy, for whom we had had to return from our holiday in Cornwall as she had become very sick whilst under my Nan’s care. Turns out she had pyometra, was quickly admitted to the main surgery in Yeovil and underwent a successful, lifesaving operation.
The familiar faces now are those of Peter, Beth, Sam and Kirk, but no matter the service remains the same and the care never falters. Whether it is a routine or emergency, I know I can dial that familiar number and somebody on the other end will listen, deal with it appropriately but most of all – care. I have had occasions where I have needed to scoop up my dog and meet with a vet urgently, I know I will be met the other end without fail, day or night, the service has remained the same, a prompt call back from the emergency vet and never any hesitation to meet us at the door, regardless of the time.
I know most of the reception and nursing staff by name; likewise they know us and always ask after my other animals and the family. Delaware haven’t been tempted to become a faceless group of revolving staff and expanding surgeries, when it comes to our cherished pets you need a familiar and trusted face, not just a name on a door, and that is why, as a family, our loyalty has remained firmly with them. Sometime soon we will be relocating, can we take Delaware with us please?! I have recommended the practice on numerous occasions and have only ever heard good feedback – that is quite rare in this day and age with the multitude of communication methods we all have courtesy of the internet!
