I want to write this letter about my veterinarian, Alan Dorr. He put my dog down on Nov. 14. She was 14 years old and had a lot of problems. He had her on special food and it helped for a while, then it seemed like it stopped working. He has put down two other dogs of mine. I held them in my arms and stayed with them. This dog would not let you hold her in your arms. I had to leave her there and walk away.
Anyone who has gone through this with an animal knows it breaks your heart. I hope that Dr. Dorr understands why I walked away. He is one of the most caring persons I know. He has been my vet for 25 years, and I thank him for his compassion toward animals. I miss Patsy so much.
