doing?” we think about the people we’re helping by caring for their pets.

It sometimes seems like God plays a dirty trick on us. Humans live several times longer than our dogs and cats, meaning we have to watch many of our pets go to that big place in the sky over the course of our lives. It seems to be God’s way of telling us to enjoy every moment we have with our four-legged friends.

It’s the reason we created our Pet Care Plans. We were tired of seeing people in tough spots because of an unexpected hospital bill for their four-legged friend. We came up with these plans so that people could get their pets taken care of without getting slapped with a massive bill all at once. Our Pet Care Plans include a whole year’s worth of routine care in each package. We have three tiers of plans with different packages of care. When you choose a plan, you’ll be receiving a discount on recommended annual services, and you can pay at the time you sign up or break it up and pay monthly throughout the year so it easily fits into your budget. Imagine how you’ll feel when you bring your pet in for an annual or semiannual visit, and it’s already paid for! We want you to be able to do what is best for your pets, and we want it to be easy for you, so we designed these plans with you and your pets in mind. Inside the newsletter, you can read more about the different plans we have available and what each one includes. Happy new year, and here’s to a great 2020 with our four-legged friends!

In studies done about humans and their pets, researchers have found that people who have pets tend to live longer and have a higher quality of life than those who don’t. Our best guess as to why is because pets give us purpose in life. No matter how terrible a day we’re having, our pets need to be fed and walked. No matter how grumpy we might be, they are always happy to see us. Coming home after a crappy day to your little guy wagging his tail because he’s so excited to see you feels like therapy. Pets don’t care if you mess up; they just want to give you love and be loved in return. They’re always there for you. Personally, this is definitely what’s given us purpose in life. We know caring for pets isn’t just about the animals; it’s about helping their humans, too. In those moments of existential crisis, when we’ve wondered, “What are we

W e recently talked to a client whose husband passed away. It was her first Thanksgiving and Christmas without him, and it was very difficult for her to go through the holidays without the person who was her whole world. For our clients who’ve lost their pets, the holidays can have a similar tone — it might be the first Christmas in 12 or 15 years without their best friend. It’s sad to think about family being gone, whether two-legged or four-legged. That loss can feel like a gaping hole.
