Dear Dr. Harnett,

This note is long overdue but no less heartfelt. Thank you and the rest of the BEVS staff for making my short and extremely painful loss of my beloved Miss Edna cat bearable. All of the staff at Green Mountain Animal Hospital, Mill Hill Pet Crematory, my family and friends showed me that true kindness and compassion is very much alive and well, and goes far beyond the extra ordinary professional training and tasks. While I still cry often from missing her, I have a new stray named Fitz and my other 3 felines, I am left with knowing how much some people care. It helps all of us.


Dear Dr. Harnett,

Thank you for all the help you gave us with Felix the cat this past year. We really appreciate all the time you took, both in the office and in the many phone calls we had in planning how to care for our cat. We will never forget thoughtfulness and kindness you showed us. Thank you for always being there-and your staff too.

Dear Doctor Harnett and friends at BEVS,

Thank you for your card expressing sympathy for our loss of Chester.  Chester is missed terribly; the loss of his loving manner and sweet face leaves an empty space in our hearts.  He was truly a sweet boy and we have many memories with him; hiking the 4000 Footers in NH, camping when he’d get in the tent first to steal the air mattress and swimming at Texas Falls.  What a wonderful companion he was to us.

Please accept our deepest appreciation for the excellent care that was given to Chester and compassion that was given to us through such a difficult time.  We will always know that we did all we could and made the only decision possible.  Your support helped us get through the process and knowing that Chester left with people who loved him gives us comfort when we struggle through the hard times.

Thank you so much!


Patty and Mark
