The special power of the human-animal bond
I had some truly heartwarming moments this week.
One particular moment really stood out. I had the pleasure of meeting a new client and their beloved pet. As we were discussing the pet’s history, dad shared something that deeply touched my heart. He revealed that for the pet’s entire 15 years of life, they had never been away from each other for more than two hours at a time. The love and bond between them were truly incredible.
In that moment, it struck me that my role as a veterinarian extends far beyond providing medical care for animals. I am entrusted with the task of nurturing and celebrating the special bonds between pets and their human companions. It is an honor to be part of their journey and to help families deliver the kind of love and care their special friends deserve. This realization was truly humbling.
Every day, I am privileged to witness the deep connections and incredible love shared between pets and their families. These moments warm my heart and remind me of the profound impact our furry friends have on our lives. I am grateful for each and every one of you for allowing me to be a part of your journey and for making these moments so special. ❤️
As we enter July, I want to wish you all a happy and safe holiday weekend. May it be filled with joy, love, and cherished moments with your furry companions.
With so much love,
Dr. Lily Chen
