I am grateful for having a great veterinarian. Over the years, my vet has helped my cats with many issues.
What has your veterinarian done for you and your pets?
If your veterinarian has provided you and your pet exceptional service, write them a handwritten thank-you note! The office or clinic staff can also be mentioned in the message.
Here are some ideas for when you could thank your vet for:
- The veterinarian and the office staff when your pet passed away
- Help you in an emergency situation. When one of our cats mysteriously cut his leg I was very thankful to find a 24-hour emergency veterinarian. Our current veterinarian would have helped at any time of day!
- A high-maintenance pet. Is your veterinarian gentle and understanding with this pet
- Your veterinarian travels to your farm to see your horses or other farm animals
- To show your appreciation whenever your vet solves your pet’s issue.
- You really like how your vet cares for your pet.
You can also express your gratitude and thank your veterinarian on World Veterinary Day, celebrated on the last Saturday of April.
Notes about the examples:
The examples are split into two sections.
The first section includes thank-you note example messages for when your vet helps your cat, dog, or other pet and you want to say thank you.
The second section examples are for thanking your vet after a pet loss, including when the death was by euthanasia. I’ve had experience with cats being euthanized and also dying at home. Pet loss can be very difficult for pet owners.
Also, the examples are only the center section of a thank you note. To see the complete contents of a thank-you note and what else to include, read: how to write a thank you.
Veterinarian Thank You Note Examples
#1 I appreciate you and the office staff. Helping the stray mom cat and her kittens have been more involved than I ever thought possible. Thank you for giving us the stray cat discount to get them all tested for the nasty cat viruses. I am so relieved that they are all okay!
#2 I was worried when my cat lost so much weight. I am grateful that you could diagnose her issue and start treatment. I had no idea cats could have hyperactive thyroid! Thank you for being so thorough when explaining the various treatment options. This helped make my decision of choosing which treatment easier.
#3 I want to let you know how much I appreciate the staff at the office. They are friendly and always take the time to answer my latest cat question. And they are very good about fitting in my cat at the last minute when they are sick.
#4 Thank you for figuring out what was wrong with Violet! She had been so itchy lately. The allergy medicine is working already, and she seems much more comfortable.
#5 Thank you for being willing to work with Jake. He can be difficult to manage when he is scared. You seem to have the touch to calm him down. I appreciate your gentle and kind way with him as he responds well and can get his annual shots.
#6 Thank you for coming to the farm when issues come up with the animals. I appreciate how far you travel and that the animals can be treated at the farm. Thanks again for your service. [including a gas gift card in the note would be a nice thank you gift.]
#7 I want to thank you for seeing my dog, Nala when she needed emergency care last Sunday after eating chocolate desserts. I am grateful that you were able to meet me at your office and help her. She is doing much better, and I feel that you saved her life!
#8 Thank you for your dedication to my cats and other pets. You’ve been a wonderful veterinarian for many years. I appreciate that you always ask if I have any other questions at the end of every visit. Thank you for being awesome!
#9 You are the best vet! Thank you so much for agreeing to see the feral cat. He sure was feisty. I am very grateful that you treated him while he was in the trap.

I hope these examples helped you to write a thank you note to your veterinarian. Thanking your vet for caring for your beloved pet with a thank you note is an awesome way to show your gratitude and appreciation.
Your veterinarian can be thanked when times are good for routine care for your pet. And it’s kind to thank your vet after your pet’s death, especially if they were involved in treatment as your pet declined or euthanasia.
