Today we had to make the tough decision as a Close vet clinic family to put down our dearest Maki. It is never easy to let go of a pet. They become an ingrained part of your life and family, making it that much more difficult to say goodbye. He had 17 great years, 9 of which were spent being loved by us. We know Maki was also beloved by everyone who stepped into the clinic as he was often the first face they'd see when they walked through the door. He will be greatly missed by all. R.I.P. Makavely, we love you ♥️
