Don’t forget we close at 4pm on New Year’s Eve and reopen Monday, January 3rd at 8am

Dear Newtown Vet Family,

Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Gratitude is a concept that can be broken down into three parts, one being recognition, the next being acknowledgment, and the last being appreciation. Many of you have demonstrated the impact this can have on our day to day lives and beyond. In a time where this quality may be harder to come by, we are constantly reminded by your kind words and gestures.

Veterinary medicine attracts people from many different backgrounds and beliefs and ties us to a common goal – to take the best care of the animals (and their humans) in our care. For a while, we were working behind closed doors for the safety of both you and our staff and we recognize the trust this involves. When emotions are high, we thank those of you who maintained your patience and kindness towards our staff, it does not go unrecognized. 

It goes without saying that Newtown Vet has created a unique community. It is with tender hearts that we announce our goodbye to both Dr. Angela Summers and Dr. Judith Palm this year. Both doctors undoubtedly made positive impacts on our lives as well as the clients and patients they cared for. We wish them both the best, they will be missed by all!  As we say goodbye to them for now, we also welcome our newest family member, Dr. Bairstow’s family has grown by one beautiful little girl and we could not be happier. 

After another unpredictable year, we want to thank you all for your kindness and generosity. We would not be the community we are without you. We recognize this, acknowledge it, and appreciate it.

The Doctors and Staff
