The long-popular animal hospital in the shopping center at Diamond Heights has closed. A sign on their door says they were forced to file for bankrupty.
Their website carries this notice:
To Our Loyal Clients and Beloved Pets:
It is with our deepest regret that we are forced to announce that we are closing the Animal Hospital. The crushing economic recession has made it impossible for us to continue business and has forced the hospital into bankruptcy. With great sorrow, our doors are now closed.
We will miss the relationships forged with our clients and all opportunity to provide on-going medical care and health-wellness services. It has been our pleasure to serve you and your wonderful pets. Each and every one of you will be missed. As fellow animal lovers, your pets have a special place in our hearts.
To those among our professional community, We at the Animal Hospital have greatly enjoyed the professional relationship we have had with you, and we deeply appreciate the wonderful support and services many have given us during the last 3 years in which we operated the hospital. We maintain great pride in the fabulous team of support staff we had gathered at the very end and deeply regret losing them by our closing. Every one of them has left with our highest recommendation, and we hope you will consider them when you have need of great support staff and wonderful people.
