To My Valued Clients and Friends,

I am writing this letter to inform you of a life-changing decision which I have made regarding the Animal Healing Center. To put in concisely, I have encountered some health problems that prevent me from practicing and I will be closing my practice effective immediately.

 I moved to Boise in 2008, and have worked diligently since that time to bring caring and affordable veterinary services to the community. I have tried to create an environment for you and your pets where you would always feel welcome. I have had the pleasure and honor of getting to know so many of you and your furry companions: both during times of joy and celebration as well as during times of worry, sadness, and loss. It has been a special, interesting, and fulfilling journey, but now I must leave my post and focus on my health.

 As I move to the next phase of life’s journey, I wish to thank all of you for the warmth and kindness you have shown my staff and I at the Animal Healing Center.

 Wishing all of you the very best.


Patricia Saras DVM
