Dear Berkshire Barks & Purrs Family,

I am excited to share with you that I have decided to partner with Dr. Carolyn (Carrie) Cannon and Millerton Veterinary Practice in Millerton, NY beginning after this New Year holiday. Millerton is an easy 20minute drive from our current home base in Sheffield, MA. Millerton Veterinary Practice is known for delivering high quality veterinary care. Partnering in animal care with their clients has been their utmost priority for almost 20 years. This is on par with the care and love we have provided to you and your pets for the last 3 years. We will continue to utilize our Fear Free techniques as have been practiced at Millerton Veterinary Practice for over 3 years. Our patient-handling philosophies align to ensure that all pets experience a safe and enjoyable visit, always minimizing fear, anxiety, and stress.

I am aware that change is hard and creates uncertainly, and I have thought long and hard about how this partnership will affect us all. The biggest change will be that mobile services to your home will no longer be available. The logistics in maintaining the two practice protocols has proven too complex to allow me to provide the level of service I feel I must. Joining this practice will bring greater availability and convenience and will ensure your pets receive the care they need in a timelier manner, regardless of my time away from the practice. It gives me peace of mind, knowing that during those times, my clients and patients will be well taken care of. Millerton Veterinary Practice’s excellent and friendly client service representatives will be ready to take care of your needs and are happy to set you up with an appointment with me. All your pets’ medical records will be smoothly integrated into the Millerton Veterinary Practice system, including our online pharmacies.

I hope that you enjoy the remainder of your holidays, and we will see you in the New Year, the same freckle-faced doctor, different address!

Much love and health to you all,
Tracey Fahey, DVM
