Estate planning encompasses many important factors that illustrate what you want to have happen to your property once you are deceased. This careful decision making and planning requires great forethought and assistance from an estate planner, lawyer, or other trusted advisor.

Obviously, if you have dependents and loved ones, you will want to include them in your will, but what about your pet companions?

Since our pets depend on us totally for their good care, they, too, need to be included in our end of life plans. This is why the team at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital wants to express how important putting your pet in your will is, as well as giving you some helpful suggestions for the steps to take.
