Our Story

StellaPawsitiveChange is a way to honor the memory of my beloved cat, Stella, who tragically lost her life due to veterinary negligence. The site was created to bring awareness to the issue of veterinary malpractice and the lack of accountability in the industry. Through my story and the stories of others, I hope to shed light on this issue and encourage change. Stella’s death was preventable and the veterinarian and clinic responsible for her death have not been held accountable. I hope to change that. Please join me in this fight to raise awareness for improved standards in the veterinary industry.
