    Our family (including furbabies) are very saddened to hear of this loss. We only knew Dr. Shain from the care and compassion he provided us at the Eudora Animal Hospital and found him to be a wonderful human. We will never forget the time that he chuckled at/with us for being over protective “new parents” of our then puppy after we called or brought her in several times. He assured me I did everything I could for the health of my diabetic cat and those words have always given me comfort in my time of grief. It was an honor to have Dr. Shain a part of our needs and he will be deeply missed. We send our condolences to the family of Dr. Shain and the staff of the Eudora Animal Hospital.



  41. Mary Pat McQueeney on June 17, 2022 at 11:39 am

    Our hearts are heavy with the news of Guy Shain. We have been going to Eudora Animal Hospital since we moved to Lawrence in 93. Ron Lee and Guy Shain has looked after all of our family pets. They always knew us by name and made us feel like a part of the Eudora Animal Hospital Family. It will be very emotional and difficult not to see Guy’s smiling face as he treats our family members. RIP Guy, this family will miss you very much.

    Every tragedy you handled with grace, soft words and gentle heart- much like our grandfather Milton who will be waiting like so many others that died to young ! You’ve passed along that ability to others- to listen – to truly hear what others needed without them saying anything both in our beloved pets, friends and families. Always in love.
