This man was SO genuinely KIND. My heart hurts for his staff, his family, his patients. The world has lost a good one. My story as to why Dr. Motie was the greatest vet in the world. My wife and I had to save up money for a surgery for our little doggo. Dr Motie knew it took us about 6 months to get enough together. When he started operating he noticed something else was wrong with our little guy and that it wouldn’t be safe to continue without also taking care of that too. I forget the exact cost of this but it was at least a few extra grand that we didn’t have. Dr Motie told us when we came to pick our boy up that he had to do the extra operation and that normally it would be x amount of money. He never asked us to pay it... he immediately said “I know you guys had to save up for this and it was better for “Mikey” to have this taken care of... Happy Thanksgiving ❤️“ Everyone will remember this man for his incredible kindness. I’m glad to say he was my Vet!

I tried reaching Dr. Motie on the phone today; several times. When not getting an answer, I drove to his office in Melbourne ..... only to see a notice on the door stating Dr. Motie had passed. I cried all the way home, thinking of what a kind, compassionate and caring doctor he was. Always had time to talk with you...not at you. Always willing to share his knowledge. I meet Dr. Motie in 1989 and he was the vet for all 3 of my feathered friends. My sympathies to the Motie family. May you rest in peace Dr. Motie. You were the best.

Dr. Motie was my avian vet since 1989. He was very caring and compassionate and would take time to "talk" with me matter what my questions were...and there were many as a new bird owner. When I couldn't get the office by phone today, I drove to down to Melbourne from Merritt Island. I was shocked ... still am .to see the notice of his passing on the door. I cried all the way home. My sympathies to the Motie family. And may you rest in peace, Dr. will be truly missed by were the best!

I concur with all the thoughts and tributes to Dr. Motie. He was my vet for 28 years and took a personal interest in every pet. He was a hands-on vet and I completely trusted him with my animals. I am deeply saddened that we have lost a terrific vet, friend and member of our community. I will miss him forever.

I just called the office and am shocked and saddened to hear the voicemail addressing Dr. Motie’s passing. We moved here from Indiana in 2014 and one of his frequent sayings to me when I questioned him was “You’re not in Indiana anymore!”. Our min pin Jerry was put down in July and he let us stay as long as we could. He’s been treating Karma, our male chihuahua, on and off recently and he always would call him “her”. Our youngest dog Max (11) did not see him other than his annual checkups.....I forgot, he did a teeth cleaning and found a hidden tooth behind a mass. I will so miss him and my sympathies to Veronica and his staff.

The day I learned of Dr. Motie's passing was a blow to my heart, as losing a precious family member. The gift he was to us as a veterinarian is immeasurable. He was there at some of the hardest, and worst times we have experienced. Always patient with my endless worries and questions, and always encouraging for better days, and compassionate when there were no more days to be had. I cannot imagine never seeing his smile, talking over the crazy mishaps that he made turn out okay, or just talking about different things. He always had time for you, and his caring was genuine. To say he is going to be greatly missed as our babies doctor goes without saying. But he will be greatly, and sorely missed for who he was. My heart goes out to his family, and to everyone who loved him, and will be left with a great void at his passing. We will miss him forever. Rest in peace precious one, and may strength and comfort be upon those left behind. ♥️

My condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Motie. I will be forever grateful that he was always there when my furry kids needed him. I will always remember him coming out to the waiting room in between patients; sometimes to follow up on the dogs, to patiently answer more questions and sometimes just to talk. He made me feel safe as I knew my dogs were in good hands. He was a wonderful human who will be missed.

I’m just so sad to know Dr. Motie has passed. And I’m so sorry for those that knew and loved him too. He cared for my standard poodle “Lizzie“ so, so many times over the last 13 years. Although I have been graced by her presence for only the last 5 years, a vet tech at his office was first mom, then another beloved client, now me. Oh the stories he loved to tell of her life. He knew her as a special spirit as I do. I will so miss the wonderful staff. Thank you all. I will miss the frequent bird friends at the sang opera:) Dr. Motie shared so many stories of his own life, I am so grateful to have come to know him as a fellow human being and for his veterinarian skills that saved my Lizzie’s life more than once.
