Losing a pet can be devastating. Our pets are family members and the grieving process can be very difficult following the death of a treasured companion animal.
Our vets are happy to speak with you at any time. It can especially be helpful to talk if your pet has an advanced illness or is getting old and frail and you are concerned about the difficult decisions ahead.
If you feel you need support and help after the loss of a pet, you might find the following information and links useful:
