Grief Counseling

The death of a pet can be extremely upsetting, sometimes even more so than you anticipate. We share a close bond with our pets, so letting go is never easy, and is often filled with emotional distress, sadness, depression—even anger. Our team understands these feelings, as all of us have lost pets of our own. The emotions we go through on losing a pet are real and nothing to be ashamed of.

In veterinary medicine we have the ability to humanely euthanize, or put a pet to sleep when he or she is suffering and we have done all we can to help him or her.  This is a blessing for the pet, but it is a very painful and heart wrenching decision for the owner to make.  We recognize this and will do all we can to assist you during this difficult time.

Whether your loss is recent or you’ve been grieving for weeks, we are here to help you through this sad transition. We can also help your children understand and cope with their feelings. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
