Animal Specialty Center Pet Loss Support

As pet owners ourselves, the Animal Specialty Center staff understands that facing a pet's serious illness or the loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. To provide pet owners with the help, support and counseling they need to better cope and manage through these very difficult periods, ASC offers no-cost Pet Loss Support Group sessions at our hospital on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, 7:00-8:30 PM. ASC also offers a selection of pet loss materials that can be viewed and/or printed by opening the links in our Pet Loss Document Library.  For more information and to access our Pet Loss Library, please visit our Counseling webpage -- clicking this link will redirect you to the page:
