VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center Pet Loss Support

As pet owners ourselves, the staff at VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center understands that facing a pet's serious illness or the loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. We know also that to care for a sick pet, a family must receive clear information concerning treatment and evaluating options and, sometimes, making difficult decisions. Our hospital's veterinarians and staff are here to help you explore your concerns about treatment choices and managing a sick pet at home. You can count on our staff to assist you in every way that we can during times of crisis.

VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center is sensitive to our clients and cares about their needs and has a Comfort Room, where pet owners can spend peaceful time with seriously ill pets.

VCA Shoreline Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center offers a selection of pet loss materials that can be viewed and/or printed by opening the links in our Pet Loss Document Library below. Included is a wealth of information from well known and respected counselors/authors on the topics of bereavement and pet loss. Pet loss support resources can also be found in the 'Community Partners' section of our website under the 'Our Hospital' tab.
