Our animal hospital offers grief counseling services for owners with very sick or terminally ill pets or for owners coping with pet loss. Grief upon the loss of a pet is a normal response and also a very individual one. Grieving is a complex process which includes a number of stages including, denial, bargaining, anger, sadness, and resolution. The stages often appear as a complex series of emotions and feelings. In most instances, the grieving process may continue up to a year. It has been shown that when grief can be expressed, the time needed for healing is often less. We are here to offer support and help you through this time. Please don't hesitate to reach out to our staff or veterinarians for help or guidance at any time.
