Pet Loss

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is never easy, be it a human member of the family or a four legged one. Our pets are integral parts of our family, and when a companion passes, the grief we feel is very real.

If you are going through this grieving process, please know you are not alone. Our staff is here 24/7 to assist you in any way possible.

Sometimes we need help explaining the passing of a family pet to a child. Sometimes we need to help an elderly person cope with the loss of their main companion. Sometimes we need help ourselves learning to adjust to our routine without our pet.  If you find yourself in any of these positions, there are many resources currently available to aid in the grieving process; below are links to some of them.

If you are having trouble making decisions about euthanasia, you can complete a Quality of Life Scale to help you evaluate your pet, pain, and overall quality of life. There are several types of these scales available for download online like the link above.

We hope this information is helpful, and remember we are here to support you.
