Supporting clients and patients before, during and after euthanasia or pet loss is an integral part of medical care. We provide support for both owner and pet to help make this difficult time as stress-free as possible, so that our families can focus on recovery and healing.
We provide a comprehensive list of internet and counseling resources, but nothing takes the place of real human interaction. If you have questions, concerns, or please call or email. We are always there to help our clients through this process.
