Pet Loss Support Group
Our animal hospital would like to introduce a new service that we are offering to our valued clients and the general public. The Pet Loss Support Group was established to provide compassionate, emotional support to families who have experienced or anticipate the death of their companion animal or whose pets have gone missing.
Support groups provide a safe, judgment free, and structural environment in which members can feel comfortable releasing strong emotions, with the understanding of others whom are experiencing similar feelings. Members will also be educated in the psychological process of their grief.
Group members benefit from the realization that their painful experience is shared by others and completely normalizes these feelings in a society that does not always understand.
The group will be facilitated by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker that specializes in grief and hospital employees will be present to assist with general animal education as well.
*Family members of all ages are welcome.
