Pet Loss Support

As pet owners ourselves, we understand that facing a pet's serious illness or the loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. And in caring for a sick pet and having to make difficult decisions, a family must get clear information on treatment and to evaluate options. Our hospital staff is here to help explore your concerns about treatment choices and managing a sick pet at home and to help you make informed decisions about your loved one. Please know that you can count on our staff for any help or assistance you need during these difficult times.

The 3rd Wednesday of every month our hospital & Delaware Pet Cremation offers a Pet Loss Support Group. It is held upstairs at VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital. 6pm - 7:30pm.

Our Hospital offers a selection of pet loss materials that can be viewed and/or printed by opening the links in the 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 may also be found in the Community Partners section of our website.
