Pet Loss Support

As pet owners ourselves, the staff at VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists understands that facing a pet's serious illness or the loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. We also know that to care for a sick pet, a family must receive clear information concerning treatment and evaluating options and, sometimes, making difficult decisions. Our hospital's veterinarians and staff are here to help you explore your concerns about treatment choices and managing a sick pet at home. We are sensitive to our clients' needs and provide two client comfort rooms, where pet owners can spend peaceful time with seriously ill pets. You can count on our staff to assist you in every way that we can during times of crisis.

VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists offers a selection of pet loss support materials that can be viewed and/or printed by opening the links in our Pet Loss Support Document Library below. Included is a wealth of information from well-known and respected counselors/authors on the topics of bereavement and pet loss.
