Grief Counseling

As pet owners ourselves, our staff understands that the loss of a pet or dealing with a pet's serious illness can be emotionally devastating. For pet owners struggling with the loss or imminent loss of a pet, we offer a complimentary Pet Loss Support Group. This group meets on the second Tuesday of every month from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm. These sessions are hosted by our hospital's social worker, Jennifer Scanlon.
