Losing a pet is always difficult, whether death comes from old age, a chronic illness, or an untimely accident. Your friends at Village Veterinary Medical Center offer support and guidance during this sad time.
We encourage you to discuss your end-of-life needs and concerns at any visit, or simply contact our hospital. Compassionate end-of-life support and euthanasia services are available to every patient when that time comes.
In addition, we provide online pet loss services and other resources to address the needs of pet owners and their families. Our pet loss library provides answers to your frequently asked questions about the end-of-life process and grieving after the death of a pet, as well as the option of sharing information and stories with others.
Professional Pet Loss Support
Dealing with the loss of a pet can be a very difficult experience. The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine offers a Pet Loss Support Group through their Veterinary Social Work Program.
This program is designed to assist anyone experiencing grief over the loss of a pet. Meetings are at no charge and are open to anyone whose pet has died or is terminally ill.
