Pet Loss Support Resource Guide

Veterinarians, as caregivers and owners of companion animals themselves, understand how difficult the loss of an animal can be for the entire family. Resources are available to guide your clients through that difficult time.

  • There are support groups dedicated to pet loss support that you can refer your clients to.

The Tenth Good Thing About Barney, Judith Viorst, 1975

Pet Love, Betty White, William Morrow and Company, 1983
