Pet Loss Support includes Personal Counseling, Online Library & More
Your canine and feline companions are special members of your family, and their loss is a significant one. Center City Veterinary Hospital offers a uniquely personal pet care experience, from treating your sick and injured pets to our end of life services. We support you throughout the process of losing your pet, and provide trusted resources to assist you in processing this grief.
Pet Loss Library
Our Pet Loss Library is a valuable resource for those who have lost a beloved companion, as well as those anticipating the death of an ill or aging pet. The library offers articles, stories, sharing opportunities, and much more.
This resource is one that can be shared with the entire family, and is intended as a tool to aid adults and children alike in the process of healing. Convenient online access allows all members of the family to address their grief in the privacy of your own home.
