Pet Loss

Losing A Pet

Losing a pet is like losing a family member. Sometimes it helps to talk to others who are going through the same experience or who know how you are feeling. We want you to know if you need support, the doctors and staff at Hickory Small Animal Hospital ar always here for you. If you need to speak with a professional counselor, other people who are going through the same thing or just want to listen and offer support to others, we have two excellent resources available to you, free of charge. Please make use of their services as often and as long as you need to get through this difficult time.
