End of life care

“Like all vets I hated doing this, painless though it was, but to me there has always been a comfort in the knowledge that the last thing these helpless animals knew was the sound of a friendly voice and the touch of a gentle hand.” 

– James Herriot, All Things Wise & Wonderful

When the time comes to say goodbye to our beloved family pet it can be heart breaking.  As pet owners ourselves we completely understand how this feels.  While incredibly sad, we also take responsibility and pride in making the last moments of a pet’s life pass with peace and dignity. We will always make time to talk with and support you before, during and afterwards.  We are here to help you through this hard time and when words aren’t enough, we will have a box of tissues and a shoulder to cry on.

Our Veterinary Nurse Ali feels passionately about helping people who may be struggling with the loss or impending loss of a beloved family pet. She has completed the Blue Cross Pet Bereavement Support training course to further enable her to offer support to our clients at this hard time.  Being able to talk to someone who understands how you are feeling can be really helpful when it comes to making decisions for your pet and helping you to come to terms with the loss and aid the grieving process. Please get in touch if you would like to talk to Ali.
