The death of a pet is a significant occurrence. For some pet owners, the loss can be devastating.

A Loss That Really Matters

At Deer Creek Animal Hospital, we understand it is normal to experience grief after the loss of a pet. Pets are a vital part of our family and our daily lives. For many of us, our pets count among our best friends. Offering unconditional love, they are dear to us. The interactions shared and the act of caring for their needs is an important part of our day-to-day routine. The loss of a pet has an impact on our lives and the resulting sadness we feel can be overwhelming.

Supportive Tools

As is the case after the death of any loved one, we encourage you to actively grieve and memorialize the passing of your friend. We have offered a few tools on our website intended to help with that process.

Our pet loss library features articles written by grief professionals that will address many of the questions you may have when dealing with the loss of a pet.

Experts say memorials can be beneficial to the grieving process. We would be honored if you paid tribute to your pet on our online pet memorials or our pet memorial wall. Light a virtual candle for your lost companion, a tradition that has been performed for hundreds of years.

Allow us to extend our genuine condolences to you at this time. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be helpful in any way. We will also miss your pet, who was our patient and friend.
