PET LOSS AND GRIEVING

"Our pets' lives are too short; their only fault really." -Agnes Turnbull

Losing a loved family member is undoubtedly very difficult whether it is from a chronic illness or a sudden loss. We work with you with compassion and understanding to help make appropriate end-of-life decisions. If the situation arises, and you must choose euthanasia to end suffering or for a terminal illness, we ensure that your pet departs peacefully, painlessly, and with dignity. Our euthanasia services include:

 

  • Compassionate support through the decision-making process

  • Special appointment times and home euthanasias by special request

  • Emotional support through the euthanasia process

  • Burial or cremation options

  • Donations to your animal charity of choice in memory of your pet

Pet Burial and Cremations

 

We utilize the services of Hartsdale Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York for burial and cremation. This was the first pet cemetery created in the United States in 1896 and was begun by a New York City veterinarian.

Grieving a Loss

 

Our pets provide companionship, emotional support, and unconditional love and we consider them as part of the family. So when that special relationship comes to an end, it is only natural to grieve. We have compiled a list of resources which we have found helpful in coping with the loss of a pet:
