Holding Your Hand While You Grieve the Loss of a Loved One

It is never easy to say good-bye to a beloved family pet. While sometimes nature simply takes it course, there are other times when a pet is suffering from illness or old age and as owners we look for ways to lessen their pain. Our staff will be happy to assist during this difficult time, providing you information on how make your pet comfortable and what options you have in order to preserve your pets dignity during their last days.

Bradley Hills Animal Hospital is here to provide any support and comfort we can during this difficult time. Grieving is a normal process for everyone to go through after losing a loved one. Each of us handles grief in our own way, and we are pleased to provide some helpful resources that may assist you in the grieving process.

Honor your pet by creating a memorial that others can come and visit. This is a nice opportunity for you to tell some of your favorite stories, share memorable photos, and gather support from your friends and family through their posts and comments.

Light a Candle
A candle is a universal sign of hope, courage and strength. Lighting a virtual candle is a wonderful way to remember a pet that has passed away, or honor one that needs some extra encouragement.

Pet Loss Library This great resource provides a wealth of information on pet loss. From articles written by professional grief counselors, to personal stories of pet owners like yourself.

We deeply appreciate your kindness, compassion and understanding during this difficult time of loss of our beloved Cosette. Cosie could not have received better care and we could not have received more considerate service. - Jackie and Ron
