Pet Bereavement


Our pets enrich are lives in so many ways which can make saying goodbye extremely hard and painful.

Our staff are deeply sympathetic and understanding having all experienced the loss of beloved pets. We offer compassionate and heartfelt advice regarding the sensitivities of euthanasia. When the time is right for this difficult decision, we aim to make this as peaceful and as dignified as possible. This can be arranged with a home visit if preferred.

Private cremation and return of ashes can be arranged here at the practice.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or wish to discuss your options in more detail.


Grief is different for everyone and therefore we have listed a range of resources below which can provide you with further information and support during this difficult time.
