Coping with Pet Loss
Everyone handles the loss of a pet differently, both adult and child. We, the staff of Franklin Lakes Animal Hospital, understand this. We have also experienced the loss of a pet, a valued family member, at some point in our lives. With that in mind a list of resources has been compiled to help you and your family through this difficult time. As your pet’s medical care provider our staff has been with you and your pet, in some cases, from “infancy” to “senior ” care and we want to support you through this time as well. We hope the following resources are of some assistance in your grieving process.
- Tufts University pet loss support hotline: https://www.tufts.edu/vet/petloss/

Of course if you are feeling overly distraught or depressed it is recommended that you seek professional, one-on-one counseling. We care about you as much as we cared about your beloved pet.
