End of Life Care

Arbor View Animal Hospital is here for you and your pet, from the moment we first meet you, to the moment it is time to say goodbye. Pets are members of our families and having to say goodbye can be one of the hardest things a loving family has to do.

When you are making the difficult decisions about end-of-life-care for your pet, please know that the veterinarians and staff of Arbor View Animal Hospital are here to help you through this process. We understand how hard it is to weigh the condition of your pet and his or her quality of life. We will take the time to discuss with you the physical and emotional factors involved in making end-of-life decisions and will give you the time you need to consider your pet’s unique situation.

Care Pet Loss Helpline

A Grief Counselor is available on Wednesdays from 1pm-5pm and will return calls within 24 hours if a message is left.
