Losing a pet is a heartbreaking and emotional time.

Everyone at SPA Vets has experienced the loss of a beloved pet and understands how upsetting it can be. We are lucky enough to be in a working environment where our collegues understand what we are going through but not everyone is so lucky. We've all heard the term "It's only a dog/cat/etc" from those who don't own pets and just don't understand the unique bond we have with our animals.

If you are struggling with the loss of a pet, please feel free to talk to a member of our staff. We are in a unique position to offer support from the perspectives of both an animal lover and that of veterinary professional.

Alternatively, if you would like a more anonymous approach, or to talk to fellow owners, please visit The Ralph Site. This a a non-profit organisation offering support to pet owners where you can find advice or talk to others in a similar situation.
