Many of our employees have experienced and understand the depth of loss one experiences when a beloved four-legged family member has passed. For that reason, Metropolitan provides a pet loss support group to help grieving owners in need. Our pet group is designed to provide grieving pet parents with a safe, confidential environment to share their feelings with others who have experienced pet loss.
The group is operated by a board certified psychiatrist and veterinary nurses who have experience with pet loss.
Some situations where the support of a group may be beneficial include the following:
Death of a pet
Runaway or lost pet
Living with an elderly, chronically ill or terminally ill pet
Explaining pet loss to a child
