Over the Rainbow
Aug 23, 2018
Our dogs and cats provide us with so many wonderful gifts, including constant unconditional love. The bond we share with our pets is so strong that when itâ€™s time to say goodbye it can be quite devastating.
We at Hillcrest Animal Hospital, truly understand. Not only are we here to guide you through the death and dying process, we continue to be there afterwards through multiple levels of support.
Our hospitalâ€™s loaning library has many books on pet loss for all ages of the family. We feature numerous children books and even journals that help celebrate the special life of your pet.
On our website, you will find a list of helpful internet links on pet loss and grief, including free hotlines that are available.Â This can be found atÂ www.hillcrestah.com/links
The first Monday of every month, we host a free pet loss support group.Â Lead by a Chaplin who has provided a safe place for listening and healing. If you are interested in joining the group, please call us to register.
In the woods behind the hospital, we have a hiking trail for all to enjoy. As you walk along, we have created a rock memorial garden for our beloved pets. These painted rocks line the walkway with all the colors of the rainbow. Itâ€™s beautiful.Â Please come and decorate a complimentary memorial rock anytime.
We hope these options can be helpful during such difficult times and be rest assured that we are here for you as family.
