How does the Pet Vet in Acme Help You to Cope with Pet Loss?

Our pets grow up with us and see us through the good times and the bad.  They are our faithful friends that love and appreciate us no matter what.  Because of this we form very special bonds with them and losing them is like losing a family member.  It is common for us to seek counseling in order to help us grieve the loss of a human friend or family member, but what can you do to help you get through the loss of a pet?  Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine offers a Pet Loss Support Hotline that is available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30 – 9:30pm.  You can contact them at 517-432-2696.  Or you can even attend one of their free Pet Loss Support Groups that meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month.  For more information about the Pet Loss Support Group call 517-432-5967.  If you are in the Grand Traverse area and are looking for someone local to reach out to please call the MSW Bereavement Coordinator at 231-935-6520 to be connected with someone.

Northern Michigan Veterinary Hospital is currently the only veterinary hospitals in Northern Michigan that holds an annual Pet Memorial Service.  Every year on the 3rd Thursday in May we host the “Lost but Not Forgotten” Pet Memorial.  We have created this service in order to help our clients remember and celebrate the lives of their cherished pets.  This one hour service is a time to talk, cry and remember all the wonderful times spent with our furry or feathered companions.  In conjunction with the memorial services we create a photo book with pictures and poems of each of our client’s pets that have passed away during the year.  If you would like to participate in the service or submit a photo of your pet for our photo book please contact our office at 231-938-9500.
