VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital

Pet Loss Support

As pet owners ourselves, we understand that facing a pet's serious illness or the loss of a pet can be emotionally devastating. And in caring for a sick pet and having to make difficult decisions, a family must get clear information on treatment and to evaluate options. Our hospital staff is here to help explore your concerns about treatment choices and managing a sick pet at home and to help you make informed decisions about your loved one. Please know that you can count on our staff for any help or assistance you need during these difficult times.

The 3rd Wednesday of every month our hospital & Delaware Pet Cremation offers a Pet Loss Support Group. It is held upstairs at VCA Kirkwood Animal Hospital. 6pm - 7:30pm.

Our Hospital offers a selection of pet loss materials that can be viewed and/or printed by opening the links in the Pet Loss Document Library below. Included is a wealth of information from well-known and respected counselors/authors on the topics of bereavement and pet loss. Pet loss support resources may also be found in the Community Partners section of our website.

Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
