Support Information for Pet Loss
The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) recognizes the unique and enduring bonds that form between people and their animals – animals who are family members, confidantes, partners, and best friends. When these bonds are tested by illness, behavior problems, injury, or death, it can feel overwhelming.
Hours: Monday-Friday 9 AM to 4:30 PM. Other evening appointments available by advance request.
Please call our Pet Loss Hotline at (877) GRIEF-10.
