Our pets are very much part of the family. They are an intregral part of our lives. We know that their life expectancy is generally much shorter than our own, this sometimes leads to owners having to make very difficult decisions about the end of their lives.
Pet Bereavement Support
The nurses and vets at Torbridge Vets are here to help you as an owner make informed decisions about your pet.
If you have any questions, either about the euthanasia procedure itself or maybe to discuss your options for cremation or burial please do not hesitate to contact any one of our surgeries.
Alternatively you can contact: The Pet Bereavement Support Service which is a support line staffed by trained volunteers who have experience of companion animal bereavement themselves and wish to support others through this difficult experience.
You can contact them by phone or email if you would like to talk about your loss with an understanding volunteer.
The Support Line number is 0800 096 6606 (8.30am to 8.30pm). Free calls from all UK landlines.
Here at Torbridge Vets we employ the services of a Pet Crematorium company called Valley Pet Crematorium – You can visit their website on the following link to http://www.valleypetcrematorium.co.uk/ to find out more information about the services they offer.
