Veterinary Social Work

Care for the Human-Animal Bond

We recognize that your animals are a beloved part of your and your family’s lives. Similar to hospital or medical social workers in other health care settings, the veterinary social work service is available to help you navigate every step of your pet’s care. This may include talking through treatment options, facilitating communication, or offering support for decision-making.
