Pet Loss Library & Memorial Options From Crescenta Valley Veterinary Hospital

The bonds between pets and people are significant and long lasting. When our animal companion dies, the loss we experience creates an empty space in our lives and hearts. Crescenta Valley Veterinary Hospital is here to support you during this time.

Whether your pet passed after an abrupt illness or you had time to prepare for the inevitable, the sorrow you feel is real and can often be substantial. We offer supportive services to help you cope by providing information, a place to share, and the opportunity to celebrate the life of your special pet.

Pet Loss Library

The pet loss library is a valuable resource for those who have lost an animal companion, as well as those who are anticipating the death of an aging or ill pet. You will find answers to frequently asked questions about grieving, both before and after the death of a pet. In addition, you can read stories about other pets and their owners and have the opportunity to share your stories with others.

This resource is one that can be shared with the entire family and is intended as a tool to aid adults and children alike in the process of healing. Convenient online access allows all members of the family to explore their feelings in the privacy of your own home.

Pet Memorial Tributes

Celebrate the life of your animal companion with a custom pet memorial page. This special tribute includes the opportunity for pet owners to post slideshows and videos, photos, and stories depicting your deceased pet. This online memorial also includes a visitor guestbook to document the thoughts and memories of friends and family.

Other ways we help you honor your animal companion include:

  • Light a candle—Our pet owners are encouraged to light a virtual candle in memory of your deceased pet.

The Rainbow Bridge Poem is a beautiful tribute to a deceased pet.

End-of-Life Care

Whatever your veterinary needs at end of life, we offer humane care that exceeds expectation. Your pets should be allowed to pass from the world in peace and comfort, surrounded by those who love them.
