TommyWe at Groveport Canal Animal Hospital understand the hardships when faced on making difficult medical decisions for pets. Serious medical conditions, young or old, can be unexpected and cause stress for the whole family. Our staff are always available to help guide you through these difficult situations to help make the best decision for you, your family and your pet. Grief from losing a pet is real and nothing to ever feel ashamed of. Again, our staff are available for you whether you need to talk or just for someone to listen, without ever feeling judged.

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.”

(Vicki Harrison)
