Caring for your beloved pet who has become ill, or dealing with the loss of that pet can be devastating for any animal owner. Many of us make deep and lasting connections with our pets and think of them as our best friends and members of our family. When it’s time to deal with a long-term illness or death, we may become overwhelmed and unsure of how to cope with our feelings.
At Penn Vet, while our primary concern is to care for your animal’s health, we are also animal owners, and we understand the difficulty of dealing with strong feelings around a pet’s declining health or long-term illness. That’s why we’ve partnered with Day by Day Pet Caregiver Support, a team of support specialists, providing compassionate and professional support to pet caregivers. Day by Day’s mission is to help pet owners better manage their animal’s medical condition, which leads to an improved quality of life for both you and your pet during difficult times. Day by Day offers our clients a variety of specialized services, tools, and resources, which you may access at no cost.
