As a Licensed Professional Counselor, pastoral counselor, educator and someone who has experience working with people and animals in various settings, my experience is in celebrating the human-animal bond, specifically helping people who are healing from the loss of a pet. We know that pets are valued members of our families. It can be heartbreaking anytime we lose someone close to us, but embarrassment, shame, and confusion can further complicate the genuine grief of pet loss. When the grief isn’t acknowledged, the heart gets stuck and this, in turn, prevents us from truly living our best life. The beauty of healing from pet loss is that the energy once dominated by grief can now be redirected to serving and helping others. Please let me know how I can be of service to you on your journey in commemorating your beloved companion.
Dr. Sara has provided compassionate End-of-Life care for the companion animals of the Piedmont since 2011. Greensboro Mobile Veterinary Housecalls provides care for geriatric and terminally ill patients. This care includes Geriatric Consutations, Personalized Hospice Plans for your whole family, Hospice and Palliative Care, and In-Home Euthanasia when it is time for your pet to become an angel.
This is a very personal time for you and your pet and will be handled with love and dignity. During the final moments of their lives, pets deserve to be surrounded by familiarity, comfort, everything they love, and everything or being that has loved them. This time is difficult enough without the trauma of a dramatic and often impersonal clinical experience.
Dr. Sara can also handle the arrangements for pet cremation, if desired. This includes gentle, loving, respectful transportation to the crematorium for these services.
