The loss of a much-loved pet is something terrible which all of us pet owners have to face at some time.

All the staff here at Bourne Veterinary Practice will do everything we can to make this awful time more bearable for you and your family.

Most people do unfortunately have to make the decision to have their animal put to sleep. It is rare for animals to slip away peacefully and naturally in their sleep and we are usually forced to make the difficult choice to end an animal’s suffering.

Our vets will guide you as to when the time is right. We can arrange for you to bring your pet to us when the surgery is quiet or we can visit you at home at certain times.

For more information and guidance, please contact us during regular opening hours. You may also wish to visit Our Special Friends, who provide practical and emotional support during illness, bereavement or other crises. The Pet Loss Vet is another helpful resource that we recommend to all of our clients.
