We are committed to promoting advancements that improve the health and well-being of animals, people and the environment. We recognize the unique and lasting bonds that exist between humans and their horses, as well as other companion animals. As a crucial member of the veterinary team, our social worker provides counseling and support by focusing on the needs of individuals and families.
Our social worker is on-hand to provide free counseling and support if your horse experiences an emergency, sudden illness or is being treated for a chronic condition.
Our social worker advocates for you by helping you navigate difficult decisions regarding your horse’s health. Counseling is available for support around pet loss, grief, parent-child discussions and other challenges that you may experience.
You Are Not Alone
