Grieving for the loss of a pet, whether through death, parting or enforced separation, can be a difficult and sometimes devastating experience. Life once filled with the love and friendship of a pet, may suddenly seem very empty and feelings of deep sadness and loneliness are not uncommon. Sometimes it helps to share these feelings with others who know from personal experience how distressing the loss of a pet can be, and who will listen with compassion and without judgment.

The Animal Hospital of Ft Lauderdale offers a Pet Loss Support Group providing a safe, supportive environment where thoughts and emotions can be shared with those of similar circumstances, and feelings of grief are understood and validated. Our Pet Loss Support Group is facilitated by Luba Bozanich, LCSW, CAP LPC a licensed psychotherapist specializing in grief, loss and crisis counseling.

Our pet Loss Support Group meets the third Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm at our hospital. Both clients and non-clients are welcome to attend.
