Berks Animal Emergency and Referral Center provides end-of-life care and pet loss grief support for you and your family. We appreciate the complexity associated with making end of life decisions for your pet. We are here to support your decision, and to provide support and information to factor into your decision.

End-of-Life Support

Our caring and compassionate veterinary staff is available to offer insight and options for your end of life decision. We realize the importance of this decision. We can review all of the medical options available for your pet, and advise you on key quality-of-life considerations. We are respectful that this is a very personal decision, and we are here to honor your wishes and support you.

Pet Euthanasia Services

If you determine euthanasia is best for your pet, we can provide euthanasia services at our clinic. We can offer a dedicated comfortable room, providing a private and peaceful location for you and your family.

Pet Cremation Services

We are available to assist you with the coordination of a cremation service for your pet. You have the option to have your pet’s ashes returned to you or a communal cremation. We will listen and support your wishes during this difficult time.

Pet Loss Resources

In an effort to support you during this difficult time, we have assembled grief support resources to help you and your family. Information on coping with pet loss can be found by visiting our pet loss library. Additionally, you may also honor your pet’s memory by creating an online pet memorial page, lighting a virtual candle or visiting our pet memorial wall.

We understand the difficulty associated with saying goodbye to a furry companion. Mostly all of our staff has gone through this same emotional process.
