We are happy to announce that we now have our very own Bereavement Support Advisor. Tessa, one of our Receptionists, has completed a Pet Loss & Bereavement Support Advisor Course through Innovet-CPD Training, as well as completing an 8 week course on Pet Bereavement Support Skills run by The Blue Cross. She has always had an interest in mental health and wellbeing and, with the support of the practice, has grasped the opportunity to develop this further.
Our team always aims to provide gold standard care for our clients before, during and after your pet’s treatment. This includes providing as much support as possible once the difficult decision has been made. Unfortunately, on a daily basis our team deals with human grief, a sad but unavoidable part of our love for animals. We feel Tessa will be able to assist greatly during this period, being a source of knowledge and a friendly face whenever needed. Whether a discussion, helpful literature or even just a cup of tea and somebody to listen, Tessa is passionate about going the extra mile for owners during such an upsetting time.
If you think you would like to talk to Tessa about your own pet, please contact our Burcote Road clinic on 01327 350239 where our team will happily be able to put you through to her.
