The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine was one of the first colleges in the country to offer a pet loss support line.

As a result, the number of clients utilizing our service has decreased over the last several years. An increase in education about pet loss, as well as new available resources, has also led to a decreased need for this service.
