Hospice, Palliative Care & Pet Loss Support

Hospice & Palliative Care

When a pet is in its end of life stages the human animal bond faces obstacles. At Stack Veterinary Hospital we feel it is of the greatest importance to respect and protect life for as long as possible

Hospice and Palliative Care include:

  •                                      Consultation for end of life care
  •                                      Evaluation of your pet’s needs, social well being and emotional well being
  •                                      Education and support through end of life stages

Pet Loss Support Group

At Stack Veterinary Hospital we offer a pet loss support group that is a supportive environment where people can share their varied experiences of grief and loss of a companion animal. The perfect place to remember and honor the life of our companion animals.


If you are interested, please contact our office at (315)478-3161 or email Sally at

“It is my goal to support families and their pets during the final stages of life. The medical advances today have proven to help animals be more comfortable in their final moments. My compassion and drive will support the family's environment and help them spend quality time with their pet during this difficult process. ”
