Description

The intensity of the human-animal bond and the relatively short lifespan of companion animals makes loss and grief inevitable for veterinary medical clients. Assisting clients as they care for animals with life threatening/ending conditions can be stressful for the veterinary medical team. In this presentation we will discuss the process of grieving, delineate strategies for helping clients during this journey, and identify ways in which the veterinary medical team can manage their own stress in working with these clients.

Francesca Tocco is a Masters level social worker that serves as the project coordinator for the TIGER program at the University of Missouri’s College of Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. The program serves as a resource for clients, students, residents, interns, staff, and faculty. In recognition of the strong and lasting mark that companion animals make in the lives of their human counterparts the non-medical decision making process can encompass a range of emotions that benefit from having a mental health professional to speak with. Topics addressed include end of life concerns, anticipatory grief, how to talk to children about animal health and death, ways to memorialize the special bond with a companion animal, resources to help people cope with the loss of their animal, and training for faculty, staff, and students.
