Every other Monday from 6-7:30 p.m., the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Virginia Tech offers an animal loss support group for members of the New River Valley community.  

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, this support group will be conducted on Zoom, a remote conferencing software with video capabilities.

You may also call the Virginia Tech animal loss support voicemail helpline at 540-231-8038. A veterinary social worker will respond within two days or the next business day.

If you need immediate support for your animal's health situation, please contact your primary veterinarian.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please go to your nearest emergency room or dial 911.
