Pet Owner Resources

Simplify Your Visit

We look forward to caring for your beloved pet. Please print and fill out a new client and financial policy form and bring it with you at your first visit. Only one form is required for the first visit based on which service you will be using first. Multiple pets may be listed on one form. Please attach any vaccine and medical history you may have. Filling these out prior to your visit will allow for a quicker check-in process. We want to spend more time working with you and your pet rather than waiting on these forms. Please see a list of our most common forms below. Once you find the form that you need, click the PDF icon to download.

After Hours Service

Unfortunately, we cannot always be there when you and your pet need us.  Thankfully, we have some options to offer you when you and your pet are in need.

Sherwood South Animal Hospital offers a variety of emergency services for you and your pet. They can also be there for you if we cannot in the event you feel it is time for your pet to be euthanized or your pet has already passed and you’re unsure what to do.

Lap of Love is another option for after hours service. Dr. Carly Billeaudeau can assist you with any hospice care or euthanasia services. She will come to your home to perform services.

Grief Counceling

Losing a beloved family pet is never easy. Grieving over their loss is normal. Often times, people feel guilty for having chosen to put their companion to sleep, but we must understand that we have done everything in our power to give them the best, healthiest, happiest life they could ever have had.

Preparing for a time like this is never easy, but going through the normal grieving process for a pet is normal and healthy. Grief takes over the whole body: emotionally, mentally, and physically. While many of us would prefer to grieve alone, seeking out social support may help with coping. Don’t forget to rely on friends and family to push through this difficult time. No one can tell you how long you should grieve. When and how you heal is on your time. Take the time you need to mourn the loss of your pet. If you’re feeling isolated, reach out for help, talk with friends, try to stay active. This isn’t you forgetting your pet. This is you healing.
