|The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) recognizes the unique and enduring bonds that form between people and their animals – animals who are family members, confidantes, partners, and best friends. When these bonds are tested by illness, behavior problems, injury, or death, it can feel overwhelming.||Additional Resources|

As an important part of the veterinary team, our social workers are here to care for “the other end of the leash” (or lead rope): YOU.
