Veterinary social work is a social work specialty that focuses on the human needs that may arise in veterinary medicine.
Understanding the significance of the human-animal bond is critical to veterinary medicine and at Wheat Ridge our social worker addresses the needs that may arise for both our clients and our staff members. The changing role of animals in our lives has allowed for the development of veterinary social work; our companions are family and our veterinary social worker fully acknowledges this. Our social worker is here to help support pet owners during the emotionally difficult situations that may arise. As pet owners, we may be presented with overwhelmingly complicated situations and our social worker is here to help guide you with empathy and support.
