New pet loss support group formed

A pet loss support group is now meeting on Tuesday evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the UF Small Animal Hospital.

The group sessions, which began on Feb. 17, are being held in the “quiet room” space near the dermatology examination rooms. The sessions are open to clients of the UF Veterinary Hospital as well as to any students, faculty or staff member who might benefit from attending.

“The group is something I have wanted to do since accepting this position,” said Dr. Ron Del Moro, a licensed mental health counselor and group co-facilitator who works for the hospital. “I am a big believer in the power of groups and community in general. Groups are a great place to really understand that one is not alone in what one is experiencing.”

Del Moro will be working with his counseling intern, Laurel Nesbit, who will serve as co-facilitator, in conducting the sessions.
