8 Ways To Help Your Dog Deal With The Grief Of Losing A Family Pet

Name

As stated in #8 of the attached article, animals understand death and are as much a part of the family unit as the humans are. The staff of Claire Place understand this and encourage owners, whenever possible, to have their other dogs present during an at-home euthanasia service, to allow them to say goodbye. This provides the closure of knowing that their friend has passed on, not simply vanished.

Thank you for choosing Claire Place Veterinary Hospice

We are often asked “How can you provide this service?  That is the saddest job ever!”  For those that have experienced it, saying goodbye to our furry family member at home, surrounded by loved ones can be the calmest, most peaceful gift we can provide them when prolonged suffering is inevitable and our pet’s comfort and quality of life are in question.

Perhaps the greatest lesson of hospice care is to simply enjoy each other in the time that is gifted to us, and to prepare for the next phase where one soul is shifting to a new existence while the rest of us brace to stay behind.

Our hearts go out to each and every one of you.  Thank you for choosing Claire Place Veterinary Hospice.
