Stages of Grief

Stages of grief can be complex. This chart may help you as well as your client understand the emotions they are experiencing.

 

PET HOSPICE SERVICES

What is veterinary hospice?

Veterinary Hospice is a family-centered, medically supervised, and team-oriented service dedicated to maintaining comfort and quality of life for the terminally ill or geriatric pet until natural death occurs or the family elects euthanasia.

Modeled originally from human hospice, this specific type of veterinary care is focused on the comfort of your pet, not at finding a cure for his or her disease. It is important to note that veterinary hospice does not include any diagnostic or blood-work services. Their goal is to focus on comfort and maintaining the human animal bond.

For more information on a wonderful hospice service, visit Lap Of Love here.
