The next installment in our Pet Education Seminar Series is Introduction to Pet Hospice, by Dr Lauren Shell DVM from Lap of Love. It will be Weds. January 24 at 7pm at the Waltham Public Library.
When our senior four-legged family members start to struggle, it can often make us feel powerless. Many pet parents find it difficult to know when it is time to say goodbye to their faithful friend, or whether their pet’s quality of life is still okay. Dr. Lauren Shell is a hospice veterinarian with Lap of Love who helps owners and their pets navigate the uncertain waters of this transition while in the comfort of their homes.
Join us as we discuss:
What hospice care is and what it is not
Resources to help determine quality of life
How education and planning can provide clarity for knowing when “it’s time”
The euthanasia appointment: saying goodbye with care and dignity
