Hospice care for pets

There is an article in today's paper about a Dr Karen Randall who provides in-home hospice care for pets. <sniff>

I knew that but did a double-take when I saw the name!

I figured you did, but wanted to nip any confusion in the bud!

It's something I don't even want to think about, yet!!! But I DO have a good friend who is a vet, and I know that if I had an animal who needed in-home veterinary care at the end, she would give it.

We have a vet in my city who offers in-home euthanasia. I considered this when my previous Hav (pictured in my avatar) was dying of heart failure. I ended up not using her, but I think it's a wonderful resource.

My daughter used that option in VT when her dog was in the final stages of kidney failure and this morning at the gym, I was speaking with a neighbor who had recently used the service of a local vet for his aged lab. I understand that after 25 years of being a primary vet, she decided to specialize in in-home euthanasia. (Don't know how she does it)! I didn't have that option with Bailey, my first Havanese, but I think it's a great idea if a pet is in the final stages of life.

It is a horrible thing to think about but having actually used in-home euthanasia for my two Cavaliers I wouldn't hesitate in doing so again - they were peaceful at home surrounded by people that loved them and it was far less traumatic than having to go to the vet....
