Wednesday, November 2, 2016

In the first in this series of articles, the need for careful and compassionate communication with clients around end-of-life care for pets was discussed. The concept of using regular quality-of-life assessments as an opportunity to address end-of-life at an appropriate time was also examined. This article will focus on the period of the pet's passing, including the nature of the veterinarian's role in advising on and carrying out euthanasia. Veterinary professionals have to deal with this situation frequently.
