Saying Goodbye: End of Life Concerns
This is by far the hardest and most emotional part of being a pet owner. And we are right there with you–it is the hardest part of our jobs, too. We are all pet lovers and truly feel your pain when this time comes. The end of life can be a sad time, a confusing time and one filled with many questions and uncertainties.
It can also be a very peaceful, quiet time of celebration as you reflect on the many years of happiness you have had with your loved one. If you have questions about pet euthanasia or whether or not it is time, we are here to listen and answer questions the best we can.
We realize there are no easy answers. And if you need a tissue along the way, we have plenty. We need them, too. If you need an ear to bend or a shoulder to cry on, we also have many of those. Please let us know how we can help.
