Dog Cancer Survival Kit
Dr. Dressler’s Dog Cancer Kit includes everything to help your dog fight cancer!
22 October 2015
Some really touching words in this thread and the links you have provided. I recently came across another good resource at pet loss and grief which has tons of further reading to help when that sad time comes.
This post written by a Hank's Mom, a Tripawds member who happens to be a vet, is must-reading for anyone struggling with knowing "when it's time."
So, then, how do we know? How do we know when it’s the right time? The right time to minimize suffering and maximize quality of life? The right time to be able to be strong and say good-bye? How do we know if its too early? Or too late? I have realized that this type of thinking will send most down a rabbit hole they don’t want anything to do with. But, really, it is very, very simple…..
If there's a higher than normal chance that your pet could pass away at the hospital, this helpful post by Dr. Nancy Kay has tips for making sure you are there when it happens.
Here's a great resource we just discovered for anyone coping with loss.
Support for pet loss grief before, during and after . . .
