The grief experienced by the loss of an animal companion often goes unrecognised. For many of us, these pets are important and loved family members and losing one is a challenging and emotional experience. There is growing demand for end of life pet care, yet there is still little professional and personal support available for families and pets alike. This introductory workshop will explore options and approaches to the care of dying pets. We will discuss ways to enhance your pets’ quality of life while dying, options for medication, nursing and for dealing with the grief during this time. We will learn about different belief systems of animal spirituality and consciousness and how to assist your beloved companion in their transition from this life.
