Expert Advice for Your Ailing or Aging Pet: The Final Paw of the Journey
Many of us consider our special animals as family members or best friends. When
they age or their health declines, we want to do all we can to take care of them. And it’s important
to take care of ourselves too by being educated about illness and loss.
This panel presentation will feature a veterinary expert who will discuss keeping senior pets
healthy and caring for ailing pets. A pet loss counselor will share insights about the difficult decision
of euthanasia that we sometimes face as well as how to cope following pet loss. A pet funeral services
professional will share options for arrangements that can be helpful to think about in advance while not under the immediate
emotional stress of pet loss.
Attendees are invited to bring pet food, towels, cat litter
or monetary contributions for the Humane Society of Western Pennsylvania. Held in conjunction with National Pet Week sponsored
by the American Veterinary Medical Association.
