Supporting Clients at Time of Euthanasia and Beyond
Pet owner's responses to pet loss are often as emotional as the grief responses accompanying the loss of a human friend or family member. Bereaved pet owners report disruptions in their lives, work roles, and other relationships due to their feelings of grief.
It is appropriate to educate your clients about grief before, during, and after their pets' deaths. The basic content of your educational synopsis should be adapted according to each loss situation. Information about euthanasia procedures or helping children with grief, for example, can be included when appropriate.
Offers a variety of resources to assist you in guiding your clients through the process of euthanasia and assist them in their grief.
