Euthanasia—knowing when it's time:
The hardest question you have to face as a pet owner. Dr. Mary Gardner wants to help your pets have a perfect ending to their perfect life.

Mary Gardner, DVM, a co-founder of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, recorded this video. She has three things she wants pet parents to consider:

1. What ailment does your pet have? A dog with arthritis will have a very different progression of signs than a cat with heart failure or kidney failure."I want you to speak with your veterinarian," Dr. Gardner says directly to your clients, "and discuss all those symptoms that they're going to face and also what treatment options and medications you can do to make sure that they're comfortable."
2. What is your pet's personality? This is to ensure that whatever measures you will have to take, whether subcutaneous fluids or even administering a pill, will be OK with the pet. "We want to make sure still have a bond with your pet and make sure that their quality of time with you is still good," says Dr. Gardner.
3. What are your personal beliefs? Some clients want to take whatever measures they can to prolong their pet's life, while others may be ready to say goodbye sooner rather than later. "There's no right or wrong option," says Dr. Gardner. "We just want to make sure that as pets struggle, that we just don't push them until they're suffering."

It's National Kids and Pets Day. While pets can be wonderful companions for children, there are risks to acknowledge when kids and animals live alongside each other. For example, half of all dog bite victims are children.

Veterinarians should educate their clients about dog bite prevention, and parents should teach their children. See our educational resources and more at http://bit.ly/2q5tajC.
