This 10 session series is Part II of the Spirits in Transition program. Part II introduces the foundations of hospice care and also allows you to gently familiarize yourself with the stages of dying. While each individual's process is unique, understanding existing commonalities of the phases of dying gives us knowledge about how to best provide an environment supportive to the animal in transition. Options are discussed also for those scenarios when euthanasia is elected to end an animal's life. Special attention is given to how to ease the grieving process for a surviving animal buddy of the one that has passed. Supporting a dying animal is an art that can be learned. Preparing ahead of time will allow you to be aware of your choices whenever the time comes. This session, Session I is the first of two in: Applying Foundational Principles of human hospice in animal care. The instructor of this class, veterinarian Ella Bittel, is recognized by her peers as a leader in animal hospice and has presented on the topic at numerous veterinary conferences.
