Animal Education Event – Pet Loss and Palliative Care
Join the Animal Community Talks for this animal education event. If you work or volunteer with animals, you know the pain that we experience with their terminal illness and passing. This event will provide you resources to make this time more comfortable for you and your animal companions.

These days there are more ways to keep your pet comfortable during this time than ever before. We will discuss the growing pet hospice movement, quality of life issues, and practical ways pet owners can provide comfort care at their pet’s end-of-life.
