Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the author/guest editor makes quite clear, this is one of the subjects that is neither an emphasized subject in the Veterinary educational process for today's small animal practitioner. Unless you are a Clinical or Surgical Oncologist in a hospital/hospice for homo sapiens, or have access to one when the time of need comes, as your dog ages, spend some time with this book. It is a great guide for the owner struggling with the need for such care and facing that brick wall of obsolescence in clinical veterinary medicine that has been taught to believe that the only form of palliative and/or hospice care for your canine is euthanasia. Far too many canines and their benevolent owners are faced with such a recommendation because their Veterinarian has made the economic judgement for them, or the local system of Veterinary care is not adequately staffed to deal with the process of the continuation of life, even with certain limitations as to its quality, nor the support structure for the owner of that ailing pet. If you hear words such as "Its the humane thing to do", or "to put him/her 'out of their misery'", run, don't walk to an alternate source of end of life care. If you doubt this, first ask yourself, then ask your Veterinarian this question "Would you have your child put to death by a physician if they presented in a human medical facility"?. There are many alternatives to "Euthanasia" as indicated herein, so now ask this second question, "If Euthanasia is the "right thing to do" why do we always have to use Euphemisms such as "Put to sleep" when discussing it. There is a simple answer, who would want to have their Veterinarian just "kill their pet with what they think is minimal pain and suffering, in a way similar to what is used as "Capital Punishment" in humans just to that they, as owners, will not have to fulfill their commitment to its care throughout its lifetime.
