A unique new book for the veterinary surgeon and other members of the veterinary practice team, this book will help the whole team deal more skilfully, senstitivel and successfully with everyday issues associated with animal death. The book takes a positive and practical approach to the needs of clients, the welfare of animals and the personal and professional well-being of the veterinary practice team. The emphasis throughout is on the importance of trust, sensitivity and good communication at every stage. The death of a much loved animal whether by euthanasia, illness or accident, is extremely stressful. Unfortunately, in veterinary practice, it is a circumstance that cannot be avoided. Performing euthanasia is a frequent and sad task for veterinary surgeons and few receive formal training in the support thjat they can give to pet owners and to each other.
