In-Home Pet Euthanasia Techniques: The Veterinarian’s Guide to Helping Families and Their Pets Say Goodbye in the Comfort of Home

 Author: Dr Kathleen A Cooney DVM  Category: Adult, Educational, Illustrated, Pet Loss & Bereavement, Professionals  Publisher: Kathleen Cooney  : July 20, 2011  Language: English

I originally created this book to train my own doctors on the intricacies of in-home euthanasia. Within the first year of writing, I began receiving calls from veterinarians around the country looking for guidance as they began their own similar service and thus the book has become a guide for all vets. “This is the book today’s veterinary team members should read about companion animal euthanasia. Dr. Cooney achieves just the right balance with the medical procedures she describes and the client communication and support techniques she suggests. Well-written and realistically illustrated, this book is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to create a mobile euthanasia practice or veterinary pet hospice program.” –Laurel Lagoni, M.S. Director of Veterinary Grief Resources, , World by the Tail, Inc. Co-founder and former Director, Argus Institute for Families and Veterinary Medicine, Colorado State University Inside you will learn about client communication, scheduling tips, pre-euthanasia sedation protocols, pet loss support, marketing strategies, and of course, euthanasia techniques. I have also included 25 common questions from clients along with my answers. The techniques are tried and true. My hope is that by reading this book, you will harness the knowledge to be as successful as we are, and with your talents, be even more so. I want to personally extend an invitation to email me if you wish to converse about the book and your business. Your success means families in your community will receive the care they need and that’s what it’s all about.
