Proud to be Affiliated

Several months ago, I was called to a friendâ€™s home immediately after the passing of his beloved wife. After visiting for an hour or so with the family, I noticed that the deceasedâ€™s little Maltese was limping. When I questioned the sister of my friend, I was told that she was being taken care of and that the family had been very surprised that the Hospice caretaker had taken an interest in Angel and had offered veterinary care as a service to the family. I was not surprised as I am very familiar with the program through our veterinary hospital. I was very pleased however to see the program being used in the manner it was intended and, I felt proud to be affiliated with such a program. Little Angel never left my friendâ€™s side during her last few months and the Hospice personnel recognized that she was essential to bringing some comfort to her ownerâ€™s life at the end. The family had been concentrating on giving my friend everything she needed and Angel had taken a little of a backseat. How wonderful that Hospice, through their Pets Peace of Mind Program, can offer help to the four-legged family members when the sick family member has so many needs to cater to.
