FAQ: what can I expect from a scheduled conference?
An open conference with the doctor that allows pet parents to ask the questions they have about how to be confident and in making a quality of life decision, how to evaluate you pets quality of life, how to know best when it is time, what to expect based on the pet parents goals and choices discussed, and a detail discussion about options of medications, delivery routes, sedation, anxiety and pain reduction , burial, cremation, and any other questions pet parents may have that would help them. The focus of the conference is to guide the pet parents to feeling knowledgeable, supported and at ease that they are able to find the right path for their companion in this difficult part of the journey.
Knowing when the time may be right for euthanasia is very personal. Your pet may go through slower age changes as they approach the natural end of their life or experience faster physical and mental changes. What’s important is to understand what is normal and abnormal for your pet. Determining the quality of life for your pet is very individual and best determined by you and your family. There are Quality of Life worksheets that your veterinarian may be able to provide you. However, no worksheet is completely accurate and perfectly suited to every pet. Dr. Kaiser can talk with you about the changes you see in your pet and help you determine if euthanasia is the best choice.
