)-- The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association (www.ncvma.org) has announced the release of a podcast discussing pet euthanasia, and the procedures and options for the end of a pet’s life. Dr. Brenda Stevens, clinical assistant professor at the NC State School of Veterinary Medicine, explains that euthanasia is sometimes a necessary decision for pet owners. She discusses when euthanasia is the appropriate choice, and the decision-making processes that veterinarians and pet owners use, along with options for pet owners dealing with grief and pet owners who may need to explain the loss of a pet to a child. The podcast is available for download at: http://bit.ly/QBMGwT.
“Euthanasia is a very difficult question and should be taken seriously by pet owners and their families,” said Dr. Stevens. “If a pet’s quality of life is suffering, then these are the types of decisions and realities that pet owners must face. Veterinarians are there to assist with making the right choice for owners as well as for the pet.”
