Smiths Station, Alabama (WRBL) – The love of a good dog, cat, or other furry family is one of the greatest blessings of life. This feeling is a valuable fact at Smith Station Veterinary Hospital. As the end of life approaches, staff at the Veterinary Clinic in Lee County, Alabama understand that the sudden loss of unconditional love for pets can be devastating and difficult to manage.
Veterinary hospital last week I posted a photo of the bottle of Hersey’s Kisses Called “Goodbye Kiss” -the photo contains this message from Dr. Nicole Namie. “This jar is reserved for euthanasia … because no dog goes to heaven without tasting chocolate.”
Clinic posts and kindness to families and their pets associated with animal lovers around the world who know that chocolate isn’t good for dogs, but is a bittersweet final treat at the end of life. Posts have been shared nearly 100,000 times and are becoming more affectionate.
Dr. Namie said the habit of offering treats and treats to euthanasia patients was something they had done forever.
“We strive to provide as much comfort as possible during very difficult and emotional times. My staff always offer specially small snacks and candy bars for those promises. I’ve kept it a secret. Usually these are treats I don’t recommend giving to patients, but in their last moments, I think it’s important to offer them something special. It’s not a service that clients expect or expect, but it seems they’re really grateful. They seem relieved to know that their pets are full and lovingly going to heaven, “said Dr. Namie.
If the weather is nice, Dr. Namie says the clinic will help the family set up an outdoor picnic to spend the last moment with the family.
“Our clients and patients are like families, so when we lose a patient, we keep it in mind as if we lost our patient. They become part of the family. We recognize that we are saying “goodbye”. In some cases, some families have been around for more than a decade. It’s a pet that their children grew up in, and they made 10 years of memories. Choosing to euthanize your pet is an incredibly vulnerable time. In many cases, it’s the first time children have had to say goodbye to their loved ones, “said Dr. Namie.
In the field of veterinary medicine, Dr. Namie believes that compassionate fatigue is prevalent. Smith’s Station Animal Hospital says it doesn’t take long to make the last moments of the family memorable with your pet, and it helps a lot. The clinic wants more veterinary offices to start “goodbye kisses” and renew their sense of compassion and community.
