Caring for a poorly dog Print E-mail
Tuesday, 26 September 2017 10:21
As loving owners we would all like our dogs just to slip away in their sleep when the time comes. Sadly that happens all too rarely leaving most owners having to make the very difficult decision of when to let go. Dogs are part of our family and so it's not surprising that American researchers have found when the dog is unwell it can have a massive psychological impact on the owner, in terms of stress, anxiety and depression. And when the dog suffers with chronic or terminal disease, suffering in the owner is exacerbated. There is little in the research findings that can help the owner to cope with the problems but it is hoped that it will help vets to better understand client distress and the challenges involved in caring for a sick canine member of the family.
