For many people, the most difficult part of pet ownership is knowing that at some point they’re going to have to say goodbye to their beloved friend. While death is a natural part of life, that doesn’t make it any easier when you are in the midst of your pet’s last chapter.

Help for Grieving the Loss of a Pet

Below, you can watch Dr. Karen Becker’s two-part webinar on aging and dying pets, and how to best care for them. Most people would rather not think about the topic of their pet’s dying, but the purpose of Dr. Becker’s webinar is to help you approach this time of your pet’s life, when it does come, with a spirit of peace and thankfulness instead of fear.

If you’ve visited my pets website,, you’re already familiar with Dr. Becker — and the intense passion she has for animal care. If not, you’ll quickly understand why Dr. Becker has become well known in the Chicago area for people looking for help and guidance at the end of their pet’s life. Many veterinarians actually refer their euthanasia patients to Dr. Becker, because she believes helping animals to die well — when they are ready and the time is right — is the last gift she can give.
