Canine Palliative and Hospice Care - Chicago, May 2018

  • Canis Bodyworks at Anti-Cruelty Society 510 North LaSalle Drive Chicago, IL 60654 USA (map)

How can we best support our canine companions when they are at their most vulnerable: during and after chronic illness or injury and at the end of life?  

In this workshop, participants learn approaches to palliative and hospice care that complement the care provided by a veterinarian. Special emphasis will be placed on learning safe and effective bodywork techniques that can be used by pet professionals and pet parents alike.  Topics include understanding the unique needs of the palliative and hospice client, working with other caregivers, and pet parent education and support.

We recommend that you consider taking the Oncology Massage for Dogs workshop in addition to this one as they complement each other beautifully.

*Trust and Relationship-Building is recommended, but not required.
