Canine Palliative and Hospice Care - Virginia, March 2019

  • Wholistic Paws Veterinary Services 20600 Gordon Park Square, #170 Ashburn, VA 20147 USA (map)

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

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.
