The euthanasia appointment is unparalleled in emotion and sentiment. There are a few things in veterinary medicine, or life moreover, that require as many outward displays of empathy, compassion, and commiseration from a doctor. The tone of voice, delivery of words, bedside manner with both patient and client, and the medical procedure itself become a delicate dance around death that doctor and staff should carefully choreograph and continually improve. It is only through this shared solace that the family will feel lovingly connected with your clinic, ensuring an unsurpassed level of client service.
