Hospice and Palliative Care for Companion Animals: Principles and Practice

Hospice and Palliative Care

Hospice and Palliative Care for Companion Animals: Principles and Practice offers the first comprehensive reference to veterinary hospice and palliative care. This is a complete guide to comfort care for seriously ill and dying animals and for their owners/caregivers.

One half of the book offers specific “how-to” information for veterinarians practicing end of life care. The other half offers a thorough understanding of the core concepts and examines animal end-of-life care from many angles, including the role of veterinary nursing, ethical aspects of end of life decision-making, and the emotional context of care-giving.

The book presents ideas that should be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of human-animal interaction, animal welfare, human mental health, thanatology and human hospice care.


The book’s editors are:

Amir Shanan, DVM, CHPV (Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Veterinarian)

Jessica Pierce, M.Div., PhD, and Tamara Shearer, DVM, CHPV, CCRT, CVPM, CVA
