Compassionate Veterinary Hospice's Caring Staff

Compassionate Veterinary Hospice-Staff-Liat Liat Shanan, Pet Life Celebrant and Certified Pet Loss Companion

Since early in life, my passions have been creative art and offering my compassion to those in need. I have been fortunate to experience life in different countries, and I appreciate and enjoy diverse cultures, traditions and beliefs.

I have had the privilege to follow and support Dr. Shanan’s dedication to the needs of animals at the end of life and their loving human families from the beginning. As Compassionate Veterinary Care’s Pet Life Celebrant and Certified Pet Loss Companion, I see proof every day that our patients are nothing less than family members, and to some of our clients, they are their furry children.

Formerly an active artist in the visual arts, cultural educator, community builder and event planner, I joined Compassionate Veterinary Care in 2009. I’m excited to help Dr Shanan develop his life mission creating a veterinary hospice program. I look forward to contributing my skills and experience to supporting pet parents as they prepare for loss, during their grief journey, and as they search for a meaningful way to celebrate and memorialize their beloved pets.

Compassionate Veterinary Hospice-Staff-Jodi Jodi Wagner - Practice Manager, Director of Nursing Services

I started working with Dr. Shanan and Compassionate Veterinary Hospice in August of 2017, and quickly discovered that veterinary hospice care is a special niche that fits very well with my values and philosophy of veterinary medicine. Throughout my life, I have been passionate about exploring the meaningful connections we share with each other and with our pets, how we form those connections, and how they enrich our lives. With this, I have developed a dedication in my veterinary career to providing pet owners with that level of meaningful connection to their veterinary team, to help pet owners be the best advocates for their pets, and to establish myself as a caring and trusted part of their support system. Throughout my career, I have always been dedicated to providing pets and pet owners with very high standards in medicine, communication, and caring support. Working with pets during their end of life journey, and providing pet owners with the support they need during that difficult time, is a rewarding new path for me.

I have a B.A. from Knox College in Philosophy, with concentrations in Psychology and Sociology. I join Dr. Shanan’s team after working for over 10 years as a veterinary technician here in Chicago, and 5 years as a veterinary manager. Before joining Compassionate Veterinary Hospice, I was the Clinic Manager and Lead Technician for Tree House Humane Society’s Spay/Neuter and Wellness Clinic. Being a part of Tree House Humane Society’s mission was a very meaningful part of my career, and sparked my passion for rescue volunteer work.

I enjoy spending time with my wife of 10 years, our 2-year-old son, and our four cats. In our spare time, we love to garden, turning our small Chicago yard into an organic urban vegetable garden. We love to cook, camp, travel, and learn new things together.
