  Description of Seminar/Conference

The first of the two sessions on this topic is now available. This two hour webinar covers 5 of 10 foundational principles that will be explored in total. Dr. Ella Bittel, internationally recognized by her peers as a leader in animal hospice, found that if any one of these principles is not observed, euthanasia is the inevitable outcome. Yet these pillars of hospice are widely unknown amongst animal care providers.

Illuminating the real-life application of these principles in animal patients, Ella shares in this session also about her and her husband’s hospice journey with their Golden Retriever “Samson.”

These foundational principles mark what hospice care truly is, but also offer invaluable guidance to those choosing other types of end-of-life care for their beloved animal, including those when euthanasia is the expected outcome.

This SPIRITS in Transition™ online session series is designed to give tools to those who are interested in learning how it is possible to care for an animal family member so it can live out it’s life fully. It specifically demonstrates how hospice care can be provided at a level similar to what is available for our human loved ones. The precious knowledge imparted in these sessions can prove to be just as crucial also for those aiming to provide comfort care preceding planned euthanasia, another type of end-of-life care.
