Your End of Life Plan for Your Dog is necessary. Yet are you feeling a little helpless about not knowing what is the best thing to do for your dog right now? Is the chaos of the news hard for you to have positive thoughts?
When you receive the devastating news your dog has reached the end of their life your emotions are up and down. There are so many things that need to be taken care of, and you don’t know where to begin.
It’s easy to forget things, be disorganized, and not be prepared.
Organization will help
One of the biggest concerns that my clients tell me is that they want to be sure they stay focused on their dog’s needs. Yet they are experiencing so many emotions they don’t know where to begin.
It’s important to be organized as you will be able to move through your day with your dog with a whole lot more love and less chaos.
A Checklist for Your End of Life Plan for Your Dog
With a checklist that lists your goals and the personality of your dog in mind, you will actually stay more focused on your and your dog’s needs.
A checklist will guide you through your grief to help you stay dedicated to the task at hand. Your grief won’t go away but it will help you manage your grief so that you can be present for your dog during this special time.
Keep in mind your list will probably have many more tasks listed than the five I share here. I do offer you a larger list in my book My Dog Is Dying: What Do I Do? Emotions, Decisions, and Options for Healing.
