To my friends at Sandwich Vet: I am so glad you are here! You have given me the privilege and joy of being your veterinarian over the past 7 years and I wanted to tell you first what I have been working on and why.
Max was one of my first home euthanasias 7 years ago that I will never forget. He was laying down in his favorite spot on the farm, surrounded by all his family petting him and telling him that he was such a good boy. Even before I gave him any medication, I could tell he was very much relaxed and at peace.
He passed gracefully and his family was so relieved that he went with dignity and love.
Losing a pet is excruciatingly hard and is always filled with sorrow.
However, on that day, I saw euthanasia in a different light: it could be both sad yet beautiful. The tears of his family represented the years of stories and memories Max gave them.
His final resting placerepresented his ultimate comfort zone, where he was most himself.
His graceful passing represented the honor and respect he deserved as a beloved companion.
I didn't know it then, but I now realize that I discovered a personal calling: every pet deserves the most comfortable, loving, and graceful finale to the wonderful life they have shared with their families.
That's why I had to find a way to see more older pets and Unleashed with Grace: Animal Home Hospice and Euthanasia was born. I became certified in Animal Hospice and Palliative Care and will be opening my own business on November 6, 2018.
You and your pets have been a blessing to me and I cherish you! In 2019, I will still be part time at the clinic, but I do not want this to be a goodbye, I am still here for you!
I believe pet owners need more help with tips, tools, and education on how to take care of their senior pets and you can help too! Enter your information below to receive helpful insight on pet care yourself, then pass it along to someone you know! Together, we can make sure every pet finishes their journey with grace and love.
Sincerely, Dr. Heidi Pulito
