Dr. Nelson Quoted In Ladies’ Home Journal

Losing a pet is never easy.  That’s why I commend Ladies’ Home Journal and their sponsors for tackling this difficult, but important subject.  Below are some images from the magazine followed by a few more comments.     

Several months ago, Jenna McCarthy interviewed me for this article.  She asked great questions designed to help people with five specific topics :  when is it appropriate to consider euthanasia, unexpected deaths, dealing with death as a family, why it’s good to grieve and the importance of celebrating your pet’s life.  The result is a wonderfully written article that will help you cope and say good-bye to your pet.  I am honored to be quoted on these vital issues.
