SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Making end-of-life decisions for your pet – a difficult decision for many pet guardians these days.
Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, Co-President of the San Francisco SPCA, said the cost of end-of- life care can play a major role in decisions being made.
“There’s been so many great advances in veterinary medicine that has allowed us to treat and extend the life of pets. Unfortunately, many of these treatments come at a cost, both financially and stress on the animal,” Scarlett said. “So it’s caused guardians to have to make very complicated decisions about their pets.”
