Project Description

Saying goodbye to our furry and four-legged best friends is painful, and don’t let anyone tell you it is not.

Pet caregiving and coping when we lose those closest to us can be difficult.

Keeping It REAL Caregiving is honored to share with you our Sunday Coffee Chat & Support Session with our special guest, Dr. Don J. Harris. He is a nationally renowned veterinarian based in South Florida. Dr. Harris works with all kinds of animals, but specializes in exotics.

He is the mastermind behind Avian & Exotic Animal Medical Consulting.

In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Harris and several animal-loving guests who talk about the loss of pets and the grief which results.

  • Is it real? Yes.
  • Can losing our four-legged loved ones leave us in an emotional tailspin? Yes.
  • Should we ever believe the pain we feel should be dismissed because the loss is not a human companion, but rather a pet? Dr. Harris says – NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT!

We had a wonderful conversation on this topic and gained valuable insight from an established leader in the field of veterinary medicine.
