For more than twenty years Rita Reynolds has worked with sick
and dying animals to ease their pain and fear, and comfort them
in the final stages of life. Just as Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
pioneered a deeper understanding of death and dying for humans,
Reynolds does similarly for dying animals, both domesticated and
wild. This book goes beyond the advice of most pet loss books.
Reynolds shares touching and inspiring stories of animals who
have graced her life, and the lessons they have offered for living
and dying. Reynolds' compassionate approach allows for a more
expansive understanding of our connection to animals and how to
be with them in the moment, even when they are sick and dying.
