Honoring Transition Kit– End-of-life time is difficult and often we are at a loss of how to help our loved one during this time. This kit is comprised of items to assist with the emotional and spiritual aspects of end of life transitions. The goal is to provide comfort, ease of transition and assist the beloved in feeling loved and cared for. It comes with an Honoring Wrap, Loving transition energy spray and Lightbody CD. We can help make the area, energy and beloved comfortable on their journey back home. It is way to bring in the sacred, honor them and show great love.
Honor Your Pet CD
(guided pet honoring memorial ceremony) – This is a guided Pet Honoring Memorial ceremony which you can play in your own time and space. The CD has an overview of what to expect and how to prepare. And when you’re ready you can play the guided memorial to have your own meaningful way to give thanks and honor your beloved pet. This can be done in the privacy of your own home for you. It is also a great thing to do as a family. It helps us transition through grief and helps with closure. There is not a lot out there to help us when we lose a beloved animal companion and family member. Something as simple as a dedicated time to say thanks and honor the love and gifts your beloved pet gave can have tremendous effects on healing our heart.

Speaking for Spot Book – by author and veterinarian Nancy Kay, DVM
Learn how to become a savvy medical advocate for your dog. With a sense of humor and explanations that are easy to understand, Dr. Nancy Kay provides a wealth of dog health care tips and teaches you how to navigate the expensive, complex, and often overwhelming world of veterinary medicine. Visits to your vet will never be the same!
With Speaking for Spot my goal was to teach you why we need to be medical advocates for our pets and how to fulfill this important role. Now, with Your Dog’s Best Health my intent is to take you to the next level by spelling out what is reasonable to expect from your vet. Included are some expectations that may just surprise you. For example, did you know that it’s reasonable to expect email communication with your vet, discussion about your Internet research, and explanations of all options for your pet, regardless of cost? In the spirit of saving the best for last, I reserved the final chapter of Your Dog’s Best Health for clarifying what is reasonable for your veterinarian to expect from you! Needless to say, visits to the vet will never be the same!
4 Paws Farewell was established to enable pets to pass peacefully in the comfort of their own homes. By using compassionate care through pet hospice and home euthanasia, your pet can be put to sleep in the comfort of your own home. Our vision is to allow this to be a readily available option to help reduce pet’s anxiety and increase their comfort during this transition. Our goal is to provide your pet with a compassionate and dignified passing in the comfort of familiar surrounds and loved ones. We are also dedicated to providing pet hospice to those pets that need assistance with end of life issues that may require medical attention and guidance.

A Peaceful Path Pet Loss
A Peaceful Path Pet Loss – Experiencing the death of a loved one is commonly accepted as a valid reason for grief. What may surprise you is how you or other people may respond when that loved one is a companion pet. This is a loss you will feel daily, but sometimes struggle with how to process it. This workbook will allow you to validate your pain, explore why you feel this loss and help you navigate through the grief in a healthy direction. It is designed to be a seven week study, but can be taken at your own pace. You may find yourself laughing at memories of your first days together, or working through those “what-if’s” of those last few days. All of these are necessary parts of the healing process and we hope you find comfort as you spend these days loving your companion, as well as yourself..

When Your Dog Has Cancer
“This well organized compassionate book is one that all dog owners should read even if their dog hasn’t been diagnosed with cancer. The first chapters of Lola’s book include diagnosis and testing, types of cancer and treatment plans. Then, the real treasure of the book begins with what I consider the “nursing” parts of the book, hands on things an owner can do to care for their dog as they fight cancer. (*Book will be represented, author will not be on site)
