My name is Susan and I had a 14 1/2-year-old lab mix named Chase. This is the fourth dog for me to help over the Rainbow Bridge and it doesn’t get any easier. He had arthritis for some time now and we had a bad night. I had always thought I would know when it was time and it was today.

I started to look on-line and found Pet Loss at Home. It helped me a lot to make the decision. I thought if he was eating, he was okay. But the information about older dogs with arthritis helped me see what I needed to see.

It was Sunday morning and I called the phone number. A recording asked if I wanted to leave a message or talk to someone. Dr. Joe Rosenberg answered the phone. We talked for a few minutes and I asked if he could come today and he said yes. He was at my home in a little more than an hour. He was kind, gentle, and caring. This is the first time I was able to do this at home and, with Dr. Joe’s help, it made an awful thing a little less awful.

Thank you, Dr. Joe, for coming today and for your help. Chase is now running free and lifting his leg high on those bushes.
