My little Sheltie, Sarah, was nigh 15 and her health suddenly deteriorated, as can happen to all life, to the point where the Necessary was the only prudent option. Dr. Given performed the Deed in a most compassionate manner, touching and talking to Sarah through the entire process, with staff assistance as needed. She died on my lap, by my choice. I do not doubt that Sarah would have received the same caring attention had I not been present. A few days later I received a sympathy card from the staff. That was a first, after many veterinary visits the past 38 years. Me being near 65, Sarah was my last pet. No one knows tomorrow, so I can only highly recommend the Galveston Veterinary Clinic, today.
