Learning outcome

The experience of end of life of a pet can be a profound experience.

The way a veterinary team handles this experience can change the experience for all involved.

It is possible to increase skills in this area and this has proven to be a strong buffer to compassion fatigue and reduce the impact of grief on the client.

This presentation will look at practical ways to improve outcomes in end of life experience in several different areas, End of life decisions, Euthanasia procedures, After Care, Pet loss and Grief.

Dr Michael O'Donoghue
Michael graduated from the University of Queensland in 1992, after graduation Michael worked mostly in small animal practice and also spent 2 years working in the UK. From the year 2000- 2005 Michael worked for the Iams company which became Proctor and Gamble pet care. In 2006 Dr Michael O'Donoghue met Penny Carroll and formed a pet loss support group called Pets and People. This was the culmination of a long held desire to help people who are struggling to cope with losing their much-loved animal companions. As an experienced veterinarian specialising in small animals, it was a natural choice for Michael to establish a support network to provide opportunities for grieving pet owners to find and reach qualified pet loss counsellors. Since its inception, Penny and Michael have running pet loss seminars, a pet loss website, pet loss sympathy cards and pet loss counselling though Pets and People. Dr Michael O'Donoghue now works as a locum vet at different practices around Brisbane and South East Queensland. He has been a president of the Queensland committee of the Australian Veterinary Association (AVA) and the northern representative and honorary treasurer of the ASAV a committee for veterinarians with a focus on small animals.
