Until recently, pets were not allowed in hospice centers for humans. Even those pets and people who had been together for years. The difficulties of the hospice situation were only compounded by the sadness and confusion faced by the patient and family. Now, thanks to veterinarian and chaplain Delana Taylor McNac D.V.M., D.Min and hospices everywhere, the importance and necessity of pets - especially in the hospice situation, is being recognized.
Dr. Taylor McNac also believes that senior dogs need a special place of care and social interaction, and in December of 2012 she founded Dogville, a day care and boarding facility for senior and special needs dogs.
In this interview, meet Dr. Taylor McNac and learn about her work with hospice care and senior dogs.
