What’s involved in veterinary hospice?
The voice cast stars Louis C. While Katie is at work during the day, Max hangs out with other pets in the building: tabby cat Chloe, pug Mel, dachshund Buddy, and budgerigar Sweet Pea. One day, Katie adopts Duke, a large Newfoundland mix from the pound, leaving Max jealous because of her divided focus on Duke. Enraged by Max's attitude towards him, Duke tries to abandon Max in an alley, but they are both attacked by cats led by Sphynx cat Ozone who steals both dogs' collars and leaves them to be caught by Animal Control. Duke fears that he will be killed if he goes back to the pound. When Gidget, a white Pomeranian who has a crush on Max, discovers that he is missing, she decides to find him. After the van crashes in an alleyway, Max and Duke are rescued by a white rabbit named Snowball, the leader of "The Flushed Pets"—a cult of feral sewer-dwelling animals who hate humans because their owners mistreated and abandoned them. After Max and Duke pretend to despise humans as much as they do by saying they killed their owners, the Flushed Pets invite them to join. Before they can prove their loyalty by allowing a one-fanged viper to bite them, the alley cats barge in and inform Snowball that Max and Duke are still pets.
Over the six months leading to his death, Ivan experienced a slow decline, but one in which Rhoads felt like she was in control. She was empowered to make decisions that would best serve her canine companion. Every time we bring an animal into our lives, we unwittingly also introduce a shadow: death. Death will trail in the footsteps of a beloved pet until, eventually, it catches up. Many of us try not to think about this. The thought of an elderly dog curling up peacefully next to the fire is a powerful one. It may be preceded by a sudden traumatic accident, or the rapid onset of a serious illness, or months of struggling with cancer or another terminal disease. Sitting down to think about the kind of death you want to have is important.
