Pet Hospice

The passing of a political hero, growing crops on the moon and the color of 2014 in this week's look at the web

As the lives of our pets become increasingly more human—with pet-specific spas, cupcakes and ice cream—so does a pet’s passing, thanks to the growing pet hospice industry. Much like humans, pets are taken off the heavy meds and transitioned to pain killers and anti-anxiety treatments to ease their final days. The one point of difference is the option of euthanasia; when a vet comes to you and eases the passing of your pet in the comfort of your home.
