Not long ago, I received a diagnosis that my beloved Sweet Sue had bone cancer. It was in her spine. It was inoperable. It was difficult news, and a difficult situation.
Her mobility had been limited for a couple of weeks, but had been attributed to a soft tissue injury. Although I knew in my mind, and in my heart, what the only course of action was, it did not make the decision any easier.
Sweet Sue was a rescued greyhound, aged 6 ½. After speaking with several other greyhound owners about her condition, one of them recommended Dr. Forslund to me. I spoke with her briefly, and later went to her website to consider the details in my own time.
I phoned her the next day to make the arrangements. Dr. Forslund arrived on time, and well prepared. Her professional manner is calm, yet assured. Her personal nature is sensitive and empathetic. She was the absolute right person, at the exactly correct time, to help me set Sue free.
Sue died, at ease, in her own house, in her own bed, with her head in the hands of someone who loved her very, very much (we should all be so fortunate). There was no anxiety, no fear, no cold stainless steel. For this, I cannot thank Dr. Forslund enough.
When I am confronted with a similar circumstance in the future, I will call Dr. Forslund again.
