This week on Here After with Megan Devine:
Pet Loss and Veterinarians Who Cry: With Veterinary Oncologist and Author Dr. Renee Alsarraf
We’re on break, creating all new episodes for season 3. In the meantime, here’s one of our favorite episodes from the past year. See you soon.
Nobody likes to talk about pet loss… but everybody wants to talk about pet loss. What a difficult scenario that is! Veterinary oncologist Dr. Renee Alsarraf joins us to talk about grief, professionalism, and the importance of being human – on the job and off.
