Stephen J. Withrow, DVM, Flint Animal Cancer Center, Stuart Chair in Oncology, Colorado State University says...
“My team has made paw prints for my clients for over 20 years and feel that the kits are a simple and convenient way to provide a lasting memento for a pet owner upon the loss of their animal. Many owners have commented that receiving a paw print added a personal touch to the sometimes impersonal process of their pet’s death. It’s one more way we, as veterinarians, can express empathy at a difficult time."
