We are eternally grateful to Dr. Elizabeth Benson for her loving care and compassion. She made it possible for us to lay our precious dog, Ziggy, to rest in the comfort and familiar surroundings of his home with us at his side. She introduced herself gracefully and gently to Ziggy, who quickly included her in his circle of friends. Putting him and us at some ease under difficult circumstances, she readily gave him something to completely kill the pain. He immediately, fully relaxed. Momentarily, she then gave him a sleeping agent that provided him greater rest and sleep. Finally, with a last dosage, she remained with us as we blessed him and his spirit, free of age and a hurting body, took flight, unfettered. She graciously sent her personal condolences to us in a card soon afterward.
