    How Do You Deal ?

    I am starting my classes this July, but I am bombarded with everyone reminding me of the sad part of the job: putting a pet to sleep. How do you deal with it? What do you do when you feel like crying alongside the owner?

    I used to get so emotional

    when it came to euthanasia. Now I've learned how to set my feelings aside and accept that in most cases it is needed. It's still hard but it does get easier. Still hard to see a grown man cry over is loyal companion.
