The UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine has a very active Human-Animal Bond Club. Each month, they bring in speakers to discuss various aspects of the HAB in practice. Talks for 2015 have included:
“Hospice Care and In-home Euthanasia: Supporting the Human-Animal Bond” by Dr. Lynn Hendrix of Beloved Pet Mobile
“Reserving Judgement in Challenging Cases: Honoring Different Presentations of the Human-Animal Bond” by Dr. Lynn Hendrix of Beloved Pet Mobile
“4Paws: Therapy Dogs and the Human-Animal Bond” by Dr. Joanne Yates and Chris Cohen.
Pictured above are the officers of the UC Davis HAB Club, from left to right: Savanna Vig, Josephine Noah, Genevieve Carreon, and Armeti Aghashani. Also pictured here is a very special guest from Dr. Yates’ discussion– therapy dog Jonny Justice, a former Michael Vick dog that has found a new and amazing and love-filled life!
