Hay momentos tristes en la vida y perder a una mascota es uno de los dolores más desgarradores que una familia que ama a los animales puede experimentar.

Así que en esta galería encontrarás un grupo de imágenes que demuestran sufrimiento por las pérdidas de sus perritos.

Es una demostración de la intimidad del vínculo humano-animal, específicamente al final de la vida de una mascota, antes y después del fallecimiento en casa con su dueño.

This is a long post, so bear with me, but I want the pending images to have proper context. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been working on a photographic project and feature-length film that explores the last moments people share with their pets before and after an at-home pet euthanasia. · I recognize this topic carries a lot of emotional weight. I have an immense amount of respect for those who are going through this. It’s one of the most intense moments I’ve ever witnessed. The human animal-bond is one that shouldn’t be overlooked – when someone says they’re going through the loss of a pet, I now more fervently understand just how devastating that can be. Those who are going through this, I can attest that at-home pet euthanasia can be a much more peaceful passing. If you’re going through this now, feel free to reach out for support. · I reached out to a number of organizations while exploring this topic and one - Lap of Love, responded immediately. I can’t thank Paula Ford enough for responding to that email. Her kindness opened the connection with the founder, Dr.Dani McVety. I’m also profoundly thankful to Dani for her trust while documenting these sacred spaces. She is one of the most impressive people I have ever met. · I also want to thank all the veterinarians, and the rest of the staff at Lap of Love. This thanks also includes the folks at Caring Pathways in Denver. All of them are amazing people, and have my deep respect. · I appreciate Thomas Simonetti and the folks over at Washington Post Visuals for taking the care and time to publish the images as well. Thomas, thank you so much. Thank you once again to the Washington Post for publishing this. I'm exceedingly grateful: https://wapo.st/2F4xfiu Over the next week or so I’ll be posting images from the project.

Moments before, she looked at Dr. Dani McVety, at right and asked, “Is he gone?” Dani nodded and said, “He has his wings now.” #love #pets #lastmoments

Fueron tomadas en el transcurso de un año en 2017 a 2018. Las fotografías se realizaron con la cooperación de los dueños de perros en el área de Tampa Bay de Florida y las mascotas recibieron una eutanasia doméstica, un servicio que permite un final tranquilo en casa.

La inspiración del fotógrafo Ross Taylor surgió tras sentirse "profundamente conmovida" al ver a un amigo luchar con el deterioro de la salud de su propia mascota y su decisión de usar la eutanasia.

Olesya Lykovi gritó de angustia con la muerte de su perro, Sam. Momentos antes, miró a la Dra. Dani McVety y le preguntó: "¿Se ha ido?", Dani asintió y dijo: "Ahora tiene sus alas".

'Traté de hacer de hacer todo lo que pude. Pero dijeron que no hay nada más que pudiera hacer", dijo Kiara Manrique, mientras que lloraba. Su hermana, Kimberly (izquierda), y el veterinario Nil Wilkins (fuera de la foto) la consolaron mientras sus otros dos perros observan.

Marquita Leibe caminaba de un lado a otro poco antes de inclinarse para estar cerca de su perro, Daisy, minutos antes de que lo durmieran. Poco después, su esposo Donald salió para reponerse, abrumado por el dolor.

Al atardecer de un día de verano, Kai, siente que algo anda mal con su perro, Asia. Él obedientemente sigue detrás de Rob Peterson y el Dr. Dani McVety. Con la ayuda de Carrie, la hermana de Rob, Asia será enterrada en la granja.

“What am I going to do? What am I going to do?” David Thompson cries over and over shortly before his dog, Spartan, was later euthanized on their house boat located in Port Hudson, Florida. "You’re the best friend I could ever have, you’re my first mate" he said. At right is his wife, Marie.. • “Last Moments,” is a photo essay that explores the intimacy of the human-animal bond - specifically, the last moments before, and after, the passing of a pet at home with their owner. It is a somber, and intense, testimony to the bond and the pain that comes when it is broken. • This series looks at the intense connection shared between people and their pets. The decision to have at-home pet euthanasia is part of an emerging trend (to have end of life care in the home, instead of in a clinic). Nationally, scores of pet owners go through this painful experience each year. It’s important to note the immense care and compassion that the veterinarian community demonstrates towards the families going through this. • It's also important for people going through this to know they're not alone in their grief, and importantly, that their grief is not to be taken lightly. #love #pets #lastmoments •

"Coco estaba allí para mí", dijo Rebecca Cassity, mientras ella combate las lágrimas. Su esposo, Drew, estaba en el ejército. La Dra. McVety la tranquiliza con un abrazo y palabras de consuelo: "Este es un mejor tratamiento del que cualquiera de nosotros obtendría".

Darcy Jones habla con la Dra. Loren Gassler sobre su perro, Alli, de 15 años, quien tuvo algunos problemas de equilibrio y tuvo problemas con un diagnóstico de cáncer.

Gassler estaba realizando una visita de hospicio para Jones, para ofrecer algunas sugerencias sobre cómo manejar mejor el tiempo restante que tendrían juntos.

“El Dr. Gassler, y muchos otros como ella, son increíbles en lo que hacen y ayudan a la dolorosa transición diaria, sin llamar la atención. Tienen mi respeto", dijo el fotógrafo Ross Taylor.

Wendy Lehr met Dr. Erica Unz with tears in her eyes. As they settled into the living room, thunder boomed outside. A heavy rain pattered against the roof. Mimosa, center, didn’t move and Wendy Lehr notices it. “She’s normally scared of it.” After awhile, Erica Unz asked if they’re ready. “I don’t know if we’ll ever be ready, but I guess it’s time," she said before starting to openly sob. It was one of the hardest cases I've witnessed and brought me to tears immediately. I felt so sad for them. • Today will be my last day posting on the project, "Last Moments".
