In-Home End of Life Care – Celebrating Pets’ Lives with Dr. Dawnetta Woodruff



A few months ago, I had to say goodbye to my 12 year old Golden Retriever, Chip. It was extremely difficult as it has been with all of the pets I’ve lost over the years. Several years ago I met Dr. Dawnetta Woodruff at a fundraiser to help a local animal shelter. Since that time, I’ve gotten to know Dr. Woodruff and the specialized services she provides to animals and their owners and want to share this knowledge with you. After graduating from the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, she worked as a Mixed Animal Veterinarian. She also has experience as an emergency room Veterinarian and as a general small animal practitioner. The human animal bond has always been her focus and in 2012 she founded the St. Louis area branch of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice and In-Home Euthanasia.
