Is your dog Fido treated more like a family member than a pet? You are probably not alone. Pets are far more than just companion animals-they help improve family life, can help strengthen family bonds, and teach responsibility to children. In a workshop offered by Columbia Veterinarian Dr. Beth Luebbering at the MCC Annual Assembly on Saturday, October 4, we will explore the various roles of pets and their value in our family life. Special emphasis will be given on how to cope with the loss of a pet and how this event can impact family life. This workshop is a must for all pet-lovers!!
