Support for those with aging, ill pets

At-Home Vet hosts twice-monthly support groups for Portland metro area residents who are facing the challenges associated with caring for an older pet or a pet dealing with a chronic or terminal disease.

Facilitated by Heather Dillon, DVM and special guests, the group is called “Halo: Pet Parents Helping Each Other,” and provides access to others navigating a common experience. Together the groups share and learn how to live with the demands of daily care of and decision-making for pets experiencing challenges related to age or disease. Upcoming meetings — which are free to attend but first come, first served —  will be held Apr 4 and Apr 18, 7-8pm, at Multnomah Arts Center on Capital Hwy in Portland.  Learn more at
