If you have transitioned from finding a cure for your pet’s illness to focusing on comfort in the final days, pet hospice may be the right choice. Pet hospice focuses on providing comfort and dignity to your pet in the days and weeks leading up to the end of life. It also focuses on you, the pet parents, as the primary caregivers and supporting you in the difficult decisions that come with advanced illness. The goal of pet hospice is to provide pain management, nutritional support, and mobility options until natural death occurs or the decision is made for humane euthanasia. A hospice assessment provided with each initial visit to allow us to establish goals for pain management, nutritional and hydration support, and to plan for ongoing care. It will also help us to establish end of life wishes tailored to your pet and your family. The evaluation will be forwarded to your regular veterinarian within 24 hours of our consultation to maintain your pet’s care and support your relationship with your regular veterinarian.
