End-of-Life & Hospice Care
Honoring Their Life and Legacy
Dealing with the changes in quality of life that our pets experience due to advanced age or an incurable disease can be an extremely difficult journey for a family. Few things in life are as painful as the decline or loss of a loved one. We will be there to help you on this journey.
Hospice care is often misunderstood. It does not indicate that you have stopped trying to care for your pet. It simply means that their medical condition or disease has progressed to a point where we can no longer reasonably expect to achieve a cure. It is then time to transition our focus to trying to make their remaining time as comfortable as possible. Your family will be the primary caregivers during hospice care. We will support you by providing you with the information and tools that you need during this time. Caregiving can be physically, emotionally, and financially challenging. We will discuss your goals and resources and help you to determine a plan that fits your needs.
We can help you with decisions that will help to maintain their nutrition, hydration, and pain control to the greatest degree possible. We can suggest ways of altering their environment at home that helps them to maintain their independence for as long as possible. We will be there to discuss their changes and help you to prepare for what to expect. When the time comes, we will help you say goodbye in a kind and peaceful manner. Families are always welcome to be present during euthanasia.
