Hospice Care & End of Life

Your best friend is our

greatest concern.

There are few things in life more painful than needing to determine the end-of-life needs of our very best friends. There can be so many conflicting emotions.

Let Dr. Pam support you through this end of a chapter so that you can care for and honor your friends' needs.

Deciding when your pet may need hospice care or euthanasia is a very personal decision, but that doesn’t mean you have to make this difficult choice on your own.

 

We will discuss with gentle compassion your concerns and options for hospice care or humane euthanasia. Before you and your companion struggle through another day, we can help assess the discomfort your pet now experiences and discuss the options to alleviate their pain and disability.

Caring for a terminally ill pet at home can be a roller coaster. We can help anticipate your pet's needs and discuss the relationship you share with your companion.   There are often many options to avoid or diminish pain and suffering and maintain a comfortable lifestyle for a geriatric or terminally ill pet.

Please let us know if you have special concerns, requests, or questions.​

These may include medications for pain, laser therapy, food supplements for mobility, environmental adjustments, interactions with other pets at home, and care of remains.
