|Animal Hospice Provides a Painless & Dignified End for Your Pet|
What is Pet Hospice?
Animal hospice care focuses on bringing comfort and tranquility to your pet in the final period of their life. It is chosen when a family decides that painful therapies would no longer be in the best interests of their pet.
Is hospice care right for my pet and my family?
Once a terminal illness has been diagnosed, it is time to discuss how everyone will want to proceed with care. You should learn who wants to help, who can dedicate time to the pet’s care, and what financial resources are available. It is also important to decide early on whether you will assist in the natural dying process or choose euthanasia when the time is right.
Assisting a Natural Death
If you will wait for a natural death, hospice care is critical to prevent suffering by managing the pain and to meet the pet’s needs right up to the end. This level of hospice care is very involved and will take great dedication from everyone in the home.
If you choose euthanasia, your family we will help you know the signs that will indicate the time has come. The hospice care time will be reduced, but the level of care will remain high. Euthanasia can be chosen at any time you believe your pet is no longer responding to their medications and treatments.
