Sometimes, the best path for you and your pet isn’t pursuing aggressive treatment in search for a cure, but gentle, comforting care to make the best of your time together. Palliative care seeks to provide support for you and your pet, ensuring the best quality of life possible while helping to ease the transition from life to death. By shifting the focus from a cure to comfort and care, your relationship with and love for your pet is supported throughout the course of life-limiting illness.

Palliative care can include:

  • Pain assessment and management
  • Appetite stimulation and support
  • Hydration support
  • Anxiety reduction
  • Supportive supplements and herbs
  • Minimizing and eliminating lab work, testing, and invasive procedures
  • In-home euthanasia, transitioning to end-of-life in a comforting, familiar, and loving environment

Contact us to discuss what palliative care could mean for you and your pet.
