Hospice Care

 

There comes a time in a pet's life when they need a lot of maintenance to keep them comfortable.  Elderly pets may spend a lot of time sleeping and they do need to move to prevent pressure sores.  They may need some subcutaneous fluids to keep them hydrated, or they may need medications on a particular schedule.  This is difficult to do if you are working all day.  I can help by doing some of these chores.  Providing hospice care until such time as death comes naturally, or you seek to painlessly end your pet's suffering.  I can provide counseling on when it is time; unfortunately, I cannot euthanize pets in your home.  I can put you in touch with local veterinarians who can.  As the needs of a patient  vary widely, a consult is necessary to discover what is the best level of care for your pet.
