- Quality of Life Consultation
It is oftentimes helpful to speak with a hospice veterinarian when it comes to discussing quality of life concerns for your beloved pet. We will explain and help you evaluate all of the options available with today’s advances in veterinary medicine, while respecting your personal philosophy.
- Pet Hospice Services
Hospice services are offered for pets that are terminally ill, ensuring a comfortable and respectful end-of-life plan. Hospice can give you more time to say goodbye, help you come to a place of acceptance or provide you with an option besides euthanasia.
Upon entering hospice with Four Paws, an in-home hospice plan is created, including care instructions, spiritual requests, quality of life guidance and more. Our hospice services include in-home exams, pain control, medical treatments, and most importantly, we will teach you how to care for your pet while we are not there. Also, we are always an accessible resource if you have questions.
Although it is never an easy decision to make, please know that we offer in-home euthanasia service. We will help you with this decision by focusing on what is best for your beloved pet and what is most fitting to alleviate any suffering or pain.
Euthanasia is a peaceful procedure that we perform with kindness, compassion and skill. In-home euthanasia helps make the process a little less stressful and much more dignified as you are both surrounded by the comforts of home and the people (and often other pets) who will love and support you. In addition, a house call may be especially helpful if you are unable to get about easily or have a pet that you are unable to transport.
