Palliative Care: Prioritizing Your Pet's Comfort

Palliative care is all about making your pet as comfortable as possible until it's time to say goodbye. This includes managing any pain or discomfort they might have and helping them feel loved and at ease as much as possible. Our team provides gentle, compassionate care tailored to your pet's needs, so they can enjoy their remaining time with you.

Understanding Quality of Life: Is It Time?

Deciding when it's “time” can be one of the hardest decisions you'll face as a pet owner. To assist you, we offer a Quality-of-Life Scale, a thoughtful tool designed to evaluate your pet's well-being as objectively as possible. This scale considers various factors like pain level, hydration, and social interaction, helping you make an informed decision about your pet's care.

Consider these questions about your pet's daily habits and health, to give you a clearer picture of their overall quality of life.
