Preferred Hospice Care for Pets
In recent years, it has become more and more common for pet parents to elect for in-home hospice care for their beloved pet when comfort is the best option. Seeing your pet’s quality of life decrease to the point where there is no longer a good quality of life is understandably a very emotional and difficult time, but our in-home hospice care services will allow your pet to live as comfortable as possible, surrounded by their best friends. At All About Restful Pets, we promise to do everything we can to ensure both you and your pet are able to make the most of the time you have and spend some final quality time together.
What Is Pet Hospice Care?
Pet Hospice Care is an option when your trusted companion is terminally ill, and there is no longer a cure. Once all options have been exhausted, our experienced team of veterinarians will work with you to determine if it’s possible for your pet to live comfortably for a period of time. If so, the transition will be from cure to care. All About Restful Pets, will help your pet be able to live as comfortably as possible in the final stage of life. This also allows you, as a pet parent, to have time to prepare.
Pet hospice care encompasses a wide range of modalities and possible treatments. This can range from medicine for pain management to bandage and wound care to managing your pet’s environment for safety. Equally important is the necessary education about end-stages and disease processes, so you are equipped with the knowledge to best assist your pet.
When you schedule a hospice visit with us, we will come to your home and fully examine your pet’s medical record and take some time to get personally acquainted with both you and your pet. After a physical examination, we will work together with you to draw up a treatment plan best suited for your pet with the aim of maintaining the best quality of life possible.
After the initial visit, we will conduct follow-up care as necessary, including additional visits. Of course, if an emergency situation arises, feel free to reach out to us first. If you have been seeing a veterinarian prior to the disease diagnosis, we will stay in contact with them and all other specialists involved so all parties are fully aware of what’s going on in order to provide the best in-home hospice care possible.
We understand this can be a trying process for you and your loved ones, so we suggest you speak with us about any questions you may have. Our goal is to give your pet the very best end of life care available, and we also want to help ensure you receive the support necessary. For more information on how we can assist you, call us today.
