At-Home Hospice & Palliative Care

Comforting Care Veterinary Services offers animal hospice and palliative care services for pets with life limiting or incurable diseases and their families.

Animal Hospice includes the following services:

  • Care focused on providing pain control and physical comfort to the pet, as well as educational support and emotional comfort for caregivers.

  • A Hospice professional offers assistance in providing quality of life for the patient that includes palliation of pain and preparation for death (with or without intervention).

  • A veterinarian serving as a teacher, enabling family members to care for their pets medical and emotional needs at home.

  • Time for families to adjust to their pet's progressive disease and say goodbye in a kinder, more personal way.

Many pet parents choose hospice care in order to participate in decision making about their pet's end-of-life needs, giving the entire family time to prepare for the pending goodbye to their companions and to plan for a peaceful death.

If you have the resources to support comfort care, the time and desire to care for your pet during the last days or weeks of their life, and a good support team in place, then hospice care may be the right choice for you and your pet.
